The Thornes: characterful cottage on edge of Exmoor in stunning countryside

Located in: Barnstaple »
Want peace and quiet but with easy access to magnificent beaches and remote moorland? Want to sit out, eat alfresco, listen to evening birdsong, watch for owls and bats and wonder at the dark starry skies above? Want to discover good places to eat out and the local fresh farm produce and yesteryear charm of the pannier market in Barnstaple? Want to visit the coastal villages of Clovelly, Appledore and Lynmouth or discover the Valley of the Rocks, Porlock Weir or Lorna Doone country? Enjoy surfing, swimming, cycling, horse-riding, walking or just want to chill out? Then come here!
This detached eighteenth century cottage has 3 bedrooms and is situated in quiet countryside on the edge of Exmoor National Park. It is just a 10 minute drive from the seaside village of Combe Martin and 30 minutes from the beautiful long sandy beaches of Woolacombe, Saunton and Croyde. The South West coastal footpath passes 5 minutes away while in the other direction lies Exmoor with its hills, wooded valleys, dramatic cliffs and winding rivers leading into the heart of the moor. This is a delightful rural retreat in easy reach of well-renowned sandy beaches for surfing and swimming as well as exhilarating Exmoor for walks, wildlife and cycling. Well equipped and full of character inside and out and set in a delightful garden with views over pretty countryside.
The house is suitable for a family or friends sharing, though please note that bedroom 3 is accessed through bedroom 2 and there are 2 double beds and 2 singles. No pets though I’m afraid because of the nearby stock.
Through a communal gate but in it's own garden is a small holiday let sleeping 2.
