Nutcombe Cottage

Ref: 10665

Sleeps: 4 (2 Bedrooms)

Nutcombe Cottage is a detached, Grade II listed, bank barn conversion with the added bonus of its own south facing enclosed terrace and garden, so perfect for those with children or dogs.


Nutcombe Cottage comprises of:   

First Floor: Being a bank barn, entry is from the rear of the property at ground level onto the first floor of the cottage. Here you will find a large open plan living/kitchen/dining area with vaulted ceiling, exposed beams, solid English oak floor and original stonework.

The kitchen area has blue fitted cupboards with granite worksurfaces and is equipped with a Smeg fridge/freezer, ceramic hob and electric oven, dishwasher, microwave, washer/dryer, toaster, kettle, with enough crockery for four people and more, so the dishwasher doesn’t need to go on every day. There’s even scales and mixing bowls if you feel like baking!

The open plan lounge/diner has a large flat screen TV with Freesat box offering over 200 channels as well as a DVD player with a small selection of DVD's. There is a large comfortable corner sofa to curl up on for cosy nights in, allowing relaxed seating for four people and solid oak furniture. The dining area seats four around a sociable round table with views from the window. There is an information folder with our favourite places to eat and visit and details of dog restrictions on local beaches.

The two bedrooms are located on the lower level along with the shared shower room.

The king size bedroom has a large double oak wardrobe with drawers and bedside cabinets to match the solid oak floor and a beautiful wrought iron Gothic style king-size bed from which you can look out at the great views over the garden to the fields beyond. There is also a utility cupboard which houses the iron and ironing board and hoover.

The twin bedroom also has solid oak flooring with a large double oak wardrobe as well as a dressing table with mirror equipped with a hairdryer. The twin beds can be zip-linked together to create a Super-king bedroom, making the property perfect for two couples.

Shower room. The two bedrooms share a limestone shower room with large walk in shower with rainfall head plus a toilet and washbasin.

Central Heating and WiFi All our cottages have full oil fired central heating with unlimited free WiFi.

Linen All linen is provided including towels and T-towels. We ask that you bring your own beach towels and dog towels and that cottage supplies are not used for this purpose.

There you will find dining furniture with sun umbrella as well as two sun loungers where you can sit and relax and admire the views. In addition to the enclosed garden, there is a raised deck area off the lounge with seating for four; perfect for breakfast.

Family Friendly We have available a full-size wooden cot together with a highchair for our younger visitors. There is also a stair gate at the top of the stairs.

Here are some of the lovely comments we've had left from visitors to Nutcombe Cottage. Please see our other cottages for comments on Cider House & Nutcombe Barn

  • We stayed in the beautifully furnished Nutcombe Cottage which had stunning views and a perfect location for exploring the north Devon coast. Jackie has ensured COVID-19 safety measures are in place and the cottage was spotlessly clean. Jackie was very helpful and friendly and we really enjoyed the lovely cream tea. Thank you for a very pleasant stay!

    — Tracey, Trevor, Laura, Chloe & Luna 🐶, 12 Oct 2020
  • We loved our stay at this cosy cottage. Everything in the cottage was perfect and to a very high standard. The homemade scones and jam were the perfect welcome after a long drive. Thank you for our stay. P.S. The dog tags, bowls etc were appreciated. Gus (the dog) loved his first time at the seaside :)

    — Andersons & Gus the dog, 31 Oct 2019
  • We all had a wonderful time. The cottage is just as lovely as it was last year. We look forward to coming again.

    — Thompsons, 25 Oct 2019
  • We've had a wonderful time and have been so pleased with the cottage. It's really comfortable and well equipped. It's given us easy access to many of the lovely beaches fairly near by. We've had some very good meals too. Lesley's favourite was the Fox & goose in Parracombe despite our initial hesitation as we parked opposite. It;s an odd looking place but the interior is much better and good (steak) was good. Colins favourite meal was the Sunday roast at Sawmills in Berrynarbor. The beef was superb. We will be recommending Nutcombe to family and Friends. P.S. The spring water is a real bonus. It made our tea taste fantastic and showering in it was superb. Ralph drank it copiously and he is very fussy!

    — Lesley & Colin & Ralph the dog, 13 Oct 2019
  • A wet and windy week for us but we haven't let that stop us exploring and enjoying ourselves. Dan had fun surfing at Woolacombe. Molly & Daisy enjoyed the beaches and playing in the sea at Woolacombe, Putsborough & Widemouth bay, the Tarka Trail and Arlington Court. A great comfortable cottage.

    — Brigitte, Daniel & Mollly & Daisy the dogs, 28 Sep 2019
  • Fantastic weather. Great Cottage, really restful place. Thank you for the cream tea! Made us feel welcome.

