About 4 miles from Clovelly and from dramatic Hartland Quay, a cottage converted from a cow shed in the grounds of a former farmhouse (now a smallholding). Meadows surround it and you can walk from the garden gate across a field to the stunning Coast Path winding down into Clovelly (for the fit with stout boots). In front, own patio (table/chairs) and you are welcome to use a large, grassed hedge-enclosed garden around the cottage.
Inside, the cottage is glossy, comfortable, roomy and a romantic place to chill out and forget the rush of modern life. Living/dining/kitchen (dishwasher, microwave, fridge-freezer, electric cooker) with woodburner and TV/DVD; loo (washer-drier). Stairs up to double bedroom (5' bed) with smart en suite shower-room (suite). Spring water. No children, except pre-crawling babies. Great star-gazing country.

CLOVELLY Bideford 8 miles. The picturesque fishing village of Clovelly occupies a secluded, cliffside position and attracts visitors from the world over. A pedestrianised, cobbled street winds its way down the hillside passing the colourful gardens that characterise the village's pretty, whitewashed cottages, on its way down to the sheltered harbour. Local shops, pubs and restaurants crowd the working harbour from where the local fishermen show their daily catch of mackerel and check their lobster pots. Follow the stunning coast over the clifftops toward the romantic Hartland Point, or to the colourful market town of Bideford, with its quaint quay, medieval bridge and vibrant shopping area. Nearby, the famous Westward Ho! provides superb beaches and excellent watersports opportunities, while the Big Sheep Adventure Park will occupy the whole family! A beautiful and inspirational location for a memorable holiday.
