Granary Cottage, and its neighbouring property Dairy Cottage, is situated on the outskirts of Exmoor National Park near a village called Swimbridge and is surrounded by stunning countryside.
Sleeping four people, this characterful cottage has beamed ceilings and wooden floors, a cosy living room and a private lawned garden. The nearest pub is just 300 yards away and there are plenty of pathways and bridleways running near the cottage. The living room is on the first floor and benefits from lovely views over the nearby fields and plenty of comfortable seating. A pretty single bedroom is also on the first floor. On the ground floor, there is a well-equipped kitchen/diner which has an electric cooker, microwave, fridge/freezer, washing machine and tumble dryer. The modern family bathroom has a shower over the bath. And a double bedroom with an additional single z-bed complete the accommodation.
Outside, the private, fully enclosed garden has a lawn and patio with garden furniture – perfect for an evening meal overlook the stunning countryside. Swimbridge is about four miles south-east of Barnstaple and twinned with the town of St. Honorine Du Fay in Normandy, France. It the home of the Rev. John “Jack” Russell who developed the Jack Russell terrier and is noted for its church - The Church of St. James - which has been described as a “treasure house” due to its fine carvings and memorials.
Nearby Barnstaple is well worth a visit - 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.

Granary Cottage was so pretty and so comfortable and we received such a warm welcome from the owners who even sent out of their way to provide a gluten free cream tea as my son is coeliac. We will definitely be back.Mrs Julie Willimont - 30th May 2015
