Luxury holiday cottages with pool in North Devon


The Old Rectory Cottages consist of six luxurious self-catering holiday cottages. Set within 4 acres of secluded gardens of the former Rectory, offering peace and privacy within the historic village of Kings Nympton. All cottages have comfortable, spacious lounges, benefiting from well equipped kitchens, modern bathrooms with relaxing, comfortable bedrooms. Subtle fabrics are used to enhance the rooms and furniture and all properties benefit from garden views which lend to the calm and restful feel to each property.

On arrival, you will feel yourself relax amidst the peace and calm of the four 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 ponds are home to a variety of hand reared and wild ducks and our younger guests can enjoy some time in the play area with climbing tower, slide and sand pit or the outdoor table tennis.

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 and bedrooms with crisp cotton linen and deep feather quilts.

All properties benefit from garden views which lend to the calm and restful feel to each property. You can enjoy cosy winter evenings in front of the TV or listening to some music with most cottages having wood burners. In the summer why not make the most of the grounds and enjoy the outdoors using one the barbecues, making the perfect day in the calm of this rural village.

We look forward to welcoming you to The Old Rectory Cottages.
