Summer Haze Cottage ( www.northdevon-cottage.com ) is a cosy 3 bedroom character cottage situated in the quiet hamlet of Higher Warcombe, within an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, just 5-10 minute drive from the award winning sandy/surf beaches of Woolacombe and 15 minute stroll from the picturesque village of Lee Bay and its safe coves , good for rock pooling, snorkelling and kayaking or just relaxing.
The cottage is available for holiday rental throughout the year and is an ideal base for families, sports enthusiasts, walkers and golfers. The property has gated off-road parking, large sized garden with fenced play area with 3 swings, slide, play house, garden toys, garden furniture, outside lighting, BBQ, and fantastic countryside views and some sea views. On the ground floor the cottage has a fully fitted kitchen, sitting/dining room with wood burning stove, further free electric heating + character staircase, bathroom with bath/shower over and a double bedroom also on ground floor (convenient for the elderly). Upstairs are an additional 2 bedrooms - one large with a 4-poster double bed (+ cot if required) and a smaller L shaped childrens bedroom with staggered bunk beds.

Secluded coves: We are fortunate to live in a beautiful, protected and unspoilt Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) landscape of North Devon. There are unspoilt beaches and coves dotted along the coast from Saunton Beach to Lee Bay (within a 1-5 mile radius of the cottage), which can be reached via the coastal footpath and winding country lanes. Without the need to drive if desired . So, if you fancy the idea of possibly having one of the beaches/coves to yourself, such as Rockham Bay, Bennetts Mouth, Hillymouth or Sandy Cove, then this is quite possible.

What a Week!

By JP BURGAN on 07-Aug-2019

After an arduous car journey we were delighted to be greeted by the utterly lovely Summer Haze cottage. Alan, the owner, is a fantastic host - was extremely welcoming and helpful. The cottage itself is exactly as described and is charming. The garden/play area were an instant hit with the kids and the cottage is cosy, clean and well furnished. We will definitely be back and have no hesitation in recommending Summer Haze. FIVE STARS.

Beautiful cottage in quiet, stunning area

By BETH R on 31-Jul-2019

Had an amazing week in Summer Haze Cottage. 2 kids, 2 dogs and my husband and I were delighted with the accommodation and the constant sunshine was a huge bonus. The cottage stayed lovely and cool as it’s close enough to the sea to feel a lovely breeze. The garden was loads of fun for the kids and dogs and for me sunbathing too! Close by to Lee Beach for snorkelling and body boarding and of course stunning Woolacombe beach was 10 mins in the car. The cottage was Well equipped with everything we needed and a beautiful and generous welcome basket on arrival. Alan was a superb host and had so much local knowledge that enabled us to make the most of our time in the area. He is such an interesting guy to speak to and went above and beyond to look after us. What a fabulous start to the summer.

Absolutely fabulous holiday in unique beautiful cottage

By Tracey C. on 13-Jun-2019

Had a fabulous time. Both Alan and Gemma were fantastic and friendly and the welcome package of milk and various biscuits, cookies and wine (plus other things) was a wonderful surprise (although the kids didn't get a sniff of the shortbread, all mine!) The location was perfect for the area and both Alan and Gemma were very knowledgeable with recommendations for places to visit or eat. Nothing was too much trouble. I'll be booking again for next year as soon as I get paid. Thank you Alan and Gemma.

Perfect location, lovely cottage, very child friendly, fantastic enclosed garden for the dog

By Roger B on 09-May-2019

Had the perfect holiday at Summerhaze, came away totally relaxed! The cottage is ideal base for exploring the North Devon coast, left car and just walked for miles. Alan was a great host and an absolute mine of local information and so friendly (had many a chat ). Garden was ideal, had separate child area which granddaughter enjoyed and Logan our dobermann had a great time (he must have had a good time as had trouble getting him in the car when it was time to leave).

The cottage has everything you could need. Mobile reception not great but that was a bonus as could chill out with family, log burner is a nice touch as evenings were a bit chilly.

