A dog friendly authentic, cosy town house that sleeps 6. A perfect base for a stay in Bideford & beyond
Daisy Cottage Bideford
This is going to be interesting as I’ve personally stayed here (Feb 2023) before even knowing that I might own Bideford.com!
About Daisy Cottage
Daisy Cottage is a townhouse situated on the North side of Bideford.
It sleeps 6, with two double beds, two singles and we even spotted that the sofa in the front room is actually a sofa bed too.
The front room is “cosy”, it has a whopping huge smart TV and a table in the middle ideal for puzzles, card games or eating pizza. There is a dining room with chairs for 6 and a large oval table. The kitchen is well equipped (way too many plates, bowls etc for just 6 people) and it had everything we needed and more. The microwave is in the pantry, along with a dishwasher, plus a washing machine and bowls for the dog(s).
There is a show and a modern bathroom upstairs, oh and the fridge/freezer is hiding in the kitchen cupboard (you’ll find it).
There is a small garden out the back, perfect if the dog needs a pee during the middle of the night, or to lock the parents out there if they have misbehaved (true story).
Parking is street parking. We were able to park a huge XLWB van on the same street once during our stay, but there are loads of free street parking places available and lots of side roads nearby to lose even a huge van overnight.
Near By Amenities
Morrisons is just a 4-minute walk around the corner, the skateboard park is even closer. Each morning I would leave with the dog and walk the entire circuit of Bideford, including the Long Bridge. The park is a few minutes way down the back streets, just be warned the hills get steep in Bideford, so pick your walks carefully if you can’t cope with steep inclines.
As I had to remind the family, Bideford is not a 3rd world country. Morrisons is just minutes away, so are two petrol stations, Dominos delivers here, Aldi, Asda, Mc Donalds and even SrewFix are 12 minutes away.
As Daisy Cottage is on the North side of Bideford, getting on to the A39 is super easy. Appledore, Westward Ho!, all the beaches, the Milyway and beyond are all a stone’s throw away (Bude is not that far down the road either!).
Our favourite place to eat in North Devon is the Depot Eatery (Ilfracombe EX34 8NY, 11 out of 10 stars) and that was just 32 minutes-ish away in the van when we stayed here.
Twice we went to “Mr Chips” (6 The Quay, Bideford EX39 2HW) and then quickly drove over to Instow to watch the sunset (highly recommended, but expect to be asked where you got the chips from by people walking by in Instow).
Expect a few creaks from the floor and the central heating system likes to gargle a bit.
Before you arrive remember there is a speed camera on the hill and the only grumble is that the front room seats 4 adults, so if there are 5 or more of you, it’ll be a “cosy” squeeze (it is a cottage after all…).
We found it an amazing base to stay from to enjoy Bideford and further afield. Would definitely go back again.
PS. There was cake when we arrived. I ate it all. It was amazing (no one else knew about this ssssshhhhhhh).
