Kittiwake Cottage

Nestled in the quiet back lanes of Braunton in North Devon is the quaint two bedroom barn conversion, Kittiwake Cottage. This immaculately decorated and well-equipped cottage has recently been fully refurbished to a very high standard to guarantee its guests enjoy a comfortable and relaxing break in this stunning area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

The high-spec barn conversion comfortably accommodates up to four in two bedrooms, a good sized double with French style bed, and a flexible double/twin with handy zip and link beds. Both bedrooms have wonderful en-suite bathrooms that feature fired earth tiles and antique washstands.

Downstairs in the light and spacious cottage is a large open plan living area that has a gorgeous lounge with comfy sofa and armchair, as well as double doors opening out onto a Juliette balcony. There is also a well-equipped kitchen complete with integrated appliances and a Nespresso coffee machine, and finally, a dining table suitable for all occasions.

Kittiwake has been beautifully decorated throughout in tasteful shades of blue, effortlessly complimenting the cottage's contemporary appearance and stylish furniture.

Outside, guests can take advantage of almost an acre of grounds featuring an apple orchard, a courtyard terrace and an abundance of secluded places to enjoy a picnic or play games. Walk to the garden's boundary and you will soon discover the village's small river.

Kittiwake Cottage is ideally located for exploring the North Devon coast. Braunton itself is a hive of activity, with various small shops to browse in and several restaurants to enjoy evening meals.

Only a five minute drive from the cottage are two of the county's best loved beaches. Croyde and Saunton are perfect for enjoying a number of popular water sports, sandcastle building and complete relaxation on miles of golden sands.

The North Devon coast surrounding Braunton is also ideal for experiencing exhilarating headland, beach or moorland walks. The famous Braunton Burrows, the largest sand dune system in England, is only a short walk from the cottage and great for enjoying a local stroll along the estuary.

Golf at the championship standard Saunton Sands course, and horse riding at Shelly's in Chivenor near Barnstaple are also easily accessible and great alternative ways to experience the beauty of North Devon.

Cyclists will love the area surrounding Braunton with the Tarka Trail leading to Barnstaple easily accessible from the village, and providing a car free path, perfect for beginners and families with young children. In its entirety, the trail covers more than 163 miles, running in a figure-of-eight and passing through villages such as Lynmouth and Ilfracombe. For the more experienced cyclist the country lanes around the pretty village of Georgeham are ideal, and can be combined with a visit to two of North Devon's best pubs, The Rock Inn and The Kings Arms.

Nearby family friendly attractions include The Big Sheep, Watermouth Castle, Cascades and Exmoor Zoo. There are also several National Trust estates, colourful gardens and much, much more to discover when staying at Kittiwake Cottage.
