About this listing
Great Lilly Cottage is an historic 2 bedroom barn conversion sleeping 4, recently renovated to a high standard and nestled in a peaceful and picturesque corner of North Devon. Close to famous surfing beaches and the rugged wilderness of Exmoor.
Located on our farm on the outskirts of the village of Goodleigh, Great Lilly Cottage is a perfect rural retreat; only a 15 minute drive to the white sandy beaches of Saunton Sands, Woolacombe and Croyde, yet on the edge of Exmoor National Park. A perfect base to explore the whole of North Devon; whether you're into surfing or just scenery-spotting, coastal-hiking or horse-riding. Enjoy this peaceful rural setting that's only 5 minutes drive from the historic market town of Barnstaple, which has a wide range of amenities and tourist attractions. Great Lilly Cottage forms part of Great Lilly Farm where the owners, Kate & Ali live with their family and assorted menagerie including Pygmy Goats, Pigs and Chickens. The cottage is a 3 storey renovated barn with its own private parking and extensive & enclosed gardens - and being animal lovers, we happily accept well-behaved pets. Please note, although on 3 levels, the cottage is open plan with both bedrooms opening onto the central staircase.
Hello, we are Kate & Ali. We live with our 2 children and growing menagerie of animals at Great Lilly Farm, adjacent to our newly renovated holiday barn - Great Lilly Cottage.
We've always loved this part of the country and moved down from Scotland a while back to find a more outdoor way of life. We have chickens, pygmy goats, pigs, dogs & cats and we're hoping to make our own honey this summer.
We love living here - where else would you find foxes, badgers and Buzzards all making their homes in your garden?!
If you love the countryside, long walks, beautiful sandy beaches and cosy country pubs - this is the place for your next holiday.
