Situated in 'The Little White Town' of Bideford, this Georgian house offers luxurious accommodation. Sitting in its own private gardens, and just a short stroll of pubs, restaurants and quayside.

A stunning house for up to 12 people, accommodated across six bedrooms, this magnificent property offers a large party unrivalled space to spread out. It boasts three separate living areas for maximum space and comfort, as well as a games room with facilities to excite and entertain kids and adults alike! The independent shops and pretty cafes of Bideford are under a mile away, which is ideal for ease and convenience, and the golden sand of Westward Ho! beach is a mere 2.5-mile drive west. Enter the property, where you'll be welcomed in by the grand entrance hall. For an evening in altogether, the open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner should be your meeting place. Here you can take turns to prepare meals in the well-equipped kitchen, which is a pleasure to cook in, before sitting down at the stylish oval dining table to toast to a fantastic holiday. For those who have the night off from cooking, take advantage of the sofas, to watch TV or chat to the rest of the group. The house also has two further living spaces, a bright lounge for relaxing in after dinner, as well as a lounge/library with traditional decor and an open fire. Put another log on the fire, browse the shelves, and choose a book from the wide selection on offer to curl up with. When you're ready for bed, climb the majestic staircase to one of the elegant bedrooms, each individually decorated and with either an en-suite bath or shower room – so there will be no long lines for the bathroom in the morning. Enjoy a lazy shower or bath, then head to the terrace for breakfast, via the dining area's French doors. Take care on the steps down to the lawn, where you can bask in the sun beside the small pond and water feature, while something tasty sizzles on the BBQ.

The house is beautiful and very well equipped. I have no idea how they have been able to remove every trace of dust in such a large house.
