Originally owned by the Early of Devon, this quirky property takes glamping to a new level with bags of history. Offering the perfect cosy home from home for the whole family.
Within the centre of the vibrant village of Braunton, this lovely four-bedroom cob cottage is perfect for friends and families, including four-legged members, seeking a comfortable base from which to explore the wonderful North Devon countryside and coastline. Feast on fish and chips from the local takeaway or enjoy an early evening drink in one of the dog-friendly pubs and cocktail bars. Take the lead for a walk along the Tarka Trail or romp along the 5 miles of sandy beach at dog-friendly Crow Point (3.5 miles).
One of the earliest dwellings in the village, your cosy cottage retains many original features creating an inviting space with plenty of character. Filled with natural light from the semi-glazed roof, rustle up delicious dinners in the well-equipped kitchen/diner and enjoy a relaxed family meal sat around the rustic dining table. Unwind after a day of adventures in the cosy lounge; snuggle up on one of the plump sofas while your hound warms their paws in front of the converted wood burner. There’s a selection of board games and puzzles available and even a dog-toy swap box so your four-legged friend doesn’t feel left out. Heading upstairs, you will find three bedrooms - a master double, and two singles, one with an additional pull-out bed.
The fourth bedroom is a king-size room located in the external annex, it is a very funky space with original artwork adorning the walls and having a very comfortable king size bed, wi-fi and top quality bedding, the barn is very rustic, only accessible by steep steps and has no bathroom facilities - so it’s best suited to those more intrepid individuals with a penchant for glamping.
Venturing outside, step onto the pretty decked area for a BBQ or evening sat chatting around the firepit. Beyond this, there is a large lawn and orchard where your pup can stretch their legs.
The popular North Devon town of Braunton has a choice of independent stores and boutiques, dog-friendly cafes and well-regarded restaurants. Play ball along the sand dunes at Braunton Burrows (2.5 miles) or along the expanse of beach at dog-friendly Saunton Sands (2.5 miles). Splash in the surf at Woolacombe Beach (7.5 miles) or set sail in search of seals and dolphins from Ilfracombe harbour (8.5 miles) with your canine companion at your side.
Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.
