For those who like to spend time exploring the great outdoors, the beautiful Exmoor National Park is just a short drive away, offering miles of scenic walks, cycleways and coastal paths. Of course, Devon is known for its beaches and seaside resorts, and the location of this property means that beach lovers will be spoilt for choice, with Westward Ho!, Saunton Sands, Croyde, and Woolacombe all being within a reasonable driving distance.
On arrival at this pretty, thatched cottage, guests will immediately be able to pop the kettle on and make themselves at home in the spacious kitchen/diner.

One of the property’s bedrooms can also be found on the ground floor: a cosy twin room which has a TV point which can be used by moving the TV from the kitchen. A ground floor shower room with WC is conveniently situated for guests using this bedroom. The property’s relaxing lounge is situated on the first floor, where a balcony opens onto stunning countryside views. There is comfortable sofa seating here, as well as TV/DVD. The second bedroom is also located on the first floor: a lovely double room. (Guests should be aware that this room has some reduced head height due to the sloping ceilings). The bathroom on this floor offers a bath and WC.
Outside, there is a pretty, enclosed garden, mainly set to lawn, with mature trees and flowered borders, as well as garden furniture and a BBQ. Guests also have access to a neighbouring field. Ample off-road parking is provided.
