Enjoying sea views, this luxurious property, with indoor swimming pool, hot tub and sauna, is a great base for exploring the delights of North Devon.

Just a short walk from the seaside village of Westward Ho!, this six-bedroom property sits in an elevated position above the town enjoying magnificent views across Bideford Bay. With two lounges, an indoor pool complex and extensive gardens, this is the perfect property for family gatherings or special celebrations on the North Devon coast. Spend the day on the golden sandy beach, exploring the rock pools and splashing in the surf. Why not book a private group lesson with the local surf school and ride the waves together? Slightly further along the coastline is picturesque Appledore, full of lively pubs and well-regarded eateries. Pick up some freshly-caught fish straight from the fishing boats on the Quay to BBQ for a tasty evening meal.

Set on a quiet residential road, this impressive property offers luxurious accommodation with oodles of space to relax and unwind in. Bathed in natural light from the large picture windows, sink into one of the sumptuous sofas in the lounge to chat about the highlights of your day or watch a family film on the TV. For quieter moments, curl up in the cosy second lounge, where exposed beams and wood burner create a welcoming space to sit and read a book or catch up on the news. The magnificent kitchen is a cook's paradise equipped with everything you may need to produce simple suppers or celebratory meals. There is room for everyone around the elegant dining table to share leisurely breakfasts or sociable suppers. After a day of surfing or bodyboarding, stretch out aching muscles in the incredible indoor swimming pool, complete with hot tub and sauna. Heading upstairs at the end of the day you will find four well-appointed bedrooms. The master suite is an indulgent space with a king-size bed, lounge area, en-suite bathroom and sea-facing private balcony. A spacious double room benefits from an en-suite shower room and the two twin bedrooms share the family bathroom. There is a further ground-floor double bedroom and separate WC and another twin bedroom on the second floor. Share an al fresco meal in your private garden enjoying spectacular sunsets and extensive views across to Lundy Island.

A really lovely house with a great view of the bay. It was a shame that the view would have been so much better if it were not for the obscuring trees.
