We are delighted to announce that the restoration of this former linhay is now complete and it has been transformed into a single story cosy cabin for two, situated on the edge of the hilltop settlement of Mortehoe. This little gem of a cottage enjoys an elevated position with views across the rolling fields and is ideal for a romantic getaway.
Take a walk to explore the pretty village of Mortehoe, which has a 13th century church and a range of shop and cafes to explore as well as a local pub if you'd prefer to have a night off cooking. Venture a little further afield to Morte Pointe, once notorious for smugglers and wreckers, however now home to a seal colony, keep your eyes peeled and you may be lucky enough to see one pop out of the water.

North Devon with its outstanding coast, glorious moorland, plunging wooded valleys and remote, unchanging rural landscapes inland - has so much to offer the visitor, no matter what type of holiday you are looking for. On the coast you will find miles of sandy beaches at places like Woolacombe and Croyde, and some of the finest surf in Britain (whether you're a beginner or a pro), interspersed by long and lonely stretches of dramatic soaring cliffs and rugged headlands, with the South West Coast Path running all the way along the coast, guaranteeing some exhilarating walking . The beautiful wooded valleys and winding rivers of Exmoor National Park add a softer touch to the landscape around the fringes of the high bare moorland, whilst the lively coastal towns in the area Lynton, Ilfracombe, Barnstaple and Bideford - bring a bit of seaside sparkle. Inland, there are historic market towns and hidden villages in the lovely unspoilt valleys of the Taw and the Torridge.
