The North Devon coast is just a short distance away and long stretches of golden sand at Croyde, Saunton and Woolacombe. For a slice of local history, head to the town of Great Torrington, otherwise known as the ‘Cavalier Town’ from the civil war of 1646.

The accommodation adjoins the owner’s house but ensures privacy throughout your stay. The open-plan kitchen/lounge/diner is light and spacious with a serene and cosy feel. In the compact kitchen, you will find an electric oven and hob, microwave and fridge/freezer. Enjoy a romantic meal for two at the dining table in the window before settling in for the night in the lounge area, which features a cosy wood burner and TV. The king-size bedroom with en-suite wet room overlooks the pretty garden through dual-aspect windows, which in turn fill this room with plenty of natural light.

Outside, there is a picturesque patio area surrounded by beautifully stocked beds and planters. Relax in the sunshine with an evening drink as the water feature trickles away or take a walk through the owner’s raised bed and fruit garden. The wider garden is a acre of stunning formal garden with lawn.

Very lovely cottage which is well equipped with all that you need & set in a beautiful garden which is a credit to the owners, especially as guests are able to make full use of it. A lovely touch of a cream tea + milk in the fridge courtesy off Anna, & John is very interesting to chat to. We were able to visit some some very pretty places as the scRead moreenery is stunning. A visit to RHS Rosemoor is a must, we spent a good 4 hours there as so much to see. A wonderful week away! Hide

We had the nicest time here - it is remote, but the fridge freezer is a good size for bringing your food. I saw so many beautiful birds here Ive never seen before - nuthatches, bullfinches, a woodpecker! The gardens are wonderful and the accommodation really clean and nice. Our pup settled well in the night & loved the garden!

The cottage is lovely & quiet with stunning views. Very comfortable with everything you need. Immaculate gardens & a lovely big grassed area for lively dogs to run around. It is remote about 30 mins drive to the nearest Town but its worth it for the quietness & stunning surrounding views. We really enjoyed our stay!

A well maintained spacious property set in a beautiful large garden. It is wonderfully quiet and star gazing is incredible with very little light pollution. Whilst it is central to North Devon it's location is a little remote along narrow country lanes 5 miles from the nearest town.

I would recommend this cottage if you like peace and quiet. Garden lovely with plenty of room to throw a ball for dogs. Use of large field too. Great for bird watching with feeder outside patio doors, lovely to watch. Would not recommend though if elderly or not steady on your feet as the walking area is slabs with gravel between.

Location

Map
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.
