Description

Petrockstowe village is the home to this traditional, detached house, with fields leading to the Tarka Trail, beaches at Woolacombe and Sandymouth easily accessible.

With parts dating from the 1350s this beautifully restored, detached holiday house can be found on the edge of the North Devon village of Petrockstowe. The charming exterior is matched by the well appointed, comfortable interior. Every effort has been made to retain the charm of a house of this age but also with modern conveniences required by discerning guests. There is a large landscaped garden with a pond and is ideal to either find a quiet corner or have a run around. There is also 25 acres of fields to use that lead down to the Tarka Trail which is great for cycling or walking. In the village there is a charming pub and playground, both within walking distance of the house. The house is ideally suited to explore the charming North Devon coast and countryside, there are stunning beaches at Woolacombe and Sandymouth. Enjoy a day out at Hartland and visit the lighthouse, Hartland Quay and the historic fishing village at Clovelly. If gardens are of interest the R.H.S Gardens at Rosemoor are a delight and there are numerous National Trust properties in the surrounding area to enjoy. The towns of Great Torrington and Bideford lie close by with most amenities, as is Bideford’s quay where visitors can book a trip to Lundy Island. Slightly further afield is the Dartmoor National Park. Beach lovers will delight in the wide sandy beaches, the nearest being the Blue Flag beach at Westward Ho! The Milky Way and The Big Sheep will fascinate the younger ones. There are several local pubs nearby, with the nearest in the village serving real ale and home cooked food. Shop 2 miles, pub 500 yards.

    We had some problems when staying here in September. The cottage was very large and upon first look we thought it would be fabulous. Unfortunately when it came to unpacking our clothes we couldn’t put them anywhere because the wardrobes and drawers were unbelievably musty. The smell was horrible. It turned quite cold st the beginning of our stay so we tried to find logs for the log burner which we were informed would be provided. Finally after numerous attempts to contact the owner (no mobile signal and the WiFi was totally hopeless) we were told we couldn’t use the log burner - some strange insurance situation we couldn’t understand. There was a power cut and we lost most lights and heating and eventually got someone to reset things for us. Unfortunately there were no instructions left in the house to operate any device. The outside building housing the freezer and washing machine was totally filthy. There was also nowhere in the kitchen to store our food as all the cupboards were full. The garden is glorious and the cottage is lovely apart from the items mentioned. I don’t think they should advertise a log burner nor that the property has WiFi as it’s unusable. The bedroom cupboards need throwing away or airing for a few months. We spent most days out and about and found the area convenient for our travels.
