English Country Cottages

An inspiring collection of properties chosen for their character, luxury and heritage, all graded 4 star and above.


An enchanting listed cottage with inglenook and original features in a peaceful setting. Visit Knightshayes, the beach at Saunton Sands or cycle the Tarka Trail.

Westgate Cottage nestles at the end of a row of cottages in the rural mid-Devon village of Lapford. An excellent location, between Dartmoor and Exmoor, for exploring Devon’s beautiful countryside, beaches and National Trust properties. Westgate Cottage is also a peaceful, tranquil base in which to comfortably relax. This welcoming cottage has an abundance of character features including an inglenook fireplace and original beams. The pretty hedge-lined garden with original cobble-stoned pathway, picnic bench and parasol makes an ideal spot to sit and relax on a warm summer’s day. There’s a pub just 300 yards away in the centre of Lapford village which serves excellent food. Nearby Chulmleigh offers bespoke shops and a bistro along the old High Street, and the pub at Kings Nympton serves popular local produce. Locally, the town of Crediton offers a wide range of shops and amenities. Top recommendations to visit include Saunton Sands’ golden stretches of beach, which are a pleasant drive away and have a café, shop and toilet facilities right next to the beach. For day trips, visit the gothic manor Knightshayes (National Trust). Castle Drogo on the edge of Dartmoor, is a great place to explore and suitable for a wet weather day, as is the Waie to Play children’s large soft play centre in Zeal Monochorum, which also has an outdoor children’s play area, fishing lake and attached pub and café for a convenient lunch. Lapford has a children’s playground and adjacent outdoor space to run around in. Annual village events include the summer Revel festival and popular Lapstock music festival - these fun, vibrant occasions take place in the heart of the village. There are village walks from the door of Westgate Cottage, taking in far-reaching views towards Dartmoor. Small supermarket 1 mile, pub 300 yards.

    Excellent place to stay for a short break or a longer stay in the beautiful Devon countryside - a well appointed cottage with everything you need plus the charm of an old English cottage to boot. Very relaxing.

    The stairs being as they are could be rather tricky for persons not sure of their footing etc. My wife (86 years) would not come down the stairs at night as she felt that the treads are too narrow for her. I am younger than her but used them in a sideways manner.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; The stairs at Westgate Cottage are wide, although they do have slightly narrower tread, and are fully carpeted. Some customers may find this slightly different from those they are used to. The staircase is split into two short sets of stairs leading to the first floor, one of five stairs and one of three stairs, separated by a carpeted square landing. There is a secure wooden hand rail. As regards using the stairs at night, there are two light switches for the landing lighting, one immediately outside the bedrooms, and another at the foot of the stairs. For convenience we installed an en-suite WC to the master bedroom so most customers would not have a need to go downstairs in the night. The stairs raised no safety concerns during annual inspections.

    All good.just could do with a shower /bath or just a shower.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you for your positive feedback. We do have a bath and shower attachment in the main bathroom. This is easier for families rather than just having a shower cubicle with no bath. Also, in recent years we created an new ensuite WC to the master bedroom to expand the bathroom facilities at Westgate Cottage. We hope this offers clarity for the benefit of future guests.
