Mary’s Cottage is a rural retreat resting in the village of Combe Martin in Exmoor National Park. Hosting two bedrooms; a family room and a double, (both with en-suite shower rooms), this property can sleep up to six people. Inside you will also find a cloakroom, kitchen, and a sitting room with a wood burner. To the outside is off road parking and a lawned garden with furniture. Situated on a working farm with many attractions nearby to explore, Mary’s Cottage is a characterful retreat for a memorable holiday in a lovely part of England.
Set down its own private country lane, in a secluded position, this charming country cottage is located amidst breath-taking countryside with distant views of the dramatic coastline of North Devon. Whether you are planning a romantic break for two or a family holiday, this retreat has everything you need to feel right at home. Upon entering, you will be welcomed by a country-style kitchen, housing necessary essentials and a dining table where everyone can gather together in the evening. For more quality time, the characterful sitting room hosts a sofa and arm chairs, along with a woodburner and inglenook fireplace, so you can relax amongst the warm ambience with your loved ones. On the ground floor you will also find a cloakroom complete with a wash stand. Take the stairs up to the nicely decorated double bedroom, finished to a high standard with a traditional feel. If you are looking for extra space, perhaps for the children, a family bedroom offers a double bed, as well as children's bunks. And conveniently, both rooms have a delightful en-suite shower room. Resting on an award-winning working farm, and close to a wealth of attractions, there is much to see around the area, from National Trust’s Arlington Court, the resorts of Ilfracombe, to Lynton and Lynmouth. A little further afield is the ancient town of Barnstaple, with its Doomsday associations and here you can find a good selection of shops, restaurants and a museum. Or, if you simply prefer to watch the world go by then visit the quiet harbours and picturesque ports or enjoy a leisurely cream tea at a traditional Country Inn before returning to Mary`s Cottage for a well-earned rest. A memorable retreat not to be missed.
Combe Martin exemplifies the best of both worlds lying on the edge of Exmoor National Park and the North Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty while being on the popular North Devon coast. It is home to Combe Martin Beach, a sandy sheltered beach with some rocks to one side that is perfect for rockpooling that accepts pets between October and April. For a bit more seclusion take a 2km walk (steep in places) to Wild Pear Beach a very pretty cove protected by cliffs with more golden sands to enjoy. A visit to Combe Martin Wildlife and Dinosaur is a must, set in beautiful surroundings with streams and waterfalls with a diverse collection of animals including meerkats, wolves, triceratops and brachiosaurus! No fewer than 10 gardens are within travelling distance as well as a host of National Trust properties you may need to stay an extra week to take everything in.