    — Lorraine, John & Patsy the dog, 20 Sep 2019
  • Another lovely week at Nutcombe. We love enjoying walks into Combe Martin. Visited Arlington Court, Ilfracombe and enjoyed sunny weather walking the beach at Woolacombe to Putsborough sands. A very relaxing time with great weather to make the most of the sun-loungers and views. Excellent place to stay. Thank you. :)

    — Richard & Kelly & Darcy & Digby the dogs, 30 Aug 2019
  • Lovely cottage. Very comfortable and well equipped. Everything we needed. We loved Heddons Mouth and the walk to Woody Bay. Also walks from the Valley of the Rocks, Marine drive above Woolacombe beach always a winner. Thank you
    Our favourite things to do! Woolacombe Dunes 5K Park run- Dunes of Doom!! Woolacombe beach - great waves! Exmoor Zoo- Lots of unusual endangered animals. Ilfracombe Beach- brilliant rock pools & lots of things to find. Lynton & Lynmouth- Walked the coastal path- very steep but a gorgeous walk. Look out for the goats. Lastly, Watersmeet - stunning waterfalls.

    — Ellis & Atkinsons, 09 Aug 2019
  • What a brilliant week! We were lucky enough to have family in Nutcombe Barn and Cider House so have been able to enjoy the full space at Nutcombe. Beautiful views!

    — Gemma, Phil, Isabel & Eliana, 02 Aug 2019
  • Wonderful stay in the most amazing cottage. Calm and peaceful. I adored waking up to the sound of nothing! Thank you so much. We don't want to leave.

    — Andrea, Will & Bella the dog, 26 Jul 2019
  • We have had an amazing week in Nutcombe cottage. Peaceful, relaxing, great views, amazing places for dog walks including Woolacombe, Baggy point, Arlington Court (National Trust), Saunton Sands as well as beautiful weather. Thank you

    — Darren, Louise, Jake and Oscar & Dog, 19 Jul 2019
  • Lovely week in Nutcombe Cottage, thank you. We had beautiful blue skies all well so we could make the most of the amazing beaches and walks.

    — Miles, Lotte, George and Grandparents, 12 Jul 2019
  • Had an amazing and relaxing stay in the beautiful cottage. Highly recommended

    — Fay, John & Lauren and dogs, 21 Jun 2019
  • Very much enjoyed our first holiday with the hound and at the lovely Nutcombe Cottage and don't want to leave! Highlights have been walking on Woolacombe beach to Putsborough, Saunton Sands, Westward Ho! beach round to Appledore and Instow beach. Also the coastal path from Combe Martin to Watermouth where there is a delightful 'Boat' cafe overlooking the bay.The 'Favourite Walks' recommended in the visitor information that we did, were the Morthoe to Morte point and Valley of the Rocks which were very good and particularly like Morthoe village. The identify tag supplied is a great idea.

    — Chris, Christina and Mabel the dog, 07 Jun 2019
  • Lovely Cottage in such a beautiful part of the country. The sun has shone every day which helps! Spoilt for choice for walks. Morte Point was probably our favourite coastal walk. We also ventured to Simonsbath for a walk on Exmoor. Eaten out every evening with no disappointments. 7 The Bistro at Lynmouth was the highlight, but would also recommend the Pyne Arms, and Terre Madre at the Broomhill Art Hotel for something a bit different.

    — Jan & Pete, 24 May 2019
  • We've had a wonderful week. The cottage is very comfortable and we enjoyed relaxing here as well as lots of trips exploring! Highlights were learning to surf on Woolacombe beach. A walk along the coastal path at Morthoe and eating at the Fox & Goose in Parracombe. Thank you. We'll definitely be back!
    George Age 9 - I really enjoyed staying at the cottage. The captains table in Woolacombe was my favourite cafe. I also recommend the Fox and Goose. The beaches are amazing and surfing is really fun. I'm coming back!!

    — Emily & Family, 24 May 2019
  • What a little gem! Cottage well-equipped, clean and beautifully kitted out; double sized shower much appreciated! Enjoyed our coastal walk around Morte Point and Croyde beach was great for both us and the dog Views spectacular and very lucky with the weather. Recommend the Fox and Goose for an evening meal; dog friendly too. Would definitely stay again and recommend.

    — the Laugharnes, 22 Apr 2019
  • Very beautiful accommodation in such a gorgeous setting. Amazing to find a delicious cream tea waiting for us! Thank you. We only ate out once at lunchtime in Lynton and can highly recommend (dog friendly too) at Charlie Fridays. The walk along Valley of the Rocks was gorgeous and we walked from Woolacombe to Putsborough and had hot chocolate at the beach cafe (also dog friendly). We normally holiday in Croyde but accommodation isn’t dog friendly hence finding Nutcombe. Will be passing details on to others. Thank you for such a lovely stay with all of Devon’s weather! P.S. Also chips at Saunton Beach café delicious! Dogs allowed on the balcony.

