Cottage with woodburner,

Pillhead Cider House is a historic cottage nestled in Pillhead Farm near Bideford, Devon. With original features and an open-plan living space, the cottage is a lovely dwelling for a couple or two friends looking to escape to wonderful coastlines and countryside. This snug cottage also welcomes one well-behaved dog and babes in arms. Pillhead Farm hosts plenty of off-road parking for guests where you can park up and get settled into your home-from-home; entering the old cider house, a charming open-plan living space welcomes you with white-washed walls, original beams and all amenities needed for a wonderful self-catering stay. Start the woodburning stove after long walks along the coast and settle into the plush sofas for a film night. Set the dining table for two and rustle up a home-cooked meal in the kitchen area, complete with electric oven and hob, plenty of cupboard space to stock up, and a washer/dryer to quickly clean clothes and beach towels ready for the next day. Take five steps down to the lower ground floor, where a double bedroom awaits, which is zip/link and can be twin on request; gaze up at the fantastic oak beams, enjoy lazy mornings in bed watching your favourite shows on the TV and store your belongings in the ample storage space. With classic cottage décor, the en-suite bathroom features a jacuzzi bath and walk-in shower, where you can soak tired legs in a bubble bath or rinse off the sand with a hot shower. Pillhead Cider House has vast communal grounds and farmland to explore. Dine alfresco on the picnic areas with a barbecue, wander the lovely countryside surroundings, or take to the on-site outdoor, heated swimming pool to swim a few morning laps before the day begins. Resting in the perfect spot for award-winning sandy beaches, quaint towns and villages, as well as dramatic coastlines to trek, Pillhead Cider House is an ideal spot to call home whilst you explore the best of Devon.
