Situated in the heart of Goodleigh, a charming North Devon village set just outside Barnstaple, Magnolia View Cottage is a spacious dog and child-friendly holiday home, ideal for families and groups of friends looking to holiday together in high-quality self-catering accommodation in the beautiful unspoilt Devon countryside.
This Grade 2 listed 17th century traditional Devon longhouse is actually the second oldest cottage in Goodleigh and spent its early years as the village carpenter’s workshop. Today, it has been sympathetically renovated and thoughtfully furnished throughout to offer guests a very comfortable and relaxing stay in quite unique surroundings.
There is a lovely calm and tranquil feel to this beautiful spacious holiday home, where you feel you can leave the ‘stresses of normal daily life’ at the front door, and enjoy a real ‘home from home’ break at any time of the year.
You enter the cottage into the main entrance hallway that offers plenty of space to hang coats and store boots, plus under the stairs provides the perfect spot for your four-legged friends to sleep (dog basket, blanket and bowl are all provided).
Turn right from the hallway into a charming, comfortable living room, home to plenty of countryside character with a wood beamed ceiling, original fire hearth complete with wood-burning stove, ideal for those cooler evenings. There is also a large comfortable corner sofa, flat screen TV with Freeview and Netflix, and a good selection of books and games to provide the perfect spot for relaxing after a long day exploring.
Back through the main entrance hallway, there is a delightful dining room with a large table comfortably seating 8 guests and has lovely views of the garden and a piano.
A well-equipped kitchen has a classic butler’s sink and a stable door with lovely garden views and the countryside beyond. Appliances include an electric oven with hob, a coffee machine, a small fridge, and dishwasher. A separate utility room is home to a large fridge/freezer, washing machine and leads onto a ground floor shower room.
On the first floor of this North Devon holiday cottage, there are four bedrooms, all with stunning countryside views. These include a double bedroom with a double bed, another double bedroom with a super king sized bed, a pretty twin room with two single beds and a final double bedroom with double bed and a TV with Nintendo Wii. The family bathroom features a bath, a separate shower, WC and a wash basin.
The beautiful countryside garden at Magnolia View can be easily accessed from the hallway or kitchen. The garden is fully enclosed, so ideal for those holidaying with young children and dogs. A lower patio decked with fairy lights, an outdoor picnic table, a BBQ provides the perfect spot to relax outside while kids can play safely on the lawned area too. The main highlight is the ancient magnolia tree.
A travel cot, high chair, bed guard and a baby monitor can also be provided on request.
