Our first 5-star cottage was named after the lovely Royal Celerity, stable name Rita, one of our race-winning mares. Royal Celerity is occasionally mistakenly called “Royal Celebrity”; while this is incorrect, it is true that this cottage will make you feel like a Hollywood star.

The generously proportioned open plan living area is a real feature of Royal Celerity, with ample space to relax and enjoy the stunning views and each other’s company. If you love cooking, you will love Royal Celerity’s fully equipped kitchen, with an island unit that makes preparing a meal a truly sociable event. The dining area allows for formal and informal dining; if you don’t fancy cooking yourselves, our head chef will be happy to tailor a bespoke private dining menu to tantalise your taste buds.

The lounge area features patio doors which open out onto the large private patio and gardens – perfect for dining al fresco. For cooler nights, there are comfortable leather recliner sofas and a faux fire set into a traditional inglenook fireplace; you can snuggle up with a book, a board game, or to watch a DVD on the widescreen LCD television.
Upstairs, the vast, open-plan bedroom features a luxurious whirpool bath and stunning en suite bathroom, complete with walk in shower and Jack and Jill sinks.

On a warm summer’s day, you can soak up the sunshine, relax with something cold or enjoy a barbecue in your south-facing garden.

Royal Celerity is so beautiful that you may never want to leave. However, if you would like to explore the fabulous surroundings, there is plenty for you to see and do nearby. The South West Coastal Footpath is a short walk from the cottage; from here, you can amble down the coast path into the nearby village of Westward Ho!, enjoy the famous 2-mile stretch of golden sands, indulge in a little seaside retail therapy or treat yourself to something yummy from one of many delicious local eateries.

Of course, there is no better way to end your day exploring the glorious North Devon coastline than with a soak in the whirlpool bath and an indulgent evening relaxing in Royal Celerity. One thing is for sure: once you arrive, you will never want to leave.

The cottage (Royal Celerity) was absolutely beautiful. We enjoyed cooking in the kitchen, relaxing in the Jacuzzi style bathtub and visiting the horses. Impossible to improve, thank you for a wonderful weekend away to celebrate my husband's birthday.  We couldn’t have asked for more.  It really was perfect!
