Well positioned in the village of West Buckland in Devon with easy access to nearby towns and villages, beaches and moorland. Excellent pub at nearby Swimbridge, serving home-cooked food. Landkey village is 5.8 miles away and has a pub as well as a shop with a post office. South Molton is 6.2 miles away with its twice-weekly Pannier Market, and Barnstaple is 8 miles away and offers many high street brands. The ‘little white town’ of Bideford is within 16.5 miles where you can take the Oldenburg to Lundy Island. Beach lovers will love Saunton (14 miles), Westward Ho! (17 miles), and Croyde (19 miles). Take advantage of superb walking in Exmoor National Park (9 miles).

Entering the hallway, the staircase in front of you and the open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner to your right, well-furnished and equipped this room has a bright and light feel with Smart TV, feature stone fireplace with wood burner, a dining table and chairs and comfy sofa (which can be made into a pull-out double bed with linen provided on request) and feature chair beckon you to relax.

Highly recommend Little Grubbs . Ideally situated for exploring North Devon. Lovely warm welcome with a nice bottle of wine and a yummy chocolate cake plus extras. Spotlessly clean. Look forward to returning in the future. Watsons . Nottinghamshire

The owners were very friendly and gave me a warm welcome with some lovely touches - such as a chocolate cake on arrival, eggs, and butter, soda bread and a bottle of wine and flowers from the garden, these things mean a lot to guests, especially when not expected. Cleaning materials were provided, a small BBQ in the garden and nightlights which werRead moree a nice touch if on a romantic break. Secure parking and adequate space for you and the dog inside plus a secure gated garden. Tracy & Blu Hide
