A Berrynarbor holiday cottage near Ilfracombe in North Devon was our holiday destination of choice this year. Berrynarbor is between Ilfracombe and Combe Martin on the North coast and is easily accessible from the A339.
Mrs W spent many a long hour looking for a holiday cottage in Berrynarbor that would be ideal for our summer holiday. After a lot of searching and looking at reviews on TripAdvisor she discovered the ideal Berrynarbor holiday cottage in the form of Pink Heather Holiday Cottages in the Sterridge Valley. There are 2 holiday cottages at Pink Heather and they are absolutely beautiful. The main house and the cottages are set up the side of a hill and the only sounds that you can hear are the birds and the sheep.

The view from our Berrynarbor holiday cottage
This is the view that we enjoyed from our cottage looking across the Sterridge Valley, isn’t is beautiful.
We decided to eat out in the evenings and found a great little pub called the Ye Olde Globe which is a traditional character pub filled with antiques and curiosities. Ye Olde Globe dates back to 1675.
We also visited The Focsle Inn that overlooks the bay at Combe Martin. The food was really good and it was nice to sit outside and watch the tide come in.
Our Berrynarbor holiday cottage is also an ideal base for visiting some of the other attractions up on the North Devon coastline.
We traveled into nearby Ilfracombe for a walk along the harbour a few times and had the obligatory ice cream and a pasty. As well as visiting Combe Martin and Ilfracombe we also paid a visit to Woolacombe on our last day of our holiday.
Woolacombe is noted for it’s long sandy beach and it didn’t disappoint one little bit. One the day that we visited is was hot and sunny so Mrs W was able to roll her jeans up and take a paddle in the sea.
Sadly our holiday came to a finish and we had to return home to Salisbury and back to reality. If you’re planning a visit to North Devon in the near future and are looking for somewhere peaceful to stay then I would recommend this Berrynarbor holiday cottage. The cottages are owned by Stewart and Wendy Crocker and the address is Sterridge Valley, Berrynarbor, North Devon. EX34 9TB Telephone 01271 883093