    — Catherine, Richard and Happy the dog, 05 Apr 2019
  • A fantastic few days away as an extended family over the New Year. We enjoyed visiting several local beaches including Combe martin which were all wonderful. An exciting coastal walk in the fog and rain was one to remember! The three cottages were excellent with plenty of room for all. Very well equipped and safe for the kiddies of all ages, making the break most relaxing and enjoyable. The dog garden worked very well for us. Thank you for your kind hospitality, until next time!

    — The Roberts Family, 04 Jan 2019
  • A fantastic week. Wonderful accommodation with exquisite views. We’ve enjoyed every moment and seen as much of Devon as possible. All credit to David & Jackie for creating this environment.

    — Marian, Colin, Janet & Alan , 27 Oct 2018
  • ‘ Lovely stay in Nutcombe Cottage. Amazing views from the cottage. The kids loved Watermouth Castle and the Wildlife and Dinosaur Park. Woolacombe was amazing

    — Manktelow Family, 25 Aug 2018
  • We have had a wonderful holiday here at Nutcombe; very quiet and peaceful, allowing time to reflect and remember very happy memories of holidaying her in Devon as a child. Beautiful surroundings and cottage. We really enjoyed our day at Lynton & Lynmouth and Rosie loved going for a paddle in the river to cool down. Woolacombe beach is very dog friendly. Clovelly a challenge but well worth it. Thank you Jackie & David for having us 😊 😊

    — Ruth, Dave, Jenny & Rosie, 16 Aug 2018
  • What a wonderful place with fantastic scenery. We loved being at Nutcombe Cottage and found it very relaxing. Thank you for your hospitality. We enjoyed trips to Ilfracombe, Exeter, Lynton & Lynmouth, Porlock Wier, Hartland quay, Clovelly, Appledore and Instow and on the last day Watersmeet. We had fantastic weather. We will return. Megan and Sam loved the swing and slide and ‘Peter’ the rabbit wo we saw outside every day. Thank you for having us’

    — Pam, Nick, Sam & Megan, 04 Aug 2018
  • What a lovely week we have had in Nutcombe Cottage. The weather has been very kind to us. The cottage itself is lovely and a very relaxing place to stay. The cream tea on arrival was a nice thought and went down very well. The field for dog walking is an excellent idea as Meg loved bouncing around. A very enjoyable stay was had by all. Thanks Nutcombe Farm 😊

    — Elaine, Dave & Meg, 28 Jul 2018
  • We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Nutcombe Cottage. A beautifully appointed home from home. We have been blessed with gorgeous weather for our weeks stay and have enjoyed relaxing in this beautiful countryside.

    — David & Jackie, 07 Jul 2018
  • This is our fourth stay in a year but the first time in Nutcombe Cottage. We are struggling to choose our favourite as they are all so beautiful, comfy and well equipped. Had an amazing week here with sunshine all day everyday- yet to see a cloud! Sunsets have been stunning. Tried kayaking for the first time from Combe Martin to Watermouth Cove for a delicious cream tea at ‘Storm in a Teacup’. We love to walk from Lynmouth to Watersmeet. It took us 15 years of holidaying in North Devon before we discovered that walk and wish we’d found it earlier. To eat we recommend Sawmills, Berrynarbour and Barricane beach curry; curry served up for you to eat on the beach! Jackie and David are wonderful hosts; helpful and friendly. Thank you

    — Cheryl & Rob, 30 Jun 2018
  • We have had a wonderful weeks stay at this beautiful cottage. Have been very lucky with the weather so have been able to enjoy the outside area and sit and relax listening to the sound of the birds, sheep and peace and quiet, bliss! Would recommend the Hunters Inn for food and also the walk that start there to Heddon Valley. Great food too at the Black Venus in Challacombe. Lynton & Lynmouth for a lovely day out and you can walk from there to Watersmeet, a beautiful setting. Thank you for making our stay so comfortable and for the lovely cream tea on arrival. We will be recommending to others

    — Lindsay & Paul , 16 Jun 2018
  • Thank David & Jackie. We have enjoyed our week with you. Such a lovely cottage; beautifully furnished and so comfortable. You have made us feel so welcome. Hope to return soon

    — Mike, Lesley & Paul, 09 Jun 2018
  • Lovely comfortable cottage with everything we needed to have for a relaxing holiday. Sunbeds on the patio a great idea as we were lucky to have lovely weather to enjoy them

    — Maurice & Effie, 26 May 2018
  • Lovely cottage in a beautiful setting. Our children (4 & 7) have enjoyed Combe Martin Wildlife and dinosaur Pakr, the beach at Woolacombe, The Petting Zoo at Stowford Farm Meadows, as well as exploring the land around the cottage. Sawmills for a drink in the sunshine by the river is lovely too

    — The Turner Family, 14 Apr 2018
  • We have had a beautiful 5 nights in the cottage. Very welcoming upon arrival. Couldn’t have asked for better weather or views. Every night and day has been completely relaxing and peaceful and the cottage had everything we needed. Ruby and Bently have had 10 mile walks every day! Overall, a fantastic holiday in a stunning cottage. We hope to return in the near future. Thank you
