Barnstaple Cottage Rental Photos and Description
Sleeps 2, 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom
2 miles from Parracombe, and 2½ miles from the little pebble beach at dramatic Heddon's Mouth, deep in a lush tranquil wooded valley, detached cottage which started life as grain and animal barns to the main 17th cent. farmhouse. Nestled in the shelter of mature trees and ancient hedgerows - full of wild flowers, birds and butterflies at the right time of year - and has lovely views to Trentishoe Down. There are 40 acres of pasture, streams, wild wood and moorland which you are welcome to explore. This is terrific walking country, far away from the hustle of modern urban life, and an ideal spot to enjoy its calm. Timeless green lane and woodland footpath (walking boots needed) to Hunters Inn, about 1½ miles. It has use of a laundry room with washing machine and tumble drier and games barn (table tennis) opposite. Spring water.
The Bothy: a private, single-storey cottage with French windows overlooking its little wild garden with lovely views beyond. Approached by 80 yards of sloping path, there are 4 steps up to a glazed door to a large open-plan room with high exposed beams, comfy sofa, TV/DVD, dining table/chairs, woodburner, imposing four-poster bed (5’), floorboards/rug and wall-hung tapestries; 2 steps up to little kitchen with combi-microwave and separate induction hob, through to shower-room (suite). No children, except pre-crawling babies. A very romantic cottage.
