  • “Gorgeous cottage!!”
    We couldn't not review Vineyard Cottage after our stay this week. ...
    We couldn't not review Vineyard Cottage after our stay this week. This GORGEOUS cottage has been perfect for our stay (2 adults & our daughter) in the heart of Devon. The cottage, itself, has everything you need - from a washing machine, to a bath, wood burning stove, dining table and more! The living room is traditional & cosey, with a central long burning stove. The modern kitchen has everything you need and more. Whilst the bedrooms provide you with the best night's sleep you've had in a long time. The bathroom is clean, modern and the shower is lovely. On top of the essentials, you have a small courtyard & storages areas for bikes/canoes etc. Additionally, there is the most well stocked corner shop you've ever seen a minute's walk from the cottage. A local cider farm (all the essentials!) a five minute walk away. Along with two pubs a couple of minutes walk away - our recommendation would be the Seven Stars has a pool table, darts board & Sky/BT Sport to watch the football/cricket on, to fill the time on a rainy day. On top of all of these amenities & cottage features, we were provided with milk, apple juice & eggs on arrival which was a lovely personal touch. On top of this, the cottage has lots of spices/oil/tea & non perishable essentials also in the cupboards (or it did for us anyway!). We have loved our time at Vineyard Cottage & we would recommend it to anyone!

The property

This charming thatched terraced cottage is in the heart of the quiet Devon village of Winkleigh, situated between Dartmoor National Park and the dramatic North Devon Coast.

Dating back to the 18th century and being Grade II listed means that this cosy cottage is packed full of character, including exposed beams and an inglenook fireplace housing a woodburning stove.

A rural bolt hole, the cottage is beautifully presented and provides an ideal holiday home for five people with a separate sitting room, dining room and kitchen with underfloor heating on the ground floor, plus there is a double, twin and single bedroom, as well as a bathroom with underfloor heating on the first floor.

There is a small courtyard to the rear and there are fabulous country walks in the beautiful surrounding countryside, and with the dramatic appeal of Dartmoor just 10 miles away, the whole area is a walker’s and nature lover’s paradise.

Winkleigh is a friendly rural village offering two pubs, a cafe, shop and Post Office, as well as its own cider company!

The gorgeous sandy beaches of north west Devon including Westward Ho!, Saunton Sands and Woolacombe are all just 40 minutes' by car.
