Morris's Nook

Ideal for couples to snuggle up in front of the cosy wood burner after a day exploring this wonderful and picturesque area.. Tucked in the corner overlooking the courtyard, Morris’s Nook is everything a cosy hideaway should be. Comfortably furnished and with the added bonus of a wood burner, this is the perfect destination holiday getaway, or to use as a great base whilst enjoying all Devon has to offer. Located within the courtyard of the owner’s home on the edge of the village of Exbourne. This semi-detached cottage, which forms part of the historic courtyard, is within walking distance of the local pub and community shop. Nearby Okehampton has a wider range of shops and local amenities and is also the gateway to the beautiful Dartmoor National Park.
Head towards Barnstaple where you have access to some of the best beaches in the country, including Woolacombe and Saunton. The nearest beach at Instow is ideal for children or just a great place to walk off life’s stresses and then enjoy a meal or drink at one of the pubs and restaurants along the front. The town of Barnstaple has most amenities you may require, as well as a busy high street, and the market and Butchers Row are well worth a visit. There are numerous places of interest close by including the R.H.S gardens at Rosemoor, Dartington Crystal and the historic fishing village at Clovelly. National Trust properties can be found at Arlington, Castle Drogo and Knightshayes Court. For the younger ones, a visit to the Big Sheep or The Milky Way is good option. There is walking on Dartmoor, Exmoor and the South West Coast Path or hire a bike and cycle the Tarka Trail. Golf is also available locally. Beach 27 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant 500 yards..
