2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 6
Bratton Clovelly, Devon, England
Great Burrow Cottage (Sunday Times "50 Coolest Cottages in Britain and Ireland") is a detached former Linhay found in the heart of undulating West Devon countryside, in the grounds of Grade II listed Great Burrow Farmhouse. It has stunning uninterrupted views of Dartmoor. French doors lead to a private patio and large tranquil gardens with wildlife ponds, free-range chickens, a beautiful cob and stone barn, ancient oak trees and sweeping views of Dartmoor's wild northern tors. The breathtaking North Cornwall coast is only 30mins away ( surfing, Bude sea-pool, miles of sandy beaches). A heat exchange system provides constant hot water with underfloor heating that keeps the cottage really cosy and a woodburner too for that added snug feel. The contemporary bathroom has a slate floor and large bath with a deluge shower above.... Read more

We had an absolutely fantastic holiday at Great Burrow Cottage at the end of June/early July. Mary and Justin were really welcoming, offering us a delicious home made cream tea on arrival. They were always happy to help with anything we needed, but we were also absolutely left to ourselves to relax and enjoy the cottage for the week. It...

We had a wonderful week at Great Burrow Cottage. It's very quiet and peaceful but there's plenty of excitement on the doorstep (Dartmoor, the Granite Way cycle path, watersports etc). The cottage is well appointed and tastefully furnished with the sort of things you want on holiday (comfortable beds, a big bath, good kitchen). The garden is beautifully wild and...
