This terraced cottage in Braunton sleeps nine people in four bedrooms.

The Old Police House is a terraced cottage in the village of Braunton. The cottage has two double rooms (one with access to the decked area) and a family room upstairs, along with a bathroom. Downstairs, the former cell is now a room with adult bunks and there is also a kitchen with dining area, a utility room and a sitting room.

Outside is an enclosed, rear garden area accessed by steps, with a small lawn and a raised decked area with furniture and barbecue and views over the village. Cars can stop to load and unload directly outside the property, and parking is found in residential streets a two minute walk away or in the 24-hour council pay and display car park, just a four minute walk away. The Old Police House is ideally placed for enjoying the beautiful coastline of this area, as well as the walking, cycling, villages and towns of this lovely part of Devon.


Poor service from sykes cottages and cleanliness
Booked here with sykes cottages have emailed them no response so dont like leaving reveiws but feel i have tobon arrival there was the rubbish from previous tenants the parts of decking were unusable the top of fridge in kitchen was filthy the bath had scum in hadnt been cleaned for months looked like the shower screen was the same we found underwear in one bedroom on the floor the sofa in the living room had choclate and sweets under it as the dog sniffed these out all in cleanliness was very poor

Lovely post lockdown getaway
First trip after lockdown and it was a dream. Lovely house with lots of space and everything you can think of needing in the kitchen! Close to a few different beautiful beaches and good walks nearby. Was very clean and with no direct contact with hosts all was covid secure. Great convenient location right in the centre of town. Will certainly look at getting some space next year when pubs are open :)

Below Standard
I was very shocked to find rubbish from previous Guests left in the garden by the back door. The owner know of our booking but no heating had been on for days so the house took 12 hours to heat up. The towels had seen better days, must have been years old. The house was not cleaned very good, make up on sheets, dirty floors. Would not book this cottage again. Did report it but to date no apologies from owner

Home away from home
The perfect place to relax after a great day surfing- yes, even in September! Easy to wash and hang wetsuits in the garden afterwards. Such a convenient location (for both beach and shops right outside for breakfast!) and cosy space to spend the evenings. Plus I have kitchen envy- they really have everything you need here.

Lovely coastal weekend
Stayed for two nights, visiting the beach a couple of times during our stay. The house is centrally located on a road in the village, with shops and restaurants less than 5 minutes away, but it is still very quiet. House is very well equipped, we cooked while we were there. Garden was a bit cold for sitting out this time of year in the evening- we shall have to come back during the summer!
