Beautiful cottage with a hunter feal, and tons of character. North Devon is a real hidden gem area of the country, with plenty to so and see. There is something for everyone, wildlife parks such as the one at Combe Martin for kids, or surfing the coast for the big kids in places such as Suanton sands. There are very nice places to wine and dine. I Read morerecommend the Jack Russell at Swimbridge. Hide

Shops about 1Read more5 mins drive and local pub about 5 mins drive. Plenty of lovely sandy beaches especially Saunton Sands which is dog friendly. A really lovely holiday Hide

A very well equipped and comfortable house. The garden is lovely and if the weather had been warmer we would have spent the evenings out there the garden is relatively safe for dogs as it is fenced. however be careful of the steps and level changes if you have elderly or younger children in your party.. parking is on a country road, which can be buRead moresy at times but there was room for our 3 cars. A very nice cottage with plenty of room for 6 or 8 people. Hide
