Beautifully restored spacious cottage . Perfectly situated for exploring North Devon coastline .

5 of 5
I always wanted to return to North Devon after spending many happy holidays there as a child . I arranged a 5 day break at the cottage meeting up with close friends from Norwich and Germany. I spent many hours trying to find a property that would be suitable for 3 generations and close to all my favourite places to visit . The cottage was simply perfect . 4 good sized bedrooms and 3 bathrooms . Clare has spent a lot of time and effort creating a spacious country farmhouse cottage with a cosy homely feel with everything you need for a fabulous stay . The children - big and small - had great fun playing table tennis and table football in the conservatory. The back and front gardens are very private, the garden at the rear of the cottage is large enough to enjoy a lovely b b q . It also extends to the side where there is a super play area and field for a game of football . Views are stunning . With in a few miles you are well in to the Exmoor National Park . We headed to Woolacombe , Linton and Lynmouth for a trip on the railway and ilfracombe . We also enjoyed a days trip to Bude in North Cornwall stopping off to see the beautiful fishing village of Clovelly . The high light for me was the tunnel beaches in Ilfracome .. a small entrance fee but worth every penny . Clare was extremely helpful in making our stay go as smoothly as possible . Thank you once again we had a really lovely few days Grace and friends
