About Peppercombe Bothy

Skip the hassle of putting up your tent this summer and stay in this coastal stone hut with sea-views for miles.

Comfortably sleeping up to four guests, Peppercombe Bothy is a very basic stone dwelling benefiting from wonderful views to Bideford Bay and close proximity to the famous South West Coast Path. 

Perfect for a group of friends looking for somewhere to get away from it all for the weekend, the bothy is ideally placed for a walking holiday. With just a handful of neighbours, the only thing keeping you awake at night will be the sound of owls hooting in the trees and foxes rustling in the bushes. 

Follow a meandering path down to the secluded Peppercombe Beach. With its wealth of rock pools and fishing spots, you’ll love exploring this beautiful stretch of the North Devon shoreline.

Just a short drive along coats and you’ll arrive at Clovelly. This famous old fishing village with its steep cobbled high street leading down to the harbour is home to range of local shops, pretty cafés and tea rooms and traditional pubs.

Parking: There is parking for a maximum of two cars just off the lane on the uneven track leading up to the bothy. 

Garden: The garden surrounds the bothy and opens out into surrounding woods. The immediate area in front of the bothy has short grass so you can sit out or play. Elsewhere, the ground is uneven and the grass is wild and long.

Hazards: Due to the remote location of this bothy, access is via a very rough track approximately half a mile long. Please drive very slowly and with great care at all times. Low slung vehicles should exercise particular care. 

Dog owners should be aware that there is no enclosed garden at the bothy.

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.
