Characterful 16th century cottage enjoying a fantastic location in the village of Saunton, just a twenty-minute walk (partly on main road) to the sandy beach, with its café and surf school.

This property enjoys a quiet rural location, and yet is just a two-minute drive to one of the area’s most popular beaches at Saunton Sands. This family-friendly beach offers a beachside cafe, surfboard hire and beach hut hire. The neighbouring village of Braunton is home to Braunton Burrows, an amazing sand dune system, which has been designated Man and the Biosphere Reserve. The surrounding area has many more beaches to enjoy, including those at Croyde and Woolacombe, whilst golfers will be pleased to discover that Saunton is home to an 18-hole championship course.

This property offers comfortable accommodation for four in a 16th century cottage. The age of the house means that there are some lovely original features, which are evident from the moment guests enter the property and come to the open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner, with its exposed beams and wood burner-effect gas fire. Guests can make themselves at home here, on the comfortable sofas from which they can enjoy the TV/DVD. The dining table seats five and is positioned just next to the kitchen area with its oven, hob, microwave, fridge with ice tray, dishwasher, and washer/dryer. Upstairs, there are two bedrooms, both of which have some reduced head-height, due to the property’s sloping ceilings, which are typical of the era. The first bedroom is a comfortable double room, while the second is a cosy twin room. The bathroom, which also a sloped ceiling has a bath and a WC.

Outside, there is a small private patio garden with bistro-style furniture, as well as a shared garden, mainly set to lawn, which has picnic tables and enjoys views over the nearby dunes. There is an outside tap, great for sandy paws. Parking for two cars.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Great location and huge potential. Bed was comfortable. Sadly small things disappointed.

Reviewed by Janet 28th June 2019

The cottage is cosy and well equipped. The beach is a bit of a walk along a busy narrow road. Adequate parking for cars but privacy is limited due to it being one of four cottages with a larger house next door. The 2nd bedroom has a low sloping ceiling so feels a bit small. No shower in cottage, but bath has a hand held shower attachment although aRead more bit cumbersome to use, also you have to climb in and out of the bath in order to shower which may be a problem if you have mobility issues.
