Chris & Sylvia
Cosy cottage in a rural setting on the edge of Woolsery village - perfect for couples snuggling up together or for families visiting beaches and local attractions. Each reservation is managed with care and attention to the needs of the guests. It is helpful to know the age(s) of children at the time of booking. Easy reach of A39 Atlantic Highway for access to Clovelly Village, North Devon Wakeboarding, Milky Way Adventure Park, RHS Rosemoor, Croyde and Bude surfing beaches, Exmoor and Dartmoor National Parks. Great for summer holidays or winter breaks. Ideally situated for exploring AONB North Devon Coast. NO PETS - We guarantee an ALLERGY FREE environment
My name is Sylvie I'm delighted to share my lovely little country cottage with those holidaying in this stunning area of North Devon. My husband Chris and I have 20yrs experience of running a B&B, and enjoy ensuring guests achieve the best holiday experience depending on their individual interests. We are happy to share our wealth of local knowledge of the area with visitors when the opportunity arises. You will find the cottage is spotlessly clean with a warm welcome feel from the moment you enter. Each booking is carefully managed to suit the individual needs of our guests, whether setting up the travel cot, highchair and stair gate for tinies, preparations for a family celebration or providing specific information for sporting activities in the area. From the first point of booking, we are available to help you complete your preparations before leaving home, leaving maximum time for fun and adventure while here in Devon! We live nearby and hope to meet you at some point. Available by phone should you have any questions during your stay.
Within walking distance of Mad Hatters Restaurant just around the corner at Merry Harriers Garden Centre serving great food with FREE ENTRY to the famous Gnome Reserve! Woolsery is home to the much sought after Farmers Arms, a new kind of traditional Devon pub, boasting plot to plate eating and locally sourced beers. A 5min car drive away is the Milky Way Adventure Park and a great Watersports Centre and North Devon Wake Park. Add another 5mins in the car and you will find the fabulously enchanting fishing village of Clovelly. With its cobbled streets (no cars allowed) and quaint cottages built into the cliff side.
