Dating back to the 1700’s, Clematis Cottage has been beautifully renovated with taste and care whilst still retaining every ounce of its original charm and character. One of a pair of thatched cottages, this cottage boasts a superb modern kitchen, fabulous inglenook fireplace and beautiful terraced garden with covered patio just perfect for al fresco dining, surrounded by terraces planted with shrubs, leading down onto a large expanse of open lawn. Typical of an historic 18thcentury cottage, a steep narrow winding staircase leads to the first floor, with further steps up to each bedroom and bathroom from the landing. Located in the tiny hamlet of West Buckland less than a mile from the glorious sandy beach of Bantham, popular for its surfing and iconic views of Burgh Island, and a brisk walk from the fabulous Sloop Inn at Bantham, this property also provides a perfect base from which to explore the surrounding countryside and of course Dartmoor is only a short drive away.Please note: the bunk beds are suitable only for children.

We loved this cosy cottage and the dog loved the enormous garden. The cottage was very clean, tidy, warm and well-equipped. It is located in a peaceful hamlet within walking distance of Bantham beach. We would definitely stay at Clematis Cottage again.
What a wonderful place. This cottage is beautifully set in the valley of West Buckland and perfectly placed for Bantham and Thurlestone. We had everything that we were looking for. As a family of 4 with dog, this is hard to beat. The garden and meadow is stunning - our girls are convinced that fairies live at the bottom by the stream and spent most of the week talking to them. So did the the dog. We had breakfast on the terrace, and cosy nights and family snuggles inside with the open fireplace and very comfortable and well furnished lounge. After long days of walking and surfing, this is a joy to come back to. The kitchen is very thoughtfully put together and we found all that we needed. We've been back and forth to Devon for generations. This cottage is one of our favorites. There is no doubt that we will return.
