About Kingfisher Apartment

Have a mini getaway break in this sweet apartment located in the heart of picturesque North Devon.

This cosy riverside apartment, Kingfisher Apartment, will give you a chance to disconnect from the world and unwind. It’s a stone’s throw away from a scenic bridge and ford, not too far from local shops and is surrounded by rolling Devon hills. It’s the perfect location for walkers and countryside explorers – a great place to have a peaceful night’s sleep after an active day of rambling.

With three bedrooms, there’s enough space for everyone to relax, whether you’re on a family staycation exploring the beautiful rolling hills, or on a walking holiday with friends to challenge yourselves. It’s a rustic, cosy bolthole tucked away in a pretty village in Exmoor, with plenty of countryside to explore.

Just over two miles away is your nearest shingle beach at Lynmouth. Four-legged friends will love to run and play in the varied landscape surrounding you. There are lots of peaceful walks nearby to choose from perfect for dreamy summer days, like the one along the river to Cloud Farm around two miles from Kingfisher Apartment, or the historic loop around the valley to indulge in some leafy green sights – which is great if you want a challenge as it’s eight miles total to traverse.

And when your stomach begins to rumble, there’s a popular tearoom next door to the apartment (open in summer only) to indulge in some cream tea before you settle down for the night in your cosy bed. Or if you’d like to travel a little further afield, you’ll be around seven miles from both Lynton and Porlock. The village of Porlock has three pubs, two grocery shops, lots of amenities and a range of independent restaurants, shops and tea rooms. Lynton is a small town in the opposite direction and boasts similar amenities, both well worth a visit. 

Fans of R. D. Blackmore will be interested to know that the nearby Doone Valley inspired him for his well-known novel, Lorna Doone. Take a self-led tour of the novel and journey through places such as the medieval village at Hoccombe Combe and the water slide at Lank Combe. You’ve got rolling hills and open spaces on your doorstep if you choose to stay at the Kingfisher Apartment.

About the Acorn rating

To help find the best cottage for you, we have created our own quality rating system for our holiday cottages called the Acorn rating. Ranging from 1-5 Acorns, the rating gives you an indication of a property’s facilities, fixtures and fittings, with five being the highest quality level. The Acorn rating is not connected to any other industry rating system that may be used for holiday cottages and is only to be used as a guide that covers location, style of interior and the facilities you may be looking for. We do not set our cottage pricing based on the Acorn rating we have given a cottage as all our cottages are of an individual nature. Therefore, we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice. In addition, some of our cottages are curated to be sympathetic to their time period. This means that they might not have all of the aspects of modern living, but impress in so many other ways.

1 Acorn: simple living accommodation with basic furniture and fixtures fit for purpose and clean. Running water and a toilet are provided. There could be some limitations to heating and washing facilities – details of these will be stated clearly on the cottage's webpage. Bedding, linen and towels are supplied with a few exceptions, which are again clearly stated). Facilities for basic catering and living are provided. In general, a 1 Acorn cottage does not have WiFi.

2 Acorn: a mid-quality range of furniture and fittings. Bathroom facilities are basic or there may be a high number of guests to bathroom ratio depending on the size of the cottage. Very few 2 Acorn cottages have WiFi and the kitchen white goods and washing facilities are basic. Bedding, linen and towels are supplied in all 2-5 Acorn cottages.

3 Acorn: a good, standard offer. Generally it is correctly proportioned for the number of guests but could have a few compromises, for example a small kitchen, or a lower bathroom to guest ratio. The variety of white goods available will be better than a 2 Acorn cottage.

4 Acorn: these cottages have more premium furniture, fittings and lighting. Additionally the ratio of bathrooms to guests is likely to be higher, and the bathrooms would be more likely to have separate and spacious showers instead of showers over baths.

5 Acorn: a luxury accommodation offer with very few limiting factors. This is the highest offer available. It is well-equipped and has spacious facilities throughout the cottage or is set within an extraordinary location or building. The furniture is of a high standard, and has real comfort for modern living.
