Gorwell House Beach Cottage description

Holiday home
Gorwell House is a 200-year-old detached cottage in an elevated south-facing position along a quiet lane in Combe Martin, North Devon and can sleep seven people. The cottage has two double bedrooms, a twin bedroom, a single bedroom, a bathroom, a separate WC, a kitchen, a utility, and two sitting rooms, one with a woodburner. Outside there is off road parking for two cars, an external building with full-size table football and seating for four people and a private patio garden with lawn, decked areas and furniture. Gorwell House is a lovely base for your holiday in Devon.

Located on the border between Exmoor National Park and the North Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, is the picturesque settlement of Combe Martin. This little seaside resort, with a wide variety of amenities, is a great attraction for locals and visitors, and is home to a very popular beach. Lynton and Lynmouth, Woolacombe, Croyde Bay, Saunton Sands, Ilfracombe and Barnstaple are all within easy reach. There are also numerous National Trust properties and gardens close by, offering unique insights into local history. Woolacombe beach is close by and is an excellent place for surfing, whilst the South West coastal path passes within a mile for those who love rambling.

Devon, with its quiet country lanes, patchwork of lush green fields and sleepy villages is not to be missed. Stately home lovers will be spoiled and why not finish with a scrumptious Devonshire cream tea?

A very lovely house near the little beach of Combe Martin. The sitting room in the house is very comfortable and cosy - especially on rainy days when you light a fire. The kitchen is fully equipped and typically British. We loved every day there.

The location and space of the cottage was ideal. The place was very comfortable and well equipped throughout. The fire is a great feature and having a large dinner table to sit around and share meals was excellent.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and there were lots of little thoughtful touches that made it more special

Location of the cottage was perfect for touring around the area. Cottage was comfortable and the log fire in the evening was perfect. Combe Martin is small but the walk up Hangman is great. Not for the faint hearted but once on the top the views are special and you can walk for hours. Kayaking in the small bay is very safe and even better at sunset. Prefer to stay in Combe Martin as less of a tourist trap. Local people very friendly and helpful.

Being so close to so many amazing beaches. The range of games/books/DVD's for rainy days.

The cottage was very quaint and very well looked after. Felt like we were staying in a piece of Devon history. The garden was also really lovely and our two year old loved exploring it. We also liked the big kitchen that was well appointed and the rooms upstairs were nicely furnished. We also loved the little villages in the area and had a brilliant time on Woolacombe beach.

Large, clean, warm house, well stocked with lots of information and things to do. Quiet location, yet close to pubs and other amenities. Great for walking, beaches and lots of attractions.

Lovely house with 4 decent sized bedrooms. Kitchen is equipped with everything you could need and garden is very big and lovely patio area. We had a toddler (16 months) with us and they provided a highchair and cot which was a life saver! Would definitely return

We had a lovely family holiday during Easter week, Gorwell House has a cosy 'Home from Home' feel, with a lovely woodburner for chilly nights, we had plenty of space for all six in our family and a lovely welcome of tea, biscuits and a bottle of wine on arrival, even the Easter Bunny came and lots of fun was had searching for eggs in the lovely gardens. Very good location for lovely walks, beaches and would highly recommend Watermouth Castle, lovely for children of all ages, theme park included. Perfect family holiday.

Had a wonderful trip to Somerset, when we we normally head to Dorset and Hampshire. This property is perfectly positioned for walking, lovely beaches and sightseeing in the historical villages but above all, you can just relax in the lovely garden and have a great bbq. You will have to go along way to better this rental spot. The trip went so well, I was moved to pop the question and she said yes - Can't be bad then!
