This cosy cottage is attached to an old chapel in the heart of Welcombe hamlet, 1½ miles from Welcombe Mouth.
Head down the steps to the porch into a hall where you can leave your boots and coats, and then through to the big country-style kitchen with its lovely traditional beams, Rayburn and dining area.
The sitting room is another cosy room where you can snuggle up beside the wood burning stove.
Head on up to your four bedrooms where you will sleep peacefully after exploring the lovely unspoiled scenery all around.
You have a sunny little bench to sit out and enjoy a morning coffee in your little enclosed garden.

About the location
Bude 12 miles; Bideford 14 miles.
A pretty country village just one mile from the high cliffs, rocky coves and golden sands of the north Devon/Cornwall coast, as well as the beach at Welcombe Mouth with its sand, rocks, and some fabulous waves to ride. West, along the coast, are excellent beaches at Widemouth Bay, Sandymouth and Bude. To the north the coast path winds its way toward Hartland Point Lighthouse and on to Clovelly (8 miles) with its steep cobbled streets leading down to the harbour and pub below. No cars allowed here but you can hire a donkey for the ride! In the nearby area are several farm and theme parks, golf courses and outstanding gardens whilst the amenities of Bude are a mere 12 miles away. Everything for an enjoyable holiday.
