LUXURY SELF-CATERING HOLIDAY COTTAGE IN DEVON, ENGLAND
Your luxury Devon cottage holiday will start in style, with a log-burning stove will be laid ready for you to light, wine, snacks and marshmallows for toasting. There’s a deep, feather-filled sofa, comfortable armchairs, window seat with views of our walled rose garden, state-of-the-art Sonos system, television with Netflix and Amazon Prime, glossy travel and design magazines and a library of beautiful coffee-table books.
The dining area is in one-half of the living room, allowing you to dine in front of a crackling log fire. We provide beautiful Sophie Conran crockery, fine table linens, candles and stylish serving ware. There’s comfortable seating for four.
Our luxury Devon cottage kitchen may be small, but it’s perfectly formed and stocked with everything you need to cook that Sunday afternoon roast. It’s stocked with sharp Global knives, Brissi table linen, a dishwasher, store cupboard basics and a range of cookery books to inspire the foodie in you.
Your bed is king-sized and comfortable as a cloud, with ultra-soft, 600 thread-count Egyptian cotton bedsheets layered with plump pillows. North Bovey is incredibly peaceful: the only sounds you’ll hear are birdsong, distant church bells and the occasional clip-clopping of horses’ hooves. Views are of sheep-filled pastures and wooded hills grazed by wild Dartmoor ponies.
It’s hard to choose which bedroom is more luxurious! Our second bedroom has a fabulously comfortable king-sized bed, which can be split into two narrow singles for a £15 fee. There’s a large French armoire, romantic window seat with village views and decorative ironwork made by our local blacksmith.
Upstairs, the cottage’s luxury bathroom has a huge vintage copper slipper bath (named by the Evening Standard as one of the UK’s best), powerful rainstorm shower, underfloor heating, White Company and organic toiletries, fluffy towels, slippers and cosy dressing gowns.
Our sunny walled cottage garden is garlanded with honeysuckle, clematis and stocked with delicately-scented David Austin Old English roses, lavender and herbs. There’s outdoor seating for four, a shaded bench seat, lawn and borders planted with beautiful hostas, alliums, tulips and hydrangeas.
