Downe Cottages provide 'weather proof holidays' in the North Devon Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Honeysuckle is a one bedroom self catering holiday cottage and is ideal for relaxing holidays, romantic breaks, short breaks and weekend breaks, situated in an idyllic location.

Interaction with guests
When we created Downe Cottages our objective was to provide holidays that we would enjoy. We are very demanding visitors when we stay in hotels or cottages and we insisted that our cottages be:
Immaculately clean.
Warm whatever the weather.
Spacious (a cottage cannot be luxurious without being spacious).
Well equipped so that our visitors can come bringing only their clothes, their food and themselves.
Beautiful to look at both internally and externally.
With well maintained, spacious grounds
We welcome visitors to the cottage and we are on hand to resolve any problem that might occur. Everything in our cottages works as it is intended to work.

Perfect place for a wind down! Facilities were excellent, as were the surroundings. The hosts were most engaging. The cottage was spacious, clean and welcoming, with everything thought of, including tea and coffee! Due to a bout of illness, our sightseeing didn't quite go to plan, so we will definitely return - and make full use of the on site...

Management response:

We stayed at Honeysuckle Cottage, and from the first minute of walking into our lovely warm cottage we have been mightily impressed! Lovely little touches such as a ready made roaring fire, wine and chocolates to the very helpful Alan and Claire. We have not been disappointed in any way and will definitely be recommending this to our friends and...

About the neighbourhood
The Cottage is set within a beautiful courtyard formed by a group of old stone barns which have been lovingly converted to provide luxury self-catering cottages. The ambiance of courtyard is quiet, peaceful, perfect rest and repose.

Downe is located in the North Devon Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and looks West over the Atlantic (next stop America), North up to Lundy Island and (if you stand on tip toe on a little hill in our garden) East into Bideford Bay.

The star attraction of the locality is the North Devon Coast - rugged, raw and majestic with numerous picturesque small coves and beaches.
Getting around
A car is highly recommended for visitors to Downe. It makes everything so much easier particularly utilizing the variety of restaurants in the area. Having said that we regularly get visitors who park their car in the garage on arrival and next use their car on the day of departure.

We do have visitors stay with us who come without a car and we can arrange for them to be collected from Barnstaple Station if they travel by rail or from Bideford if they travel by coach.
Car advised
How to get there
Railway: Barnstaple: 40.0 km
We provide detailed directions when we confirm the booking. The directions include details of the supermarkets visitors pass in the last half hour of the journey and suggest places to stop and eat on the journey down.

We believe the journey down to Downe should be part of the holiday and our recommendations of places to eat is part of this approach.
Activities nearby
There Is A Golf Course Within 30 Mins Drive, Horse Riding Nearby, There Are Tennis Courts Nearby, Nearest Beach: 2.4 km.
