Abigail's Cottage - Northam, Nr Bideford, Devon, England - Sleeps 5+1

Abigail's Cottage

Abigail's Cottage sleeps up to six guests and offers quirky yet stylish holiday accommodation in a superb coastal location, ideal for couples, friends or families looking for a holiday by the sea. Perfectly combining country charm with modern conveniences, this two bedroom holiday home is within walking distance of Northam Burrows and Westward Ho! on the North Devon coastline so ideal for lazy days on the beach.

Previously a watch repair shop, Abigail's Cottage is surprisingly spacious and has been delightfully transformed to provide luxury self-catering accommodation with a coastal theme running throughout. Stripped pine doors, original fireplaces, neutral tones and big vibrant paintings all add to the charm of this light and airy cottage.

Located in the little town of Northam in Devon, local shops, pubs, take aways and restaurants are within easy walking distance of Abigail's. Ideally placed for exploring this picturesque part of Devon, there are plenty of attractions within easy reach either by car, bike or foot. Northam Burrows Country Park (SSSI and AONB) is a vast area of coastal grassland, salt marshes and sand dunes providing a haven for wildlife and superb walking opportunities with wonderful coastal views. Virtually on the doorstep, the Burrows provide great opportunities for golfers with The Royal North Devon course sharing the site with walkers, horse riders and farm animals. The South West Coastal Path can also be easily accessed from the cottage.

Westward Ho! beach with its Blue Flag status offers great opportunities for those who enjoy water based activities, coastal walks and lazy days on the sands. Sitting just outside the village (a short stroll), the sandy beach is sheltered by a pebble ridge and cliffs and is one of north Devon's most popular beaches for lovers of sand, nature and rock pools, along with windsurfers, swimmers, surfers and fishermen drawn to the area in search of sea bass.

There are no shortage of great days out for all ages including the Big Sheep, RHS Rosemoor and boat trips to Lundy Island for some wildlife spotting. Whether you want to simply enjoy lazy days on the beach or want to explore North Devon, Abigail's Cottage provides a luxurious welcoming retreat at any time of the year.
