Overview
Cottage -
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

A great cottage tucked away in the Devon country side but within easy reach of Dartmoor and North Devon coast. A comfortable cottage with all you need for a relaxed holiday. We only stayed for a weekend but would have enjoyed a longer holiday. Justin and Mary are great hosts, providing local info etc but not over the top. Milk...

We only had a short break, but the cottage was lovely and it so peaceful there. There were a few visits from the Chickens and the cat also made an appearance. We were given Eggs and Milk on arrival which made us feel at home. Beautiful Gardens, pity we had rain but we still went on walks in the surrounding...

The setting of this cottage is ideal. While it seems far from everything, in reality it is only minutes from Dartmoor, the Lydford gorge, Brent Tor, and Tavistock. Only a bit further afield are Exmoor, Bodmin moor, Devon and Cornwall coastal walks and innumerable gardens. The cottage is meticulously kept and quite comfortable and provides something that is important to...
