This 19th-century retreat was left unoccupied for years, its position in the wooded valley of Peppercombe now enjoyed by those seeking sanctuary from ordinary life.
The cottage’s rooms bear the typical cottage attributes, including stone-flagged floors and fireplaces, while its sloping garden lies in a romantic spot between the trees. From your door follow the woodland path down to the beach. The scenery here is dramatic: a jagged red Triassic stone cliffs frame the shore and on the distant horizon the outline of Lundy island rises out of the sea mist.
