Melinda's Cottage description

Melinda’s Cottage is a pretty, traditional Grade II listed, North Devon fisherman’s stone built cottage. Nestled within the small peaceful village of Bucks Mills and just a short stroll away from the beach, it is the perfect choice for a family seaside holiday or a relaxing escape at any time of year. Set in the middle of three cottages, the property has its own large garden which is the perfect spot to enjoy a lazy breakfast and plan your day.
Bucks Mills is one of the most beautiful villages in North Devon and is a secluded hidden gem with pretty white washed cottages speckled along a wooded valley, at the end of a no through road.
The North Devon Coast Path crosses the village, so it’s possible to walk it in both directions and there are other delightful footpaths from the village. There is plenty for everyone to enjoy in this stunning location with swimming, fishing and exploring the many rock pools on the secluded sand and shingle beach which is just a 5-minute walk from the cottage.
A village store/post office is one mile away and nearby is Bideford which has restaurants and town amenities along with boat trips to Lundy Island, or hire a bike and explore the nearby Tarka Trail. Melinda’s Cottage is the ideal spot for touring North Devon, with many local attractions and breathtaking country and coastal walking. RHS Rosemoor Gardens, Docton Mill and Hartland Quay are well worth a visit along with many pretty fishing villages to explore including nearby Instow and Appledore. For family fun the Big Sheep and Milky Way Adventure Parks are a must. Beach ¼ mile. Shop 1 mile, pub 2 miles and restaurant 1½ miles.Ground Floor:
