Cottage for two, situated in the attractive village of Weare Giffard in rural North Devon, just a short walk from a well-regarded 18th century pub and within a ten-mile drive of the local beach at Westward Ho!
Keen cyclists will enjoy the fact that the Tarka Trail, which boasts 40+miles of traffic-free cycle ways, is just a short distance from the property, whilst beach-lovers will fall in love with the two-mile wide sandy beach at Westward Ho!, which is just ten miles away. Those who like nothing more than exploring local towns, browsing shops, and sampling the local restaurants should be sure to visit the nearby town of Bideford, where there is also a bustling harbour, from where visitors can take the interesting day trip out to the island of Lundy. Other attractions in the local area include the visitor centre at Dartington Crystal, the gardens at RHS Rosemoor, and Hartland Abbey.
This property has an upside-down layout, meaning that on entering the cottage, guests will come first to the ground-floor bedroom, a comfortable double, next to which is a shower room with WC. Upstairs, the open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner occupies the whole of the first floor and offers beautiful views over the garden from the Juliet balcony. There is comfortable sofa seating, positioned so that guests can not only enjoy those views, but also the wood burner-effect electric fire, TV/DVD, hi-fi, and iPod dock. The dining table, sitting close to the window, seats two, whilst the kitchen area is equipped with an oven, hob, microwave, and fridge with ice compartment.
Outside, the property enjoys a private enclosed garden with a seating area and a pond, which is located just opposite the property, giving guests somewhere to sit back, relax, and enjoy the verdant surroundings. There is parking for one car directly outside the property, with further roadside parking available in the village.
