Rolling green hills and winding valleys set the scene for this quaint 18th century thatch-roofed cottage in North Devon. Original features and modern amenities come together to create a welcoming holiday home. Two bedrooms make the place ideal for families staying together, but it’s also cosy enough if you wish to stay as a couple. When it’s time to relax, you have a private hot tub and a two-person copper bathtub to choose from. The open-plan living area is the first room of the abode, where you’ll encounter a soft leather sofa in front of a log-burning stove and a dining table for enjoying a spot of cream tea. If business calls during your stay, there is a handy desk where you can set up your laptop. When you are ready for dinner, a Sonos surround sound system means you can play your favourite soundtrack while cooking up a storm in the well-appointed kitchen. Accompany your meal with a drink fixed at the honesty bar. The ground floor is complete with a comfortable double bedroom and a separate bathroom with a bath and combined shower. Upstairs, you’ll find the main bedroom, where a super-king size bed promises a soundless slumber, and an ensuite bathroom, where the freestanding bath is the perfect place to unwind after a long morning hike. The home also boasts a secluded, Mediterranean-inspired garden with a seating area for sipping your beverage of choice on a balmy afternoon. Soak your cares away in the hot tub – a wooden canopy shelters it from the elements, so you can relax among the bubbles, whatever the weather. Towels, dressing gowns and plastic glasses are provided to add to the experience. A pub, a community shop and plenty of country walks are on the doorstep, but if you’d prefer to take a day trip, Peppercombe Beach is a 40-minute drive away. Or why not explore the moorland of Exmoor National Park, reached in approximately 30 minutes by car? A 15-minute stroll takes you to Millbrook Estate, where you can take advantage of the BBQ hut, fishing lakes and private dining experiences.

  • Treetops Treehouse

    • 2 nights min stay

    The steps up to Treetops Treehouse lift you clear into the canopy and you’re suddenly alone with the peaceful breeze through the leaves, the occasional skittering squirrel and only the good kind of twitter. The temptation is to fire up the wood-burner, settle on the sofa and crack into the local welcome cider, but the rest of the treehouse is worth exploring. Upstairs you’ll find the king-size bed and in another room downstairs the huge copper bath, where you can lie back and soak up the quiet as the stress just drains away. The kitchen has everything you need to cook and there’s a barbecue outside on the deck, but if you fancy a treat then book in at the superb restaurant of The Fox & Hounds and head across the grounds for dinner. When you come back, sink into the bean bags in the secret cubby hole on the deck and watch the sun set on the fishing lake and the trees of Heywood Forest as the local train chugs past beneath you. Treetops Treehouse is set in the North Devon Biosphere Reserve, with the River Taw just below. If you want to leave the car behind, Eggesford train station is just a 5 minute walk away, and the Tarka Line runs to Barnstaple in one direction and Exeter in the other. As well as fishing on the lake and river, there’s the Tarka Trail that’ll take you on foot or by bike through charming villages and beautiful countryside via the odd homely pub. You can hit the coast for surfing, coasteering and a dip in the sea, or just spend the whole time lounging in the treehouse, sipping champagne and looking out over the pond.
