The Garden Cottage is located in the hamlet of Kingscott, part of the parish of St Giles in the Wood, not far from the historic town of Torrington. This bustling Devon town in the beautiful North Devon countryside is steeped in Civil War history, of which its local community is still very proud of today. There are also events and re-enactments marking the Civil War battle in Torrington in 1646. Often referred to as ‘Cavalier town’, today Torrington has a great selection of independent shops, pubs, cafes, a pannier market and is also home to Dartington Crystal and RHS gardens of Rosemoor. It’s central location also provides easy access across the border to Cornwall, and to the North Devon coast. The nearest beach is a 30 minute drive away at Westward Ho!, and the pretty coastal villages of Instow and Appledore are not far too.
The garden cottage is always immaculate and the welcome from the hosts is always very warm and helpful.We always look forward to returning to this home from home. In fact we have lost count of the number of times we have stayed at the Garden Cottage which is within easy reach of numerous attractions,in particular RHS Rosemoor Gardens. C Crosley, Mar 2018
