The property

… 2 miles from Parracombe, and a 2½ mile walk from the little pebble beach at dramatic Heddon's Mouth, deep in a lush tranquil wooded valley, three cottages which started life as grain and animal barns. They nestle, with the farmhouse, in the shelter of mature trees and ancient hedgerows - full of wild flowers, birds and butterflies at the right time of year - and have 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. Shared use of laundry room (washingmachine, tumble drier) and games barn (table tennis, pool table). Spring water.
The Roundhouse: a stylishly converted reverse-level cottage with tables/chairs and bench placed to catch the sun and a 50 yard meander through meadow opposite (unfenced stream) to a totally private, sheltered sunny spot (table/chairs) for outdoor meals, day-dreaming and listening to birdsong. Hall (for coats/boots) to inner hall, off which spacious double bedroom (5’ bed) with en suite bathroom (suite plus hand-shower); roomy shower-room (suite). Stairs up to open-plan living/dining/kitchen (fridge, electric cooker) with TV/DVD, sloping ceiling and gorgeous views. No children, except pre-crawling babies. A smart, comfortable cottage with star-gazing tranquillity.

The place

Parracombe: tiny village (great pub, medieval church with famous Georgian interior, PO/shop, pottery) near Exmoor's dramatic coast in a valley midway between Lynton/Lynmouth, 8 miles, and Combe Martin, 6 miles. This is rugged, dramatic, deep-valleyed farming, wooded and moorland country: beautifully varied and unspoiled. Wide sandy beaches at Woolacombe and Croyde, about 15 miles.

The Roundhouse is a lovely property full of natural light. The views from the house and garden are outstanding. It was lovely to have a little private paddock as a garden. The interior was rustic with lots of natural wood and stone. The kitchen/diner was nicely furnished, and the green theme echoed the green hills and fields outside. The cottage was well equipped and comfortable. The water was always piping hot, and electric heaters were provided although we didn't need them. A selection of books was provided, as well as maps and plenty of local information. The owners were helpful and friendly. A faulty bathroom light was fixed ASAP. There is a lovely walk directly from the cottage to Heddon Mouth, with a Hotel/Pub (The Hunters Inn) en route. The area is gorgeous and full natural beauty. We recommend Kentisbury Grange for cocktails in stunning surroundings. The Great British Tea Shop in Ilfracombe serves lovely homemade cakes in generous quantities. Marwood Hills Gardens is a must for garden lovers. The place is full of charm, the staff are delightful and the lunches and cream teas absolutely delicious. For art lovers, Broomhills Art Hotel near Barnstaple is a must. A huge and diverse range of sculptures are displayed in a fantastic natural setting. Overall, this a great property for a couple who love the outdoors, and want a cosy place to come home to each evening. Thank you to all at Helpful Holidays. Your customer service and organisation was first class, as always!
