Moor Lane Cottage is an attractive detached home tucked away from the hustle and bustle in the peaceful hamlet of Nethercott, just a few minutes drive from Braunton.
It is a Grade II listed property with exposed beams, former entrance doorway still visible in the spacious and comfortable lounge and the cloam bread oven beside the inglenook fireplace, which now has a gas stove for instant heat all year round. There is a separate dining area for leisurely family meals although there are no dividing doors between the reception rooms adding an airy feel to the property. The up to date kitchen is fully equipped and the back door leads to an outside dining area for warm summer nights. There are two lovely bedrooms on the first floor, both with built in wardrobes. The bathroom is on the ground floor. The house is a cosy retreat at the end of a fun-filled day exploring North Devon. There are lawned gardens front and back.
Nearby Braunton has a variety of restaurants, pubs, cafes and shops. It is also home to the Braunton and District Museum, the Braunton Countryside Centre and the Museum of British Surfing. At the heart of what is said to be England's most biodiverse parish, Braunton Burrows is abundant with richly varied wildlife. First-time visitors to the Burrows are amazed by the scale of the sand dunes that gives them their name. The Tarka Trail, a footpath and cycle trail built along the route of the old railway line, runs through Braunton. A short drive south is the market town of Barnstaple, which is the commericial and agricultural centre of the county. It is a charming place that comfortably blends a handsome past with an energetic, present-day buzz. It has a mix of cutting-edge retail outlets, long-established family owned stores and little boutiques. A short drive east takes you to Exmoor National Park, which has the tallest tree in England, the highest cliffs in England, almost 250 species of bird and over 1,000 different flowering plants and grasses

A wonderful week in a beautiful area, a real break from the fast paced world. Our original holiday cottage let us down and we're so glad we stumbled upon this little gem! Spotlessly clean and 2 lovely hosts! Thank you for a great week!
We have stayed in this cottage many times and the standard of all the above have always been excellent.
We have enjoyed a lovely week at the cottage. The warm welcome from Eileen and Fred, the welcome gifts and amazing cleanliness all added to the experience. Highlights of our week were the aqua park near Clovelly, stand up paddle boarding at Watermouth Cove, cycling on the Tarka Trail and meals at 'At One' and 'SQ' in Braunton.
We're no strangers to this area but are delighted to have found this super spot. Great week. Thank you!
Fred and Eileen thank you once again for the use of this lovely cottage. It was our second visit and a bit colder and wetter than the last time, but we therefore saw some new places including Arlington Court, The Milky Way and Clovelly. Another great holiday.
