Bask in the sunshine on the long, golden beach at Westward Ho! when you stay at this newly built holiday home on the outskirts of Bideford in Devon. Swim, surf and play games on the famous beach, which is just 3 miles from this stylish property. Nestled in a tranquil spot, within attractive gardens and with its own hot tub, the four-bedroom retreat sleeps up to eight guests and has been carefully finished to ensure a high level of comfort. Ideal for an extended family or perhaps two families on a Devon break together, the stylish property makes a great base from which to explore the countryside and coast.

Pull up onto the private drive, open the front door and step inside to discover a home with a creative, reverse-level design. Leave your walking gear or flip flops in the hall then find four bedrooms all at this level. These include a super-king-size bedroom with en-suite shower room and a door opening to the outside space, a king-size bedroom, and a twin bedroom that can be arranged a super-king-size if discussed at the time of booking. All the bedrooms have Smart TVs. There is also a family bathroom and a bedroom with a small double bed. Make your way upstairs to the chic, open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner, where light pours in through enormous windows. Stoke up the wood burner on chilly nights and lay the table in the dining area for lively meals together. Find the kitchen, with all its modern fittings, provides everything you require to help you whip up tasty meals with the fresh, local produce you have bought. Make yourself a fresh cup of coffee in the machine then perch at the breakfast bar on the island as you enjoy it. Find you have a dishwasher, washing machine and tumble dryer to make your break as easy as possible. Spill out into the garden with your family and friends. Rinse off under the outside shower after days on the beach. Bubble in the hot tub, grill supper on the BBQ and sit around the fire pit as the sun goes down. Find parking for four cars at the house.

This property is unbelievable. All the equipment is top of the range and the hot tub was great on an evening to relax. Quality family time over the Christmas period. The house was also decorated for Christmas which was done very tastefully. We are already looking at booking again.

Nice spot with a sense of space and peace. The building is very well finished and is really comfortable. It is fully fenced, so your kids and dog can't wander into the road. As others have said, the hot tub is great, I would add that the beds are very comfortable and the bathrooms are particularly nice for a holiday let.

The house was absolutely stunning, it seems like no expense was spared. Hot tub was huge, in general it was a really sociable space to relax and catch up with friends. I have been organising the girls trips for 10 years and this was by far the nicest place we have stayed. The welcome hamper was also a really nice touch. Thank you for a great stay!
