Attractive cottage situated between the seaside town of Westward Ho! and the village of Northam in North Devon, just a fifteen minute walk to the local sandy beach.

This property is situated just a five minute walk from the village of Northam, which offers a choice of pubs, shops, and takeaways, perfect for those who don’t fancy cooking whilst on holiday. Westward Ho!, a fifteen-minute walk in the opposite direction has one of the regions’ most spectacular beaches, an amazing two mile wide stretch of sand, popular with both families and surfers alike. Behind the beach, Northam Burrows Country Park is a wildlife rich area of salt marshes and sand dunes which offers an attractive place for quiet walks and picnics. There is plenty more to see and do within easy reach of the property including the attractive harbour town of Bideford, the beautifully maintained historic village of Clovelly, and the family friendly Milky Way Adventure Park.

Approached via 2 external steps, once inside you will enter the attractive lounge with its comfortable seating, TV/DVD, and hi-fi. The well sized kitchen/diner with distant sea views, has a French oak table from which a brick archway leads to the well equipped kitchen area with its oven and hob, microwave, fridge, dishwasher and washing machine. Beyond the kitchen, a rear porch conveniently houses the tumble dryer and freezer. The property’s two restful bedrooms: a spacious double and a twin room, both have far reaching views over the fields to the sea, whilst the bathroom offers the best of both worlds, with a shower over bath and WC.

Outside, there is a small courtyard terrace area with patio furniture, perfect for enjoying the views to the sea, but guests should be aware that children must be supervised at all times. There is roadside parking available close to the property.

Very nice property in good quiet location. Parking a few metres away. Lovely sea views.

The cottage was wonderful, with stunning views of the sea from each room. Perfect for a family holiday. The owner was extremely helpful and couldn't have done more for us. It was a 5 minute walk to Northam shops and a lovely 15 minute walk to Westward Ho!

If you like to see a golf course, horses and a sea view when you wake up this is the best cottage possible. Overlooking a paddock, Royal North Devon Golf course, the sea and the island of Lundy it will leave great memories.

Lovely clean well equipped cottage in a great location. Rain most days we were there, but still able to enjoy holiday and cottage, The dog loved beach at Northam which was within walking distance, as also Westward Ho. Also able. to walk to Appledore. Parking was not at property, but this wasn't a problem, as could park round corner or free car parkRead more in the village. The only downside is outside space was a bit restricted for the dog. Would stay again though. Hide

Reviewed by Andrew, 11th May 2019

The cottage is in a very nice location very near to the beach and shopping facilities, the only downfall is the parking of vehicles as you have to park further down the road which sometimes is difficult due to other residents living there but on a scale of ten would give it a ten
