A lovely character cottage set in the heart of the Devon countryside, perfect for outdoor enthusiasts, keen walkers and couples.

Situated in a wooded valley, next to the owner's farmhouse, Annas Cottage gives guest the perfect opportunity to enjoy the peace and quiet of country life.

Just down the road in Torrington, attractions include RHS Rosemoor Gardens, the excellent Plough Arts Centre for interesting movies, 1646 Visitor Attraction and Dartington Crystal. For those who fancy venturing a little further, pretty Clovelly is a seaside town with steep cobbled streets that lead down to a harbour and the sea. For water sports and fishing, Tamar Lakes and Kilkhampton are a short drive away.

This spacious cottage offers one king-size bedroom, with sloping ceilings and plenty of space for a travel cot. The property offers one bathroom with shower over bath and WC. The lounge/diner has exposed stonework, a woodburner with first basket of logs included TV/DVD, and a hi-fi. The well equipped kitchen has everything you could need to rustle up some tasty food and has a dishwasher, electric oven and hob, fridge with ice compartment, washer/dryer and microwave. There is also an inner hallway, which is perfect for muddy walking boots, wellies or a dog basket.

Outside there is a small enclosed garden with seating and a BBQ and there is ample enclosed parking along the lane, next to the outdoor kennels.

We had a wonderful quiet long weekend here over May bank holiday. Upon arrival, we were greeted with a very yummy cream tea, which was perfect after driving down. The cottage was clean and well presented and the garden was a great sun trap to relax in after a walk. There was a lot of useful information available to help plan your stay and guide youRead more around the local area. Thank you for a wonderful weekend. Hide

Tranquil cottage tucked away in a valley, next to a stream. The Tarka Trail is 400m with good bike riding south to Meeth (impacted grit) and north to Bideford (on tarmac). The owner was very friendly, lives next door and greeted us with a cream tea. Warm with good furniture, newly decorated bedroom. For clarification its FreeSat not Sky TV.

Cozy an comfy for two people and two dogs. Access to you own field for the dogs was an absolute bonus. Just 5 minutes off the Tarka trail for walking or cycling. Plan you day around eating out elsewhere, Puffing Billy and Fremington Quay cafes recommended. Beaches at Instow and Westward Ho! excellent and nearby.

If you like peace and quiet and easy access to the Tarka Trail, this is a great place to be. You do have to walk or cycle on a country lane to reach it though but just watch out for cars and it's just 5 minutes. The garden at the back is a nice sun trap.
