9 Character Cottages in Rural Setting - Ivy (1 Bedroom, Sleeps 2)

Overview

Property

Updated: 21-Nov-2016
Cottages in Barnstaple, North Devon - Set in 8 acres with Indoor Heated Pool

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.

Great place to stay if you like a peaceful holiday

  • 5 of 5

The property we stayed in was clean, comfortable, with everything we needed. Its a lovely location, in the countryside, but only a couple of miles from Barnstaple. Would definitely recommend.

Wonderful place to stay above the world!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely relaxing stay in Devon, in this comfortable cottage which was quiet and had everything we needed. The swimming pool was well maintained and clean, as was all the other facilities. Having wood for the burner delivered to the door by the dog, was particularly lovely :0) We would recommend this set of cottages, and in particular Ivy, and hope to return for round two.
