Middle Beccott Cottage is a spacious and comfortable property which is located next to the owner’s 17th century farmhouse in 300 acres of National Trust farmland. It has beautiful gardens, mainly laid to lawn, and a separate lounge, dining room and kitchen.
Sleeping four people, there is a useful hallway when you enter the cottage which is perfect for storing coats and boots. The living room has plenty of comfortable leather settees and an electric fire for cooler evenings. The separate dining room has a large dining table and the well-equipped kitchen has everything you’ll need to rustle up a lovely meal in. The bathroom is downstairs and has a shower over the bath; whilst upstairs there are two bedrooms – a King and a Twin.
Outside, the lovely garden is great for families with young children who need to let off a little steam during the day. Middle Beccott Cottage is very close to 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. A trip to the National Trust’s Arlington Court is a must. The elegant Regency house has a Victorian garden, plus a carriage museum, lakeside walks and livestock. The nearby market town of Barnstaple is the commericial and agricultural centre of North Devon. It is a charming place that comfortably blends a handsome past with an energetic, present-day buzz. It has a mix of cutting-edge retail outlets, long-established family owned stores and little boutiques. The pannier market hosts local food producers interspersed with dozens of cafes. At weekends, Barnstaple makes wandering the streets a distinct pleasure, with performers and musicians out to entertain. If the weather turns nasty, you’re well provided for in the town.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Property was very comfortable, spacious and standard better than expected for the price paid. The landlady was lovely and very helpful. Very good value for money and we would very happily stay there again.
Lovely cottage in beautiful surroundings, peaceful and quiet. Plenty of heaters on hand if weather cold but we did not need them as the storage heaters were enough. Would recommend this to anyone wanting a quiet holiday and exploring the north devon coast.
Three generations for our second visit. Lovely weekend in this lovely cottage in a fantastic area.
Lovely warm, comfortable, well equipped cottage. Thank you!
The owner, Mrs.Dunn was friendly and helpful and had made nice touches to make us feel welcome e.g. tea, coffee and a packet of biscuits on arrival.
Many thanks for a clean, quiet and comfortable base for exploring the glorious countryside.
We have had a really enjoyable stay. Your cottage is definitely a home from home. We will be coming again - thank you!
Really very nice - clean, comfortable and quiet. We'll be back!
We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay in such a beautiful area.
Another wonderful week here in beautiful North Devon. We had brilliant weather and tried new activities this year - cycling the Tarka Trail and watching Borough Farm Sheepdog and Falconry - recommended! Thank you again and we will definitely come back!
