  • Idyllic thatched cottage in the heart of Devon with your own private hot tub
  • Ideal base to explore all of Devon with beaches just 20 minutes away
  • Private enclosed garden, patio area and adjacent wild flower meadow ideal for walking or exercising dogs
Property code: 49589

This detached thatched cottage dates to the 17th Century and sits within the grounds of the owners’ large Georgian home. The cottage has its own entrance, enclosed garden and private hot tub to enjoy.

Surrounded by rolling hills and lush green fields in the heart of Devon, this idyllic cottage is ideally located for an escape to the country. Discover a new leash of life as you wake to breathtaking views and let the dogs run and play in the adjoining wildflower meadow as you sip your morning coffee and watch on. Sleeping four, it’s perfect for families or small groups of friends looking to relax and reconnect.

Exposed bricks, stones and original beams add country charm and character throughout this property, with thoughtful details helping you feel right at home. On cold winter evenings, curl up in front of the wood burner for a fun film night in front of the Smart TV – there’s even underfloor heating if it gets really chilly. Plan the next day’s adventures in the warm and welcoming kitchen/diner before dipping into your own private hot tub on the enclosed patio. There are two light and airy super king-size bedrooms, which can be made into twins on request. You will find plenty of off-road parking available.

For walkies, you and your four-legged friends will be spoilt for choice, with the rugged scenery, rolling hills and woodland of Dartmoor (20 miles) and Exmoor (18.5 miles) waiting for you to explore. Torrington (5 miles) has a myriad of footpaths and cycle paths to wander too, linking directly to the famous 180-mile long Tarka Trail. And of course, no visit to North Devon is complete without a trip to the beach, so head 11 miles to Westward Ho! and enjoy its 2 miles of golden sands; dog access is restricted here in the summer, although Peppercombe (17.5 miles), Northam Burrows (13.5 miles) and Clovelly (23 miles) beaches allow dogs to get their paws wet and sandy year-round.

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

  • 2 super-king zip-and-link beds (which can be made in to twins on request)
  • 1 wet room with WC, 1 en-suite shower room with WC and 1 en-suite bathroom with hand held shower over bath with WC
  • Kitchen with electric range style oven and induction hob, microwave, fridge, freezer and dishwasher
  • Utility room with washer/dryer
  • Wood burner (logs included)
  • Electric and wood pellet ground source underfloor/central heating included
  • Ample off-road parking
  • Wi-Fi included 
  • Hot tub
  • 2 dogs welcome
  • Beach 11 miles and shops 3 miles
  • Smart TV/DVD in lounge
  • Please note, dogs are only permitted on the ground floor
  • The owners also have two B&B rooms on site in their sympathetically restored Georgian house.  The rooms are charmingly decorated with private bathrooms, smart TV and tea/coffee making facilities.  Additional guests can be accommodated in the B&B rooms for all or part of your stay -  should you wish to discuss this option let us know and we will put you in direct contact with the owners.
