Please note There is a sloping bank and an unfenced river 10 yards away.\n \u003e National Trust Holiday Property\nCoastguard Cottage 2 is nestled in secluded woodland down a rough track in the beautiful Peppercombe Valley just ¼ mile from the beach. It is one of three terraced whitewashed cottages which are steeped in history as this is where the officers lived when policing the seas for smugglers which later became the life-saving Coastguard Service and where this cottage gets its name.\nThe cottage has been refurbished with a bright and modern interior but still retains its 19th century character with a large inglenook fireplace and oak floors in the bedrooms. Relax in the lovely garden with a picnic under the leafy canopies listening to the bird song with butterflies fluttering in the summer months.\nDon’t forget your bucket and spade as Peppercombe Beach is nearby with a sandy expanse at low tide. Clovelly with its famous steep cobbled street is just 3 miles away and is well worth a visit Bideford just 4 miles away. Beach ¼ mile. Shop 2½ miles pub and restaurant 1 mile. \n " https://img.chooseacottage.co.uk/Property/143/840/1437069.jpg NT012008

    out of 10

    We were quite disappointed with this holiday in a National Trust cottage. I have just checked the online description again before writing this to make sure it was not my fault I didn't 'get it'. From the picture I thought it was up high on a coast hopefully overlooking the sea or countryside. It was actually set in a deep dark ravine with no view at all and very dark. Access was down a steep unmade up road which made us really concerned for our tyres, suspension etc. Wheels and clutch slipping on the ascent. At the top of this track was a padlocked gate which had to be grappled with on every exit and entry. I really feel this is only suitable for 4x4s, certainly don't attempt it in a sports car or anything else low slung. The property description does not warn you of anything like this. It was only when I had paid the money that I learnt of the access situation and even then it wasn't really spelled out how difficult it was. On a more positive note, the cottage itself was lovely, cosy, well equipped and comfortable. My only negative is that the heating in the bathroom is inadequate. Fortunately the weather was mild. The pub at the top of this mile long access track was a very friendly and welcoming local.
