The
Experience

What was once the Pickwell Estate’s 16th-century chapel has been carefully transformed into a cosy and characterful bolthole. Everything a holidaying couple could possibly need is here, but the Chapel has a surprise in store – a private decked area off the bedroom with chairs, party lights and an outdoor bath big enough for two.

If you can pull yourself away from your pristine retreat, there are six acres of rambling estate gardens to explore; have a game of tennis or croquet, fire up the barbecue, chat to other guests. Wilder areas of the garden include a firepit with wooden benches and overhead parachute. The manor house has a coffee room and useful laundry/drying room too.

Walk the 20 minutes (either cross-country or by the road) to reach Georgeham’s two good pubs Rock Inn and the King’s Arms – and a shop.

Location

The neighbourhood

You’re surrounded by fields and narrow country lanes, and a stroll downhill reveals Putsborough Beach: 2 miles of golden sands with Woolacombe at the far end. The surf mecca of Braunton, 4 miles away, is the place to hire boards and stock up on supplies. You can be in Ilfracombe in 20 minutes to catch the ferry to Lundy, but if you’d rather stay on terra firma, the wilds of Exmoor are a 15-mile drive inland.

Local points of interest from Simon & Julia Hawthorne

  • We are lucky enough to be only a 5min (depending on traffic) drive from Putsbourgh beach. This amazing sandy beach stretches 2.5miles to Woolacombe beach. These & nearby Croyde beach are a must visit
  • Another nearby beach is Lee bay. This is a great one for rock pools and at low tide you can take the smugglers path through the rocks to a hidden sandy beach. As this beach is not golden yellow sand and hidden away it rarely gets busy.
  • We are just off the coastal path, so loads of amazing walks along cliffs and beaches
  • Activities on our doorstep: Surfing, Stand Up Paddleboarding, wild swimming, coasteering and so much more.....
  • You are spoilt for choice when it comes to eating out. We have two great pubs in the village that do superb food. Or a more alfresco style option is the amazing Sri Lankan curry at nearby Barricane beach.

Introducing

Simon & Julia Hawthorne

The estate is owned by two families, the Elliots and the Bakers. They’ve gradually transformed the manor and estate buildings into a range of quirky, comfortable places to stay. The emphasis is on sustainability, including biomass boilers, bore hole water and waste recycling. The estate’s profits fund the Pickwell Foundation, which gives grants to climate change and refugee charities. You’ll be looked after by friendly managers Simon and Julia.
