Cottage in Lovacott, Barnstaple, North Devon, England, UK - Quiet Location Just 3 Miles South Of Barnstaple
About Claire Lewis
I live in North Somerset with my husband, teenagers and black Labrador. We love North Devon, and really enjoy our visits to Marsh Cottage where we can always relax and have fun! I love to hear all the positive comments from guests about how much they have enjoyed their stay in all the different seasons and I am always delighted when guests come back again and again.
Claire Lewis purchased this Cottage in 2010
Why Claire Lewis chose Horwood, Lovacott and Newton Tracey
The North Devon coast is easily accessible and has a variety of beautiful sandy beaches - great for surfing and body boarding etc. The Tarka Trail cycle track is a favourite place for cycling. We enjoy dog walks from the front door including, our favourite a circular walk which encompasses the Hunters Inn, Newton Tracey- even the kids like this walk! We chose this area because the cottage is in a beautifully peaceful hamlet, although within a few minutes you can be in the bustle of Barnstaple which has a good choice of leisure activities, cinema, shopping and restaurants.
What makes this Cottage unique
The cottage is easy to reach - just three miles from the main Atlantic highway. It is instantly relaxing and ideal for adults, kids and dogs! The garden is great for Giant Jenga, a bit of football, dogs to explore and we think, perfect on a sunny evening to eat and drink on the patio! The cottage has a relaxed feel whether in the summer with doors and windows flung open or in the winter -cosy with the log burner. Having two lounges and a large kitchen means no one is on top of one another, there is plenty of space for all. The cottage has unlimited Wi-Fi. The guests repeatedly comment on the cleanliness and high standard of fixtures and fittings at the cottage and we feel it is a real home from home.

Claire was really helpful and answered all our questions prior to our stay. The cottage is lovely and worked really well for 4 adults and 3 children. We would all love to return.

Nice clean & peaceful property
Wife had problems with steps to cottage.
There are a few steps leading up to the cottage which we state in the info. I hope it didn't impact too much on your stay.
Lovely well equipped cottage
Fab cottage with a very well equipped kitchen, plenty of seating in the cosy lounge and a beautiful garden.
Situated in a quiet village within easy reach of Bideford and Barnstaple.
Great - thank you. Do book another stay soon!
Marsh Cottage is truly lovely. Deceptively big, with ample accommodation. We had fabulous weather, which meant we made a lot of use of the garden and garden toys. Well positioned in close driving distances to the Coast, beaches and many interesting places to explore, this cottage is a gem. Coming back to the cottage for a drink and supper sitting outside in the sunshine, playing Jenna with kids, ended four perfect days! I guess our grandchildren in saying they wished they had come for all of the Easter break, said it all. Thank you, a lovely cottage.
Delighted you had a great time - It’s an ideal spot for R&R in the sun! ☀️😎🍷. Please do book again!
Had a great weekend at Marsh Cottages Lovacott, even if the weather was pretty bad the house is very cosy, clean and spacious for the 7 of us, had a fab day playing games and visiting the local pub as the beach was rained off!! Highly recommend for a base to visit the many beaches a short drive away.
Had a super weekend in this well appointed cottage.
