This extremely attractive cottage nestles in the popular village of West Buckland in South Devon, close to the sea and is perched on the side of a hill with fabulous country views and a lovely garden that runs down to a stream. Picturesque West Buckland is full of pretty thatched cottages and is a short walk from Bantham. The cottage has a sunny lounge with real fire, a breakfast room overlooking the garden, a master bedroom with a wide balcony that takes advantage of the views and a superb patio area with quality seating, a barbecue and fire pit - perfect for al fresco dining. A path winds down from the cottage, passing a small raised pond to two large lawn areas and a summer house, so the whole house is geared to providing relaxing, outdoor, summer living. A truly special destination.
