Triangle Cottage is on the site of Tawstock’s former village cider cottage. It is a lovely rural retreat away from the hurly burly of modern life for a family or group of friends. The village, a conservation area, has a historic manor and thirteenth century church with some of the finest monuments in Devon. The church includes a sensitive restoration in 1867 by Sir George Gilbert Scott.
The cottage offers easy access to the beautiful North Devon coast and sandy beaches at Instow, Westward Ho!, Croyde and Saunton Sands. With its proximity to the South West Coast Path, Exmoor and the Tarka Trail, Tawstock is well located for walking (village and further afield) and cycling holidays. Garden lovers can enjoy visits to nearby RHS Rosemoor and Marwood Gardens.
There are beautiful country-side or village views from all rooms in the cottage. On the ground floor there is spacious entrance hall with room for prams and coats/boots, an inner hall which leads to a double aspect lounge and dining room. The lounge has two sofas, TV, DVD/ recorder and VHS and there is also a second TV, DVD player and quiet seating corner in the dining room. The dining room opens out through French windows to a raised deck with far reaching rural views and steps down into the garden.
In the well-equipped kitchen there is a dishwasher but you will not mind doing the washing up yourself as the view from the sink across the fields to the woods is absorbing. There is a double electric oven (with fan), fridge, freezer, microwave, toaster, and washing machine (tumbler available in the garage).
On the first floor there are 2 double bed rooms and a large double aspect bedroom with four single beds (two of the singles are high level bunks). The main bedroom and large bedroom have built in storage and wash hand basins. Off the landing there is a shower room, recently refurbished to a high standard. There is a further fully fitted bathroom on the ground floor.
The front garden has a paved drive with parking for 2-3 cars and flower borders. The rear garden is overlooked by the deck. It is stepped with lawns and flower borders, a quiet seating area and a sheltered, sunken barbecue area. It is perfect for watching the sunset on a peaceful summer’s evening.

A beautiful relaxing place with all the comforts of home. by Sarah B on April 8th 2017
"We love Triangle cottage, and we keep returning because it is such a great place for a family holiday. Our kids love the garden and the bunkbeds, and spotting the wildlife in the surrounding area. There are lots of great places to visit within easy reach, and each time we go we've found new things to do. All round its a wonderful place to stay. Highly recommended."
