Clovelly 3 miles.
Converted from a former barn, this quirky Grade II listed cottage is within a group of similar properties, and offers a rural retreat near Higher Clovelly on the dramatic North Devon coast.
The accommodation is all on the first floor and from this elevated position there are dramatic views across open countryside towards Bideford Bay, where glimpses of the sea are afforded on a fine day.
The elegant hallway leads to a spacious open plan living area with large arched windows, high vaulted ceilings with original wooden beams and an oak floor.
Flooded with light and full of character, this room has stunning sea views, making it perfect for spending time with the family.
The large master bedroom is reached from the living room and has an en-suite shower room.
There is also an attractive spiral staircase leading to a small mezzanine seating area where you can gaze for hours at the far-reaching views towards the sea.
There is another double bedroom with wooden beams off the hallway, plus a twin room, both sharing a family bathroom with a roll-top bath.
The garden is a short walk from the front door and offers a peaceful spot for an evening barbecue, and the surrounding countryside has plenty of footpaths to explore, particularly the South West Coast Path which has stunning views across the bay.
The popular fishing villages of Hartland, Clovelly and Bucks Mill are close by and make a great day out, or why not spend time on the many beaches in the area, surfing, swimming or just lazing on the sands with a good book?

About the location
Bideford 8 miles.
The picturesque fishing village of Clovelly occupies a secluded, cliffside position and attracts visitors from the world over. A pedestrianised, cobbled street winds its way down the hillside passing the colourful gardens that characterise the village's pretty, whitewashed cottages, on its way down to the sheltered harbour. Local shops, pubs and restaurants crowd the working harbour from where the local fishermen show their daily catch of mackerel and check their lobster pots. Follow the stunning coast over the clifftops toward the romantic Hartland Point, or to the colourful market town of Bideford, with its quaint quay, medieval bridge and vibrant shopping area. Nearby, the famous Westward Ho! provides superb beaches and excellent watersports opportunities, while the Big Sheep Adventure Park will occupy the whole family! A beautiful and inspirational location for a memorable holiday.
