Cottage
Our 400 year old cottage is in the lovely North Devon village of West Down. Packed with original features such as the inglenook fireplace and wood floors this cosy cottage is equally welcoming in the heart of winter as coming in straight off the beach. There are 3 Bedrooms and 2 Bathrooms and an extra downstairs toilet. Downstairs has 2 reception rooms with SKY TV and a country kitchen & Utility room. There are some restrictions with the bed layout. The two upper bunk beds are only suitable for children. We can arrange for an additional double sofa bed (in the biggest bedroom) to be made up at an extra cost if your party is all adults or you want extra beds to a maximum of nine guests.

A walled garden gives you somewhere safe to play or sit and enjoy a summer BBQ, watching village life go on around you. In the barn there is some wet play facilities including table tennis and darts. We have off street parking at the cottage for one car. It can be busy at times, however there should always be another space outside our barn or alternatively, especially if you have more than one car, there is a free village car park just off of Thorn Park.

Such a lovely cottage in a quaint village. Extremely well equipped and very comfortable. Lovely wood burner, which made the cottage very cosy feeling - we didn’t feel the need to go out in the evenings. Thank you for a lovely stay.

About the neighbourhood
Just a few miles inland is the vast Exmoor National Park with unrivalled beauty if its a stiff coastal walk along the cliff paths or a ramble over the moors, as long as you always follow it with a Pub Lunch. Lynton & Lynmouth is worth a visit to explore this Victorian favourite. Walk along the river from Watersmeet and take teh clif top railway, powered by water & gravity. The harbour at Ilfracombe is worth a visit with its Victorian sea front and boat trips to Lundy or perhaps a half day fishing. It also boasts the exclusive restaurant owned by the famous artist Damion Hirst. His statue called VERITY stands majestically looking our to sea. She depicts a pregnant woman holding aloft a sword while carrying the scales of justice and standing on a pile of law books. Half of the scul...
Getting around
Located approximately 4 Miles from the wonderful beach of Woolacombe Bay, probably the best surfing beach in the UK . There are plenty of activities to keep the most adventurous family amused. With the Gulf Stream keeping sea temperatures comfortable you will find everyone enjoying the surf all year round. A car is probably essential during your stay, however there is a bus through the Village to Barnstable or a short walk down the hill to the main road gives bus routes both ways to Barnstaple and Ilfracombe and beyond
