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. The cottage also benefits from fibre optic broadband. 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 Mills. 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.

We enjoyed our stay very much. It's our third in the last four years so we love Devon, but the cottage didn't contribute much to our enjoyment it was really just a base to sleep in. The cottage could be a beautiful little bolt-hole in a lovely spot, but unfortunately while we will be returning to Devon in the future I don't think it would be to stay at the cottage again.
One main trouble was the parking. The lady in Cory Cottage was parking in front of the brown garage and partly on the gravel so it was hard to get parked as it was a tight corner. It was a case of who got there first. We told her we were meant to park there but she took no notice and said we could park anywhere.
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.
We enjoyed the village but no pub or restaurant in walking distance.
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.
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.
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!
We had a great holiday. the information provided was fantastic. Really appreciated the local information on parking and things to see & do. thank you.
