Kentisbury Cottage has an enclosed garden with a wooden fence on one side and a bank and hedging to the other. The garden seating and barbecue are at the bottom end of the garden.
This is a beautifully renovated, very old cottage - there are therefore quite a few internal steps to different areas, steep stairs and some low beams - all adding character but do take care.
The open plan sitting-room overlooks the lovely enclosed garden.
The master bedroom, as with the other bedrooms, has painted floorboards and original cottage doors.
A well-designed kitchen makes the most of the space with a walk-in larder at the far end.
Coming in through the garden-room, the hall is as prettily presented as the rest of the house.
This bedroom also has a double bed and overlooks the garden.
The bathroom is really pretty - a three-quarter sized bath fits perfectly and you have the flexibility of a shower too (there is also a downstairs WC).
Kentisbury Cottage is tucked down a private lane on the edge of the village. The shop and one of the two pubs are a perfect five minute stroll away.
There is a stable-door to the back of the cottage where you can park your car.
This is Woolacombe Beach. It adjoins Putsborough Beach and this wonderful stretch of sand is the closest to the cottage.
Another view of the master bedroom which has a side window across the lane and the fields, and a front window looking over the garden.
This is the twin bedroom. Please take care of the step outside the bedroom door, to the inset landing at the top of the stairs.
Another view of the twin bedroom.
The garden-room enjoys a view over the south-facing garden and is a lovely peaceful place to sit with a coffee before starting the day.
Explore the World Heritage Site at Braunton Burrows - the largest expanse of sand dunes in the UK!
Yes another amazing beach - this is Saunton Sands.
A very short drive along the coast is the renowned surfing beach at Croyde Bay.

Our second visit to Kentisbury cottage and it was even better than last time

September 2020

Our third stay in Kentisbury Cottage in a very special part of the country. It really does feel like home from home with all the comforts you need for a great holiday, nice meal at The Rock Inn and exceptional cream tea Town Farm House in Morthoe, near to Putsborough beach perfect for our Dog Rowley. Will be back again next year

August 2020

A lovely cottage, with some carefully considered interior features, perfectly located for a relaxing village stroll and beach fun. Shop v handy, pre-book pubs to eat out. Helpful owners manual. A great week away.

July 2020

Great location for popular beaches and pubs. Lovely comfortable cottage. The nearby shop was a Godsend.

January 2020

Liked the large bright living room, which would be perfect for families. It was a pretty, bright and cosy room. Loads of books and games provided, though mostly for children. Liked the safe garden for the dogs. Liked the furnishings and decor. Two pubs and a well stocked shop within walking distance.

The cottage is super and in a great location within a few minutes walk of two great pubs and a community shop which was well stocked. Lack of public footpaths nearby for the dog but plenty of great walks a short drive away. We really loved the cottage and hope to come back next year. Thank you to the owners

Brilliant position down a farm lane and two very good pub/restaurants within 5 minutes. A very good centre from which to explore this beautiful corner of North West Devon. Thoroughly recommend it.

April 2019

Lovely cottage, well situated if you like long walks which we do.

November 2018

A fabulously situated cottage in Georgeham, well equipped and great for dogs.

Excellent beaches just a few minutes away by car, and excellent pubs just a few minutes walk. Braunton is a short car drive that has everything you need.

A great place to get away from it all.

July 2018

The cottage is great, would definitely recommend. Small things to upgrade/watch out for as it’s easy to reduce the experience through small niggles.

We were looking for a special 'honeymoon' retreat and Kentisbury Cottage, was exactly this - it exceeded our expectations in every way!

The standard of cleanliness, comfort, furnishings and equipment was excellent, we did not want for anything. The location is perfect; beautiful beaches on your doorstep, two fabulous pubs, with excellent food and first class service and a local community shop - what more could you want?!

We have already highly recommended to our family and friends and we will definitely be looking to return.

We had a magical time, thank you very much :)

We had a fantastic time, the cottage was beautiful very well equipped, clean, comfortable and cosy. Great village location walking distance to 2 pubs, great walks and surrounding area was great too. All the party have definitely agreed we will be back.

September 2015

Gorgeous cottage that was actually a really good size with a lovely secure garden for the dog. My 6ft3in partner did have a few head crunches on the beams and door ways but i was fine, being only 5ft5in. We also found the stairs to be quite steep but not enough to stop us going again. We got engaged at Kentisbury Cottage on our break so I'm looking forward to coming back for our honeymoon break! Fantastic break in a great location.
