About the Owner

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!

Absolutely lovely. Would highly recommend if you want a high quality base to explore

Wow what a lovely bungalow. It's even better than the pictures show. Very quiet location with all the North Devon attractions within easy reach. It really is a great place to return to after hard day holiday making

Alison (the owner) is very welcoming and easy to get hold of should you need to (she lives in the house at the top of the garden) but never intrusive. Would highly recommend and will be back.

A lovely bungalow in a fantastic location.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week at the bungalow at the end of July. Alison was extremely helpful in the build up to the holiday and during the holiday itself. The property was perfectly clean with excellent amenities and a lovely, peaceful garden. Location is perfect for exploring beautiful North Devon. Highly recommended.

Fabulous Bungalow in lovely location

  • 5 of 5

Lovely bungalow, well equipped, comfortable & in peaceful surroundings. Very close to plenty of coastal locations. Did days out to Appledore, Instow, Westward Ho, Ilfracombe etc which are all within a short drive. We walked to Bideford along the coastal path which was very easy. Short walk down the road and there are lovely views over the estuary.

Loved the large, warm conservatory and sitting out watching the birds in the garden.

Owner very friendly. Would def recommend.

From the Owner

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.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Exeter at 50 Miles Nearest Barpub : Durrant House at 400 Metres Nearest Golf : Westward Ho! at 2 Miles Nearest Train : Barnstaple at 10 Miles Nearest Motorway : M5 at 40 Miles Nearest Restaurant : Durrant House at 400 Metres Nearest Beach : Westward Ho! at 2 Miles 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 & 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.
