Stunning Nearby Walks

Arriving at Rock Cottage

Park the car at the roofline of Rock cottage, & if you or your children have ever wondered how thatch looks up-close, you may inspect for yourself. Then, take a moment to experience the view of rolling hills leading down to the Taw Estuary, the silence broken only by the lowing cattle, gently bleating sheep or the chattering song of woodland birds, & you realise that you’re in a holiday world already. All this before you’ve even stepped inside your cosy thatched North Devon cottage retreat ...

Inside The Cottage

Rock has been beautifully renovated & furnished to create a delightful interior bristling with every contemporary gadget required to guarantee a relaxing & enjoyable holiday, from Wi-Fi to garlic crusher. The cottage sleeps 4 people in two bedrooms (1 double & 1 twin with en suite).

Made from “cob”, Rock Cottage’s 17th century two-foot-thick walls will keep you naturally cool in the summer, snug & warm in the winter. There is a storage heater in each room, with a wood-burner in the living room for very cosy winter evenings! A small basket of logs is supplied between Sept-May, & a large bag can be bought for £10 cash from the owner.
