Property code: 85673

This gorgeous property nestles in a quiet, rural setting just a short drive to the North Devon Coast, has been fitted and furnished to an exceptional standard and provides a perfect base for a relaxed family holiday.

Positioned in a rural position yet within easy reach of the coast, this beautifully contemporary property is perfect for large families and friendship groups of up to eight guests seeking their next big holiday. Discover your surroundings on foot or hop in the car and venture to stunning Widemouth Bay for a traditional day beside the seaside, or navigate the countryside trails to experience what makes North Devon so beautiful. On your return, the hot tub is perfect for stargazing over a tipple, and dining alfresco is a treat when you put together all the delicious produce you’ve picked up on your travels.

Approach via the gravelled drive where you’ll find ample parking then head inside ready to relax in style. The kitchen is chic with its muted cabinetry, central island and range of appliances, and there is a large kitchen for sociable mealtimes. Satisfied from your supper, the lounge is comfortable and inviting with a TV and seating for watching films and chatting about your day. All four bedrooms are tucked away on the first floor, providing a restful sanctuary after all those long days exploring rugged clifftop trails and rolling hills until your feet grow weary. One of the bedrooms has access to a Juliet balcony, a walk-in dressing area and an en-suite shower room, and the remainder share the elegant bathroom and a ground-floor shower room. The impressive garden is a haven for those balmy summer nights soaking in the hot tub or reclining on the furniture with your glass of wine, simply appreciating the quiet surroundings.

Close to the Devon/Cornwall border, you’ll be spoilt for choice of how to fill your itinerary. Bude, 6.5 miles away, has lots to offer thanks to its beautiful sandy beach and treasure trove of beachside attractions. Catch the surf, swim to your heart’s content or arrange a day of coarse fishing for something different. Widemouth Bay, Crackington Haven and Summerleaze Beach are all excellent contenders for a beach day with a difference too, all within 12.5 miles. In terms of attractions, North Devon aims to please with The Big Sheep and The Milky Way Adventure Park within 25 miles, but there are also lots of attractive towns and villages not to be missed. Holsworthy (5 miles) boasts peaceful surroundings, but quintessential Oakhampton (24 miles) acts as a gateway to the romantic wilderness of Dartmoor National Park. Further along the coast, the history-seekers amongst you won’t be able to resist majestic Tintagel, 21 miles away, a sight that’s well worth the drive.

Brilliant all round would definitely recommend, six adults and our 4 months old baby just came home from a 7 day stay at the paddock, we could not fault it. They had thought off everything. Scones, milk and single black bag and all the essentials you would need for your first day was left when we arrived which was amazing to save us running straighRead moret to the shop after a long drive. Sun loungers and beach toys left in the garage. A very well thought out holiday home. We would all return. Hide
