Fans of the 70s – and sandy beaches – will love this 70s makeover of a family bungalow, not far from Braunton Burrows (a fascinating UNESCO site).
Behind its neat exterior, with glimpses of the dunes from the back garden, the clock has been turned back: wallpapers are boldly geometric, colours vintage; ornaments and paintings, crockery, and furniture all hark back.
It’s fun, it’s quirky, and it’s the perfect bolthole for you and surfing friends or family to submerge yourselves in 70s nostalgia. Watch Starsky & Hutch (on a big screen), listen to vinyl Abba, go the whole hog and dress-up while ‘Abigail’ rustles up a buffet in the kitchen.
Grab your board and head for Saunton Sands and there’s the Tarka Trail to be cycled too. Then home to hang your wetsuits and barbecue among the hydrangeas with a sunset backdrop.
