Just a short drive from the secluded dog friendly sand and shingle beach in the tiny cliff top hamlet of Bucks Mills. Bucks Mills is one of the most beautiful villages in north Devon a hidden gem with pretty white washed cottages speckled along a wooded valley.\nThis lovely barn conversion within the owners’ grounds is beautifully presented with a cosy wood burner ideal to curl up in front of on a chilly evening and the added luxury of underfloor heating throughout.

The nearby coastal path leads you to the famous fishing village of Clovelly and the unspoilt beach at Peppercombe or if you are feeling energetic you can walk all the way to Westward Ho. A village store and post office is just ½ mile away for your daily essentials and nearby Bideford has restaurants and town amenities along with boat trips to Lundy Island or hire a bike and explore the Tarka Trail. RHS Rosemoor Gardens Docton Mill and Hartland Quay are well worth a visit along with many pretty fishing villages to explore including nearby Instow and Appledore. For family fun the Big Sheep and Milky Way Adventure parks are a must. Beach 1½ miles. Shop ½ mile pub 1½ miles restaurant 2 miles. \n " https://img.chooseacottage.co.uk/Property/144/840/1446236.jpg UKC2740

    A wonderful cottage, very well equipped and peaceful. The owners were very friendly and helpful but also happy to leave us to ourselves. Located in an ideal place for many local attractions.

    Lovely, peaceful cottage, the owners couldn't have been more friendly and welcoming, didn't want to come home!



    out of 10

    We had an excellent stay. The facilities and welcome pack were superb. The information supplied by the owners about the surrounding area for pubs, beaches and places to visit was fantastic.

    Lovely welcome from Jane and Paul, very friendly and helpful. Great cottage, although off the beaten track, in a fantastic location for exploring North Devon and Cornwall.



    out of 10

    This is the best equipped house we have ever stayed in as it has absolutely everything you could need. The owners are lovely and so welcoming - on arrival there was a home baked cake, fresh eggs from Jane's hens, Easter eggs and fresh flowers. The whole cottage is beautifully presented with hand made patchwork quilts on the beds, good quality showers, a fab wood burner with loads of wood and kindling and a big fridge freezer with ice. So many great local walks and beaches for healthy fun and then super pubs and restaurants to balance the equation. Lovely outdoor area with table, chairs and barbeque - photos do not do it justice. I could go on and this would be the longest review in history but the bottom line is it is great, highly recommend and we will be returning as soon as we can.



    out of 10

    A very warm, cosy, clean, comfortable cottage with a well equipped kitchen in a beautiful, peaceful, quite isolated location. Not too far to travel for lovely walks, beaches, places to visit and amenities. Owners are very welcoming.
