This property is part of our Welcome Cottages collection

A carefully curated collection of properties that offer high quality, good value accommodation in great locations across the UK, Ireland, France and Italy


Relax by the open fire in winter, and enjoy the beach and many attractions in summer. This comfortable property lies in a prime position just a short walk from the pub.

With southfacing views over the Taw Valley, South View offers a great location from which to explore North Devon. With access via a private footpath, this terraced property is set in the village of Bishop’s Tawton, just outside Barnstaple, and offers comfortable, well thought out accommodation, ideal for a couple or small family. It has the added bonus of a large, detached front garden, with views over the River Taw and surrounding valley, and occasional glimpses of the Tarka branch line trains. The property lies in a prime position making local sights and attractions easily reached. Nearby Barnstaple has a good range of shops and amenities, as well as a bustling Pannier market, which can be reached easily on foot or by the nearby Tarka Trail cycle path should you prefer to leave the car at home. There is also a large leisure centre and Go Kart track in the town.

Some of the county’s finest beaches at Woolacombe and Saunton are within easy reach, as well as many other beaches and small coves for you to explore. The dramatic north Devon coast has many places to visit, including Hartland Point, Clovelly, Westward Ho!, Ilfracombe and the Victorian towns of Lynton and Lynmouth. The coastline and Exmoor National Park offer great walking for all abilities. There are National Trust properties at Arlington, Castle Drogo and Knightshayes, and the RHS gardens at Rosemoor are well worth a visit. For those with younger ones, a trip to the Big Sheep or the Milky Way adventure parks make for a great day out. Cycling, golf, tennis and horse riding are all available nearby.

    the cottage was in a splendid location for all amenities, however the beds were very hard and uncomfortable to the point where I had to lay a duvet under the sheet to lay on. also the parking was an issue. other than that we enjoyed our stay.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you for your comments. We are very sorry you found the mattress uncomfortable. The mattress in bedroom 1 is a medium rating. The single mattresses in bedrooms 2 and 3 are Silentnight Special Sleep and are rated as Firmer. We chose them for the wear and tear of a busy holiday home and have slept on them ourselves without any problems. It is difficult to cater to everyone’s preferences and on this occasion, we have obviously got it wrong and apologise for any discomfort you experienced. We will investigate alternatives for next season so that we can offer improved comfort. The parking can get busy at certain times, especially weekends. There are always spaces, although these might be slightly further along the road.
