Jasmine Cottage, Ocean Views in North Devon
Jasmine Cottage, Ocean Views in North Devon
This cottage is an excellent two bedroom holiday cottage on one level and is ideal for relaxing holidays, romantic breaks, short breaks and weekend breaks.
Jasmine Cottage was an old thrashing barn with walls dating from the 18th Century; each room has high vaulted ceilings which gives it more of a chapel look than a barn.
This cottage has fine views across rolling countryside to the Atlantic Ocean with garden table and chairs looking west over the Atlantic and is an ideal spot to watch our beautiful sunsets and clear starry skies.
The open plan living and kitchen area has two 2-seater sofas, a 32" digital television with D.V.D. player, an antique pine table with four dining chairs and a well equipped kitchen and includes a dishwasher, fridge/freezer, microwave, oven and washer/dryer.
The main bedroom has a Queen size bed (5') and an en-suite shower room, the second bedroom has two single beds and an en-suite shower room. Both bedrooms have two bedside tables, chest of drawers and a three quarter length mirror hung on the wall.
• Central heating in all rooms

Left on 07/26/2010 for a stay in July 2010 | A FlipKey verified reviewerReviewed Jul 26, 2010Stayed Jul 2010
we enjoyed a quiet and relaxing stay at Downes. The location is great but not close for restaurants, supermarkets and beaches, it requires some driving, this is why we deducted a star. The start for comfort was deducted because we felt a noise coming on/going off in early morning for a boiler or something in one of the rooms even though heating was off. This woke us occassionally and is overall a minor thing.
Overall a very nice stay and already recommended further. In terms of comfort and equipments: very well equipped, everything is here, and we mean everything, nothing to bring. We would come again.
