    Property description
    Rental Home – 
    1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 2
    Ostler's Cottage is the perfect retreat for couples wishing to be 'far from the madding crowd'. Found down an unmade lane, Ostler's Cottage is a modern eco 'barn conversion'—with character—based within a converted stone stable block that once served a nearby stately home. With underfloor heating, heat-recovery ventilation, solar electricity and hot water, you'll be warm and cosy in this very private, quiet and beautifully-appointed cottage. Note there are no 'hidden extras': the price is all-inclusive.

    Downstairs is a well-equipped open plan kitchen area with a fridge + freezing compartment, a gas hob, built in electric oven, a dish washer, washing machine and a microwave. There's a dining table for 4. The comfortable lounge area has seating for 4,...

Had a wonderful Christmas break. John and Anne made us very welcome with home made mince pies, flowers, chocolates and even a decorated Christmas tree. The cottage is extremely clean and well laid out. The kitchen has most things you need. We were able to easily cook a full Christmas dinner with no problems, particularly as there's a double oven.... more

Met by the owners who showed us around the cottage and made us feel very welcome. Cake was a very nice touch. The accomodation was absolutely pristine - couldn't fault it. The cottage itself is off the beaten track and very quiet and peaceful but is in a great location to explore the North Devon and Cornwall coasts. We both... more

We arrived at the cottage to be welcomed by John & Anne who explained all we needed to know. As we had taken our bikes John recommended a route nearby and gave us a map to use. The cottage was everything we was hoping for being a nice size for two people. It even had a super king size bed...
