This stylish and impressive Victorian villa sits in a residential road in the heart of Bideford, affectionately known as the “Little White Town” it’s an easy and convenient base from which to explore the fabulous beaches and spectacular coastline of North Devon.

This Victorian villa could be the ideal destination for your next family gathering. With celebratory features, like a grand dining room and a hot tub within an enclosed garden, plus five bedrooms sleeping ten guests, this house will keep surprising you. And, set in the heart of Bideford, a historic port town on the North Devon coast, you'll be able to take your party onto the beach, too.

Arrive at this grand Victorian house and you're greeted by the romantic front garden. The terraced house extends back from this elegant facade, and the interior is spacious and light filled. Enter into the grand hallway, complete with stained glass windows. Head through into a cosy lounge with Victorian features like high ceilings and a gorgeous original fireplace. The kitchen is the perfect space to enjoy rustling up a big family meal and the dining room, with its elegant traditional furniture and view of the garden, will provide an inspiring setting for a few family speeches. A further breakfast room, full of character and cheery decor, offers another option for the morning. Bedrooms abound in this property. On the first floor, up the grand Victorian staircase, you'll find two super king-size bedrooms, both with unique fireplaces and exquisite details, and one even has a stunning four-poster bed, making it the master suite you'll have to fight over. Two charming twin rooms and a third super-king round out the bedroom selection, with plenty of bathrooms for everyone, too. Head outside to enjoy the sea air in your own enclosed lawn garden. With a lovely terraced eating area and a BBQ, plus that tempting hot tub, you won't want to leave this restful, sociable space.

But if you start hearing the call of the sea, head west to the stunning, popular resort of Westward Ho!, a 3-mile walk or drive from your front door. With carousel amusements, seaside shops, and a vast, sandy beach, this is where you'll really get to soak in the holiday fresh air. You can even fit in some surfing lessons — there's a surf school right on the dunes. From here, you can join the South West Coast Path, which winds around this rugged and beautiful stretch of shoreline.

A home from home. This property caters for everyone. Great facilities - plenty of cooking equipment (including a crepe maker!), children ( stair gates, high chair, games), hot tub, games tables. Living room is perfect in the evening with a roaring fire. Cannot thank the owners enough for our stay, with all the little touches ( cream tea on arrival,Read more goodies for the dogs) we felt at home from the moment we walked in the door. Thank you again xx Hide

Amazing house with great old features.

A perfect and beautiful house chosen for 10 of us to celebrate my 40th birthday. Excellent communication throughout and a lot of thought put into making our experience enjoyable. This included a cream tea being left ready and milk in the fridge to having the hot tub already on. The house and rooms were absolutely stunning and made up beautifully. ARead moret no point did we feel cramped due to the number of rooms there. The location was also spot on with everything close by. Definitely recommended! Hide
