  • "A lovely warm welcome from Alison, along with a cream tea."

    There is everything you need for a holiday although we did take extra things we didn't need many of them. One word of warning - ignore satnav directions as it sent us down a bridle path which was totally unsuitable for motor vehicles!! We also ordered a Hellofresh delivery which came with no problem and saved some shopping.

Offering family and pet-friendly accommodation in Devon, the cottage welcomes four guests to escape to the countryside, with the spectacular coast within easy reach.

Park up in the off-road parking before following the path to your home-away-from-home.

A small porch area is ideal for kicking off your boots before heading to the kitchen/diner; this sleek, stylish space has all the contemporary fittings for a self-catering stay, including a dishwasher to do the cleaning for you.

The handy utility is just next door with a freezer and washing machine to clean sandy towels or walking gear!

Retire to the sitting room with cushioned seats and a TV for evening entertainment, where your canine companions can curl up in front of the woodburning stove.

For a quiet sanctuary, head to the conservatory with seating to curl up with a good book or simply admire your surroundings.

Step out into the rear garden, enclosed for pets and children to play in safety, and set up on the outdoor seating to catch the last of the sunshine.

Climb the stairs to find the shower room, with a spacious, double walk-in shower to freshen up, as well as a handy ground-floor cloakroom to avoid bathroom queues!

Two bedrooms await sleepy heads, a king-size with ample storage and beautiful views to greet you every morning, whilst the twin has a separate dressing room with storage space.

Start your day with a refreshing walk in the adjoining field with your dogs.

You'll find a nearby pub for home-cooked meals and well-earned pints, while the river-port town of Barnstaple is just a short journey away; discover historic artefacts of North Devon at the Museum, catch a performance at the Queen's Theatre, and visit the Barnstaple Pannier Market.

Bideford is another historic port town with a fabulous art gallery and museum, as well as the nearby BIG Sheep for family-friendly amusements.

Those seeking Devon's renowned coast can visit Westward Ho! and Ilfracombe, two coastal resorts offering amenities and attractions for your day of sand castle making, swimming and sun bathing.

About the location


Exeter 40 miles.

Barnstaple enjoys a superb location at the mouth of the Taw Estuary, on the spectacular North Devon coastline between Westward Ho! and Croyde and is a short drive from the Exmoor National Park. Barnstaple is a busy traditional Devon coastal town with a pannier market, shops, restaurants and bars, along with two fabulous sandy beaches, which are popular with surfers and families. The town is renowned for its floral displays having won a Britain in Bloom award and flowers are found around every corner of the town in the most unusual places. Barnstaple lies at the end of the magnificent Tarka line railway journey, which takes you through the spectacular North Devon countryside of wooded river valleys, rugged moorland and a stretch of coastline, plus close by is the picture postcard coastal village of Clovelly. A combination of numerous long sandy beaches and family attractions makes Barnstaple a desirable holiday destination.
