This self-contained cottage sits adjacent to the owners’ period home, and small campsite – a stroll from the village of Westleigh with its popular village inn and views across open countryside.

This renovated cottage with views of the coast sits to the side of the impressive period house where the hustle and bustle of everyday life can be experienced. You’re likely to see the farm chickens and dogs, and meet the families staying on the camp site as there are 6-7 delightful camping pitches. Inside, the cottage has many characterful features yet has been decorated in a contemporary style. A 3-mile drive takes you to the picturesque village of Instow with its estuary beach and sand dunes, a variety of local pubs, and a superb deli. Enjoy a stroll or cycle on the Tarka Trail or a day on Westward Ho! beach (5.5 miles) building sandcastles. Try surfing, fishing, golf or even horse riding locally. Other nearby attractions include The Milky Way Adventure Park, The Big Sheep, or Tapley Park and RHS Rosemoor Gardens all within 12.5 miles.

On entering this superb property you find yourself in a small porch before stepping into the kitchen diner – the spacious room is well furnished and equipped with an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge and washing machine. A table and chairs make breakfast, lunch, or dinner a breeze and offers a great spot to plan your next day’s adventures. Further on is a door and step down to a comfortable lounge with a corner sofa, wood burner and smart TV. Back to the kitchen/dining area, the staircase rises to the first floor and a large double bedroom with double-aspect windows allow the natural light to flood in. A small en-suite shower is in one corner of the room and there is a separate WC off the landing.

Outside, there is an enclosed rear yard which is within earshot of the shower block but not overlooked and has garden furniture and a BBQ.

There is off-road parking for one car.

The cottage is really nice and in a lovely country location. It is quite a way down narrow country lanes, but follow the directions the owners give you and you won't get lost. Be aware if you have a small dog they may be able to slip under the gate. I went in a really hot week, and the cottage was lovely and cool, but the fridge didn't work.

This cottage is really well decorated and perfect for a couple with a dog. Nice remote location and super quiet at night but not ideal for anyone who wants to walk to the sea, pub, or shops.
