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. 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.

The accommodation was ideal for us as family - clean, comfortable, spacious and suitably equipment - bearing in mind we are coming out of 18 months of covid and bearing in mind it is a listed building due to its age and it has a thatch roof .

We had a lovely week. The cottage was unlike anything we had stayed in before because of its age and it’s rural location. The cottage was very well equipped and despite some COVID arrangements was very comfortable. The gardens were amazing and the amount of space inside incredible. In our opinion Some of the decor needs to be updated or refreshed as in some rooms it was a little tatty and marked, the furniture was old and looked like a cobbled together from different houses. On arrival the large living room and dining room smelled fusty and damp. There were lots of flies and the heating was not very efficient. A new pair of scissors and a garlic press would be good in the kitchen. The building is old and so may be the smell is due to that. Please note we loved our stay and would book again if the decor was refreshed and heating fixed.

We loved the cottage and the beautiful gardens. It was spacious, well equipped and worked really well for us as a family. We liked the village and the peace and quiet but it was still central to go places. I would recommend the cottage.
