|Rock Cottage is a delightful chocolate box cottage tucked into a North Devon hillside with views across green rolling hills, where the loudest noise is likely to be birdsong or the occasional bleat of a sheep across the valley.
Rock sleeps 4 people in two bedrooms (1 double and 1 twin). Built in the 17th Century, Rock Cottage’s two-foot-thick ‘cob’ walls will keep you naturally cool in the summer, snug and warm in the winter. In addition each room has a storage heater and a wood burner in the living room to guarantee lovely cosy winter evenings!
The cottage is fabulously equipped for all needs.
Facilities inside include free Wi-Fi, Digital TV’s with DVD (living room and main bedroom), DAB tuner/ CD player (living room only), fridge/ freezer, washer/ dryer, AEG hotplate with self-cleaning twin-oven with grill, LG microwave oven, Kenwood kettle and toaster, Habitat and Portmeirion (oven-to-) tableware and mugs, plenty of stainless steel saucepans, knives and cooking utensils. For days out, there are even vacuum flasks and picnic ware.
The oak beamed lounge contains a large inglenook fireplace with woodburner and still contains its original bread oven.
A Laura Ashley sofa and traditional wingback chairs offers plenty of seating from which to relax and watch TV (Freeview), listen to music (i-Pod port on Hi-Fi) or rediscover the delights of jigsaws and boardgames.
Upstairs there are two bedrooms – each with their own staircase – and a newly installed family bathroom with full-sized bath with overhead shower. Both bedrooms have a door or stair gate at the top of the stairs for child safety. The master bedroom has a large double bed. The twin bedroom has a small en suite facility with sink and WC. The twin beds can be put together if preferred as a second double room.
Rock has a small terrace garden with lovely outdoor seating areas, the lower patio having all weather wooden dining table, chairs and parasols, with small but steep path leading to a separate decking area to allow you to get the best of the views across the valley. A second patio with rock garden, border, arbour and chairs, steps separates the cottage from the off road parking space large enough for 2 cars.
