About the property

Cottage between Clovelly and Bideford, North Devon, England - Peaceful Haven With Rural Tranquility, Birdsong And Country Walks

In this unspoilt part of Devon, surrounded by lanes with tall grass banks and the smell of the sea not far away sits this charming cosy cottage for 4.You will be given the warmest of welcomes by the owners Mike and Jo who live nearby whilst Alfie the cat may also check you out! The cottage has been lovingly restored to create a peaceful haven in which to relax and recharge your batteries. There is a large enclosed garden with sunny patio area, barbecue and comfortable furniture and a grassy wooded area opposite for picnics and play. The cottage has an open plan living and kitchen area, bathroom with shower and bath, and 2 light and airy bedrooms. Freshly painted in neutral shades the cottage oozes charm and tranquillity and is well equipped. Crisp white bed linen and fluffy towels add to the feeling of comfort. After a bracing walk along the coastal path, a day at the beach or exploring the Devon countryside the local pub at Buckland Brewer is just over a mile away and serves delicious food. The cottage is very suited to both couples and families. We welcome children who can make as much noise as they like and we are also very happy to welcome dogs.

About Joanne Wade

Hello, our names are Mike and Jo and we have both lived in North Devon all our lives. We come from farming backgrounds and bought our present property in 2009 after some life changing health issues. We live nearby and are on hand should you have any questions. We have a wealth of knowledge regarding the locality and can recommend beaches, places to visit or the best local pub!

Why Joanne Wade chose Torridge

The cottage was purchased in 2009 along with our house. I had known the house and cottage my whole life having grown up on the opposite side of the valley and had always loved the property. When we found ourselves in a position where we had to move, we both fell in love instantly with the whole property, its tranquillity, atmosphere and location.

What makes this cottage unique

The cottage sits in its own grounds, with a lovely large enclosed garden suitable for children, adults and dogs. Guests often comment on how peaceful it is. There is an abundance of birdlife in the garden.

The inside of the cottage is cosy and welcoming, with the added benefit of Now TV for those who like to relax with the TV!

Alternatively while away an hour with a glass of wine on the patio!
