Description

A nook nestled in the North Devon countryside that’s just for two. No ordinary one-couple holiday cottage, this spacious retreat for two teases you with the temptation of its own private, indoor hot tub.

Exmoor excess

Rarely does a holiday cottage for two presents so much space inside and out. You’ll have space to spread out and to soak up the glorious views of the Exmoor countryside, literally from the babbling bubbles of your private hot tub. All on one level and skirting the edges of Exmoor National Park, Crows Nest is rather unique. Reached by a private single track driveway, you’ll barely believe your eyes at its elevated position and its enviable views. It’s an idyllic writer’s retreat, the perfect place to switch off from everyday life, and a gem of a spot for walking, horse riding, cycling and fishing.

The cottage welcomes you with its vast glass doors and you’ll barely want to close when the weather is fine. There are views from every angle through tall picture windows that pour in the light and call you out into the open. The open plan living space with its high quality kitchen is perfect for rustling up a little supper from the day’s catch or your haul of local produce from nearby Bampton. All you need is your preferred tipple and your swimwear for a relaxing evening in the hot tub.

For days out and about in Devon or on Exmoor you’ll rarely be better placed. It’s just over a mile’s wander to the village pub in the pretty hamlet of Cove. After a day’s walking, make your way to your private terrace for a well earned gin and tonic while you savour the view and your stunning immediate surroundings. You’re world away from everything here. Set in the grounds of the owner’s farm there are four more cottages on the land should you want to return with your friends and share that view.

Bedrooms and bathrooms

The bedroom here has couples in mind with its sumptuous kingsize bed and ample storage, even if you’re staying a while. The adjacent shower room is beautifully presented.

Practicalities

Please note this cottage is for adults only.

Reviews

The holiday property was in a remote and isolated area, but this provided a nice peaceful atmosphere from the usual buzz of the city. It was cosy and provided plenty of room for 2 guests. It kept us warm in the cold weather, with the added pleasure of an indoor hot tub located outside of the main cottage. Overall, a really relaxing stay and would definitely recommend for a getaway.

Miss Georgina R,

Perfect holiday destination

Mrs Karen O,

Mr Bruce M,

great location and facilities , great place to spend a week

Mr John P,

The Crows Nest is an absolute gem, one of the nicest properties we have stayed in for sure - of such high quality, cleanliness and comfort. The owners have thought of everything, it really was a wonderful place to stay - the kitchen (and every item within) was immaculate, as was the whole property. The hot tub out in its own little summerhouse with a view over the valley - just perfect. A lovely comfy sofa and big TV. Just perfect! Loved it.

Ms Wendy L,

The holiday property was first class. Everything was up to a very high standard. Very spacious and clean, inside and outside the property. The private hot tub in the summer house adjacent to the cottage was great. We used it each day of our stay. The proprietor gave us a warm welcome on arrival and explained everything we needed to know about the facilities and the surrounding roads/area. The welcome pack we received was a nice touch too. All in all, a terrific stay.

Mr John S,

Beautiful cottage, lovely location and a very nice welcome from the owner Aubrey. Hot tub was very good at the end of the day. Will be very happy to visit again as the location and surrounding area are stunning.

Mr David S,

Lovely cottage with great views. Hot tub was a nice touch

Mr Amandeep L,

One of the best cottages we have ever stayed in, could not find fault with anything.

Mr Richard J,

Very good, nice and peaceful, hot tub was great.

Mr B C,

Aubrey and family are a delight, lovely cream tea to welcome us. The cottage is a warm and cosy place to come back to after a day out (We visited in November) plus the hot tub is a nice addition too.

Mr Kevin G,

Wonderful cottage, spotlessly clean and everything anyone could possibly want. If only we could pick up the cottage and move it nearer the coast it would be 100% perfect.

Mrs L A,

One of the best cottages we have stayed in, had the wow factor as soon as the door was opened

Mrs Emma F,

Property excellent.

Mrs Christine P,

This is an amazing property! Can’t wait to holiday in Devon again this time with the children
