Exceptional Service

Our award-winning Guest Services team will not only help you find your dream holiday but will support you through every step of your stay.

Step inside the light and airy entrance hall and into the grand dining room where you will be greeted by a cosy wood-burning stove and a large dining table that is made for sociable meals and special occasions. The room is adorned with elegant antiques and quirky features including a secret door disguised as a bookcase which provides access to Honey Buzzard Farmhouse, which can be unlocked if you wish to book the properties together.

Meanwhile, the beautifully refurbished living room comprises three sumptuous sofas and an armchair. Relax here with a crisp glass of champagne in hand or gather for a movie marathon on the Smart TV with the wood-burning stove on hand for those chillier nights.

Venture to the end of the entrance hall and up a small flight of stairs where you will find a WC and a comfortable snug with two more sofas and a large Smart TV.

Next door is the country-style kitchen with all the essentials including a Range cooker, an induction hob, a coffee machine, a dishwasher, an American fridge/freezer and a microwave. There is also a large farmhouse-style kitchen table and bench where you can gather for delicious breakfasts or to plan your next adventure.
Adjacent to the kitchen is a private games room with table tennis, table football and access to the sun terrace.

Venture upstairs to find five beautiful bedrooms on the first floor, each designed with calming colour tones and soft linen sheets. There are two king-size bedrooms with an en-suite shower room each, two twin bedrooms (one of which can be formed into a super-king-size bed if required) and a single bedroom. You will also have access to a family bathroom with a shower and a rolltop bath.

Outside, there is a private terrace with a BBQ, garden furniture, sun loungers and a luxurious hot tub which provides front row seats to admire the idyllic countryside vistas.

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 along with 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 combined a 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.

Location of 'Kittiwake House


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.
