About the property

Sleeps 6

Hugglepit Cottage is a 17th Century delight with exposed wooden beams and an inglenook fireplace. Two large living rooms provide ample space indoors. The first is a dining and living space with open fire and the second a large and unique space for larger parties. French windows open out onto a patio for barbeques and the orchard. An acre of gardens and woodland means there is plenty of space to play, relax and explore. Two double and two single rooms in the same character mean a comfortable nights sleep for all.

Cosy country hideaway

  • 5 of 5

My family had a lovely Easter break at Hugglepit Cottage. The spotlessly clean house has every comfort - comfy beds, well equipped kitchen, sociable living space and lovely roaring fires for cooler nights. The garden is spacious & beautiful, with a little wood that my children found quite magical. The views across to Lundy are stunning & we were treated to spectacular sunsets during our stay - as well as delicious fresh eggs from our hosts.

The house is fantastically located to explore Clovelly, the lovely North Devon coast & the Torridge estuary.

What more can I say: Hugglepit Cottage was a huge hit with the young, middling and old among us.

Great place for a long weekend

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful. Peaceful. Amazing for the kids. Host couldn't have been more welcoming. Easy access to the sea, coastal walks, great beaches. Couldnt recommend this place more, if it's free then snap it up. If travelling with more than one couple then it's worth noting that, while there are 4 bedrooms, there is only one double bed

Hugglepit Cottage is an ideal holiday retreat for couples and families alike. From the rugged cliffs of Hartland Point to the sandy beaches of Westward Ho! and Bude and within easy walking distance of the picturesque village of Clovelly, Hugglepit Cottage has something for everyone.

For Children, the Milky Way adventure park is less than five minutes' drive away and the Big Sheep offers some extreme adventuring. For bigger kids, the surfing along the north coast of Cornwall is second to none in the UK. For cyclists and ramblers, Hugglepit is also close to the Tarka Trail and the South West coast path.

This 17th Century delight with exposed wooden beams and an inglenook fireplace sleeps up to seven people. Two sitting rooms provide ample space for families to spread out and relax, and an acre of gardens and woodland offers space to play, relax and explore.
