About the property

3-bedroom countryside cottage sleeping up to 6, within easy reach of Woolacombe

Higher Mullacott Farm where Aggie's Cottage is located is nestled within the foothills of the North Devon coast, providing the ideal position from which to explore the wider North Devon area and Exmoor. With buildings dating back to the time of the Domesday Book, the pretty barn conversion is able to combine period charm with modern day elegance, think wood beams meet contemporary decor.

Aggie's cottage sleeps 6 (+ cot) in three bedrooms and is a beautifully furnished property bursting with charm and character, making it an ideal holiday cottage for families or couples. The cottage can also be booked alongside its sister cottage Dolly's Barn, which can accommodate up to 11 in six bedrooms.

Aggie's Cottage has been lovingly restored and is set within 3.5 acres of gardens and paddocks, making it the perfect property for an escape to the country. With its excellent location, it is easy to explore North Devon and beyond from Higher Mullacott Farm.

The beaches at Woolacombe, Croyde and Saunton are all less than a 15 minute drive, and Exmoor with its pretty villages and rugged landscape is half an hour away.

Aggie's Cottage is a charming three bedroom period property full of character, with wood beams and slanting ceilings. The cottage features an open plan living room with galley kitchen and comfy lounge/dining area. A stable door opens out onto the garden where you can enjoy a picnic or summer BBQ admiring the sea views, or read a good book in the peace and quiet.

Three steps up from the living area lie two wonderfully large bedrooms, the first features a king size double bed and the other is a pretty twin, perfect for adults and children. Both of the bedrooms are individually connected to the downstairs bathroom fitted with a shower, a WC and a wash-basin.

Upstairs lies the second double bedroom, this quaint room is full of character with its low beamed ceiling and views out of the dormer windows stretching towards the sea. It is the perfect room for couples with a double bed and plenty of storage. At the bottom of the stairs is the second bathroom, which features an original cast iron roll top bath and toilet with pull chain.

Aggie's Cottage has its own private garden area where guests can enjoy alfresco dinners or a summer BBQ. Alternatively, the grounds are available to wonder at your leisure and feature a summer house and a children's play area. The views from the garden are wonderful with the Atlantic Ocean glittering in the distance.

Good location, Lovely property.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Aggies Cottage for the first week in July... Lovely accomodation, fantastic weather and a good location, close to Ilfracombe and Woolacombe.

The property is well maintained, has quirky features, we found it clean and had everything we needed... Apart from a dishwasher... ! A bit disappointed by that since it was included in the property details.

The garden is huge, and kept nicely... We feel the outdoor seating could be more " user friendly " ... Tradional deckchairs are nice, but not the easiest or most comfortable for ladies of a certain age !

We would definitely recommend the property... The owners were welcoming and there was a cream tea awaiting us on our arrival... Very nice... Thank you.

Beautiful cottage close to everything you would ne

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Aggies Cottage for 5 nights with our 2 young boys (1 and 4) and absolutely loved it. There were 2 Easter eggs waiting for us as well which was a wonderful little touch. The Cottage was clean and beautifully decorated and had everything we needed within it. None of the amenities are too far away and the gorgeous coast is a short drive away. I would definitely recommend Aggies Cottage to anyone.

Other Activities:

There are many excellent beaches within only a few miles of Higher Mullacott Farm where Aggie's Cottage is located. The beaches, all of which hold the Blue Flag offer excellent places to enjoy a number of water sports, including surfing and kite-surfing. Many of the beaches also offer lessons to beginners, so it doesn't matter what your ability is.

Aggie's Cottage is set high on the cliffs above Ilfracombe, with sea views from the landscaped garden.

The cottage is about a mile away from Ilfracombe on the North Devon coast where visitors can choose from a range of bars and restaurants, browse the local shops or hop on board one of the boats setting sail for Lundy Island. Ilfracombe is home to Damian Hirst's statue 'Verity', which overlooks the gorgeous harbour, the contemporary artist also has his own bar/restaurant in the town. For something a little more special, the Olive Room is a Michelin star restaurant run by Tom Carr and well worth a visit.

For guests visiting the Tunnels or attending a wedding at the venue, Aggie's Cottage makes a great base as it is only a few minutes' drive away.

The trendy surfing villages of Woolacombe and Croyde are further along the coast, and about a 10-15 minute drive depending on the traffic. Woolacombe is the award-winning beach that many visitors will fall in love with thanks to its cleanliness and family friendly atmosphere; for surfers Croyde is a more popular choice with the waves setting a bigger challenge. Other nearby beaches include Saunton Sands, Lee Bay and Combe Martin, all of which have something different to offer their visitors. Watermouth Cove is also a great place to discover if you are interested in more extreme water sports such as jet ski-ing.

Within a half-hours drive of the cottage is Exmoor National Park, where visitors can admire the rugged landscape or stop off in one of the many tea rooms serving traditional cream teas. Combine your trip with a visit to Lynton and Lynmouth where Exmoor meets the sea, these pretty twin villages are linked by the Cliff Railway and are home to several craft shops selling a variety of souvenirs.

Also, close by are several attractions. For garden lovers RHS Rosemoor and Broomhill Scultputre Gardens are within easy reach, or alternatively for families there is the Big Sheep, Exmoor Zoo and the Combe Martin Wildlife Park. Many of the attractions within the local area will offer a discount if tickets are booked online, so it is well worth having a look at these before setting off.
