Situated down a quiet country lane on the outskirts of Abbotsham and within a small cluster of properties, this 19th century stone cottage accommodates four people and two dogs. The Cottage has a living room and separate dining room – both with a wood burning stove, three bedrooms and a fully enclosed lawned garden and patio. It overlooks beautiful countryside and is just a ten minute stroll to the thatched village pub, well-known for its excellent meals. Normally the owner’s own home outside of the holiday season, The Cottage is very cosy, well-equipped and has a real home-from-home feel. The living room has a couple of comfortable settees well-placed to enjoy the original inglenook fireplace and welcoming woodburning stove, whilst the dining room, which also has a woodburning stove, not only provides a more formal room to eat, but an alternative quiet space if needed. The well-equipped kitchen has a door leading out onto the patio which overlooks the lawned garden. A steep staircase leads up from the living room to three bedrooms on the first floor each offering original wooden floors and countryside views. The family bathroom is also on this first floor and has a shower over the bath, heated towel rail, basin and WC. Outside there is a lawned area and paved patio with garden furniture ideal for al-fresco dining.
The small friendly village of Abbotsham is less than 3 miles from the larger town of Bideford with its choice of shops, cafes and restaurants and the popular surfing Blue Flag beach at Westward Ho! Riding stables, a links golf course, Atlantic Village outlet shopping centre and The Big Sheep family attraction are all easily accessible. For walking enthusiasts a stretch of the South West Coast Path runs along Abbotsham cliffs and there are other designated footpaths and bridleways within the parish.

We had a lovely week. From this location we were able to visit most of the local beaches, sites and towns. The Cottage is a gorgeous property and we felt very at home from the moment we arrived, the Thatched Inn is perfect and we shopped at the local allotments for our fruit and veg. We will definitely wish to return next year.Mr Simon Russell - 6th September 2017
