As you drive into Chittlehamholt you will instantly feel a sense of calm as this lovely rural north Devon village offers a warm and friendly welcome to all its guests. Foxglove Cottage sits at the heart of the village and has been refurbished throughout offering beautiful furnishings, sumptuous beds and linens as well as a secluded garden. This whitewashed semi-detached cottage is perfect for both a family getaway or for couples looking to escape the hustle and bustle of life! Do not forget your trusted four-legged friend who will also be warmly welcomed.
The wonderful owners will be on hand to greet you and make sure you locate the cottage which is tucked to the rear of the locally renowned Exeter Inn - you really can eat out every night if the mood takes you!
As you walk over the threshold the cottage will delight, with your eyes being drawn to the secluded garden with its beautiful sprays of colour thanks to the numerous flowerpots, meanwhile the raised decking and outside sofa create a wonderful place to relax and recharge. Back to the cottage and the sleeping arrangements, bedroom one has a comfortable double bed with an en suite shower-room. The second bedroom also boasts an en suite shower-room and has a 'zip and link' bed so it can either be configured as a super-king double or twin beds, you choose! Both bedrooms have been furnished to maximise the floor space with no detail overlooked.
The open plan living area benefits from a newly fitted kitchen with a larger than average breakfast-bar. A lovely spot for morning coffee as you enjoy that all-important breakfast, setting you up for a day of exploring or walking. At the end of the day the living area has a cosy sofa that you can sink into as you settle down to watch a film.
The owners of the Exeter Inn are the perfect hosts, the Inn is renowned for its food and whilst there is outside decking for patrons this is located at the front, with food service being during set times. As cottage guests you will have a dedicated parking space in the car park and of course will be guests of honour.
Chittlehamholt, and its sister village of Chittlehampton, are easy to reach and yet off the beaten track. The nearest market town is South Molton with its twice weekly (Thursdays and Saturdays) pannier market and quirky independent shops.
For a highly recommended blast of sea air, the nearest beach on the north Devon coast is just over half an hour away - miles of golden sand at Instow. Across the estuary, via the little seasonal passenger ferry, you can explore the historic fishing village of Appledore. A little further afield the coast becomes truly dramatic with wild cliff paths, rocky coves and fabulous surfing beaches.
