This delightful cottage has been lovingly refurbished and retains many original features. The village setting provides a great taste of rural life, yet is ideally located to explore Devon.

Nestled in a quaint and pretty Devon village, this charming cottage is full of character and retains many original features. Immersed in a network of public footpaths, this is an ideal rustic retreat for you and your four-pawed friends to escape the stresses and strains of everyday life. The magnificent North Devon landscape sits on your doorstep where you can adventure through ancient woodlands, dramatic valleys and rolling hills, ensuring no stick is left unfetched.

This delightful cottage has been lovingly refurbished to provide a warm and cosy atmosphere where you and your canine companion will instantly feel right at home. Relax in the lounge/diner in front of the roaring wood burner to warm those noses and toes after a day roaming the countryside. Cottage-style stairs lead you up to the two light and bright bedrooms providing a tranquil haven to rest peacefully, ready for the next day ahead. Leading out to the sunny courtyard is a rear porch, perfect for drying your soggy doggies and removing muddy boots.

Located in the heart of Bishops Nympton, a rural village in North Devon, there is plenty to see and do in and around the surrounding area. The historic market town of South Molton (4 miles) provides the chance for you to try locally reared and home-grown produce at its weekly farmers’ market. Or visit the walker’s paradise that is the spectacular Exmoor National Park (10 miles) where you and your furry chum can ramble through vast and diverse acres of coastline, forest, valleys and moorland. The beautiful coastal village of Lynmouth (24 miles) provides some simply stunning walks along the River Lyn and is definitely worth a day trip.

A very pleasant and comfortable cottage, well equipped and spotlessly clean. The villagers are friendly and it has a shop for basics within walking distance.

Brilliant accommodation in all ways. Only myself and a dog used cottage but it would be ideal for upto a family of 4. Small village with one 'sells all' store and South Molton with lots to offer only 12/15 drive away; including buses to many towns and Exeter.

We have stayed in other cottages in this area over the past few years and this has been by far the best we have had. Extremely clean,beautifully renovated,well equipped and very comfortable beds. What else do you need! Had lovely days out at Appledore,Ilfracombe,Bideford,Clovelly and Arlington Court. South Molton is perfect for shopping for the essRead moreentials. Can't recommend highly enough. Hide

This quaint cottage, in a quiet village, has been restored to a high standard. The kitchen and utility barn fulfilled all our requirements. Be sure to check out the community shop and bar! Take care as you come out of the front door on to the road. Kids will love the park round the corner.

A comfortable and clean cottage which was in a lovely location. We walked from the cottage around the public footpaths and also ventured into Exmoor which was only a short drive away. Safe and practical downstairs for a young child.

The cottage is beautiful, as is the village of Bishop's Nympton. We found the kitchen to be really well equipped. We were on holiday with our 1 year old and found the cottage to be very accommodating for her too. Only down side is that it is a small property and my 6'4 husband hit his head on the door frame and stairs numerous times.

The cottage is a bit smaller than it appears on the photos but is a beautiful building. Excellent quality decoration and furnishings, everything looks new and in good condition.
