The Cottage is a traditional Devon cottage hidden away in a tranquil rural location. It has a large enclosed garden.
The sitting-room with the inglenook fireplace is at the heart of the cottage.
French windows lead from the kitchen/breakfast-room straight out into the large garden.
There is so much space for children and four legged friends - all are so welcome here.
The galley-style kitchen has a utility-room - also home to the electric cooker - and shower-room at the far end.
There is also a Rayburn for lovely background warmth - and of course for cooking.
There is plenty of comfortable seating for all guests.
A separate dining-room is accessed off the sitting-room. Again, plenty of seating for all.
All the bedrooms are on the first floor. This is the master bedroom which looks out over the neighbouring orchard.
There is plenty of storage space in the bedroom.
A  second double bedroom also looks out over an orchard.
Another view of this bedroom.
The twin bedroom has plenty of space.
All the bedrooms are off a lovely wide landing.
There are some lovely welcoming touches in this cottage.
The single bedroom looks out over the large garden and across the fields beyond it.
As well as the shower-room downstairs there is a large family bathroom on the first floor.
A five-bar wooden gate encloses the parking-area in front of the cottage.
We all hope that you will be able to relax as soon as you arrive.
This is the view from the fully enclosed garden.
North Devon offers a wonderful coastline of rugged cliffs, harbours and seaside villages. This image is looking across at Instow from Appledore. Instow's beach is dog-friendly all year round.

Wonderful cottage, secure garden and great location!


From the minute you walk in, this cottage oozes charm and is very welcoming. There is everything you need (and more) for a perfect holiday. The wood burner is awesome!

Travelling with two dogs, one which is a ‘golden oldie’ means the list of boxes we need to tick is quite long and this cottage fulfilled all our requirements. The tiled floors, doggie extras and the totally enclosed garden made it the best dog friendly cottage we’ve ever stayed in. The use of a paddock is also a welcome bonus because the lanes are quite narrow for walking an old dog who can’t move quickly to side step any passing traffic . . . not that we saw much, other than the local farmer going about his daily routine.

The location is idyllic -so peaceful and the cottage is not overlooked (except by some inquisitive cows in the field next door.). The garden is private and lovely to sit in and soak up the tranquility that surrounds you.

This is the place to stay if you want total rest and relaxation but is relatively close to beaches, places of interest and amenities, making it an ideal property for everyone.


We had a lovely comfortable stay at the Cottage. It would have been perfect if we had some of the weather a few weeks earlier. However thats England. Very well appointed, comfortable cottage. If we come back to the area we would re-book if its available. Thanks The Wakley's Aug 2020.


Perfect cottage in a beautiful location. Easily accessible to lots of different places, activities and facilities in the immediate and surrounding areas. The cottage is cosy and everything needed for a enjoyable family holiday.


Extremely well maintained property, comfortable, warm and cosy Cottage. Brilliant for our 6 month old puppy, large well enclosed garden.


I stayed in the cottage with my husband and my two dogs it was clean tidy and well kept comfortable very quaint property, quiet location beautiful surroundings and not too far from the beaches and other places of interest, we loved our stay here and would recommend this cottage and ourselves will certainly book again.


An ideal get away from it all location, the cottage was warm and welcoming and provided everything we needed. Our two Border Terriers loved the totally enclosed garden. Perfect
