A very pretty cottage peacefully set in the small village of Stoke Rivers - about 5 miles from Barnstaple. The oldest part of the house dates back over 200 years, and it has recently completed a total renovation (2012). Stoke Rivers is within easy reach of North Devon's award winning beaches, and is itself on the western edge of Exmoor. Lynton and Lynmouth, on the north coast, are about 20 minutes drive. The village is located well away from all major roads, and is accessed only by single track roads, with no passing traffic. An idyllic cottage in peaceful countryside.
