This 18th century thatched cottage hideaway is an intoxicating mix of the old and new where 21st century luxuries are artfully combined with original features to create a stunning place to stay. Step through the heavy wooden doorway into a sumptuous interior stuffed full of character with ancient wooden beams, log wood burner, slate floors and thick walls. Enjoy discovering the many fabulous additions such as the beautiful copper bath big enough for two, the large comfy beds, the designer kitchen, the 3D LCD TV with 4K and state of the art Bose surround sound system with Sonos and Spotify throughout the cottage, the luxurious beachcomber hot tub in the yard and so much more…
Deep in the picturesque North Devon countryside the cottage is set in the quiet and pretty rural village of High Bickington. Surrounded by rolling green hills and steep river valleys this ancient village dates back to Saxon times and has 2 Inns (one nearby), a post office that sells basic essentials, and a golf course. Within easy driving distance of both Exmoor and Dartmoor, and just 30 minutes from the rugged North Devon coastline there is plenty to explore.
