This immaculately presented property offers spacious accommodation complete with luxurious spa touches and sits in a convenient location close to the town of Bideford.

Sleeping eight guests across four bedrooms, this stylish house has been designed as the perfect base for a restful and relaxing holiday to Devon. Choose how to spend your evenings, whether unwinding in the infrared sauna or recharging your energy with a soothing soak in the private hot tub. Share laughter over antics in the games room, and then get dressed up for a meal out at a nearby pub or restaurant (1 mile). Boasting five-star accommodation, this is a wonderful property for a special time away with friends or family.

Elegant decor and thoughtful attention to detail can be found throughout the entirety of this luxurious property. The bright and stylish kitchen is complemented by a utility room which includes an American-style fridge/freezer, perfect for storing fresh local produce and all the essentials. Cook up a storm, and when you’re ready, step through into the dining area to serve. Enjoy a sit-down meal at the table or celebrate sunny weather by opening the patio doors and stepping outside to dine alfresco. When everyone is finished, if you’re ready for a soft seat then let the dishwasher take care of the plates and head straight through into the cosy lounge. Sink into a sofa and settle down to watch SkyTV or choose a film together. At the end of the night, climb the stairs and retire to one of the beautiful bedrooms for a peaceful night’s sleep. All four of the bedrooms boasts its own TV, so when you wake up, stay in bed a little longer and have a leisurely morning. And if you still don’t feel like leaving the house in the afternoon, stay in and host a tournament in the games room. Have fun challenging each other to games of pool, table football and air hockey. In the garden, sit on the patio with drinks, or sunbathe on the artificial lawn. There’s driveway parking for two cars.

While away a relaxed afternoon learning about the line’s history, discovering the exhibitions, and tucking into homemade cake in the cafe in the carriage. Buy your tickets at The Lundy Shore Office (1.5 miles) for a boat trip to Lundy Island and spend a day exploring the historical monuments and spotting wildlife. For groups with young children, treat them with a trip to The BIG Sheep (2.5 miles), a family-friendly, all-weather attraction. Go for a stroll along the beach at Westward Ho! (3 miles) to feel the sand between your toes and brave a paddle in the waves if the weather is warm enough. Beside the beach, there are also pretty paths to follow that wind their way around Northam Burrows Country Park.

We had the best time here. It felt like a home from home. A few things in the home need to be looked at, but having the additional fridges were so useful. It was spotlessly clean when we arrived. It is on a steep hill, so make sure you are fit if walking about. It is about 20 minutes walk to town, but central for visiting places of interest by car.

We had a lovely week in this property as we were lucky with the weather and it was quiet and peaceful, with a south facing lawn we were able to sunbathe in.

It was clean and had most things we needed, however some of the equipment was broken, the games room was very tired and needs attention, there are repairs that need to take place and instructions from the cooker should be provided. We had an issue with the hot tub but we called and someone came and dealt with it very quickly. I think all this consiRead moredered brings the value for money down. Had these repairs been done before, all the equipment in the kitchen been usable etc then it would be better. Hide
