Gladstone is a stylish Grade II colonial style semi next door to the pub in the historic centre of Braunton. It is rumoured that Prime Minister William Gladstone stayed in the house during a visit to see relatives. The ground floor features a large open plan living area, which incorporates the fully equipped kitchen, dining room and lounge, with spectacular bay window. Guests can see views of the neighbouring church when seated in the comfy furniture around the fireplace. An added bonus is a separate utility room with a freezer and washing machine. There is a wet room through a low door off the kitchen with a slate floor and Italian marble wall tiles. There are two bedrooms on the first floor, the double beyond an unusual footbridge and another main room with king sized bed and en-suite facilities at the front of the property. The balcony is just for decoration. There is no access. More steep stairs lead up to the low-roofed top floor where there is a twin room, snug and bathroom, with stylish slipper bath. Mind your head. There is a table and chairs on the front porch under the veranda or for al fresco dining, there is a rear courtyard with a gravel patio and bench seating. The Black Horse pub is next door and more pubs, shops and restaurants can be found in the village, a short walk along the level Tarka Trail cycle path. The nearest beach is Croyde just three miles west

Gladstone cottage is a lovely, well furnished contemporary cottage yet it still retains some lovely original features. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay there, lovely location opposite the church and next to a pub and within walking distance of shops, restaurants and pubs in Braunton.
