This superb holiday home sits in a peaceful village close to the North Devon and Cornwall coast; with its own enclosed garden, it’s a real home from home.

This warm and welcoming cottage sits in the centre of this traditional Devon village yet retains its own privacy with its own enclosed front and rear gardens. Only a short drive away is the small market town of Holsworthy offering country strolls, fishing or bike rides on the cycle route. Just 14 miles away is Bude which is perfect for surfers, walkers or those who fancy a swim. The active among you will love the Tamar Lakes which offer a variety of water sports as well as great walking routes and a lovely café. Other attractions close by include Tintagel, The Milky Way, Boscastle and Clovelly.

Stepping up into the bright and airy kitchen/diner, there is slate flooring and the kitchen is well-equipped with electric oven and induction hob, microwave, American-style fridge/freezer with ice/drinks dispenser, dishwasher, and washing machine. The dining area seats six comfortably and overlooks the patio. Step down into the large lounge with feature stone fireplace, painted beams and warming wood burner. A vibrant corner sofa beckons you to relax and watch the Smart TV. Kids will love the snug/playroom with chalk wall, Apple TV, books and games. Heading upstairs, there are three bedrooms: a spacious king-size with wooden floor, a twin room with stylish tree mural and a double with another abstract wall mural in muted tones. The large family bathroom completes the accommodation with a bath, separate double shower and WC.

Stepping outside, there are two areas for you to enjoy.

A well equipped cottage in a rural position. Great secure garden for the dogs. Friendly neighbours. Can get flies in the property from the farm behind and property could have done with being cleaner. Rugs and runners need cleaning or replacing.

Very noisy as diary right behind woken every morning at 5.30am. lights from the diary on all night. Not much equipment in the kitchen. Plenty of room as only three adults, nice enclosed garden for dog but grass needed cutting. Could be much better with a good clean & notes to put up fly net & more fly spray which we had top buy.

This house is fabulous, both grown ups and children are catered for. A lovely quiet base but only 1.5 hours from the major seaside resorts and the two local villages Bradworthy and. hold worthy have all grocery needs and they Bradworthy Inn serves brilliant food.
