Oriel Cottage is a delightful barn conversion and, along with its sister property House Martins, sits in secluded rolling landscape alongside the owners' own Georgian country house. Adding to the luxury is an outside hot tub so you can unwind with a glass of wine in the bubbles enjoying the scenery around this stunning home on the fringes of Exmoor National Park. Exposed stonework, structural timbers and slate flooring give the building an old world charm, while a woodburner promises a cosy welcome after exploring North Devon. The roomy living area has patio doors opening onto a large lawned garden with patio and garden furniture for al fresco dining. The stylish bedrooms are at each end of the barn. A double just off the lounge has further patio doors and has an en-suite shower room. The second has a King sized bed and another Single bed to add extra options for sleeping arrangements. A stylish family bathroom with roll top bath completes the accommodation. A short drive takes you to Ilfracombe, which has a delightful mix of Victorian and Regency architecture, pretty harbour, independent shops, restaurants, cafes and pubs. The harbour, with Damien Hirst’s infamous bronze statue Verity, and the Tunnels Beaches, are well worth a visit along with the award-winning Ilfracombe Aquarium, fascinating Ilfracombe Museum, Larkstone Leisure Park, Hele Cornmill and Chambercombe Manor - one of Britain's most haunted houses. Or head east for Exmoor National Park, which has Europe’s very first International Dark Sky Reserve, the tallest tree in England, the highest cliffs in England, almost 250 species of bird and over 1,000 different flowering plants and grasses, the highest number of wild red deer in England and wild native ponies, perfectly adapted to the upland conditions of Exmoor

The property was lovely and spacious and in beautiful surroundings. The beds were very comfortable and the hot tub was huge!

Miss Natalie P,

Excellent place to stay. Thought the decor and layout was perfect. It was just a shame about the weather.
