Kala’s Cottage is named for one of our very own race horses, Kala Fair. And, like its namesake, we think that this cottage is something really quite special.

The fully equipped kitchen area is sleek and stylish; food lovers can cook together, dine out in one of many local eateries, or enjoy a private dining experience with our skilled head chef. On sunny days, you can open the patio doors and dine al fresco as the sun goes down; in cooler weather, there is no better way to end the day than curled up on one of the sumptuous sofas in front of the fire.

Upstairs, the open plan bedroom features a Parisian super king-size bed and views over the ocean. The ultimate in indulgent romance, this beautifully styled room features a stunning roll-top bath, Jack and Jill sinks, walk in shower and separate WC. French windows lead to the luxury balcony, complete with a two-person hot tub which has been perfectly positioned for sunsets and unrivalled views of the ocean.

After a tranquil night’s sleep, helped by zero light pollution and no passing traffic, you will wake up to the gentle sound of birdsong and, on some days, the sound of the ocean below. Part of the cottage's charm is being able to start the day collecting eggs straight from the hen coop for breakfast, before sipping a coffee on the balcony overlooking the paddocks as you feel the stresses of daily life drift away.

On a sunny day, there's no finer place to enjoy the view than from the cottage's private garden. However, if you do fancy exploring the area, Kala's Cottage is just a five-minute walk from the South West Coastal Footpath to Westward Ho!, where you can feel the sand between your toes, indulge in a little retail therapy, or just soak up the atmosphere of this quintessential seaside village.

However you choose to spend your romantic holiday in North Devon, we're sure you'll love this glorious luxury holiday cottage.

Just a thank you for our wonderful wedding and stay at Kala’s, you truly have a beautiful place there. Special thanks to Lisa and Richard who were absolutely brilliant on the day, don’t think we could have managed it without them. Also a massive thanks to Nigel, who not only cooked and served a superb meal but he stayed on a fair bit later while my wife struggled to get our son to sleep. Feb 2019

My stay was really enjoyable and the cottage was more than i'd ever envisage. Your hospitality and assistance's beyond my expectations and I thank you for that. Whilst the weather did not help, my visit to Duckhaven Stud and The Kave was an experience I will never forget, along with the wedding will be forever quite unforgettable. Don A Feb 19

Thank you so much for really spoiling us, this is probably the best cottage we have ever stayed in, those views are incredible as is your attention to detail.  Lucy and Dan Feb 2019

We had the most wonderful romantic stay in Kala's cottage, the finishing touches are exceptional, this has to be one of best places we have ever stayed in and are already planning our next stay with you.
