The Old Coach House is beautiful.
Set in the heart of War Horse country.
The bright and airy open plan living area. Please take care when using the spiral staircase.
The dining and living area provide a comfortable and spacious place to sit back and cosy up in front of the rather large wood-burner.
The compact and well-equipped kitchen which leads through to the bedroom.
The inviting master bedroom, which leads through into the en suite.
En suite fully fitted with shower over, and a bath, perfect for relaxing in after a full day of exploring this wonderful countryside.
Looking back at the living/dining area from the kitchen. The light pours in from every angle in this charming house.
A very useful mezzanine provides extra room to escape to, which also provides flexibility of accommodation. Through the door, there is a WC and wash-basin for extra ease.
There's very tasteful and relevant decor.
Just up the hill across the village green is the delightful Duke of York Inn. Great for a spot of food and a refreshing beverage.
The Old Coach House is simply stunning, especially with its new thatch.
Down the side of The Old Coach House lies the path to the Tarka Trail. Endless exploring to be done in this beautiful part of the world.

We most definitely have holiday blues! What a beautiful place, instantly feel at home and relaxed! This cottage has everything you need, every detail has been thought about. The pictures do not do this place justice and was surprised on how big the place was. The pub over the road is so cozy and the staff can’t do enough for you. Highly recommend to anyone who wants sheer peace and tranquility.

This cottage is the perfect place for a "get away from it all" break. It's rural location is ideal for promoting relaxation and rest. Everything you could need is provided. It looks fantastic from the photos but the description does not do it justice.

A great place.

The village is gorgeous. The locals are very welcoming and friendly and the pub is fantastic.

Stunning cottage with loads to offer in a great location. It's perfect for a getaway as is lovely, quiet and cosy. Also great for if you want to explore as there are footpaths leading straight from the cottage. The pub up the road is fantastic for dinner but the cottage also provodea everything you need if you want to cook yourself.

We had a brilliant stay and would recommend it to anyone.

A delightful rural idyll with a wealth of opportunities for walking and visiting interesting places including the "War Horse" farm and museum, with a superb old pub 2 minutes' walk away and the church 4 minutes' walk away. We would recommend the villages of Sticklepath and South Zeal too.
