This cosy but luxurious cottage in a tiny Devon hamlet is the perfect getaway in the quiet countryside for couples.

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 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 ice box. 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 small BBQ - the perfect area for al fresco dining on a warm Devon evening in summer! Ample parking is available.

Our stay in caraway was fantastic. We could not ask for a more comfortable place to stay. It is an excellent base to fully explore the locality. The welcome from owners was first class. The cream ta and wine just added to the stay. We will definitely staying here again.

The cottage was lovely, peaceful and very well equipped. We were welcomed with a cream tea, bottle of wine and chocolates. There were lots of maps and information leaflets in the cottage to help plan days out, plus DVDs and books for days in. A lovely garden, with stunning views, ample parking and a cosy kitchen/lounge area.

This was a really well appointed rustic type cottage, just off the main road between Ilfracombe and Barnstaple. The gardens were extensive and extremely well tended with a variety of shrubs and plants. Plenty of car park space in a secure area. Great for either a short break or a weeks holiday. The people who owned it were warm and friendly and 'weRead morelcome pack' of scones and clotted cream, just a small touch but much appreciated. Hide

Lovely and friendly owners, and a warm and cosy cottage. This is in an ideal location for walks, sightseeing and tourist hotspots. We arrived and awaiting us was a cream tea, bottle of wine and chocolates. We will definitely be returning and would thoroughly recommend this property to others.
