Abigail's Cottage (the cottage)Abigail’s Cottage is a beautiful self-catered property in Northam, near the North Devon coast. The front door leads into the airy lounge, with its lightly textured walls and floors and pastel blue accents that give the cottage a beach theme. A gas fire with flame effect and large marble fireplace sits in the centre of the lounge as the main feature. Directly opposite is a comfy sofa-bed with two comfy armchairs either side. A flat screen TV with DVD player is mounted to the wall in one corner, and there are plenty of board games to keep everyone entertained.
Through the other side of the lounge is an attractive kitchen/dining room. A circular pine dining table sits to one side with plenty of room to seat six; it’s also close to a sash window, which directly overlooks the lounge. Further back in the room is a spacious contemporary kitchen with charming traditional features. You’ll find a fridge/freezer, electric oven, gas hob and dishwasher in the kitchen along with pots, pans, cutlery and crockery. The room also contains some colourful artwork, which contrasts with the light coloured walls and floors.
The first three beds are located in the bedroom upstairs at the front of the cottage. There are two delightful twin beds, which can be linked together for a double, and a comfy decorative day bed that can be used as a bed or sofa. There’s plenty of storage for holiday clothes in the chest-of-drawers, and small bedside tables with lamps for late-night reading. Further down the hallway and just outside the bedroom is the main bathroom with shower, toilet and sink.
The double bed is in the master bedroom near the back of the cottage upstairs. It sits in a stunning antique brass frame that brings a sense of character and magic to the room. The bedroom also has a nice en-suite too, complete with a deep roll top bath, toilet and hand wash basin.
Up some stone steps from the kitchen is the garden terrace, which often catches the sun due to its south facing location. There is plenty of garden furniture along with an outdoor dining table with BBQ, allowing you to make the most of the great weather.
