Shirehorse Cottage

This charming holiday cottage is tucked away onto a courtyard setting near rural village of Chittlehampton, with views leaning out towards the countryside and wonderful Exmoor. A romantic trip for two is promised here, an idyllic place to spend some quality time, or a comfy haven for families to visit, all-year-round. A stable door opens up to an open-plan living area, where you can make yourselves right at home in front of the electric woodburner effect fire which sits in-between an exposed stone fireplace. Soft furnishings create that lovely mix of charm and modernised living, with a neat kitchen included and seating around the dining table for four people. Follow the stairway up to the next floor which introduces a cloakroom and a family bathroom comprising of both a roll-top bath, and a separate shower for that high quality finish. The two bedrooms come neatly presented, neutral yet fashionable, the king-size bedroom is brought to life by beautiful countryside views, whilst the twin set-up looks out over the courtyard. Out and about, you will be spoilt for choice of things to do in the area, there is even a lake with fishing rights available for guests to make use of, and a play area with equipment to keep the children occupied for an hour or two. Chittlehampton is your own little haven to unwind, with opportunities to take part in the many country pursuits on offer, including cycle rides on a network of tracks that take you across Exmoor and North Devon. A half hour drive from Chittlehampton leads to the amazing North Devon coast where there are many sandy beaches, to include Saunton Sands. The market town of South Molton offers farm shops, deli shops, and a honey farm; a chance to uncover the character behind this cosy part of Devon.

Two bedrooms: 1 x king-size, 1 x twin. Bathroom with roll-top bath, shower attachment, separate shower, basin and WC. First floor cloakroom with basin and WC. Open-plan sitting, kitchen and dining area with electric fire.
