Verbena Cottage


1.2 miles NW of Beaworthy / Sleeps 2 + cot

7 Nights from £320 - £695

This stunning area of north Devon is a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, boasting a blend of special landscapes, wildlife and rich cultural heritage. Verbena Cottage is found down an unmade lane in the middle of this reserve, one of five converted barns which nestle next to Winsford Walled Garden.

Renovated to a high standard using the latest eco-building techniques, this luxurious, single-storey, semi-detached retreat will keep you snug as a bug. The spacious, open plan living-room has a large corner wood-burner and views to the lake and meadow. The 6' bed sits comfortably in the large bedroom, which boasts a wonderful bathroom with a luxury shower cubicle.

Outside, the Owners’ passion for the great outdoors and landscaping is obvious. The flowers, wildlife, woodland walks, stream and lake – complete with summer-house and row boat (available during the summer months, depending on the weather) – will ensure that many an evening will be whiled away soaking up the peace and quiet of this glorious escape.
