You’ll get to experience England’s Little Switzerland when you stay at this cottage in Lynmouth. This famously hilly part of the Devon coast, adjoining Exmoor, was given the Alpine nickname by the poets Robert Southey and Percy Bysshe Shelley who were impressed by its beauty back in Victorian times. They certainly would've enjoyed a stay in this cheerful home which provides a consistently warm and comfortable welcome. Relax in the open-plan living room or out on the terrace amid beautiful views of the valley. It’s not quite a Swiss chalet but it is a delightfully remote base for a proper country and coast escape. A stay at this riverside home would be particularly suitable for walkers looking to tackle the dramatic landscapes of the South West Coast Path, Tarka Trail or Two Moors Way. Don't fancy huffing and puffing? There’s a cliffside railway that offers the views with none of the exertion. There are plenty of other attractions around here too, including cream teas, golf courses and lovely sandy beaches a short drive away.
Home truths: *Do bring your car as you'll need it to get around but be aware the only parking is on the street
*There's a television and wi-fi but you might want to bring more options for evening entertainment
*There's only one bathroom so you may have to queue in the morning
