Overview

About the property

Sleeps 24, in 10 bedrooms, 8 bathrooms (4 ensuite). Spacious & elegant.

The History.

Its origins date back to mediaeval times, but the house was enlarged and completely remodeled in the 1760s to provide the home for the land agent of the neighbouring Hartland Abbey Estate. Workmanship was to exceptionally high standards for the time, including fine paneling to many of the rooms. The house remained remarkably untouched until acquired relatively recently by the present owners who have undertaken its painstaking and sympathetic restoration in 2006/7. Great care has been taken to retain the historic character of the building whilst discreetly incorporating the best modern services and to provide a great sense of contemporary style without the feeling of being ‘too new'!

Ground floor.

Entrance hall with main staircase opening to formal paneled drawing room and dining room, with open fire and wood burning stove respectively. Cellars include an original wine cellar and laundry facilities. The rear hall leads to a large flag-stoned kitchen with sunny breakfast room beyond. French windows open from the breakfast room to the walled terrace for outside dining. There is a boot / utility room, cloakroom and at the rear 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a secondary staircase.

First floor.

There is a large games room with petit-football and pool table and a computer set-up providing wi-fi internet and links to all local attractions and information. Beyond is the reading room facing West out to sea with comfortable sofas on which to curl up with a good book or watch the large screen TV with video/DVD. There are 5 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms, three of which are ensuite.

Second floor.

There are 3 attic rooms and two bathrooms 1 of which is ensuite.

Bedrooms range in style from the grand paneled Georgian rooms to the simple almost rustic and the attic, which has the feel of a good modern barn conversion. All have been carefully designed and are equipped with sumptuous beds. Bathrooms are all newly fitted with top quality German fittings throughout.

In total there are 10 bedrooms (all 6ft doubles or 3ft twins), four of which have an additional single ‘daybed'. There are 8 bathrooms (5 bath / 3 shower), four of which are en-suite.

Games barn.

A great indoor space providing table tennis, basketball and 5-a-side footie. It also has an assortment of toddler play equipment, large screen TV and sound system.

Stunning property and location.

  • 5 of 5

Had everything you could possibly think of, impeccably clean and wonderful bed linen. Could not fault anything. Would certainly recommend - we were a group of 20 adults.

Other Activities:

As well as the beautiful north Devon beaches, activities include surfing, coasteering, fishing and golf.

Take a scenic cycle along the Tarka Trail, an easy ride for all abilities, with a great tea/ice cream shop along the way.

Exciting family days out include The Big Sheep, Crealy and The Milky Way and for the more sedate there are also places of interest such as Hartland Abbey or the fascinating village of Clovelly.

The fascinating Island of Lundy makes a great day trip, famous for Puffins and Deer as well as many Historic Monuments.

Berry House is located on the cliffs approx 1.5 miles from Harland with magnificent views out over the cliffs and ocean. It is 9 miles from Bideford which is the largest town nearby. It is also approx 20 minutes drive from the pretty villages of Appledore and Instow on the estuary.
