Hollerday Cottage is approached from a no- through- lane and is located at the start of the Bridlepath to Hollerday Hill. Sitting within its own plot with an imposing, crenelated, low stone wall around, a wooden, gothic-style front gate with stone gateposts opens onto a tarmac path.
The path runs the length of the front of the house, with established shrubs and flowers in retained beds on both sides. At one end a wooden gate leads into the back garden; to the other end is a gravelled patio area with space for table and chairs.
A slate step leads to the original wood front door, which sits under the porch which is roofed with decorative terracotta tiles. There is trellising to both sides and a lantern light.

A natural path leads up the left of the garden, with hedging and mature trees creating a copse and boundary to the left. Moving upward, the garden is a delight of mature shrubs and flowers, including swathes of ornamental daisies, hyacinth bluebells and forget-me-nots. Fruit trees, fruit bushes and a mature strawberry patch are also featured amongst the riot of planting. Views across Lynmouth Bay to Foreland Point emerge, along with wide-reaching countryside and village views
At the top of the garden is a large summerhouse/storage shed, positioned to take full advantage of the beautiful views, with windows to the front and toward the sea. From here, one can look down over the village of Lynton, Watermouth Valley and over Lynmouth Bay toward Foreland Point.
The natural path continues on the other side of the garden and descends through apple trees, flowers and a vegetable patch, to the hedge and guard-rail to the rear of the house.
