Property code: FOLLY

Attractive cottage, one of four in this tranquil location, just a short drive from the coast and five miles south of Bideford.

This cottage enjoys a quiet countryside location, two miles from the village of Buckland Brewer with its popular pub and traditional butchers. Further afield, the historic port town of Bideford is just five miles away from the property, with its independent shops and narrow streets. From here, visitors may wish to enjoy a boat trip to the National Trust owned island of Lundy, with its puffins and herd of Sika deer. This converted grain store offers visitors a wonderful rural getaway and the cottage itself acts as a retreat from everyday life.

Accessing the property up the four external steps, guests will come straight to the ground-floor lounge area, which offers traditional stone floors, comfortable seating, a TV, DVD, and a wood burner effect electric fire. Down two stairs and tucked away behind an exposed brick wall is the kitchen/diner, with its dining table for two and its kitchen area, where guests will find an oven, hob, microwave, and fridge with ice compartment. Open-tread stairs lead from the lounge to the upstairs accommodation, where there is an attractive double bedroom and an en-suite shower room with WC.

Outside, the property enjoys direct access to the public footpath, from where many countryside walks can be enjoyed and the owner’s land may also be accessed by prior arrangement. There is ample off-road parking.

Lovely cottage, well equipped & warm & clean. Quiet location. Only problem is finding the place.

A pleasant nicely equipped cottage it was warm comfortable and in a very quiet location. It was ideal for a restful break but with easy access of the coastal areas.

The cottage was home from home. Everything required was provided. Our hosts had left us a cream tea on arrival and also a bottle of prosecco to celebrate a special occasion

We were made very welcome at the Folly where the absolute peace and tranquility were so welcome. Sadly we had to leave after only two days due to sudden family illness at home . Our hosts were so kind about this and offered to tidy everything up.

A comfortable get away from it all cottage. Easy driveable distance to some wonderful walks and visits. Enjoyed our stay.

Reviewed by David, 18th August 2018

However the location was 3 miles of winding single track and blind corner roads, not suitable for walking or cycling, I believe if this information was available prior to our holiday we would have chosen a different location. I do not want to detract away from the cottage as it was extremely comfortable and for those looking for a remote holiday thRead moreis would be perfect. Hide
