If your looking for a quiet haven for a peaceful break in the country, The Garden Cottage is just what you are looking for. This little gem is set in the grounds of a large country house, but as it is tucked around the back with it's own private entrance and garden you do not feel overlooked in any way.
The cottage has a large bedroom with a king-size bed and walk-in wardrobe, a spacious lounge, which overlooks the lovely garden, a bathroom with shower, and a well-equipped kitchen.
Whatever the time of year, The Garden Cottage offers guests a wonderfully relaxing bolt-hole to unwind and relax. Each season comes with it's own charm, in the winter hide away from the elements in the cosy cottage enjoying a glass of wine or playing games in the warmth of the lounge, in spring, walk in the stunning gardens and marvel at the beautiful flowers, which are coming to life, and finally in both the summer and autumn, when the days are the longest and the sun is shining discover the wonders of the ever changing colours of the countryside and the miles of golden beaches on the North Devon coastline.
The Garden Cottage is set in the pretty hamlet of Kingscott and near the historical town of Great Torrington, famous for the site of a great Civil War battle between the Roundheads and Cavaliers. The area is blessed with wonderful rolling countryside and is honeycombed with walks and cycle paths, with the famous Tarka Trail starting or ending at the Puffing Billy pub just outside Torrington. There are lots of really good pubs in the area with the New Inn only a short drive away from the cottage and serving award winning food and good local beer.
Explore North Devon towns like Bideford, Barnstaple and Ilfracombe or admire the coastal villages of Clovelly, Westward Ho! and Appledore, all offer travellers a taste of the local area.
For those seeking an activity holiday, Devon offers something for everyone, with some of the best surfing in the UK at Saunton, Croyde and Woolacombe. Kite surfing is also popular at the beaches on the North coast.
The wilds of Exmoor or the coastal footpath offer walks that will challenge the most adventurous and there is great cycling on the Tarka Trail, which stretches from North Devon to Dartmoor. If you would rather have a more relaxed day out, the gardens at RHS Rosemoor are only 2 miles away and have 65 acres of stunning gardens to explore. There are also large country houses to visit at Tapley Park and Arlington Court.
So, not only is The Garden Cottage a lovely place to relax and unwind it also offers guests a great base to explore the region.
