Thyme Cottage description

Inspired by the garden, this cosy hideaway offers a secret holiday bolthole to escape from the pressures of modern life, set in the stunning North Devon countryside. Views out over the garden and a patio herb garden can be enjoyed in the summer months. This semi-detached holiday property is the perfect romantic retreat, set within glorious countryside and having wonderful walks from the doorstep. Thyme Cottage adjoins the owner’s small contemporary B&B and guests are welcome to enjoy a delicious afternoon tea, packed picnic hampers and deliciously simple evening meals by arrangement. You are also welcome to pop through a secret passage to the Book Room to enjoy the woodburner in the main house, shared by the B&B guests.
