The pretty Aggie's Cottage is a quirky three bedroom cottage located near Ilfracombe in North Devon perfect for families or couples. Fully renovated, the former stables have a fun sense of period charm, with shabby-chic furniture cleverly blending in with painted wood beams and high vaulted ceilings.
Entered from the pretty courtyard door, Aggie’s Cottage is bright and welcoming. The spacious open plan living space with original Marland brick flooring is wonderfully modern without losing any of the cottage's historical magic. The up-to-date, fully equipped kitchen has everything you will need to rustle up a meal, including an electric oven with grill, a ceramic hob, a microwave, a fridge and a freezer. The washing machine can be found next door to the downstairs bathroom.
A chunky stripped pine farmhouse table comfortably seats six and is neatly set to one side of the bright and spacious living area to provide a comfy place to eat for all the family. The lounge with soft rug covered floor has a large corner sofa, scattered with bright, funky cushions impeccably located for curling up and watching a film on the wall mounted flat screen TV, with separate DVD/CD player.
Open tread wooden stairs from the living area lead up to the first of Aggie's two double bedrooms. This beautiful room with sloping ceilings and beams enjoys wonderful views from the delightful dormer windows.
A charming Victorian style bathroom featuring an original roll top cast iron bath and toilet with pull chain cistern can be found at the foot of the stairs off the living area.
The first door off the hallway leads to Aggie's pretty twin bedroom with painted antique pine bedside cabinets and matching double wardrobe. Please note that only one bed in this twin room is full size with the other being 2' 6" wide.
A huge painted pine king-sized sleigh bed can be found in the Master Bedroom situated at the end of the hallway. This beautiful room with high ceiling and wood beams is wonderfully elegant with a large glass chandelier, matching bedside cabinets, a double wardrobe and a chest of drawers.
Bedroom 2 and 3 share the second family bathroom, which has Jack and Jill entrances. The bathroom, which has travertine tiles is fitted with a shower, a toilet and a wash basin.
From the lounge area a partly glazed stable door opens out onto 3.5 acres of beautiful grounds with fabulous uninterrupted views of the glorious countryside and the Atlantic Ocean. A small flight of steps, next to the pretty flowering rockery beside the cottage, leads to Aggie's private dining area and portable barbeque.
