Bentwitchen Cottage authentically converted barn

Bentwitchen Cottage
1 of 19Bentwitchen Cottage
Barn -
3 Bedrooms , 4 Bathrooms , Sleeps 6
Barnstaple, Devon, England
Bentwitchen Cottage is in the small hamlet of Bentwitchen on the edge Exmoor National Park. The cottage offers you a place to relax and enjoy the peace and tranquillity of the countryside, but is close to the market towns of South Molton and Barnstaple, as well as the many coves and beaches that North Devon has to offer.

Part of a recent Barn conversion, the cottage has wooden floors, stone walls and some exposed oak beams. This upside down accommodation is designed so that the open plan sitting, dining and kitchen areas offer you enhanced views of the surrounding countryside, whilst down stairs there are 3 double en-suite bedrooms. The smallest bedroom has its own dressing room, which can also double up as a child's bedroom. Outside the Cottage has a patio area overlooking a wooded valley and gorse clad hillside.

About the neighbourhood
South Molton, the nearest town, is 6 miles away and has a local market on Thursday and a farmers’ market on Saturday. Barnstaple, North Devon’s main market town, with its famous Pannier Market and Butchers’ Row – excellent for both meat and locally caught fish, is within easy reach and offers a range of shopping facilities and other activities. The Poltimore Arms, possibly one of Exmoor’s most delightful pubs, is just up the road and is definitely Bentwtichen’s “local”.
