Verbena Cottage is situated in 18 acres of stunning gardens and woodland. Fancy a row on the lake? The spacious open plan lounge, complete with wood burning stove + 42 inch TV, is cosy + inviting.

Sitting in its own secluded + very beautiful garden, here Verbena Cottage basks in the evening sun.
Verbena Cottage is situated in 18 acres of stunning gardens and woodland. Fancy a row on the lake?
The spacious open plan lounge, complete with wood burning stove + 42 inch TV, is cosy + inviting.
The kitchen end of the living area is an inviting place for a meal. Comfortably seats 4.
The luxury kitchen is very well equipped with all mod cons; including granite worktops.
The smart kitchen has open views down to the lake.
The spacious and comfy bedroom has a TV and a luxury, super kingsize bed.
A great place to spend a relaxing Sunday morning.
Although ultra-modern, little touches add interest. Another window with a view to the lake.
The en-suite bathroom has a luxury space-age shower cabinet with built-in radio.
For those who prefer a nice hot soak, as well as shower the en-suite is equipped with a bath.
The view back from the en-suite bathroom to the bedroom.
Ready for a bottle of wine? The patio is a great place to watch the sun go down over the lake.
The summer house by the lake. One guest called it 'a magic place'.
You're welcome to use the summer house for a meal by the lake, or to relax and read a book.
The seat by the lake. A wonderful relaxing place to read the newspaper or a book.
The huge gardens have far-reaching vistas and drifts of plants. Don't forget your camera!
Verbena Cottage has its own private garden on three sides.
A peacock butterfly alights on a flower to drink the nectar.
In the meadow, wild orchids appear every year; though you'll need to hunt them out.
In autumn, a majestic white stag stands in a field which forms part of the 18 acres.
In a corner of the lake there's a hide. If you're lucky you might see a busy kingfisher.
A network of interesting woodland paths twist and turn through the trees around the 18 acres.
Carp bask in the warm surface water of the lake on a summer afternoon.
A woodland path wends its way around the lake, here seen in the winter sun.
The entrance to Lower Winsford Farm, where you'll find Verbena Cottage. Parking is straight ahead.

Reviewed 9 December 2013 for a stay in December 2013

Great communication with the owners from asking questions about the cottage to booking and then receiving directions and our departure.
In passing, I stated we would be honeymooning and we were greeted with Champagne and cake on our arrival.
A beautiful and peaceful surrounding area with a lake very close by to look at wildlife.
The cottage itself was all very modern with vintage flare! An amazing place to get away to. It was the perfect to what we were looking for and it didn't disappoint AT ALL!

“Beautiful cottage, stunning setting, great location and friendly owners”
Reviewed 2 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013

To anyone thinking of renting a cottage in North Devon I cannot recommend Verbena cottage enough. My partner and I very recently stayed there for a week and were blown away with the beauty of the setting, the comfort of the cottage, and the friedliness of the owners John and Anne. Although we had complete privacy at all times, it was helpful to have them nearby. We had a fantastic week exploring the unrivalled beauty of the surrounding area and it was perfectly located to spend days on the beach at Bude, Woolacombe, Sandymouth etc.. as well as go walking on Dartmoor. The grounds are like a private oasis of wildlife and nature and to top it all off there is an amazing lake with a rowing boat to float around in at your leisure. John and Anne have clearly put a lot of effort in making this a superb holiday let and have succeeded in creating a tranquil retreat in nature. We will certainly be going back again, as it would be equally as charming at any time of the year.
