About the property

5 bedroom luxury house sleeping up to 10. Located within easy reach of beaches.

Pine Lodge is a bright and spacious 5 bedroom house with wonderful coastal views stretching from the estuary to Saunton and even Lundy Island in the distance. The house, which has a beautiful home-away-from-home atmosphere, enjoys plenty of charm and character. Totally refurbished, the house is perfect for groups of friends, large or multiple families.

Pine Lodge is conveniently located close to many of North Devon's popular towns, villages and beaches, as well as Exmoor and several award-winning attractions. Barnstaple is only a short drive from the house and features a range of shops, supermarkets, restaurants, a theatre, a multi-screen cinema and a leisure centre.

Sleeping up to 10 plus 2 small children, Pine Lodge is bright and spacious and many of the tastefully decorated bedrooms enjoy lovely views of the countryside and North Devon coastline.

Throughout the house there are are three bathrooms, as well as a handy ground floor cloakroom, which is an added bonus for large groups staying at Pine Lodge. Like the other rooms in the house, all of the bathrooms have been fitted to a high standard with quality furniture.

The well-equipped kitchen/breakfast room has a cranberry Range Master range cooker, which is highlighted against the slate worktops and slate tiled floor.

The charming lounge which has a wood burning stove set in a Minster fireplace, seats 10 on large comfortable leather sofas and cosy tub chairs. As for wining and dining, the dining room with open fireplace, offers plenty of space and also seats 10 around the large dining room table.

Pine lodge, which is tucked away, but by no means is isolated, is approached via a private tree lined driveway in the village of Bickington, and is situated within 5 to 10 minutes walk of two pubs, and an Old English Inn (which serves all meals, including breakfast).

The pretty village of Instow, which has a beach with sand dunes and a variety of pubs serving food, is within a 10 minute drive, and the larger beach at Westward Ho! is less than a 20 minute drive away. These beaches and Barnstaple town can all be accessed by bus, which stops every 10 minutes at the bus stop that is only a 5 minute walk from the house.

Pine Lodge backs on to open fields where a public footpath allows you to enjoy short walks and the lovely views. There is a small park with children's' play area just 5 minutes walk away. The nearby scenic and car free Tarka Trail winds its way to Instow and beyond along the river bank providing a safe, level and easy cycle or walking route. Delicious refreshments provide a welcome break along the route at the Fremington Quay cafe, which was once a railway station. Bicycles can be hired locally next to Barnstaple railway station or at Fremington Quay.

The popular surfing beaches of Saunton, Croyde and Woolacombe are only half an hour away by car. Also, easily reached is Exmoor National Park with stunning views of the moors, picnic areas and lazy rivers and streams, where cream teas are readily available.

Portmore driving range and golf course is 5 miles away and the well-known golf links of Westward Ho! is within a 20 minute drive. Barnstaple has an excellent tennis and leisure centre offering tennis, swimming, badminton, squash and other indoor activities for those rainy days. Barnstaple also has 10-pin bowling available at Lets Go Bowling. Other activities for children include The Big Sheep, which is a 15 minute drive, and the Milky Way that can be accessed in about 30 minutes. A wide range of leaflets about local attractions is located at the house.

Amazing House in lovely location

  • 5 of 5

There were 10 adults and we stayed in this amazing house over new year. It had everything we needed and was comfortable and warm and enough room for all of us to sit around the table in the dinning room and in the lounge. The kitchen is really well equipped and the views were lovely. It is in walking distance of Barnstaple and the bus stop is at the end of the bridle path , (which was a bit tricky because of the wind and rain we had and you definitely need a tourch. )We went to a few of the local pubs and we're made very welcome. We spent new year in The Old Barn and had a great time. The food at the Pelican fish and chip restaurant is lovely.

Would definitely recommend to family and friends.

Owner's Response: Many thanks for your 5* review, we are so pleased that you found Pine Lodge comfortable and well equipped. The lane(bridle path) is rather dark in winter, there are torches in the house which can be used as long as they are replaced on the fire extinguishers in case they are needed. We hope you have better weather when hopefully you will visit us again. Paul and Trixie.

Home from home.

  • 5 of 5

Pine Lodge is a lovely, clean, tidy, cosy and well decorated house. The sitting room was smaller than expected from the photo but nevertheless quite adequate and comfortable. My mum (97) loved the downstairs room with en suite and lovely view of sheep grazing and the estuary. The games room was brilliant for children and adults alike and a big bonus was that it was accessible from the house. We felt the owners took good care of us, increasing the heating when they noticed, although in another country, that the outside temperature in Devon had dropped. We enjoyed a lovely home from home Christmas.

Very and spacious, clean, confortable

  • 5 of 5

The house was more than big enough for our party of 9 and well equipped to meet the needs of everyone from a 6 month old baby to 70 year old grandparents. There was everything one could possibly need to cook and plenty of cutlery and crockery. The garage was very useful for storing bikes and the garden was beautiful and gave plenty of room for children to let off steam. The living room was a comfortable and cosy place to sit in the evening. There were lots of thoughtful touches such as books and games.
