About Deborah Smallbone
We bought the Grove Inn in beautiful Kings Nympton in 2003 after leaving the rat race of London. Since then we have had 2 wonderful boys and have loved building up the pub to what it is today. In 2008 we decided to buy and renovate the thatch cottage across the lane. After literally taking it apart (at one time only the roof, floor and bath were standing!) it was lovingly restored to what it is today. We wanted people to experience our fabulous village so decide to rent it out to holiday makers. Over the years we have had many people returning time after time for the tranquility and peace Owl Cottage offers
Deborah Smallbone purchased this Cottage in 2008
Why Deborah Smallbone chose Umberleigh
North Devon is truly a wonderful area to explore. You have the spectacular coastline with it's long sandy beaches and rocky coves as well as two national parks - Exmoor and Dartmoor. Owl Cottage in Kings Nympton is ideally situated to explore all of these. The traditional thatched cottage is at the heart of a thriving village and really allows you to experience true village life.
What makes this Cottage unique
Sitting outside, having a drink in the evening sun, listening to the birds and the hum of village life you could be in paradise!

It’s a lovely place
The Pub meal was fantastic, the Village is lovely too very one seem to be very friendly. Will go back one day
A charming cottage in a friendly village
Owl Cottage is comfortable and thoughtfully restored and equipped, in a very peaceful and attractive village. Robert and Deborah, the helpful owners, run the very convenient local pub, The Grove, an important hub in village life. The food is excellent there, with a varied selection using local produce. There is much to see in the area but allow time for the journey! Devon roads can be narrow and slow. We were sorry to leave a day early because of illness but thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
Character cottage nestled in peaceful Devon Village within yards of county pub serving amazing food.
Lovely thatched cottage with wood burner and well kitted out kitchen. Very comfortable bed and lounge sofas! Lots of low ceilings, as expected!. Bathroom adequate, but would benefit from a little upgrading. The car parking on the square could be an issue on returning in evening, as doesn't appear to be a designated space for cottage and local residents may have guests visiting etc.
Wonderful welcome from Rob Smallbone, and bonus of being able to do take away dinner from the pub. Unfortunately, pub closed 2 nights of our stay ....
Lovely comfortable cottage in beautiful little village!
We had a great week touring in North Devon. Great sleep every night in comfy beds, feeling so refreshed!
The Grove Inn is lovely, locals very friendly and food is amazing. We also ate in the Castle a few miles away, which was good food.
We enjoyed our stay so much, we will be back to recharge the batteries in the future. Thank you to Deborah and Robert for the welcome pack, much appreciated.
Lovely cottage, with everything you could want, and a welcome pack from the owner's. Beautiful village and delicious food at the Grove Inn with friendly people, would definitely recommend.
Gentle rolling countryside surrounds this beautifully restored thatched cottage nestling in the pretty village of Kings Nympton, midway between Exmoor and Dartmoor. Ideally placed for walkers and within easy reach of the spectacular North Devon coastline, Owl Cottage is perfect for couples or small families at any time of year.
