I have now had the amazing opportunity to stay at Pebble Cottage twice in my travels. It is nestled in beautiful North Devon, just tucked away in Braunton.
Its perfectly situated far enough from the the town to not hear any hustle bustle, but still close enough to walk to enjoy the local restaurants or pubs.
It is also in a great location for hitting the beaches. Whether you’re into sunbathing, spending a family day building sand castles, eating ice creams, or catching waves; there is a beach there for you. The main beaches are Saunton, Croyde, Putsborough and Woolacombe.
The cottage itself is ridiculous. Its so beautiful and the owners make sure you have everything you need. I have stayed there on my own and also with my family, both times it was great! For kids, you can request a high chair and cot, and there are also plenty of toys to keep them amused. There is even a summer house for the kids to play in, which mine just adored.
For the adults there are lots of goodies to greet you, local fudge and other sea inspired snacks, milk and prosecco in the fridge, along with wine. We even had a full cream tea with freshly made scones on arrival.
The cottage has a fully functioning kitchen with everything you need to have a fuss free visit. The living room has extremely comfy sofas which are perfect for snuggling into and watching Netflix with the wood burner crackling away.
Upstairs you have two bedrooms, one has a double bed and the other two singles. They both have beautifully finished bathrooms attached, one with a bath with a shower in and the other with a stand alone shower. The window shutters are beautiful and really bring home the beach vibe of the cottage, and they work perfectly to shut out the night when its time to slip into slumberland.
All throughout the interior you have original pieces of artwork, some done by the owner and other sourced locally. There are beautiful finishing touches such as jars of sea glass collected from the local beaches, or retro wooden bodyboards. Its just stunning.
Theres an outside courtyard with a huge table where you can enjoy your evenings under the starry sky, and through the archway there is a sizeable garden with a kids summer house and a surf shed full of equipment for your convenience from buckets and spades to wetsuits and surfboards.
Both times I have stayed I have thoroughly enjoyed myself and I’m sad each time I leave. I can’t wait until my next visit to this beautiful beach nest.
