The Details...

Delve deep into the North Devon countryside at Rose Cottage, a romantic retreat surrounded by rolling hills and steep valleys in the historic village of High Bickington. The thatched cottage dates back to the 18th Century, but has been lovingly updated to now combine traditional features with modern luxury.

After stepping through the heavy, wooden doorway guests are greeted by rural charm and character, with ancient beams, slate floors, and thick walls throughout. In the open plan lounge there is a comfy leather corner sofa sitting in front of the log burning stove and the large TV with optional 3D capability. There is excellent WiFi throughout and also Netflix and an oak dining table seating up to 4 people. Luxury continues into the designer kitchen, which is ideally set up for those keen cooks with a farmhouse sink, electric ceramic cooker, hob, dishwasher, microwave, coffee maker, and more.

Also on the ground floor is the double bedroom, which makes it ideal for guests with limited mobility and is exquisitely decorated and completed with a Laura Ashley headboard. On the same level is a bathroom with shower over the bath, basin, and WC. A short trip upstairs leads to the master bedroom, with its super king bed, French mirrored furniture and feature wall. Just by the bedroom the boutique chic style continues with a large copper bath, big enough for 2, set upon the original floorboards.

The five-star feel carries on outside into the private and secluded, Mediterranean-style rear garden. As well as a large seating area for alfresco dining sitting on a stylish slate patio and potted plants adding colour, there is also a Beachcomber hot tub located under a gazebo. Combining this with the champagne or breakfast hampers that are available makes for a holiday to remember.

High Bickington itself dates back to Saxon times and has 2 pubs, a post office that also sells basic essentials, and a golf course. For those who love the great outdoors then both Exmoor and Dartmoor are within easy reach, while the rugged North Devon coastline is just 30 minutes away by car.
