Property code: VALEN
An idyllic thatched cottage nestled in a peaceful riverside village where you can enjoy the best of both North Devon’s coast and countryside.
This charming holiday cottage enjoys a traditional village location with the local inn; cricket club and children’s play park all just a short walk away. The surrounding area is perfect for those who enjoy walking or cycling, with the Tarka Trail accessible from the village, awash with wildflowers and presenting beautiful views of coastal towns along the way. The sandy beach of Westward Ho! is just six miles away, Bideford with its range of quirky shops and restaurants is four miles and Torrington, which offers an indoor swimming pool, heritage centre and Dartington Crystal is three miles away. Slightly further afield, you’ll find the historic towns of Clovelly and Hartland with breath taking cliff-top walks on either side.

The well-equipped kitchen offers fitted units, granite work surfaces, a fridge/freezer, separate integrated fridge ideal for wine/beer, gas oven, hob, dishwasher, microwave, washing machine and an oil-fired Rayburn (which can be used at an additional cost). The cosy lounge features exposed beams, a large stone fireplace with woodburner (first basket of logs included, then £5 each thereafter), TV/DVD, Hi-Fi, Bluetooth soundbar.
