Description

Summerville is a 19th century stone and red brick terraced cottage sat above the East Lyn river surrounded by stunning countryside. The considerately restored home is approached over a delightful cottage garden with a driftwood path. A wide hall leads into a roomy and eye-catching dual aspect lounge with a bay window and woodburner. The well equipped double aspect kitchen/diner has rustic style oak units and a limestone tile floor. The back door leads on to a courtyard. On the first floor, there are three stylish bedrooms all served by a bathroom and cloakroom. The main double room and a twin both have views stunning over the river. The best place for an evening glass of wine while the sun sets is the paved front garden, where you can hear the river babbling past.

The pretty village of Lynmouth sits at sea level, following the River Lyn down to the sea, while Lynton sits higher in the trees, full of quaint narrow lanes and independent shops to explore. Often known as Little Switzerland, the area is a walkers' paradise. For a unique coastal walk, follow the path from Lynton to the iconic Valley of Rocks, famous for its unusual geology and intrepid goats. Take a trip on the water-powered funicular cliff train to visit Lynton. Head inland 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. A short drive west takes you to Ilfracombe, which has many attractions including the harbour, with Damien Hirst’s infamous bronze statue Verity

Reviews

It was a lovely holiday. The area is amazing and the cottage was gorgeous. Very impressed with local pubs/eateries.

Mrs Kay T,

A beautiful, well kept cottage. First impression was confirmed throughout our stay.

Mr David H,

Lovely position and a cosy home from home.

Mrs Janice F,

Lovely haven for the two of us, never spent so much time in a holiday property before, the garden a delight without feeling like a fish bowl so close to a busy footpath.

Mr David P,

Excellent all round!

Ms Janine B,

Really gorgeous property in a beautiful state of upkeep. We loved it.

Ms Karen C,

Couldn't fault anything. Excellent

Mrs Beverley B,

What a holiday home should be: a shining example of a market leader.
