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.

Bantham beach is five minutes' walk from the village and is one of Devon’s premier beaches, a favourite with both families and surfers alike.
Situated a mile away from Bantham, Thurlestone Golf Course is one of the most scenic courses in the South West of England.
The South West Coast Path can be picked up from the nearby beach and leads east towards Thurlestone, about 20 minutes away by foot.
The Sloop Inn offers delicious fresh fish and chips and is a long-standing favourite with visitors to the village.
Whether you’re kite surfing, paddleboarding or wild swimming, South Devon provides fantastically scenic opportunities for trying out all sorts of adventure sports.
Walk the miles of stunning South West Coast Path (with your four-legged friend if staying at a pet-friendly property), stopping off in quaint villages and deserted coves.
Devon boasts Britain’s Ocean City, Plymouth, steeped in seafaring history, or for a spot of retail therapy why not visit historic Exeter.
You’ll feel closer to nature whilst in Devon, but if you fancy a more exotic experience, try Paignton Zoo or the National Marine Aquarium for great family days out.
Explore the quaint villages, miles of beaches and walk the coast path in South Devon, making sure you stop off for a cream tea en route!
Property reviews for Brook Cottage
Lovely property set in beautiful gardens,very comfortable home ,had everything we needed for a weeks stay.Weather was fantastic and leo our lhasa Apso dog loved his walks on the beach at Bantham.The Sloop inn, a short walk away as good food,and is dog friendly.I was looking forward to relaxing in the jacuzzi bath,but unfortunately it did not work,despite this we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend this property.
We absolutely adore the property and area and have stay there four times over the past two years. Excellent views and location look forward to going again next year. Would like to suggest an update with the TV facilities as the weather was unreliable on the last visit. Suggest a new recording facility and DVD.
