Very well appointed cottage beside owner’s house, in peaceful garden, with views of surrounding countryside: on private road, only 1 mile from Barnstaple town centre. Prices vary according to the number of people staying staying (4, 5 or 6).

As you walk through the glazed front door into the sunny hall you will find the three bedrooms; one double, one twin and one very large room with three single beds (which can be rearranged to a superking and a single on request), a small cottage suite and its own Television and DVD player. The other bedrooms also Televisions.

Returning to the hall and ascending the stairs you will find a modern kitchen which is fully equipped with fridge, electric cooker, dishwasher and microwave oven etc. The oak beamed dining room can easily seat 6. The washing machine and tumble dryer can be found hidden away in the bathroom which is also on the first floor and has a separate shower.

The lounge is tastefully decorated and extends into a conservatory offering unspoilt views of the valley. This room has a Television with DVD and Video players.  A door from the conservatory takes you out onto the patio and on into the garden. Pitt Arches also boasts a crystal clear water supply that is piped from the hill behind the house. The well has never been known to run dry, even during the drought of a few years ago.

Relax in these peaceful surroundings with breakfast on the patio or an evening barbecue. Should the weather be cooler, enjoy the comforts of full central heating. It is difficult to believe that the cottage is only 1 mile from the High Street of Barnstaple with all it’s facilities. The walk into town, down a typical Devonshire lane is level going and takes about 15 – 20 minutes.

The Dairy Cottage is a beautiful Holiday Cottage In Barnstaple in the North Devon valley of the River Yeo, mentioned in the book "Tarka the Otter".

It stands at one corner of a large courtyard, which until 1978 was the collecting yard of Pitt Farm's dairy unit. When the farm was split up, the milking parlour together with the hayloft above was skillfully converted into the main house, known as Pitt Arches (so named because of the arches through which the cows passed to be milked), and the adjoining cottage, Dairy Cottage.

Either side of these are two large enclosed barns that stand now as they must have done for some 300 years. They encircle the courtyard, making a wonderful suntrap and providing parking for our visitors.

If you are looking for a lovely holiday cottage in Barnstaple then The Dairy Cottage offers you a warm welcome with luxurious and spacious accommodation set among the quiet hills of North Devon.
