Comfortable single-storey property in a quiet rural location in the Devonshire countryside, only a thirty-minute drive from both the Devon and Cornwall coasts.

This property is situated in an attractive rural location in mid-Devon, just two miles from the local village centre, where guests will find a convenient village shop and a friendly pub, the 400-year-old Devil’s Stone Inn. There is plenty in the local area to suit all tastes, including the wilds of Dartmoor National Park, which is located just 16 miles south of the property. The beautiful gardens at RHS Rosemoor are just a short drive away, whilst the stunning sandy beaches of Bude and Westward Ho! are both to be found within a thirty-minute drive.

This spacious but cosy barn conversion property offers single-storey accommodation sleeping four, and is accessed via a concrete ramp, leading to the front door, which opens directly into the open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner. The lounge area is a relaxing space, with two reclining sofas, and a TV/DVD. Behind this area, the spacious kitchen/diner has a dining table and is equipped with an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, and washing machine. The property’s two bedrooms are both restful, light, and airy rooms, the first of which, a king-size room, benefits from an en-suite shower and WC. The second room is a delightful twin room, which has its own TV, making it great for children who may enjoy the treat of watching TV from their beds first thing in the morning. The property’s main shower room is a fully-tiled wet room, with a large rainfall shower and WC.

Outside, the property enjoys an enclosed garden, which has a pleasant patioed seating area with a BBQ. There is also a two-acre paddock next to the property, which can be used by guests to exercise their dogs. Ample parking is available.

Perfect little cottage, nicely tucked away from the hustle and bustle of every day life. We really enjoyed the peace & quiet, fields as far as the eye can see, but lots of great places to explore. We loved it and so did the dogs. Facilities at the property were excellent.

Great field next door we could use for a quick spin with the 4 Greyhounds! Hide

For total peace and quiet this was perfect. Our three dogs were welcomed and they loved the enclosed garden along with the large field outside the gate which they could have a good old run around. Full marks absolutely perfect in all ways.

The cottage was homely and comfortable, we were welcomed with lovely homemade scones, jam and cream and a very nice welcome note. I could happily live permanently in the cottage, it has everything you need and is done to a high standard. The garden is plenty big enough for dogs and relaxing and the added field opposite was perfect. This is probablyRead more the best holiday home we have ever hired. Only downside is need to travel loads for civilisation as there is nothing close by. Hide

Great holiday cottage - accessible for elderly parents (amazing shower room!) as well as suitable for 4-month old puppy who enjoyed the garden and his romps in the adjoining meadow. A little isolated, but easy day trips to coastal resorts (we loved Bude & Ilfracombe) as well as RHS gardens.
