About Alison Tucker

I was born in Bideford and therefore know this beautiful area well. I am so lucky to still be able to live in lovely North Devon. My Husband Andy and I use to live on a farm and enjoyed entertaining the holiday makers we had there. Since then we have been involved in care of the elderly until a couple of years ago. Now we are into renovating an old Victorian house not far from 'The Spinney' bungalow that you will love to stay in!

We have 3 sons & 8 grandchildren, we are lucky they all live locally so we can easily see them and have family time together.

My aim is to offer you good quality accommodation in our wonderful North Devon area and hope you will think I do!

Alison Tucker purchased this bungalow in 2015

Why Alison Tucker chose Bideford

This impressive bungalow provides all your home comforts and hopefully more. Come and enjoy our unique North Devon coast and beautiful countryside. It's located in a fairly exclusive part of Bideford that offers a village nearby, river walks and the 'Tarka Trail'. Bideford is a market town for all the essentials including Morrisons, Asda, Aldi & Tesco. A few minutes drive away is Westward Ho! beach which is flat and therefore safe for younger families with life guards in certain areas, plenty of good parking & lots of coastal walks.

Free unlimited WiFi.

What makes this bungalow unique

'The Spinney' is in a quiet location yet handy for the beach, shops, park, theme parks The Milky Way & The Big Sheep, coastal walks.

The property is all on one level with a lovely large social area. Great for a family holiday.

I respond to enquiries ASAP, which is usually within an hour or two and I treat people how I would like to be treated myself, in a very fair and responsible way. You are welcome to pay by card or you can pay direct and save the service charge which is between 4% & 8%. Please just contact me for Bank details.

Fabulous spacious bungalow in excellent location

  • 5 of 5

Three generations stayed in this fabulous holiday house this July. It is even better than the photos! Lovely kitchen, three nice bedrooms, wonderful conservatory and lots of space to sit outside. The largest bedroom had a second tv so grandad didn't have to watch cbbc with the children! Lots of lovely beaches nearby. This place is an excellent base. Owner, living nearby, very helpful. We'll book here again for another family holiday soon!

Fantastic two weeks. Thank you.

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic two week holiday at The Spinney. It was perfect for us as we were a party of two families but there was plenty of room, and more, for all of us to spread ourselves out. The bedrooms were lovely and big and the kitchen was spacious and clean with everything that we would have had at home – Alison seemed to have thought of everything that a home away from home would need. We were even greeted on arrival with tea, coffee, biscuits and milk in the kitchen, which was lovely as we hadn’t had time to pop to the shops. The bungalow is situated in a quiet location easily accessible to Westward Ho, Bideford and lots of other attractions. We drove to the Northam Burrows beach most days as it was more convenient and very quiet and from there it was only a 5-10 minute walk to Westward Ho for food and a few shops etc. Alison was great – she left us alone but was easy to get in contact with if we needed her which was great. We couldn’t fault it at all and were very sad to leave so looking forward to booking another holiday here again soon!

Lovely bungalow in a lovely area. The perfect base for exploring N. Devon

  • 5 of 5

The Spinney is a spacious 3 bedroom well equipped bungalow in a very nice area near Bideford and Westward Ho! in north Devon.

Ideal for a family or small group self-catering the kitchen has everything you'd need including dishwasher. Washer & dryer in the garage for refreshing your beach/swim wear ;) and with 2 toilet/shower room (1 with bath too) for refreshing yourselves too.

3 Bedrooms are roomy and have good storage so you can unpack properly rather than live out of a suitcase.

The Lounge/dining area & conservatory are lovely, spacious and cosy and the sitting area outside is a real suntrap. Beautiful garden too.

All in all a wonderful place to make a basecamp.

The location is wonderful, not only is it in a very nice peaceful area it is also perfectly situated. You can soon walk to Bideford's Victoria Park. 5 minute drive to the beach at Westward Ho!

A couple minutes by car from Bideford town centre.

Less than a minute to the A39, the main road across north Devon, so options of heading west towards Cornwall (passing attractions such as The Big Sheep, The Milky Way, Clovelly and Hartland along the way) or east towards Barnstaple (the main town in north Devon) for shopping or further options of days out exploring Ilfracombe, Lynton&Lynmouth, Exmoor or further for a dayout at Butlins in Minehead.

Exeter is an hour away and Bristol two hours.

We really enjoyed our stay at The Spinney and look forward to visiting again.

Highly recommended!

Well equipped and comfortable bungalow

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the property in Bideford which is tastefully decorated, spotlessly clean and very comfortable with everything we needed. There was plenty of space for us all to relax including the conservatory which is an ideal space for puzzles and games. We had shopping delivered which worked well. The kitchen had everything we needed for cooking.

We loved Instow beach, Clovelly, Hartland Quay and Bude. We had a lovely day at Rosemore RHS garden. There was plenty to do in the surrounding area and we enjoyed a busy week. The owners were very helpful both before and during our stay.

Car: recommended

Westward Ho! is only a few minutes drive away with its 2 miles of golden sands. Nearby Bideford with its attractive quay has a variety of pubs, restaurants, including Chinese, Indian & fish & chips, plenty of shops, supermarkets & banks. Victoria park, which is great for the children, is only a 15 minute walk away. There are 2 nearby theme parks, The Milky Way and The Big Sheep for great days out. Northam has a up to date swimming pool & at Torrington there is Dartington Crystal glass.

Enjoy a lovely walk along the coastal path beside the river Torridge to Appledore. In fact the coastal path on the North Devon coast is a great experience for those keen walkers.
