Detached, spacious cottage with private gardens and parking, fully equipped kitchen, fast wifi, bbq, fields to walk in and a hot tub to enjoy under a sky full of stars. Underfloor heating and wood burner to keep you cozy. Two bathrooms including a whirlpool bath. Two bedrooms: master bedroom with 6ft superking & ensuite, second bedroom with two singles or one superking. Dogs welcome, 2nd dog £5 per night.

The space
An enhanced cleaning regime is in place (see Airbnb's enhanced cleaning protocol) and a lockbox entry system is now also installed.
The cottage has its own grounds which include three terraces, a patio area and private parking for two cars. On warm days, take advantage of the barbeque and outdoor seating. On cooler days, enjoy the fully-equipped kitchen and large dining table. For a night out, wander up the hill to the dog-friendly village pub and enjoy a bite to eat and some of the best ales the Southwest has to offer.

Any time of the year, there's the warm, welcoming entertainment lounge with wood and eco-friendly firelighters provided for the wood burner. Enjoy cozy nights in with our superfast wifi and let your worries melt away in your private therapeutic hot tub or whirlpool bathtub.

At the cottage, our bird feeders and binoculars will help you get acquainted with the local wildlife. Guests are also welcome to explore the 10 acres of private grounds, which include wooded areas, orchards and open grassland. Nearby, you can enjoy walking or cycling one of the many trails, including the famous Tarka trail and 350 acres of nature reserve at Meeth Quarry. For a more lively day out, make the short drive to Great Torrington, a quirky local town and home to the last battle of the English Civil War.

Less than an hour's drive away are the surfing beaches of Westward Ho!, Northam Burrows, Bude, Widemouth Bay, and spectacular coastal scenery at Hartland Quay. Dartmoor is a twenty minute drive to the south with its dramatic nature walks and Bronze Age stone circles. This is a wonderful base to explore Devon's glorious countryside and beaches. All you need to bring is your taste for adventure.

Finally, and most importantly, your four-legged friends will love it here. First doggy stays for free, additional doggy for £5 per night.

Hi, I'm Gill and I've been living here for more than twenty years, had various occupations from teaching to vegetable picking to growing cut flowers, and just love this area. 5 things I can't live without- 1) meditating every day 2) Tea 3) An energising shower each day 4) My family and pets 5) Chocolate. What is my style of hosting? I live just up the hill from the cottage and the retreat and so am available if needed, but I like to give people space because that's what I would like as a guest. My life motto? Even a journey of a thousand miles begins with one step!

During your stay

I am available to contact by phone, text or email and am happy to answer any questions you may have. We live further up the lane and so we are easily available to help, although we believe it is important to give guests their privacy- the cottage is YOUR home during your stay. We have lived here for over twenty years and know a good deal about the area so are happy to answer any questions you may have about places to visit, shops, restaurants etc. There is also a local information pack in the cottage.
