SITUATION
Kings Cross Cottage is located at the end of a council owned, no through road situated in elevated position with no near neighbours, taking in the uninterrupted views over the surrounding countryside through the valley down towards Welcombe Beach. The rugged North Devon coastline around this region is extremely dramatic and is classed as an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The renowned Welcombe Mouth is a quiet and tranquil beach, much quieter than some of the sandy beaches further down the coast due to its access and remoteness which is one of North Devon's best kept secrets. There are also excellent walks available close by where stunning vistas can be enjoyed. The village has a good range of amenities including a period Inn serving daytime and evening meals, general store/Post Office and a recently renovated active village hall. The larger village of Hartland, approximately five miles away, has an excellent range of local amenities including cafe, shops, Post Office, pubs, medical centre and primary school. There are churches, a variety of clubs and societies within short driving distance of the property.
Just over the Cornish border, approximately 18 miles, is the coastal town of Bude with a range of larger shopping facilities, amenities and beach. Bideford is approximately 17 miles distant with the regional centre of Barnstaple being 27 miles distant and offers all the area's main shopping, business, leisure and commercial venues and access to the M5 motorway network via the A361.
