This bright and airy cottage, sleeping four people and two dogs, has stunning countryside views from its mature garden. Situated in Bishops Nympton which is near South Molton, Lower Court Cottage dates back more than 200 years and has been beautifully renovated to provide a contemporary and characterful holiday home.
A useful hallway with a comfy settle-type bench provides a welcome entrance to the cottage – and somewhere to store your boots and shoes. This leads into the open-plan lounge/diner which has bi-folding doors opening out onto a sunny veranda which in turn leads onto the beautiful garden. The separate dining room has a woodburning stove for cooler evenings and a cosy settee, whilst the well-equipped kitchen has everything you’ll need to rustle up a delicious evening meal. Upstairs there are two bedrooms – a king and a double – and a modern shower room.
The cottage is situated just on the edge of Bishops Nympton which now has a local shop and Post Office, which has a community run village shop. The market town of South Molton with its wide range of shops, restaurants and pubs is just over 3 miles away and the stunning Exmoor National Park is just a short drive. The park 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 1000 different flowering plants and grasses, the highest number of wild Red Deer in England and free living native Exmoor ponies, perfectly adapted to the upland conditions of Exmoor – just to name a few! Further afield, Tiverton is a ten minute drive away. Here you can visit Bickleigh Mill, one of Devon’s largest rural shopping, eating and recreation destination which is housed within an 18th century historic working water mill.

Just perfect and the welcome scones, jam & creamRev Anna Catlin - 19th March 2018
We loved the cottage as it had great views across the countryside, it was lovely and quiet and the housekeeper was really lovely lady and very helpful. The community shop was very handy if we forgot something and if we wanted something they didn't stock a local Supermarket was available just 3 miles away.Anne Lucas - 22nd January 2018
Lovely place furnished and equipped to high standard, warm and cosy. Lots of lovely Christmas decorations and seasonal welcome pack. Ms Liz Anderton - 30th December 2017
It was delightful, with excellent instructions for all appliances, beautifully warm, and with a wonderfully equipped kitchen - mixing bowls, cookie cutters, assorted baking trays and cake tins, as well as the expected pots and pans.Mrs Catherine Khurana - 4th November 2017
Wonderful cottage, just what we needed for a quiet get-away. Top class decor and comfort.Mr Alan Bourne - 29th October 2017
We have already booked another holiday with Marsdens in Lynton Corwall for Easter 2018 and may book another between now and Easter probably Lynmouth.Mr Nicholas Herbert - 24th October 2017
The cottage was very well equipped and clean. Everything we needed was there and the welcome touches much appreciated Mrs Anita Cave - 19th September 2017
Lovely cottage, which is very well equipped. Nice location with plenty of wildlife.Mr Andrew Kendall - 29th August 2017
Considering that we booked late on and the location being slightly further away from the coast than we had wanted to stay it was a great home for us and we all loved being there. I have recommended it to family and friends. Modern facilities with a warm country feel. Thanks, AndrewMr Andrew Harris - 8th August 2017
We really have enjoyed our stay. After the days out exploring it has been such a pleasure to return to the cottage. We have so enjoyed your beautiful home. So much thought has gone into the furnishings. With the beautiful bed linen, comfortable beds and sofas, gorgeous curtains and blinds. Even down to the hair dryer in the basket all plugged in and ready to go, just so thoughtful. We have really appreciated how well the kitchen is equipped, and all the lovely nick naks that make this cottage like a home and not just a rental house.Mrs H - 24th June 2017
