On top of a hill, surrounded by a wooded valley, this large Victorian house has room for everyone. Spread out in large living rooms flooded with light, hunker down by the open fire after a day on the surf at sandy Woolacombe (just a ten-minute ride away) or just laze on the lawns with sunny views down to Lee. There’s a long oak table in the kitchen for big brunches and group dinners. Outside there’s also a gas barbecue and another huge table to fit everybody, so warmer evenings are huge fun. An extra couple can have the private Bothy, with its own wood-burner, all to themselves.With the rock pools of Lee Bay, the South West Coastal path and a great village pub all minutes away you won’t really need the car. Sunsets are glorious too, so let the children tear about while you open a bottle and find a seat in the garden.
