    About this property

    An ideal holiday retreat, Wheelwrights is a delightful cottage with many picturesque walks and villages close by.
    Ideally located for exploring the delights of North Devon and Exmoor, Chaffcutters (ref. UKC1406) and Wheelwrights (ref. UKC1407) are the perfect base for your holiday. Converted from an old stone barn, the properties still have a couple of clues to their past life. The well-appointed cottages, with their enclosed courtyard gardens are located in the hamlet of Kentisbury Ford. From here, you are never very far from the attractions that make north Devon a great holiday destination. Whether you are a couple with a dog or a young family, there is much to see and do in the local area. The stunning, sandy beaches at Woolacombe, Croyde and Saunton are a must during your stay where you can learn to surf or hopefully, top up your tan. There are many other coves and bays at Combe Martin, Lee Bay and Hele Bay which are ideal for rock pooling. Towards Lynton and Lynmouth there is dramatic scenery as Exmoor meets the coast, from the plunging cliffs at Countisbury Head to the beauty of the Valley of the Rocks. There is the Victoria Cliff Railway connecting Lynton to Lynmouth and also access to the South West Coast Path. At Ilfracombe, there is bustling harbourside and the Tunnels Beaches. The regional town of Barnstaple has a good range of shops and amenities including the must see historic Pannier market. For some real holiday excitement, a trip to Watermouth Castle, Combe Martin Wildlife Park or the Big Sheep will certainly make somebodies holiday. There are National Trust properties at Arlington, Knightshayes and Castle Drogo and the RHS gardens at Rosemoor are certainly worth the journey. There is cycling on the Tarka Trail, golf, horse riding and fishing all available locally. Shop 500 yards, pub 1½ miles and restaurant 750 yards.
    These properties can be booked together to accommodate up to 8 guests.

    "The cottage is ideally situated for north Devon. Owners very nice when I spoke to them on the phone to arrange arrival time. The cottage doesn’t appear to be used that frequently, is damp and there is a damp smell in the property. The carpet could definitely do with a clean and the walls have mould and are wet in places. It wasn’t the cleanest place that we have stayed in. The cottage could do with an information booklet and more leaflets for walks and places to visit - very limited. It could be a really nice place if the damp and cleanliness were sorted out."

    "Comfortable cottage but heating didnt function properly, dishwasher wasn't working downstairs hoover wasn't working. There was black mould in the main bedroom which spread progressivly up the wall during the week. It was stressful having to notify owners of all these things which is one thing I had come to this cottage to get away from. Good location near to coast and park."
