This delightful and spacious cottage dating from the 16th century is situated a short distance from the sandy beach at Saunton. Uniquely situated in the heart of an area of conservation and a protected biosphere reserve, incorporating both beach and burrows which allows for miles of walking. This property which is 1 of 4 onsite, was originally the old shippen barn to the main farmhouse and linked cottages, one of which is mentioned in the Domesday Book.
