Description

Ashtree cottage is a delightful stone cottage with a sympathetic contemporary extension, nestled in beautiful countryside within the small hamlet of Muddiford. Surrounded by lush fields and grazing animals, it is the perfect choice for a peaceful and relaxing holiday. Being close to the edge of Exmoor National Park and within easy driving distance of the spectacular North Devon coastline guests here really can enjoy the best of both worlds.

Imaginatively designed the main entrance is on the upper level. A large glass door leads in from the patio to the kitchen/dining room, with an impressive vaulted ceiling and high beams. Also on the upper floor is the impressive lounge with a full height feature window allowing fine views across the meadowland, and bi-fold doors opening out onto the patio. A contemporary wood burning stove is in the corner of the living room, great for those cosy evenings. The master bedroom is impressive and has a built-in wardrobe and imaginative lighting. A separate terrace where guests can take breakfast al fresco, is accessible from this bedroom. Just next to the master bedroom is a luxurious wet room with large walk-in shower. 

From the corner of the kitchen a  solid wood staircase leads down to the lower level and two further  bedrooms, a comfortable double and a single (which can also be made into a twin (please request at the time of booking).  Both bedrooms are served by a separate modern bathroom.

Outside on the upper level, the cottage has an attractive patio complete with gas barbecue and circular garden table for six. There is an outside shower with hot water handy for rinsing down after a day exploring the countryside and coast. The patio and lawned garden are enclosed by glass balustrades and wooden fencing, making the most of the wonderful rural outlook and useful for your four legged friends. In addition outside the master bedroom is a separate terrace with glass balustrades.

Ashtree Cottage is located where the lane ends. The  lower garden/driveway is enclosed by wooden fencing and two five bar gates, the second of these gives direct access to twelve acres of meadowland with a stream running through, occasionally used by the owners sheep and shetland pony. The footpath from the lane, across into the fields is seldom used, however, you may decide to take a stroll down to the Muddiford Inn for well earnt refreshment!

For friends, families or couples Ashtree Cottage is a true delight and guests will love to return again and again.

Reviews

Cottage was in a really good location. Easy access to everything eg. beaches, towns etc.

Mrs Belinda J,

A very well presented cottage which has been refurbished to a high standard. It’s even better in person than in the photos. The owner was extremely helpful and answered our queries promptly. The location is perfect for exploring the local area by car and on foot. We’re already looking forward to planning a return. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this cottage or the service provided by Marsdens.

Mrs Zoe M,

Very warm and welcoming

Mrs Jan L,

Ashtree Cottage was without doubt the best holiday cottage we have ever rented - clean, extremely well equipped, modern, tastefully decorated, the perfect position for a diverse, fun and active holiday and only 3.5 hours from home! Will definitely be returning and also exploring your other properties

Mrs CLAIRE E,
