A warm welcome awaits…
Kim and John, along with Ellie the dog and Alfie the elusive cat, would like to offer you a warm welcome to West View Cottage, their 16th century thatched cottage bed & breakfast set in the centre of the beautiful village of Knowstone within easy access of The Exmoor National Park, where you can enjoy fabulous unspoilt views across the Devon countryside. If you like walking then don’t forget your boots as there are many fantastic walks. The nearest beach is only 40-45 mins away.
Our cottage is only a few miles from the North Devon Link road making it easily accessible to the towns of Tiverton or South Molton and also the award winning beaches of Saunton and Croyde.
West View Cottage offers two attractive rooms, one double with sole use of a detached bathroom and one double ensuite room. Both rooms include a full breakfast, whether it’s a simple continental or setting yourself up for the day with the traditional cooked breakfast you won’t be disappointed. Dietary requirements can be catered for, just let us know when you book.
We are perfectly situated 100 yards away from the Masons Arms an award winning village pub and Michelin Star restaurant, where you can enjoy the warm friendly greeting from Sarah and her staff and the stunning food cooked by Mark and his team. The ceiling in the dining room is also worth a look!
We do accept dogs but do point out that we have a dog who is very sociable and a cat who will probably disappear at the sight of another dog!
