Cottage
Higher Primrose Cottage is a 17th century Grade II listed cottage nestled within the heart of the idyllic village of Winkleigh, Devon. A stones’ throw from most amenities, Higher Primrose Cottage is the perfect base from which to explore both Dartmoor & Exmoor. Both the North Devon & North Cornish coastlines with their glorious sandy beaches are within easy reach at just over 40 minutes away. So whether you want to walk or cycle the Tarka Trail, or take a picnic up onto Dartmoor or Exmoor, or perhaps spend a day at the many Blue Flag sandy beaches of North Devon and North Cornish coasts, staying at Higher Primrose Cottage offers you the best of all worlds! The cottage can accommodate either 2 adults or 2 adults and 1 child. Plus 1 small well behaved dog!

The cottage can accommodate either 2 adults or 2 adults and 1 child. Plus 1 small well behaved dog! We have tried to blend period charm with modern-day comfort. The ground floor contains a living room with a wood burner and a properly stocked kitchen. There is a TV with Freeview plus free WiFi. The stable kitchen door opens out onto a small gravel courtyard which is a perfect suntrap! Upstairs you will find the bathroom with bath & shower, 1 double bedroom with a comfy Victorian bed and 1 small bedroom with a single bed. Beautiful views of Dartmoor can be seen through the skylights which sit above the galleried landing. An off road parking space is located at the rear of the property and can accommodate 1 small/ medium sized car. Plenty of free parking can also be found just around the corner in the village square. We try to support local artists and businesses where we can. Most of the artwork and some of the furniture is local - if you see something you like and would like to know more please let us know & we can provide you with details of the artist or business.

Picture perfect cottage in quaint English Village
Amazing quaint little cottage in the heart of the village, around an hours drive to the north Devon coast and Torquay so great location- being in the middle of the country there are a lot of country lanes to access but it's worth it! Amazing welcome box on arrival plus toiletries and loads of towels! Our kids have loved their stay as has our dog - it was too warm to use the log burner but we made use of the games that were in the cottage as there was a selection of games, puzzles, books and DVDs. The parking space can be a little challenging but we managed to park our 18 plate CMax fine, lovely little courtyard. Kids loved the bunk beds but we found the double bed a little on the soft side, that aside we still slept well! Nicole is a brilliant host and was more than happy to answer any questions both on the lead up and during our stay. Highly recommend!

About the neighbourhood
The cottage sits in the pretty village of Winkleigh in the heart of Devon. Dartmoor and Exmoor are both within easy reach and great for walking or cycling. The beaches of Westward Ho!, Saunton Sands, Woolacombe and the North Devon coast are approx 40 minutes drive, and the North Cornish coast and Bude beach are about an hour away. A selection of top class golf courses and fishing activities are also close by. RHS Rosemoor and Dartington Crystal are a 15 min drive.
Getting around
A car is the best way to get around as the village is in a rural setting. Whilst there is a bus service to both Exeter and Barnstaple these are infrequent. The nearest train station is Eggesford Station which is approx 5 miles away.
