The hamlet of Darracott nestles in a quite superb rural position between the villages of Georgeham and the large village of Braunton. Retreat Cottage itself is found set on a typical, charming Devon lane which is surrounded by delightful countryside. Just over 1/2 a mile away is the village of Georgeham which has store/post office, excellent primary school and two highly regarded bistro pubs. Also within a very short drive are the renowned and superb sandy beaches at Croyde and Saunton, known for their excellent surfing and water sports. Saunton also boasts an excellent golf club with its two championship courses. Braunton village is regarded as one of the largest in the country and caters well for its inhabitants with an excellent range of amenities including Tesco's, health centre, public houses, restaurants and a good number of local shops and stores. Barnstaple, the regional centre of North Devon, is 5 miles from Braunton and here a wider range of amenities can be found. There is access to the North Devon Link Road which provides a convenient route to the M5 motorway at junction 27. The Tarka Train line connects to Exeter in the south and from here picks up to London (Paddington). This is therefore, a very well located property which enjoys the peace and serenity of the countryside, yet still accessible to the coast and towns.
