Woody Bay Cottage

Woody Bay Cottage is in a peaceful, secluded position at the end of a private road passing through the National Trust Woody Bay Estate, with a path to the beach.  It originally consisted of two cottages, believed to have been built for the lime burners who worked the kilns above the beach.

The cottage is about 4 miles from Lynton which has shops, small restaurants, cafes, a small cinema and the funicular railway to Lynmouth. The Fox and Goose pub in Parracombe and Hunters' Inn in at Heddon Valley, both also about 4 miles from the cottage, serve excellent meals. The stunningly beautiful surrounding Exmoor National Park countryside is excellent for riding, walking and sea and river fishing, and includes the wide, sandy surfing beaches at Woolacombe and Croyde to the west. The project to restore the Lynton & Barnstaple Railway is exciting: based at Woody Bay Station, 2 miles from the cottage.  

The five bedrooms are accessed by quite steep staircases, with some low thresholds. Spacious double with washbasin and staircase; down to door to front terrace; further double bedded and twin, leading to single with cot. A further single room with TV/DVD is on the ground floor, three steps up from living room. First floor bathroom/wc with electric shower, and a further separate wc with washbasin.

On the ground floor, up three steps from ground floor bedroom level is the second bathroom, with bath and hand shower attachment, with washing machine and tumble dryer. Cosy living room with low ceiling (6' 6"), open fire in stone fireplace, TV/DVD and comfy seating for 6.

Separate dining room with low ceiling, dining table seating 8, woodburning stove and oak furniture. Fully fitted kitchen with electric fan oven, grill and hob, microwave, large fridge/freezer and dishwasher. Good-sized mature gardens, including small lawn, stone and paved terraces, attractive borders and garden furniture. Wooded hillsides to the rear and side. Ample parking.
