Willow Cottage

North Hill Holiday Cottages offer a choice of eleven self-catering retreats, set amidst glorious rolling Devonshire countryside. Providing a warm welcome to families, friends (including the four legged kind!) and couples, the cottages are lovingly presented and managed by the owners, and assure a comfortable stay with warm welcome at any time of the year.

An idyllic peaceful haven where you will immediately start to relax and unwind, North Hill Holiday Cottages offer excellent on-site facilities that include an indoor swimming pool (heated for all year round use), games room, tennis court (all weather), sauna and hot tub to bubble your aches away after a long day exploring the footpaths.

For those who can tear themselves away and want to get out and about exploring, Exmoor's stunning National Park is within easy driving distance, as is the North Devon coastline with the fabulous sandy beaches of Croyde, Appledore, Saunton, Woolacombe and Westward Ho!. The bustling town of Barnstaple provides a good range of shops and eateries and is five miles away.

Spend your days exploring the countryside, South West Coastal Path, cycling the Tarka Trail (bike hire available at Barnstaple), visiting country houses and gardens, enjoying a round of golf, or taking the little ones to award winning attractions such as the Big Sheep and Milky Way. The choices are endless with plenty to occupy the hottest and wettest of days.

Willow Cottage Continued

All cottages are well equipped and coordinated, and have central heating and log burners for winter breaks (except Glebelands which has a Rayburn). Set amongst eight acres of grounds, there is plenty of outside space for when the sun shines with lawns where children can let off steam, a play area and fields, all weather tennis court for those who like to keep active and an indoor games room for inclement weather.

The indoor swimming pool (thirty three foot long with a changing room, WC and shower) is heated to a comfortable temperature (28-31°C) and there is also a smaller pool beside it for toddlers (just over two foot deep and perfect for little ones who can't swim). For chilling, there is a Jacuzzi where you can let your stresses bubble away, and also a sauna.

All kitchens have full size cookers, fridges (including freezers) and microwaves and there is a communal laundry room available on site. Sitting rooms have comfy seating, televisions/DVD players and there is WiFi internet access to keep you in touch with the outside world.

Willow Cottage is the largest of all, sleeping six guests (plus an extra one on a folding bed). Located very close to the pool house (literally five steps!), accommodation is split over two floors and comprises:

Ground floor

  • Twin bedroom which may be suitable for those with limited mobility with en-suite shower room including a WC and wash basin.

First floor

  • Spacious twin bedroom with two single beds and room for an additional fold-up bed.
