This quaint, characterful cottage was earmarked during the Second World War to be a keeping place for air raid victims. Thankfully it was never needed and is today a charming, cosy cottage perfect for an intimate escape. Set alongside the meandering River Yeo on the edge of the Arlington estate, the cottage is tucked along a narrow Devonian lane in the hamlet of Loxhore. The cottage garden gives views of the Arlington parkland, where Red deer can often be spotted in the autumn. A gently inclining three mile stroll through woodland will get you to Arlington Court.
The cottage is just six miles from Barnstaple with its historic and renowned pannier market which opens six days a week. For those seeking local produce, there are quality farm shops within easy reach of the cottage selling home reared meat and home grown produce.
The perfect way to explore this beautiful coastline is by bike, along the Tarka Trail that uses the old railways of North Devon and offers over 30 miles of traffic free cycling.
Excellent fly fishing at Bratton Fishery is just 2 miles away.
Heating: Oil filled radiators included.
Garden: There is an upper level garden for the washing line and a small grassed area.
Parking: There is level parking right outside the door. Although there is ample room for parking and turning, please note that the riverbank falls steeply away at the edge of the garden.
Offers: Free access to Arlington Court during opening hours.
For any 2 night starting on a Friday, or 3 night starting on a Thursday, guests can benefit from a late Sunday departure time of 6pm, at no extra charge.
Logs/Charcoal: Pre-order an unlimited supply of the Estate's seasoned logs for £25 per week or £5 per night. We also offer an Fire Starter Kit consisting of eco kindling and firelighters for £6.50
Due to the proximity of the River Yeo we feel this cottage is unsuitable for children.
