Why we love this

  • Relax in the hot tub while admiring the idyllic countryside views
  • Access to on-site facilities including an indoor heated pool and a children’s play area
  • Perfect base to explore Exmoor National Park, Ilfracombe and North Devon’s stunning beaches

The house is adorned with several period-style features including wooden beams, exposed stone walls and a listed staircase that is believed to date back to the 16th century.

Step inside the large farmhouse kitchen where you will find everything you should need to self-cater with ease including a Range cooker, a coffee machine, a microwave, a dishwasher and a fridge and freezer. Whether planning your next adventure or having a bite to eat, the huge marble-topped island creates a sociable space for all six guests.

Meanwhile, a secret door provides access to Kittiwake House and can be unlocked if you wish to book the properties together.

The L-shaped living/dining room is a particularly cosy space thanks to the crackling wood-burning stove and two sumptuous sofas. Relax here after a day in the countryside with your favourite programme on the Smart TV or a good book in hand. Venture around the corner to the dining room which provides a more formal setting for family meals or celebrations.

There are three delightfully decorated bedrooms, each with their own character and charm. On the ground floor, there is a bedroom with a super-king bed (which can be formed into twin beds if required) and an en-suite shower room. On the first floor, there are two further bedrooms, one of which features a four poster super-king-sized bed and an en-suite shower room and one with twin beds.

The first floor is complete with a family bathroom.

Outside, you will have access to a private terrace with far-reaching countryside views. Enjoy a delicious BBQ, followed by a sunset dip in the luxurious hot tub.

You will have access to a host of on-site leisure facilities that are shared by guests of all cottages:

The grounds

There are 16 acres of stunning grounds to explore and dog walking fields. Amble through the meadows and stop off at the kitchen garden and greenhouse to choose a little something to go with your delicious alfresco lunch.

The grounds also provide a combined 5-aside football pitch, a badminton and grass tennis court, croquet, boules, cricket and a putt golf course.

Swimming pool and games room

Take a dip in the indoor heated swimming pool or head to the games room where you will find an abundance of toys and games, plus a soft play area for little ones aged 5 years old and under. For outdoor fun, there is an adventure playground with swings, slides and a climbing frame.

On-site activities

Discover The Lookout for some relaxation, practice yoga on the mats provided and enjoy the estate’s stunning viewpoint. Or you can enjoy a fun aqua aerobics session in the heated swimming pool.

Farm animals

There are over 50 animals on-site to visit including chickens, alpacas, goats, sheep and piglets.

The owners will greet you on arrival and show you into the property.

The neighbourhood

The cottage is located in the picturesque Devon countryside, posing many pretty walking routes close by for you and your four-legged friends to explore. The Exmoor National Park is particularly stunning with its dramatic coastline, stretching from Minehead in the east to Combe Martin in the west.

There are many beautiful beaches to visit in North Devon, with the nearest being Combe Martin Beach, just 2 miles away. Barricane Beach, Woolacombe and Saunton Sands are also great for days spent strolling through the sand, going for a dip in the sea or relaxing in the sunshine.
