Positioned in the heart of the village of Westleigh, this semi detached stone cottage is a wonderfully welcoming example of English country accommodation with style and comfort. The bedrooms are attractive and the woodburner makes the sitting room a wonderful room to curl up in after an afternoon in the garden with village views, taking a drink in the local pub just a moments stroll, or enjoying the sandy beach at Instow and the amenities of Bideford and Barnstaple.

Less than two miles from the beaches and coast of lovely Devon sits the quiet village of Westleigh, which has a pub with good food, and is well placed for enjoying walks around the pretty countryside. The village of Instow has an attractive quayside which is home to a selection of pubs, as well as a sandy beach which makes a great spot for a family game or picnic taking in the views towards Appledore. 2 miles further east is Bideford, a thriving town with a selection of amenities, while Barnstaple offers yet more choice. A perfect base for a seaside or country holiday.
Devon has quite a few claims to fame such as being the backdrop to many films, including; War Horse - starring Benedict Cumberbatch, Tom Hiddleston, and directed by Steven Spielberg. Sense and Sensibility - starring Emma Thompson, Alan Rickman, Hugh Grant and Kate Winslet. The French Lieutenant's Woman - starring Meryl Streep and Jeremy Irons. Edge Of Tomorrow: Live Die Repeat - starring Tom Cruise, Emily Blunt and Brendan Gleeson. So you may recognise a few of the locations from their appearances on the big screen.
Did you know that Agatha Christie, Reverend John Russell, Sir Francis Drake, and Sir Walter Raleigh all hailed from Devon? Agatha Christie went on to become a best-selling novelist, Reverend John Russell developed the Jack Russell Terrier, Sir Francis Drake circumnavigated the world, and Sir Walter Raleigh became a famous explorer.
South Devon is home to over 20 miles of Torbay coastline which is otherwise known as the 'English Riviera'. Brixton, Paignton and Torquay are the three Riviera towns and are great places to enjoy a day at the seaside. So if you fancy some fresh sea air and picturesque views then visit the 'English Riviera'.
The Dartmoor National Park can be found in Devon and offers visitors a dramatic moorland landscape, ancient woodland, rare wildlife and notable influences, such as the location for Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes case 'The Hound of the Baskervilles'.
We hope you enjoy your break in Devon!

Reviews for Elm Cottage
A lovely cottage in a lovely village with welcoming owners. It was well equipped and well furnished with delightful artwork by the owner covering the walls which was a nice touch, spent some time looking and admiring the work. A very handy property for the local pub which was a 2 minute walk.
