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 pleasant cottage, nicely appointed, all you need for a relaxing break. Close to the beach (20mins walk). Great place for walking the dog. Parking is on the lane outside of the property and the lane is narrow (put your wing mirrors in!). Lovely views across open fields to the sea from the property. I would recommend this property.

The cottage is in a good location with lovely sea views out of most of the windows. It is well equipped for a comfortable stay although the double bed is a little uncomfortable and the second bedroom needs a makeover.

Reviewed by Duncan, 17th June 2017

The cottage is placed well to access the local beaches and towns of Bideford, Appledore, and Westward Ho. Northam burrows is a great place to walk the dog, and can be walked from the cottage, approximately 1 mile. The cottage is classed as having an enclosed garden, this effectively is a terrace and should be described as such. I could not let my dRead moreog loose in this area as the drop to the road is about 12 feet. she is a tall dog, and there is a sign warning children should be supervised. Hide

Lovely comfortable cottage, felt very homely and had everything we needed and more. Great storage space for clothes. Really good location for the beach and Westward Ho! Had lovely walks there most days. Would definitely recommend and would return. Great for dogs too.

Great peaceful location, cottage was spotless on arrival and we settled in straight away. Loads to do. Parking was limited but we never had a problem.

Wonderful cottage with stunning views to the sea. The cottage is extremely good value for money with added extras that you would not normally find in a property of this size e.g. dishwasher and tumble dryer - to name just two. Outside space is limited but who needs that when you have the beach and other walks within easy reach. Shops are local. TheRead more cottage is exceptionally clean with a very warm welcome on arrival. Hide
