Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday cottage in North Tawton - Bell Tower Cottage - Ashwater

3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms & sleeps 5. Delightful garden and off road parking.

This beautiful Grade II* listed cottage is set in the heart of a peaceful Devon village and offers a great touring base. The cottage dates back to 1420 and has a wealth of character, with exposed beams, inglenook fireplace with log burner and a delightful private garden. The cottage has been sympathetically restored to a very high standard with a chic well equipped kitchen, 2 double and 1 single bedrooms and 2 bathrooms with shower and a luxurious corner bath. The large sitting room has 2 big sofas, great for friends or for curling up peacefully to watch a movie or read.

The dining room is open to the kitchen, which makes entertaining easy and it is cosy for a romantic dinner. A second bathroom, next to the kitchen, has a spacious corner shower, pedestal basin & toilet, with a washing machine & tumble dryer to make any laundry easy to do. It is a perfect retreat if you just want to get away for a while.

The garden is private, beautifully maintained and full of colour in the summer months. There is a large table and 6 chairs where you can sit under the pergola and admire the wonderful views.

The cottage is situated by the village green where there is a quaint pub with restaurant 100 yards away. There is also a church and village shop close by. You can explore the breathtaking North Devon & Cornwall coastline, with spectacular cliffs and sandy beaches, ideal for surfing, swimming, sailing and sub aqua diving.

Stunning, character cottage, idyllic location

  • 5 out of 5
This stunning, grade 2 listed cottage provided a tranquil, relaxing break for our family over the Christmas period. Recently refurbished, it provided a fantastic warm, comfortable stay in an area which provides great opportunities for visiting the national parks and local coastlines of North Devon and Cornwall.
With great rooms, all fitted out to a very high standard. The village was delightful with a local stores manned by volunteers and a great local pub with good food. Within easy reach of the coast and all the national parks, this provides a superb base for exploring both Devon and Cornwall.
