Virginia Cottage is a pretty, listed, thatched cottage set in the heart of the village of Lapford. With its origins dating from the 16th-century, the cottage boasts many of the features you would expect from a cottage of this age including beams and an inglenook fireplace. The well-appointed and presented accommodation makes the cottage an ideal holiday base from which to explore all the delights Devon has to offer. The cathedral city of Exeter on the River Exe is 15 miles. Head towards Barnstaple and you have access to some of the best beaches in the country including Woolacombe and Saunton.
