Cottages from the pond

Kings Nympton, Umberleigh, North Devon.


"Twixt the moors" and near the stunning North Devon coastline

In the heart of the former Devon Village of the year, Kings Nympton, sits The Old Rectory Cottages.

Set between the thatched village pub and Saxon church, this is the perfect setting for seven luxurious listed holiday cottages, furnished to provide luxurious holiday accommodation.

On arrival, and after a personal welcome, you will feel yourself relax amidst the peace and calm of the five acre landscaped garden or enjoy the afternoon in our wonderfully warm swimming pool with sun terrace overlooking the patchwork of fields and rural views. Two duck ponds are home to our hand reared ornamental ducks that will feed from your hand with a little coaxing. For our younger guests, a play area with tree house, sand pit and toys are provided.

Each cottage is centrally heated, luxuriously and thoughtfully furnished and decorated with your comfort and relaxation in mind, fully equipped kitchens and spotless bathrooms complement cosy living areas with most having log fires and bedrooms with crisp cotton linen and deep feather quilts. Pictures by local artists adorn the walls and the award winning local blacksmith has honed the ironwork throughout.

Full TV entertainment and music systems alongside books, CDs, DVD library and glossy magazines ensure cosy winter evenings, or in summer, pick from the selection of herbs from the organic garden and enjoy your complementary barbecue, making the perfect day in the calm of this rural village.

Meet the owner

Stephanie Atkinson

Hello, I am Stephanie Atkinson, my husband Derek and I are lucky enough to own and run the Old Rectory Cottages in rural North Devon. I love looking after our cottages and our guests. Now in our tenth year I have thoroughly enjoyed developing and refurbishing the complex. I am very proud of what it is today. It is a real pleasure to see guests return year on year. I am very hands on and always available to help with a query or advise on days out or suggest local eateries to visit.
