This quintessential chocolate box, thatched cottage can be found in the idyllic hamlet of Stoke in the village of Hartland on the north coast of Devon. Within minutes of the coast where you will discover hidden coves and miles and miles of coast paths to enjoy no matter the season. You will be hard pushed to find a better location and charming cottage making this the perfect holiday escape for a small family, a walking couple or a sole traveller looking for peace and tranquility, not forgetting your much loved four-legged friend.

Step over the back door threshold into the cottage that has benefitted from a modern extension whilst retaining all the original charm yet creating a modern spacious Shaker kitchen with views out across the back garden. As you walk onto the dining-room the tiled floor continues in this room, whilst small it allows you to enjoy a meal together whilst planning the next day's walk! Lastly the sitting-room is a rather charming nook to retreat to at the end of the day and the ideal spot to enjoy a much-loved classic film on the Smart TV. Vanstone Cottage has character and charm throughout, you can almost hear the history of this cottage that offers the warmest of welcomes to all of its guests.

As the stars come out and the land of nod calls, climb up the steep original stairs where you will discover both bedrooms with original beams, cute windows, cosy beds and crisp linens! The perfect combination for a restful sleep each night. With the cottage being of an age, the owners have invested in a rather lovely bathroom which is located on the ground floor off the kitchen.

The cottage garden provides the perfect spot for a lovely al fresco meal with stunning views of the rolling countryside and from time to time there might be friendly livestock as your neighbours! This cottage offers a great location, being minutes from the coast and Hartland Quay you really will be spoilt for choice when planning days out. Whilst staying at Vanstone Cottage and whether exploring near or far, the warmest of welcomes awaits on your return and of course the joy of your own parking space!

Leave your front door and discover little country lanes or footpaths that take you to the coast where the coves at Hartland Quay and Welcombe are two of the most popular with local people and explorers to the area, as is Hartland Point kiosk that operates during the high season; this spectacular walk is worth the step count. If you like to walk you also have the option of a country lane walk to Hartland village where you can purchase those essentials after a coffee and meander around.

If you decide to head out in the car, Hartland Abbey is a stunning historic house with beautifully tendered gardens, woodland trails and a beach walk. The pretty village of Clovelly is a short drive away with steep cobbled streets leading to the picturesque harbour, a day spent here will be memorable.

Perhaps the stunning beaches of Bude (15 miles) and Westward Ho! (14 miles) are calling? Their water sports and tidal sea pools offering fun for the whole family.

Vanstone Cottage really is the perfect backdrop to a much-needed holiday, and we have no doubt you will want to return year after year.
