  • Mrs Bousfield

    “Overall the cottage was very well equipped and decorated.”

    The furniture was good quality.

    The furniture was good quality. If there was room for improvement I would say black out curtains are needed in the back bedrooms as its gets very light at 5.30am. upstairs is a bit noisy with bare floor boards but we managed ok. It was a very nice cottage and we had a nice comfortable stay.

The property

If you’re looking for a base to explore everything the South West has to offer from the rolling hills of Exmoor to the expansive sandy beaches on the Devon coast, then Woodville Cottage is perfect.

This wonderfully presented, charming historic cottage dating back to 1850 rests within the market town of South Molton.

It is an ex groom’s cottage which was part of a grand home and stable block which housed American soldiers during WWII so has a real story to tell.

This superb cottage offers a seamless blend of creative styling and charming character features to offer a memorable base for a family holiday to this stunning part of the country.

You are firstly welcomed into the pristine kitchen, where you can gather of an evening around the island unit to enjoy a glass of wine whilst the designated chef of the group makes the most of the quality appliances required to rustle up a home-cooked meal.

Settle down for dinner at the well-presented dining table, where you can tuck into your evening meal and plan the days ahead before sinking into the plush sofas and cosying up around the electric log burner.

There is also the benefit of a lovely enclosed patio area, where you can catch the last glimpses of sunshine during a balmy evening in complete privacy.

As the evening draws to a close, venture up to the first floor to discover three contemporary-styled bedrooms, comprising a double, a twin and a bedroom with bunk beds ensuring a flexible sleeping arrangement to suit any group.

Each bedroom enjoys a bright colour palette, unique styling and ample storage for a week-long break, ensuring tranquil spaces to come back to each evening.

The interior is completed by the well-appointed bathroom, where you will find a stylish claw-foot bath, rainfall shower, basin and WC.

If you can tear yourself away from this sublime base, a short stroll will bring you to a selection of pubs and restaurants to suit all tastes, as well as a choice of independent shops for picking up the essentials.

Within the bustling town of South Molton, you will find the Quince Honey Farm, award-winning museums and a chocolate factory, each offering a wonderful family day out, and it's the place for architectural antiques, collectibles and vintage clothing.

You will also find an indoor market every Thursday and Saturday, offering local produce, crafts and clothing, making great gifts to bring back home.

For the more adventurous or active why not spend the day enjoying exhilarating activities at the Rock and Rapid Adventure Centre on the outskirts of the town or make full use of the town swimming pool just a short walk away.

South Molton is known as the Gateway to Exmoor so those feeling active can venture to the Exmoor National Park, where you can explore miles of moorland housing ancient geology sites, historical houses and an abundance of wildlife.

As well as the choice of beaches, a trip to famous harbour town of Clovelly there are also characterful coastal towns like Appledore which also hosts a Book Festival held in September and the Two Moors Classical Music Festival in October.

Being just a short trip away from the main North Devon Link Road, the town is easy to get to but also means exploring further afield is easy, and the only limitation is your imagination.
