The perfect hideaway for two, this romantic former art studio boasts bright and light accommodation in an enclosed plot in the owner’s garden.

This pretty property, just a mile’s downhill walk from the long sandy beach at Westward Ho!, is ideal for a tranquil retreat for you and your beau – not forgetting up to two furry friends, of course! Beautifully converted with a fresh and bright double bedroom, you’ll be able to get a peaceful night’s sleep that will prepare you for the excitement of the day ahead. Pop out along the South West Coast Path with the hounds to Northam Burrows Country Park, just behind the beach, and take in those beautiful views along the 2-mile stretch of sand.

The pretty former studio, built in a natural stone with red and orange tones, harnesses natural light from its south-facing position and has an airy feel. The high ceilings and windows open out the space, making the lounge/kitchen area a relaxing place to chill out after a long day, your canines snoozing away by your feet. You’ll find everything you need to cook a romantic breakfast in the contemporary kitchen but watch out for cheeky canines hunting for crumbs! Outside, the enclosed cobbled patio is a wonderful spot for enjoying an al fresco evening drink while the pups stretch their legs.

Westward Ho! is a bustling traditional seaside town, so you’ll find plenty to do there, including amusement arcades, surfing and go-karting. Plus, dogs are welcome on parts of the beach all year. Fishing village Appledore is only 3 miles away and has plenty of shops and cafes, and you can take the ferry across to Instow for a dog-friendly pub lunch while looking out across the water. Take a stroll around the gardens at Tapeley Park (4 miles), which has one of the oldest permaculture gardens in the UK, or visit the pretty Docton Mill (16 miles) that boasts an award-winning tea room.

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

Lovely cottage, great shower! Very, warm, clean and private. The owners are very friendly, nothing was too much trouble. We had a lovely restful Xmas. The beaches are lovely and clean, the pubs and shops are within walking distance, but down a steep cliff roads and paths. So only suitable for fit people and a very short drive for the not so fit. DoRead moregs were very welcome and they really enjoyed it too. Thank you so much. Hide

Its a lovely cottage and a good location. The garden is lovely but you cant keep and eye on the dogs when they go out. I feel it would have been perfect if the area in front of the cottage was a little more enclosed.

Good location for all amenities and a very well equipped and comfortable place to stay. Hosts were helpful and the property is homely without being cluttered. We very much enjoyed our stay and highly recommend.

A pleasant little cottage with all mod cons (- v nice shower!) a short walk from the town and the beach. - a longer walk if you have a dog to the north end of the beach though . You may want to drive there . Parking only a few pounds for all day. Mr and Mrs Paterson were very friendly and left a nice bottle of wine on the table as a welcome presentRead more . Although situated on a main road, The Cwtch is far from it, and no road noise could be heard . Hide

Nice quiet location, close to the beach (driving only). Very limited/restricted parking, not suitable for anyone with a large vehicle. Nice for a quiet getaway. Owners of property were very friendly
