Property Description

Overlooking a secluded valley, just 8 miles from Woolacombe’s long sandy beach, these three superb holiday properties each enjoy their own enclosed garden area, and are peacefully set down a mile long made-up private road. Close to the owner’s home, they have been imaginatively and beautifully converted from former farm buildings, incorporating glass frontages to take advantage of the lovely views over the stream-bordered paddocks which lead to beautiful woodland walks. Children love getting to know the bunch of friendly animals, which include miniature ponies and donkeys, llamas, pet sheep and small flock of traditional breed hens.
Perfect for a relaxing holiday, the area holds a wealth of attractions. The ancient town of Barnstaple, with its Domesday associations, lies just 5 miles distant. Here the visitor can find a good selection of shops, restaurants, museums, a theatre and various sporting facilities, not to mention a 14th-century parish church, a fascinating Heritage Centre and a daily Pannier Market. For watersports enthusiasts, the beautiful beaches at Woolacombe, Croyde Bay and Saunton Sands are a must, affording some of the finest windsurfing in Devon, as well as being a haven for sunbathers and sandcastle builders. Wonderful walking and riding can be enjoyed in the nearby Exmoor National Park (6 miles), where red deer roam the rugged moors and magnificent sea views can be admired from lofty cliffs and headlands.
Among the many places to visit within a 5 mile radius are Arlington Court (NT), with its collection of model ships and Victorian accessories, and Marwood Hill Gardens, complete with its string of lakes, rare shrubs and exotic trees. The resorts of Ilfracombe, Combe Martin, Lynton and Lynmouth are also easily accessible, each offering its own blend of seaside charm. Golf and sailing, 8 miles. Shops 5 miles, pub 3 miles.

This charming and imaginative conversion is the end one of three cottages (adjoining Woodland View) and offers stunning views across the valley. Spacious open-plan living/dining room with beamed ceiling and well-equipped kitchen area with stable door to patio and garden. Stairs to half-landing: Double bedroom. Bathroom with toilet. First floor: Two twin bedrooms, each with en-suite shower room with toilet.

Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. The property was very well appointed, with fresh flowers in every room. The owners were extremely helpful, but unobtrusive and the cream tea and bottle of wine on arrival were most appreciated. June 2012.
  2. This is ideally placed for all the local beaches and facilities in Barnstaple, the nearest beach is 10 mins away by car which was fine for us. Its a really good location for families as it is placed far away up a private track so you don’t worry about traffic (let alone see or hear any).
