A spectacular Atlantic coastal location on the stunning Hartland peninsula in North Devon, with direct access to breath-taking unspoilt views, coastal walks and secluded beaches. This sweet retreat is part of our exclusive collection with Joules and has been beautifully styled with touches of their signature style throughout. Hand-picked additions such as bedding and crockery add to the already enticing interior.

This romantic hideaway will win hearts and puppy love with its contemporary country style and colourful inspiring interiors. Sleeping two, plus two stick-chasers, the former granary is the perfect place to curb newspaper shredders and biscuit burglars with coastal fun, awe-inspiring sunsets and paw-stretching walks right from the doorstep. There’s also the convenience of parking on-site.

Stone paving and steps lead to the entrance of this chic shack which sits alongside the owner’s walled courtyard garden. Settle into this cosy bolthole where solid walls, grain store windows, a cleverly designed kitchenette, and contemporary furnishings create the perfect nesting space for lazy brunches and seaside siestas. The stylish bathroom on the ground floor features a hand-held shower over a roll-top bath, and WC. Enjoy sea views from the comfort of the sofa and curl up with four-legged friends by the wood burner for snug evenings catching up on favourite films in the TV and DVD player lounge, just remember those pup treats for hushed cinema hour. A pretty spiral staircase leads up to the mezzanine bedroom with a statement driftwood bed, tucked under sloping eaves. For sunrise views and al fresco sunsets, there’s an outdoor seating area outside the cottage.

There’s a secluded cove within walking distance, and the South West Coast Path lures hounds and hikers with its clifftop trails, sandy coves, and craggy outcrops. Hartland Abbey (3 miles) has pup-friendly gardens with winding paths and woodland wildlife, while Hartland village (3 miles) has pubs, eateries and independent shops with artisan crafts; discover the shipwreck museum at the quay which shares stories of smugglers past. Further afield, Westward Ho! (16 miles), and Bude (18.5 miles) offer traditional seaside fun and sandy shores for competitive castle builders; keep an eye out for four-legged saboteurs who may crash through your master design.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Lovely little bolt hole, unique, isolated and quiet even though its on a working farm. Family very welcoming and on site if you need anything. Only a five minute walk to stunning scenery over the cliffs and sea. If you want sea views from inside the property this is not the one for you. Will definitely go back.