Would recommend the cottage especially if you have dogs as have stayed at other cottages who state they have enclosed gardens and when arrived are definitely not, our dobermann (a great escape artist) was well contained so another plus point for relaxation!

Lovely Cottage and location

By Chas B on 08-May-2019

We had a lovely stay at Summer Haze. It's a great location, just far enough not not hear traffic, but close enough to pop and get Fish and Chips. It's a great base for walking some of the beautiful surrounding countryside and exploring all of the coves and beaches nearby.

Alan was on hand to give some welcome advice about where to go, what to see, with some fascinating tales of the local area, and a really interesting and friendly chap to chat with.

It's a great cottage with everything we needed, and a fabulous welcome pack, which was well received. A smashing garden with an area for young (and slightly older) children to play, and an area for sitting out and BBQ.

Views of the surrounding area were amazing.

My wife's first comment was "Wow, the photos don't do this place justice".

It's a lovely, charming cottage in a beautiful setting.

Lovely cottage in a beautiful part of the country

By We Stayed At Summer Haze Cottage For 5 Days Last W on 05-Nov-2018

We stayed at Summer Haze cottage for 5 days last week, (Monday - Friday) The cottage was everything we had hoped for, peaceful location, great for exploring North Devon and only 5 mins from a coastal walk. Alan was very pleasant and helpful with places to go, the box of goodies was a nice touch as was the logs.

The woodburner was an added bonus and made the cottage rally snuggly in the evenings. Dogs loved it. Would definitely recommend this place to anyone and would return tomoor if we could.

Clean, wonderfully quiet, peaceful and welcoming - everything you could look for.

By Keith A on 27-Jun-2018

A family run holiday cottage with a welcoming feel. The house has a restorative feeling such that it would be a challenge not to relax. If you relax too much there are multiple options for coffee making, including an advanced coffee espresso machine. The owner, Alan, is a fountain of knowledge for local coffees and excellent places to visit. There are no end of beautiful walks in every direction, so no need to take a car if you relax too much! Thank you Alan for creating such a great place.

Perfect place for staying with small children

By Sophy J on 19-Feb-2018

Really cosy winter stay with three children with everything set up for fun and safety with very young ones. Alan was very helpful with working the woodburner and the cottage warmed up nicely during very cold, wet windy weather. Beautiful countryside and beaches nearby with stunning walks to the sea from the cottage. Alan was there to meet us on arrival and let us in and readily available to answer queries during our stay. Would be amazing in the summer too and would definitely come back again at any time of year.

Lovely Winter break

By Tony A on 10-Dec-2011

5 of 5
A lovely winter break. The cottage is just superb. Clean tidy and well maintained. Very very warm with the woodburner going in the evenings. Ideal for anyone wanting to get away from it all, but still close enough to not be remote. fantastic walks on the doorstep. Huge amount to do in the area from fishing, surfing ,walking, horse riding, just about anything you can think of. Alan was very attentive and helpful, the walks he recommended were stunning.

We shall certainly be returning soon.

Thank you for another wonderful break.

we enjoyed our stay at Summer Haze

By Sandy And Family on 26-Jun-2010

We've had our holiday in Woolacombe and plan to be back soon, cause we enjoyed our stay at Summer Haze and all our fun packed sunny days. InCombe Martin, we saw meerkats, wallabies and dinosaurs too. We then saw cheaters and monkeys at Exmoor zoo. We had Great phone down on the beach all of which were within easy reach. And through all the fun and all the zest, we loved the ilfracombe tunnels the best. We will be back.

Winter w/e in cosy cottage

By RHAL (BATH) on 23-Mar-2010

5 of 5
We had a lovely time at the cottage and thanks to Alan for all his help as we had a great day on Saturday following all his suggestions and then an amazing walk on Sunday to the lighthouse. A walk that includes cliffs, woods, moor, streams and fields in one go must be a one off and we had a great time. The cottage was lovely and the wood burning stove was so fantastic that I think I might try and fit one in our play room. We were so much warmer there than we ever are here! We had dinner at the Rock which was great, especially as they let us bring the dog. Another place we would never have found without Alan’s help.
