Crooked Lake Holiday Cottage

Idyllic Devon cottage, nestling in tranquil countryside

Tucked away in the heart of the beautiful North Devon countryside is Crooked Lake, a secluded three-bedroom, 17th century stone cottage. This character holiday home, sleeping up to five is everything you could hope for in a quiet Devon rural retreat, but remains within easy reach of the bustling historic market town of Bideford and the glorious North Devon coast, renowned for its stretches of golden sands and clean waves.

The delightful three-bedroom traditional cottage set just outside the village of Parkham on the Bideford-Bradworthy road has a wonderful blend of period charm and modern-day comfort.

Upstairs, there are three well-presented bedrooms, which include a master bedroom with a double bed and an en-suite bathroom, a single bedroom and a further twin bedroom, which are serviced by a family bathroom. At the rear of the cottage, a completely secluded, mature, southerly facing garden with a babbling stream, two small bridges (one stone and one wood) and two separate terrace/patio areas attracts plenty of local wildlife from the adjoining woodland.

Guests at Crooked Lake Cottage can enjoy spectacular walking on the South West Coast Path, cycling countryside lanes, golf or some of the best beaches in the UK with Westward Ho! less than a 15-minute drive.
