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.


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!

Wonderful walks every morning. What a beautiful house!
This house feels like home, we want to move here. Spacious, clean and beautifully equipped, with a large kitchen diner fitting us all in, including the dog. The house is so well situated with the park up the road, the river walk 5 minutes away and the Tarka trail conveniently close. We walked from the property on all these paths and up the hill at the back of the house where we had stunning views across Braunton Burrows. Other days we drove to Braunton Burrows or Saunton Sands or Crow point, all 10 minutes drive, and wandered for hours taking in the wildlife, the plants and picking mushrooms and mussels for dinner. We'll be back next year for sure.

What a wonderful house!! The equipment is extensive (baking equipment/games/bodyboards/rock-pooling nets and buckets/Wifi soNetflix on the TV/bluetooth speaker.... Fantastic surfing in Saunton Sands. I bought a very good cheap wetsuit at the corner-shop from shopkeeper Nigel which was great! Also hired some from the beach at Saunton - ded easy. Chippy is brill. Coop 1 min. Totally Awesome!! Great location + second toilet looks new and is great (there were nine of us). Have booked again!!
