Holiday Rental House
Downe Cottages provide a rare combination of private luxury cottages with an excellent leisure facility attached (spacious gym and spa plus a reading room available from 6.00 a.m. to 10.00 p.m. each day) located in the heart of the North Devon Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Whatever the weather it is possible to thoroughly enjoy your visit to North Devon with the combination of a warm and spacious cottage and the extensive leisure facilities. This cottage is an excellent two bedroom holiday cottage on one level. Jasmine Cottage was an old thrashing barn with walls dating from the 18th Century; each room has high vaulted ceilings which gives it more of a chapel look than a barn.

Whatever the weather it is possible to thoroughly enjoy your visit to North Devon with the combination of a warm and spacious cottage and the extensive leisure facilities. This cottage is an excellent two bedroom holiday cottage on one level. Jasmine Cottage was an old thrashing barn with walls dating from the 18th Century; each room has high vaulted ceilings which gives it more of a chapel look than a barn. This cottage has fine views across rolling countryside to the Atlantic Ocean with garden table and chairs looking West over the Atlantic and is an ideal spot to watch our beautiful sunsets and clear starry skies. The open plan living and kitchen area has two 2-seater sofas, a 32' digital television with D.V.D. player, an antique pine table with four dining chairs and a well equipped kitchen and includes a dishwasher, fridge/freezer, microwave, oven and washer/dryer. The main bedroom has a double bed (5'6') and an en-suite shower room, the second bedroom has two single beds (3') and an en-suite shower room. Both bedrooms have two bedside tables, chest of drawers and a three quarter length mirror hung on the wall. • Central heating in all rooms • Communal gardens • Includes all consumables • Garage parking • Bathrobes and slippers provided for adults Gym & Spa Facilities at Done The Gym The Gym is open from 6.00 a.m. to 10.00 p.m. each day. It is beautifully located in the Atlantic Room and has views across fields out to Hartland Point and Lundy Island beyond. (Lundy Island is where the Atlantic meets the Bristol Channel.) The gym is spacious, light and airy and equipped with aerobic equipment, free weights, an ab trainer, an exercise bench and exercise mats. All of the aerobic equipment is either Life Fitness equipment (including a treadmill, a cross trainer, a stepper, an upright cycle and a recumbent cycle) or Concept 11 equipment (a rower). The gym is accessed through the Reading Room in the Conservatory. There is a raised area here overlooking the gym equipment with a seating for the less energetic to sit and admire their dynamic partners! The Atlantic Room also houses a library and dvd collection for our guests to use. French windows from the Gym lead out to a raised patio area with tables and chairs looking out to Lundy Island - another opportunity to enjoy the wonderful surroundings. The Spa The Spa consists of a spa bath (with seats for eight adults), a steam room (with seats for seven adults) and a sauna. The Spa is open from 6.a.m. to 10 p.m. each evening (the spa bath is available from 6 p.m.) . Gym Sweat Towels and Bath Towels for the Spa are provided and the cost of both Gym and Spa are included in the cottage rental.

Interaction with guests
When we created Downe Cottages our objective was to provide the holiday accommodation that we would have enjoyed. We are very demanding visitors when we stay in hotels or cottages and we insisted that our cottages be: Immaculately clean. Warm whatever the weather. Spacious (a cottage cannot be luxurious without being spacious). Very well equipped so that our visitors can come bringing only their clothes, their food and themselves. Beautiful to look at both internally and externally. With well maintained, spacious grounds We welcome visitors to the cottage and we are on hand to resolve any problem that might occur. Everything in our cottages works as it is intended to work.

This was a last minute booking due to cancellation of flight to France and we couldn't have found a better place to spend a few restful days! The travel directions and advice on where to food shop on the way were so helpful. Really warm...More

About the neighbourhood
Set on the unspoilt Hartland Peninsula in magical North Devon, Jasmine looks West out over the Atlantic and North up to Lundy Island. It is set amid the beautiful gardens of Downe Cottages and is part of a courtyard of listed cottages.
How to get there
We provide detailed directions when we confirm the booking. The directions include details of the supermarkets visitors pass in the last half hour of the journey and suggest places to stop and eat on the journey down. We believe the journey down to Downe should be part of the holiday and our recommendations of places to eat is part of this approach.
