Property code: CARAW

This cosy but luxurious cottage in a tiny Devon hamlet is the perfect getaway in the quiet countryside for couples.

Situated in the North Devon countryside, this upside-down cottage is an idyllic retreat away from the hustle and bustle of city life. The sandy and surfing beach of Woolacombe is just three miles away and has a range of bars, restaurants and a lively nightlife if hamlet life is a bit too quiet for you! The beaches of Saunton and Croyde are also within easy reach, as is bustling Ilfracombe. Exmoor National Park is a short drive away, and offers those with a sense of adventure the opportunity to explore a part of Devon which is seldom seen by visitors.

Entry to this pretty cottage, set in a secluded Devonshire idyll, is downstairs. Enjoying an inverse layout, here you will find one king bedroom with a TV and a bathroom with shower over bath and WC. The lounge/kitchen/diner, which is upstairs, benefits from a spacious open-plan layout. Complete with comfy seating and a TV/DVD, it is a cosy spot to catch up on your favourite TV shows and films – or to simply curl up and read book. If you would prefer to stay in and cook than go out, the custom built kitchen offers an oven and hob, dishwasher, microwave and fridge with ice box. There is also a shared utility room in an outhouse adjacent to the property which has a washing machine, tumble dryer and freezer.

Off the lounge is a secluded private patio area and garden with stunning countryside views, seating and small BBQ - the perfect area for al fresco dining on a warm Devon evening in summer! Ample parking is available.

We really enjoyed our stay and we couldnt have been more comfortable. Unfortunately, because of the weather we were unable to make use of the lovely garden. If you are lucky enough to have sunny days the garden and numerous birds are there to be enjoyed.

A beautiful well kept cottage with everything you need. Very friendly and helpful owners. Little touches like the delicious cream tea, chocolates and wine were lovely. A comprehensive set of leaflets and maps of the area were useful. The cottage had a good phone signal and Wi-Fi should you need it. Super location for exploring North Devon.

Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

Whitstable is one of Kent’s most popular seaside towns, not only for its long shingle beaches, dotted with colourful huts and houses, but also for its annual Oyster Festival, when the town really comes alive. Here you can sample this renowned delicacy which has been collected in the area since Roman times and brings visitors from all over the globe to get a glimpse of the first catch of the season. Still a working harbour, you can sample a plethora of seafood from the stalls and restaurants as you watch the fishing boats return from sea, or pop up to the bohemian main street with its quirky colourful shops and galleries. Keep to the seaside theme and hire bikes to ride along the coast to Herne Bay just two miles away, or try the famous inland Crab and Winkle Way, which follows the old railway line between Whitstable and Canterbury and is packed with history and nostalgia. Relax with lazy days at the beach, building sandcastles and exploring hidden rock pools or take a long walk along the vast stretch of shingle beach. The area has lots of other beach walks, as well many country and woodland trails nearby, perfect for both you and the family dog! For a little culture, pay a visit to the town’s famous 18th century Castle and Gardens, Playhouse Theatre and Whitstable Museum and Gallery, all perfect for an afternoon or evening out. Only eight miles north of the cathedral city of Canterbury with its popular glass-fronted Marlowe Theatre, you are also just half an hour away from the up-and-coming seaside town of Margate and 45 minutes away from the port of Dover with its famous white cliffs. Slightly further afield, you will find the historic Cinque Ports towns of amongst others, Rye, Hastings and Tenterden where you will find a variety of spectacular monuments and beautiful castles to visit with all the family. Whitstable really is the perfect place for those who want to get back to how holidays used to be – full of fun, adventure and family.
