Tucked in the midst of West Buckland, a coastal hamlet just under a mile from the golden sandy beaches of Bantham, is Old Farm, a perfect example of beautiful Devon thatch, the essence of charm with centuries of character, high beamed ceilings, low gothic doorways and original features. All has been sympathetically modernised to offer every home comfort, from Smart television, bespoke locally crafted oak furniture, comfy beds and attractive soft furnishings to ipod connection and wood burner. Next to the cottage is “Tidley Cot” – providing a separate 4th Bedroom with kitchenette WC and shower, a super hideaway for teens or couples who relish a retreat just a few feet away from the main house. If you had pictured a quintessential thatched holiday cottage with today's contemporary comforts and style then this is the one, with separate patio and parking, a super base from which to spend your time in South Devon.
This is a fabulous little cottage in a beautiful part of the world. A really cosy home from home, at any time of the year.
