Step out of the car and admire the beautiful countryside views that surround The Garden Cottage, located near Great Torrington in Devon. This wonderful retreat for two is not only perfect for romantic weekends away but also for relaxing holidays in Devon. Located in the pretty hamlet of Kingscott, the cottage is the perfect base when exploring the surrounding area. The North Devon coastline, home to stunning golden beaches and pretty seaside villages, is less than a 30 minute drive, and Exmoor, Dartmoor, Somerset and Cornwall are all within an hour, so there are plenty of opportunities to experience memorable days out. Couples can also discover the wonders of RHS Rosemoor Gardens, which is only a few miles away. This gorgeous garden covers 65 acres and has lots to offer its visitors, including a restaurant and plant shop.
The lovely Garden Cottage has been beautifully designed with great attention paid to detail and style. This stunning home away from home has effortlessly combined period charm with a modern contemporary twist to make it a true gem in the Devon countryside. All the rooms are tastefully decorated with white walls, elegant furniture and a dash of bright colours in the soft furnishings, which give the cottage a wonderful magical feel. The living area is perfect for relaxed evenings, and romantic meals prepared in the well-equipped kitchen can be enjoyed at the dining table. At night snuggle down in the king-size bed in the large and spacious bedroom and admire the peace and tranquillity that surrounds the cottage.
Land and coastal walks are just some of the many outdoor activities to be enjoyed when staying at The Garden Cottage. Others include cycling along the Tarka Trail, a former railway line, horse riding along the moor or beach and teeing off on some of the country's most beautiful golf courses.
Two miles from the cottage is one of the best pubs in the area, where you can enjoy really good food in a wonderful atmosphere. The New Inn was recently voted a finalist in the Best Gastro Pub of the Year for Devon Life, second best pub in the North Devon Food & Drink awards and was highly commended in the North Devon Journal’s Pub of the Year.
If relaxation is what you are looking for then you won't need to go any further than the cottage's garden. With its pretty patio and level lawn, it is the perfect place to lie back on one of the sun-loungers and listen to the birds singing in the trees.
The Garden Cottage is available to rent from early spring through to the end of November and it would love to share its serene setting and enchanting atmosphere with you. On arrival you will discover fresh flowers in every room and a delicious cream tea complete with scones, jam and traditional clotted cream, so all you need to do is sit back and relax.
