For those who are wanting to relax, the surrounding area is tranquil and the scenery is breath-taking. The Tarka Trail (traffic free) can be seen from the property and is a short walk to Bideford with its range of quayside shops, pubs, restaurants and historic pannier market. Sandy beaches are close by; a short drive takes you to Westward Ho! With 2 miles of golden sands, whilst beautiful Instow and Appledore are less than 10 minutes away. Why not visit RHS Rosemoor Gardens, Dartington Crystal, or enjoy some of the finest National Trust cliff-top walks. Leisure facilities: hot tub (bath robes are provided).

Me and my partner had a fantastic week away! The cottage was very cosy and ideal for a short break away. Very well decorated, and includes everything you will need. The hot tub is idyllic at night, with a view of the towns lights in the distance below. Lots to do in the area if your like walking and hitting the beaches (even in February, yes it wasRead more pretty chilly!). Though I'd imagine 10x better in the summer!!! I would highly recommend.

A truly welcome break, the welcome gifts provided (bubbly for us and treats for Jack our dog). The hot tub was a real winner for us, early mornings and evenings the local owls are around and it was just so peaceful, yet so close to the town. Easy access from link roads, beaches within a short drive. Highly recommended little hideaway. Thank you agaRead morein Hide
