This fantastic, detached light-filled barn conversion is an ideal base if you are into walking, cycling, surfing, or prefer to just sit back and relax. No attention to detail has been forgotten, making this a truly unforgettable retreat.

Ideally located close to some of North Devon’s finest beaches, you can explore Westward Ho!, Saunton Sands, Croyde and Woolacombe from this property, and all are popular with surfers and bathers alike. The regional towns of Barnstaple and South Molton are nearby with popular pannier markets.

Other attractions include the gardens at RHS Rosemoor, Dartington Crystal, Quince Honey Farm and The Milky Way Adventure Park.

Entering the stylish property, you are immediately greeted by a hall with a useful cloakroom where you can hang coats and store sandy shoes after a day on the beach. From here, step into the light and airy open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner with a contemporary wood burner-effect electric fire. Settle in for a snug evening with a feast, a bottle of wine and a film on the Smart TV. The perfectly equipped kitchen has an induction hob and electric oven which cleverly doubles up as a microwave, plus a fridge, freezer, dishwasher, Nespresso coffee machine and washing machine; it is a great space for cooking lazy breakfasts or trying out new recipes. Head up the beautiful oak staircase to the king-size bedroom which boasts a stunning apex ceiling complete with exposed beams. Completing the accommodation is the contemporary en-suite shower room with a shower and WC.

Outside, there is a private secluded courtyard garden with a gate that leads to the shared enclosed dog paddock with its far-reaching countryside views, great for both you and your four-legged friends to enjoy and relax in.

My husband and I stayed at Pippin Cottage for 3 nights. The cottage was immaculate and Mick was a lovely host. We needed something suitable for our dog and the facilities were great as had covers provided for the sofa and a paddock for her. The hot tub was fantastic and was just what we needed after a wet and windy walk on the beach! Only downside Read morewas no pubs with food nor beaches within walking distance. Recommend dinner at The Boathouse on Instow beach! Also Putsborough beach for dog walk. Hide

An outstanding cottage with everything you need to have the most memorable stay. The standard of finish is first class and we were well looked after.
