Pipistrelle description

Nestled within the heart of the glorious Devon Ruby countryside, yet just 15 miles from the breathtaking North Cornish coast with many dog friendly beaches, Pipistrelle is the perfect holiday choice for couples and friends wanting to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life. This semi-detached, single-storey cottage, adjacent to the owners’ home, has a spacious living/dining room, with a cosy woodburner for those cooler evenings. A couple of steps lead down into a sun room, ideal to enjoy a morning cuppa and plan your day. Guests are free to enjoy the owners’ 25 acres of land and relax beside the stream on this working sheep farm. There are many walks from the doorstep including the footpath which takes you into Ashwater village with its popular aptly named Village Inn.
