Situated in the North Devon countryside, this upside-down cottage is an idyllic retreat away from the hustle and bustle of city life. The sandy and surfing beach of Woolacombe is just three miles away and has a range of bars, restaurants and a lively nightlife if hamlet life is a bit too quiet for you! The beaches of Saunton and Croyde are also within easy reach, as is bustling Ilfracombe. Exmoor National Park is a short drive away and offers those with a sense of adventure the opportunity to explore a part of Devon which is seldom seen by visitors.
Entry to this pretty cottage, set in a secluded Devonshire idyll, is downstairs. Enjoying an inverse layout, here you will find one king bedroom with a TV and a bathroom with shower over bath and WC. The lounge/kitchen/diner, which is upstairs, benefits from a spacious open-plan layout. Complete with comfy seating and a TV/DVD, it is a cosy spot to catch up on your favourite TV shows and films – or to simply curl up and read a book. If you would prefer to stay in and cook than go out, the custom-built kitchen offers an oven and hob, dishwasher, microwave and fridge with an icebox. There is also a shared utility room in an outhouse adjacent to the property which has a washing machine, tumble dryer and freezer.
Off the lounge is a secluded private patio area and garden with stunning countryside views, seating and a small BBQ – the perfect area for al fresco dining on a warm Devon evening in summer! Ample parking is available.

Woolacombe is a large seaside town with lots to offer all ages. The town offers a friendly, lively atmosphere. The town has a mix of convenience stores, pubs, restaurants, 2 small cinemas and a nightclub. It is also a haven for wildlife. Lundy Island is home to Devon's puffin population. It is also visited by seals, dolphins and porpoises. It is also an area that sees a variety of migrating birds returning to the town every year for breeding. With 3 miles of golden sand, Woolacombe beach has won the Blue Flag and Premier Seaside Beach Awards for its cleanliness and water quality. It is very popular with families as there is a lifeguard on patrol over the summer. The beach is also popular with locals for surfing and a range of other water activities. Barricane Bay to the north end of the beach has a cafe offering fantastic views and great food. This is open from early Spring to late Autumn. High tide can reduce beach space here so it is best to check the tide times. A little further up the beach is Combegate beach which is great for exploring the rock pools. For those horse enthusiasts, Woolacombe stables can offer a unique beach ride.
