Situated in a tucked away position in Bickington this character Grade II listed cottage is the ideal place to enjoy a family holiday. The open plan living/dining room has a three seater sofa and two comfy armchairs which surround a wood burner in inglenook fireplace, adding character and warmth during the winter months. Reflecting the character and age of the property a steep staircase leads to the double, twin and single bedded rooms, which are all served by the family bathroom. A small fitted galley kitchen is well equipped and has views up over the garden. There is a washing machine and freezer in the brick garden out building adjacent to the back door and handy outside hanging space in the undercover porch area. Steps lead up to the large enclosed garden with patio area, picnic bench and a good sized lawned area, ideal for children’s play. An attractive summer house gives a nice relaxing space to enjoy a glass of wine after a busy day. Sunnymead is located off the main road but is only a short walk to the local pub, convenience store/post office and bus stop which is just at the end of the lane. The busy Market town of Barnstaple is just 10 minutes drive and has a theatre, cinema, huge range of restaurants, shops and the famous Pannier Market. Many delightful walks can be enjoyed from the property or a 10 minute drive will bring you to the seaside village of Instow with its dog friendly beach, pubs and restaurants. For those wishing to travel further afield you will find many other attractions including the Blue Flag beach at Westward Ho!, The Big Sheep family attraction and The Milky Way adventure park. The nearby scenic and car-free Tarka Trail provides a safe, level and easy cycle route (bicycles available to hire locally). Stop off for delicious refreshments at the popular Fremington Quay cafe. The wide surfing beaches of Saunton, Croyde and Woolacombe are across the river and all easily accessible in under half an hour, as are the glorious high moors, deep valleys, hills and woodland’s of Exmoor National Park.

We had a lovely stay at Sunnymead, and wouldn’t hesitate for a moment to recommend it to other users. It’s very well equipped, and clear that the owners wanted to make sure things are done properly. We were also both surprised and delighted to find little things like the fact they had left some milk and cookies waiting for us – a lovely and helpful surprise when we had been driving for seven hours… The beds are very comfortable, and the street is quiet. We made use of the car park for the week (only a minute’s walk away) which we found very cheap, and using the RingGo service meant we could set it up at the start of our break and then forget about it… There are decent pubs within walking distance. We had an issue with the plumbing in the bathroom, and once brought to the owner’s attention they had a plumber here in less than an hour who sorted it in about 15 minutes. You really can’t knock that sort of attitude – it’s clear you’re dealing with people who want to do things properly… We found lots of things to do around the North Devon area – Woolacombe, Instow and Ilfracombe perhaps being our highlights from a beach for the children point of view.
