Ostler’s Cottage is a delightful retreat for two in a stunning area of north Devon which boasts unique landscapes and heritage. Found down an unmade lane, this charming terraced cottage has been renovated to a high standard and is set within a courtyard flanked by four other cottages, surrounded by acres of beautifully landscaped grounds which include a private lake. Inside Ostler’s Cottage, the open plan living-room has everything to hand; doors lead out to a sun-drenched patio where solar panels above the cottage soak up the sun to heat the hot water. Upstairs, there is a delightful en suite shower-room, and the spacious bedroom provides plenty of room for a baby in a cot.
The grounds and the lake are beautiful and peace and quiet abound – you are guaranteed to return home with a smile and fond memories of this delightful retreat. A rowing boat is available during the summer months, depending on the weather. Garden lovers will be in heaven with not one but three wonderful gardens nearby; Winsford Walled Garden and Dugald Stark are only a stroll away, while RHS Rosemoor is a little further afield.
