Abscott Cottage is a stunning, rural North Devon holiday cottage near Barnstaple and has been designed as a luxurious, open plan self catering holiday cottage for six people in three double bedrooms – all with en suites. You’ll enjoy its big internal spaces, the uncluttered contemporary feel, beautiful views of the North Devon countryside and a certain “wow factor” created by its light and airy spaces which just ooze the holiday feeling from the moment one arrives.

Abscott is a contemporary detached self catering holiday cottage near Barnstaple built with the open plan reception room, one vast pine-beamed space on the first floor to make the most of sweeping views over the stunning North Devon countryside. On the ground floor you’ll discover three spacious en suite bedrooms, two with double doors opening onto suntrap patios.
Built in 2006, the Cottage is designed specifically for self catering holidays for families or friends. Whether inside or out, there are plenty of spaces for communal gathering. Chef’s won’t need to cook alone should they not wish to, while outside south facing patios and lawns act as sun traps for lazy afternoons in the company of good friends.


Abscott Cottage is sited in the middle of a large, fully enclosed garden, with ample patio areas for sunbathing or dining under the stars (from Easter to the end of September a large barbeque is available).

The garden is mainly laid to lawns and shrubs so is both child and dog friendly. There is plenty of outside seating. Beyond the garden you look out over a wonderful backdrop of paddocks and a young apple orchard, in which newborn lambs play in spring.

There is also gated off-road parking for several cars.

The ground floor of the cottage contains three large-sized double bedrooms, each with an en-suite bathroom. The stunning master bedroom has a double height vaulted ceiling, and French windows leading onto one of the patios, ideal for catching the morning sun. In its en-suite bathroom you can choose between a double head shower, and a wonderful roll top bath. The master bedroom has a zip and link bed, set up as a king-sized bed, which can be separated to form 2 single beds if requested in advance.

French windows and a patio are also features of the second bedroom with its pretty view of the garden. This room has an en suite shower room, with luxury shower, loo & basin. This room also has a zip and link bed which can be set up either as a king sized bed, set up as a king-sized bed, which can be separated to form 2 single beds if requested in advance.

The third bedroom has equally lovely rural views of the North Devon countryside from its floor to ceiling glazed doors. It has a double bed and large en suite bathroom with inset Bette bath.

All the downstairs bedrooms are fully carpeted and heated by gas central heating.

There is also a small guest cloakroom on the ground floor.

Upstairs you’ll discover a set of 3 interconnected open plan reception rooms with stripped pine floors, beamed ceilings and floor to ceiling windows giving panoramic views of the glorious North Devon countryside.

The sitting area has ample seating including 3 comfortable sofas arranged around a wonderful wood burning fire. On cosy autumn or winter evenings relax here and enjoy the DVD/TV or use the music system as background to a good book.

The kitchen area has been carefully laid out to provide lots of room for ‘social cooking’. It’s fully equipped with oven, hob, microwave, dishwasher, washer/dryer and a large American style fridge/freezer with water dispenser and icemaker. The cosy pine kitchen table with 6 chairs makes the perfect place for breakfasts not taken on the patios or informal eating.

The third area is the more formal dining area, which is fitted out with a stunning country pine dining table and pew style benches.
