This charming three bedroom cottage in the much sought after village of Parracombe, only a short drive from Lynton and Lynmouth, is a paradise for walkers and families alike. On the ground floor Rockleigh has a cosy living room at the front of the property and a kitchen at the rear that overlooks the little walled patio garden. The living room features a wood burning stove within a stone inglenook fireplace, and two comfortable sofas. A pine Welsh dresser, natural wood units and wooden bench style worktops complement the slate tiled floor in the well equipped kitchen/dining area which is served by an oiled fired Rayburn and a large pine dining table.
Stairs lead from the kitchen up to three bedrooms and a modern family bathroom. The attractive master bedroom has an en-suite shower room. The twin room has dual aspect, with views over the village and surrounding countryside. The final room is has bunk beds with room for the travel cot if required.
I was born and brought up in landlocked rural Derbyshire and now we are living in central Bath we have a desire to have a getaway in the rolling countryside within a stones throw of the beach!
Louise Ball purchased this cottage in 2000
We've had Rockleigh longer than any other house we've ever owned - it ticks all the right boxes for us. It's remote enough to leave behind our busy working lives but close enough to so many exciting things in North Devon that we are never bored. Busy days and cosy nights abound!
After a day on the beach or a walk on the moor, its the perfect cottage to come home to, whether it's for a glass of red wine curled up on the sofa in the winter, or an early evening bbq in the little back yard in the summer - it's relaxing to say the least!
Rockleigh is in the heart of the delightful and picturesque village of Parracombe and close to the Hunters Inn Valley. Parracombe has the award winning Fox and Goose Pub, which has an excellent reputation for locally produced food and a well stocked village shop that can supply your daily requirements with local fare and your morning papers.
Wistlandpound Reservoir is close by, an angler's paradise, amidst woodland it is perfect for a picnic in this peaceful unspoilt countryside. Also near is Exmoor Zoological Park, the NT property Arlington Court and the Lorna Doone Valley.
The closest beach is Lee Bay, or drive a little further and spend all day on beautiful sandy beaches surfing, swimming or just building sandcastles on either Croyde, Woolacombe or Saunton Sands (most of which are dog-friendly in parts).
Enjoy the wooded rugged coastline of Exmoor which boast the highest cliffs in England or the spectacular scenery from Dunkery Beacon with wild red deer and Exmoor ponies.
Other Activities: Championship Golf Course at Saunton Sands, Local to S. West Coastal Path
