About the property

Cottage in North Street, Braunton, Devon, England - Beach 2 Miles, Village Pub 200 Yards, Many Family Attractions Nearby

Our spacious cottage, originally part of Devon Longhouse, has a rustic charm enabling you to relax and slide into your holiday. Braunton village can provide you with all your food provisions during your stay (be it morning croissants, takeaway lunch or tea, dining out or fresh ingredients for a little home cooking) leaving you to concentrate on visits / trips / activities / relaxing on the beach. The log burning stove that nestles in the red brick fireplace creates a lovely evening atmosphere with which to plan the next day or curl up with a book or favourite film. The large kitchen is well equipped with the farmhouse table providing plenty of room to enjoy meals together. Upstairs, there are three comfortable bedrooms, one kingsize, one double and one twin room, with a fully tiled, family bathroom that has a power shower. There is also a garage enbloc, around the corner for your use which will take an average family sized car (We fit an S-max in it).

About Nicola Bingley

Whilst we live in the landlocked Midlands we have been surfing at Croyde and Saunton Sands for over ten years and love the North Devon Coast and Braunton. Our dream is to escape to the delights of Braunton permanently!

Nicola Bingley purchased this cottage in 2007

Why Nicola Bingley chose Braunton

We love the views, beaches, sea air, coastal walks and surfing.

What makes this cottage unique

It's great deciding what to have for tea and within 10 minutes either having been shopping you are cooking, or have returned with your takeaway or are sitting in your favourite restaurant.... a different one for every night of your stay. A different beach for every day of the holiday too, sitting round the fire in the evening, watching the flames, playing games and having a great time with the family.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Lovely cottage, and places to visit. Very handy for everything – plenty of great meals out, we haven’t cooked anything! Yvonne & Avril, Sept 2009

Nice, spacious cottage, a great base for exploring N.Devon. Particularly loved beaches and Tarka Trail. Deborah, Kevin & James Cole, July 2011

A fantastic cottage & wonderful local area – what a week. Trips to Clovelly (wear sensible shoes) Woolacoombe, Barnstaple, we even braved surfing and zorbing! Nights by the fire were amazing. Tamara Pitt, Lawrence Holland & friends, April 2010

Wonderful, happy stay!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved staying in this cottage. Ideally situated for a wander into the village. Very tastefully furnished. When some family arrived they were saying things like...Wow! This is lovely! We would definitely stay again. At first we weren't sure about where to park but then found the garage at the back and parked in front of it. Highly recommend.

Long weekend stay at this property

  • 4 of 5

The house is in a perfect position for walking into Braunton where you can find a good selection of food shops, pubs and places to eat or to get takeaways. The house was clean and had everything you might need to have a relaxing time at the hospital use.

Lovely cottage in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Our second visit to North Street proved to be just as lovely as the first time. The booking process went smoothly with the owners providing a friendly and efficient service. The cottage was a real treat with everything catered for. Everything was spotless and the location is perfect for exploring everything North Devon has to offer. Excellent value and once again five star accommodation!
