About the property

E1901

Set amidst tranquil Devon countryside, these attractive cottages boast outstanding views over a valley teeming with wildlife and shared enjoyment of an indoor swimming pool and children's pool, open all year round and heated to around a delightful 30°C. A jacuzzi and sauna offer an opportunity to relax and unwind whatever the season, whilst the 8 acres of shared grounds afford plenty of space for gentle strolls and picnics. There is also an all weather tennis court as well as a games room with pool and tennis tables and, for children, a large, safe outdoor play area. North Hill Cottages sit within a short drive of Devon's famous golden coast – miles of sandy beaches at Woolacombe, Croyde, Putsborough, Westward Ho! and Saunton. These glorious beaches are a paradise for surfers of all ability levels, with boards, wetsuits and expert tuition available at most locations. Just 3 miles away is Barnstaple, North Devon's ancient capital with a charming blend of old and new.

A must stay!

  • 4 of 5

A lovely welcome from Adrain on arrival!

Explained workings of the cottage whilst showing us around! Thankfully didn't blink an eyelid at my hyperactive children running around excitedly exploring their new home!

Great location. Clean. Well stocked kitchen. Lovely touches like couple of dishwasher tablets, washing up liquid and dish cloth!

Improvements:couple hand towels in bathrooms, heating on in preparation of arrival as cottage was freezing!! It should be easier to get hold of someone to ask for advise, eg needed wifi booster and couldn't get anyone to answer door! Then wifi not working again couldn't find anyone or get anyone to hear me knocking at the main farmhouse!

These only little things, improvement here and 5 star perfect! But would certainly return! If your thinking of booking.....do it! You won't be disappointed!!
