Farm Cottage - Bideford

We've just come back from a week in Devon...I won't say 'a lovely week' as the weather was pretty dire most of the time, although we did have a couple of nice days, with Friday being the best day and the one I enjoyed the most.

We stayed in a lovely farm cottage which was very private and yet close to amenities which was handy.

The photos of the cottage with the blue sky background were taken on the Thursday - one of the two nice afternoons we had!

It was pretty grey the afternoon we arrived - after what seemed to be a very long journey to get there. 

Inside - a nice bright and airy kitchen, although why they put the sink in the corner beats me, why not put it in front of the window so you get the lovely view?  Plus it was awkward, fiddly and nearly every time I washed the dishes I bumped my elbow on the wall that separated it from the space where the microwave was - not good for someone with chronic pain!  But apart from that niggle, it was lovely and clean and very well equipped.

Lovely cakes awaited our arrival, along with a small bottle of milk and a bottle of wine.

We enjoyed our meals together here.

Nice bathroom.

The room I slept in.

The room the Sailor and his Fiancee slept in

The room for anyone that was in the 'dog house'. 

Fields surrounded the property and I enjoyed taking the dogs for a walk each day across them.

I can't wait until we too live in the countryside.

  1. Too bad about the weather but the cottage looks lovely!

  2. Lovely looking place to stay, shame about the weather you had.

  3. That looks like a good place to stay.
