About the property

Sleeps 6

Hugglepit Cottage is a 17th Century delight with exposed wooden beams and an inglenook fireplace. Two large living rooms provide ample space indoors. The first is a dining and living space with open fire and the second a large and unique space for larger parties. French windows open out onto a patio for barbeques and the orchard. An acre of gardens and woodland means there is plenty of space to play, relax and explore. Two double and two single rooms in the same character mean a comfortable nights sleep for all.

2nd stay in this wonderful cottage.

Comfy beds, wonderful views across the coast. Surrounded by fields. Quintessential country cottage but larger

Wonderful homely bolthole in stunning area

  • 5 of 5

Hugglepit lived up to our (high!) expectations and provided a wonderful base for a lovely family week in Devon. The area is gorgeous, much wilder and more unspoilt that we expected, and walking down to Clovelly was a delight. The cottage is big and very tastefully furnished. The garden is wonderful. Highly recommended.

The picture says it all!

  • 5 of 5

Reluctant to reveiw as it would mean too many bookings from others!

If you want a character cottage that has comfortable beds & furniture is also surrounded by green fields with distant sea views then Huglepit is the place for you.

We know the area well with friends in a nearby village & thought we had stayed in the best available dog friendly cottages but this trumps them all. Down stairs bedroom perfect for those that can't get up the old original stairs to the other bedrooms.

Loved it.

Wonderful Cottage

  • 5 of 5

What a find. A fabulous cottage in a wonderful location. Hugglepit had everything we wanted. Lovely location, beautiful views, warm cosy fires, outstanding wildlife garden. We really did not want to leave. Angela was very kind and the welcome gift of bread, biscuits etc was very much appreciated. If you are looking for a quiet get away in a cottage that is so cosy, warm and well equipped, a garden that is teaming with wildlife , located in a beautiful part of Devon... Hugglepit is the just the ticket. Cannot wait to return

Hugglepit Cottage is an ideal holiday retreat for couples and families alike. From the rugged cliffs of Hartland Point to the sandy beaches of Westward Ho! and Bude and within easy walking distance of the picturesque village of Clovelly, Hugglepit Cottage has something for everyone.

For Children, the Milky Way adventure park is less than five minutes' drive away and the Big Sheep offers some extreme adventuring. For bigger kids, the surfing along the north coast of Cornwall is second to none in the UK. For cyclists and ramblers, Hugglepit is also close to the Tarka Trail and the South West coast path.

This 17th Century delight with exposed wooden beams and an inglenook fireplace sleeps up to seven people. Two sitting rooms provide ample space for families to spread out and relax, and an acre of gardens and woodland offers space to play, relax and explore.
