Nutcombe Holiday Cottages offer three beautiful, luxury, self-catering, dog friendly, holiday cottages on the outskirts of the village of Combe Martin in North Devon.

Set in five acres of North Devon’s Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, on the edge of Exmoor National Park, our three Grade II listed, bank barn conversions have been lovingly renovated whilst retaining many of the original features with exposed beams, English oak flooring, granite worktops and limestone shower rooms. Each of the cottages has its own south facing sun terrace or garden with ample off-road parking, and for our four-legged visitors, a separate dog garden and three-acre field, so we can provide the perfect environment for families, friends and couples. Plus, we are open all year round too!  

The perfect location

Set in a truly magical setting in a quiet, secluded valley, you will enjoy the stunning countryside views, the peace from no passing traffic, the magic of the stars at night and appreciate the sounds of nature once more.  Yet you have the best of both worlds! We are just five minutes’ drive to the cove at Combe Martin with its beach side pubs, restaurants and cafes, or for the more energetic, magnificent walks along the South West Coast Path and the clifftops of the Hangman Hills and Holdstone Down, the highest sea cliffs in the country. We are also the perfect base to explore the magnificent sandy beaches of North Devon with Woolacombe, Croyde and Saunton, just 20 minutes’ drive away, and the many other family attractions the region has to offer.

Ideal for couples or larger groups

We welcome parties from 2-14 at Nutcombe. Our two smaller cottages are perfect for couples or small families sleeping up to four in each, while our larger cottage, Nutcombe Barn comfortably accommodates six in three en-suite bedrooms.

If you looking for somewhere for a larger family gathering, we can also offer Nutcombe Barn and Cider as one larger property (opened up at living room level) which would accommodate up to ten people in five en-suite rooms. Perfect for those special family holidays, like Christmas or New Year, or when your family has outgrown your house for those special family gatherings.

All in all, Nutcombe Holiday Cottages, offer a perfect, rural escape, to this, beautiful, unspoiled stretch of English coastline. Come and see for yourself!

Want to be even nearer the sea and all on one level?

If five minutes drive to the beach is too far for you, then we can also offer a three bed-roomed bungalow, sleeping up to six which is just a three minute walk to the shops, restaurants and bay at Combe Martin, set in a private road No Through road. 

Elsley is south facing with lovely vistas of the valley opposite. It's location makes it the perfect base for exploring the South West Coast Path, so a great base for walkers. Although Elsley is equipped for families, it also makes the perfect base for couples sharing or a couple on their own and is ideal for those with slight disabilities or the elderly. There is a fully enclosed large front and rear garden; ideal for children to play in safely and parking for at least three cars on the driveway.
