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.

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.


Lovely atmosphere, relaxing house
This is the second time I have visited the old police house. This time we had lots of sunshine and really enjoyed lazing on the top deck with prossecco and raspberries; cooking up meals in the sociable kitchen (with ingredients from the shops conveniently 2 minutes away) and watching Netflix and a DVD from the selection. During the day we visited nearby beaches and dunes for long walks, the obligatory icecreams, and excellent fish and chips from over the road (squires are award winning and 16 is super - but closed Sundays). I love waking up in the garden room to the sound of distant seagulls reminding you you are on holiday at the seaside. We also spent an evening playing various board games which was great fun and all provided too. The house is really well equipped for relaxing and feels spacious and happy. Oh and the shower is great - proper powerful and gets the salt of you easily. I will have to come back again to use the lovely claw foot bath next time tho.

An amazing holiday home in a perfect location, it was perfect in every possible way! I loved the garden and the whole d?cor and layout of the house!

This is a really well presented property suitable for all types of groups. The property is spacious and homely, and sits in a convenient location within the town and has some excellent surfing beaches within close proximity. We really enjoyed our time and I would recommend this property to anyone. We will visit again!
