About Gordon's Cabin

In the tiny village of Morthoe, this cosy cottage has Woolacombe bay just round the corner.

Who knew an old linhay could make such a cosy and inviting holiday cottage? Black and white photographs from the late 1800s show the farm building in its heyday, with a horse and carriage passing by. Now after a careful restoration, Gordon’s Cabin has been brought back to life to provide a unique stay, with views over the north Devon countryside.

Inside, you’ll find an atmospheric open-plan space for two people, with tall beamed ceilings and contemporary interior styling. It sits on the edge of the hilltop settlement of Mortehoe which overlooks a wild and remote coastline. From here you can stroll into the village for its 13th-century church and traditional pubs.

Just a five minutes’ drive will take you to Woolacombe beach, a hotspot for surfers and sun seekers alike. If you prefer to walk the coastline, then hop onto the South West Coast Path for long hikes along Mortehoe Point and the rest of north Devon’s rugged coastline.

About the Acorn rating

We have applied a 1-5 acorn rating to each cottage to be used only as a guide that covers location, style of interior and facilities you may be looking for. The range runs from 1 Acorn at a more basic level such as Bird How which due to its stunning yet remote location doesn’t have a caretaker through to 5 Acorns at the highest level – such as Shute Barton.

Cottage pricing is not judged on the Acorn rating alone and as all our cottages are of an individual nature we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice.
