Sitting in its own secluded + very beautiful garden, here Verbena Cottage basks in the evening sun.
Verbena Cottage is situated in 18 acres of stunning gardens and woodland. Fancy a row on the lake?
Here's the relaxing lounge area with 42inch Freeview TV, wood burning stove and comfy seating for 4.
A luxury kitchen and a dining table for four make this a great place to eat.
The luxury kitchen is very well equipped with all mod cons; including granite worktops.
The smart kitchen has open views down to the lake.
The spacious and comfy bedroom has a TV and a luxury, super kingsize bed.
A great place to spend a relaxing Sunday morning.
Although ultra-modern, little touches add interest. Another window with a view to the lake.
The modern ensuite bathroom has a full size bath and a luxurious walk-in shower.
For those who prefer a nice hot soak, as well as shower the en-suite is equipped with a bath.
The view back from the en-suite bathroom to the bedroom.
Ready for a bottle of wine? The patio is a great place to watch the sun go down over the lake.
The summer house by the lake. One guest called it 'a magic place'.
You're welcome to use the summer house for a meal by the lake, or to relax and read a book.
The seat by the lake. A wonderful relaxing place to read the newspaper or a book.
The huge gardens have far-reaching vistas and drifts of plants. Don't forget your camera!
Verbena Cottage has its own private garden on three sides.
A peacock butterfly alights on a flower to drink the nectar.
In the meadow, wild orchids appear every year; though you'll need to hunt them out.
In autumn, a majestic white stag stands in a field which forms part of the 18 acres.
In a corner of the lake there's a hide. If you're lucky you might see a busy kingfisher.
A network of interesting woodland paths twist and turn through the trees around the 18 acres.
Carp bask in the warm surface water of the lake on a summer afternoon.
A woodland path wends its way around the lake, here seen in the winter sun.
The entrance to Lower Winsford Farm, where you'll find Verbena Cottage. Parking is straight ahead.

Had a great week at Verbena Cottage, upon arrival was shown around by owner John. Cottage was very clean and was far better than any online picture could show. Plenty to do and see in the Devon & Cornwall area. Cottage had it's own private garden and the facilities were superb, highly recommended for any couple looking for a relaxing week away in comfortable surroundings. Many thanks Anne & John.

“Bliss”
Reviewed 12 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Verbena cottage is the perfect place to stay if u want to completely relax and get away from it all. The surrounding gardens and lake are beautiful and great for an early evening stroll just as the sun is going down . The inside of the cottage is spotless and very comfortable . The blueberry cake we had on arrival was delicious. Ann and John the owners have really created the perfect getaway destination. We will be back .

Reviewed 12 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

The cottage is finished to a very high standard. Everything from the sauna shower to the huge super king size bed, it's perfect. We really enjoyed our stay.
Credit to the owners. Located within driving distance to Dartmoor, Bude and Padstow.

“The Perfect Cottage”
Reviewed 23 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

What a fantastic place this is. My wife and I just got married and we went here on our honeymoon with our 3 month old baby. We had a fantastic time. On arrival we were greeted with a bottle of Presseco and home baked cake which was a lovely touch. The cottage itself is in a beautiful location with amazing views. The standard of the cottage was excellent and it ticked all the boxes for us. Although it is a remote location its amenities were excellent and wi-fi was very good. Although its adjoined to a farm house we felt like we had total privacy. Location wise it was great and within a short drive to most things, for example we drove to the Eden Project within an hour. I couldn't recommend this cottage highly enough. We have fond memories of the place now and will definitely consider returning to Devon in the future and just hope any place we stay at lives up to this high standard. All-in-all we loved it.
