Enjoy your own little piece of Georgian charm in this charming property, perfectly placed on the outskirts of Barnstaple with North Devon’s beaches easily accessible.

This wing of a charming Georgian manor lies just outside the town of Barnstaple. With large windows, typical of its age, the holiday cottage has lovely features such as a wood-panelled living room and original staircase. Within walking distance is a popular route to the top of Codden Hill, from the summit of which, on a clear day, Bodmin Moor, Exmoor, Dartmoor and the sea can be seen. Enjoy North Devon’s stunning beaches at Saunton, Croyde and nearby Instow. Further afield is Dartmoor and Exmoor National Park. Visit Hartland with its lighthouse and the fishing village of Clovelly. For children, try Exmoor Zoo, The Big Sheep and Milky Way amusement parks. Trips to Lundy Island can be taken from Bideford and Ilfracombe. Shop 500 yards, pubs 100 yards.

    Comfortable, warm and bright outlook over beautiful surrounding countryside. Very good meals and warm welcome at the Chichester Arms pub only 5 minute walk away. Easy access for the local bus service to Barnstaple.

    An interesting cottage with period features. The bedrooms were a good size, tastefully decorated and the beds were comfortable. We loved the look of the kitchen, and it was refreshing to find a well equipped kitchen with good quality crockery and equipment; it was fun to cook on the Aga, however this failed to provide really hot water so we had to boil a kettle to wash up. The washing machine was a welcome facility. However the bathroom and downstairs loo really let the property down and need to be improved. The location was lovely with views over the nearby fields, but the town itself lacks amenities ie no bakery, no garage or shop and there is very sketchy mobile phone coverage. There was one pub, the Chichester Arms which did very nice food, but where service was extremely slow.
