Nestled in the pretty and welcoming village of Woolfardisworthy, Coryana Cottage offers comfortable accommodation just two miles from the unrivalled North Devon coastline. This delightful and cosy 200 year old terraced cottage is full of character. Exposed wooden beams, lofty kitchen, large inglenook fireplace and a peaceful enclosed garden are just a few charms that this traditional Devon cottage provides. Perfectly suited for couples or a family of three, Coryana Cottage is sure to appeal as a wonderful quiet holiday retreat, no matter what time of year.  Woolsery village, which reflects a rich heritage going back to the Doomsday Book, is surrounded by unspoilt rolling Devon countryside and offers a most convenient touring base for exploring North Devon and Cornwall.

Only three miles away is the timeless village of Clovelly, where the steep, cobbled street tumbles down past gleaming white cottages to the deep blue harbour. Stroll alongside a stream down to the rocky secluded cove at the ancient fishing village of Bucks Mill. This part of North Devon boasts so much to do with riding, golf, sailing and fishing activities found in abundance.  Famed surfing breaks and long stretches of sandy beaches are found at nearby Westward Ho! and Bude. Walkers can explore the rugged Hartland Peninsular; cyclists of all levels will enjoy the Tarka Trail; and garden lovers will appreciate the beautiful RHS Rosemoor and nearby Hartland Abbey and Gardens. Explore some of the local fishing villages such as Instow or Appledore; enjoy a day trip to Lundy Island; and plenty of family fun is to be found nearby at The Milky Way Adventure Park in Clovelly and The Big Sheep amusement farm park in Abbotsham.

Traditional front door opens into porch. Door into delightful wooden beamed living room with superb inglenook fire place with electric wood effect stove and furnished with comfortable cottage style suite, oak dining table to seat 3, TV and DVD player. One step down into traditional style kitchen with vaulted beamed ceiling, wooden units and equipped with electric oven, microwave, fridge freezer and washing machine. The rear kitchen door opens on to a lane leading to Woolsery village centre, just 50 yards from the cottage. From the lounge to first floor landing are cottage-style stairs. Bedroom 1 with double size 4ft 6in bed, wardrobe, chest of drawers and front garden views. Bedroom 2 with single size 2ft 6in wide bed and front garden views. Bathroom with bath only, hand basin and WC.

The enclosed front garden which is predominately paved and bordered by mature shrubs and plants, offers a peaceful place to sit out and relax under the sunshade after a long day out. It is furnished with a bistro table and chairs, perfect for alfresco dining.

A good base for many excellent beaches. The village has excellent shop and fish and chip shop and would be really topped off when the pub is open after its refurbishment. Shame the outside space does not benefit from a bit of grass.

July 2017

We enjoyed the village but no pub or restaurant in walking distance.

August 2016

Coryana Cottage proved to be a comfortable base and formed part of an enjoyable weeks break. Amenities at the cottage were good, plenty of hot water and good kitchen equipment.

July 2016

The local facilities: well stocked shop and excellent fish and chips/homemade burger shop were really useful and allowed us to feel part of the local community and eat well. We were really impressed with how friendly everyone was.

December 2015

We found Coryana cottage an excellent jumping off point for all the attractions that we wanted to see around the north Devon coast. This type of accommodation is much preferred to a hotel as it gives the feeling of home away from home and the additional space to feel comfortable. A very enjoyable and easy experience!

August 2015

We had a great holiday. the information provided was fantastic. Really appreciated the local information on parking and things to see & do. thank you.
