A secluded cottage with woodburner, garden and views

Located minutes from Instow and Bideford, Elm Cottage is a two bedroom stone cottage sensitively modernised with a fully equipped farmhouse kitchen including a microwave and dual-fuel range. Comfortably furnished in keeping with the country atmosphere, guests will feel right at home the moment they unpack. After a day's exploring, put your feet up in the sitting room in front of the stone fireplace with cosy woodburner. Steep stairs lead up to a double bedroom and a twin bedroom (can be zipped to make a kingsize bed) and there's a modern bathroom with shower.

Shop for local delicacies in Bideford pannier market and bring them home for tea in the garden. Fresh crabs, mackerel, Exmoor ales, creamy cheese, Devon ice cream and clotted cream can all be sourced locally as part of your Devon holiday cottage experience.

Just three minutes' walk from Elm Cottage, there's a nice country pub in the quiet village of Westleigh. There's no shortage of scenic walks nearby and the coastline is on the doorstep. Instow is a pretty waterfront community with a beach and passenger ferry across the estuary to the artist haven of Appledore. Bideford is a lively town with shops, restaurants, amenities and regular sailings to Lundy Island aboard the MS Oldenburgh. Westward Ho! with four miles of golden sand and The Big Sheep attraction are ten minutes away.
