Hidden next to the owners beautiful villa, overlooking a lush green valley, step into this tardis-like gem to discover a spacious and elegant interior of boutique hotel standard. Enjoy stargazing on clear nights from the atrium or in your very own private woodland hot tub. Unwind with a good book on soft leather cream settees. A central dining room that seats up to 6 is perfect to spend an evening with friends. (there are plenty of B&B's around if friends are joining you for a special celebration). Take breakfast in the sunny kitchen or out on the patio where you might just hear the rumble of the little branch line train as it winds its way through the valley below. A love seat positioned in your own garden catches the evening sunshine and is the place to share a bottle. Your own boutique suite awaits in the Kingsize bedroom with its own en-suite rain shower next door. Bring your hiking boots as this area of Devon is great walking country and you have the choice of two National parks to visit - Dartmoor and Exmoor both within easy reach. If lazing on golden sands is more appealing, head north to the beaches of the North coast - just 45 mins car journey. Woolacombe, Saunton Sands, and Croyde all great for surfing or sun worshipping. Browse the shops of North Devon's main market town Barnstaple where a visit to the Pannier Market is well worth your time. If real ale is your tipple then a trip on the Rail Ale will suit you down to the ground - jump on at Umberleigh just over a mile away and enjoy the little branch line train that starts at Exeter and finishes in Barnstaple stopping for you to try some of the best Real Ales in the local villages along the way.

Super relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here last week and truly had the best description of the place was on point and in fact doesn't do it justice compared to what you actually get. We were overwhelmed by how tranquil the place was an how much we got.

The property itself is well maintained and so spacious. There was loads of nice added extras like a dishwasher and washing machines and dryers which was lovely to have in case we needed them.

We arrived to have a beautifully prepared hamper of bread, drinks, wine chocolates and cake. The cakes, chocolate and bread was to die for. The owners had even left instruction of where they got everything from, in case we wanted to go and buy some ourselves.

The welcome booklet was full of useful information about the property, local beaches and things like where to get food. All of this was welcomed information, especially since this was our first time in Devon.

We visited the town of Barnstaple which was about 40 minutes away but definitely worth a look around as there are such a wide variety of shops to choose from. We went kayaking on the river torridge after seeing a leaflet that was left in the property cabinet and also visited the zoo. There is so much to do and so little time to do it in. I would also highly recommend going to Fat Belly Fred's seafood in Barnstaple, not only is the meaning behind the name entertaining but it is also a wonderful fresh seafood restaurant.

The house also came with a bbq which we took full advantage of and had a wonderful bbq while enjoying the views.

As for the hot tub, I don't even know where to start. It was so lovely to sit back and relax listening to the local wildlife and enjoying the views.

The owners were also such lovely people they acted like family, they were always on hand to answer any questions that we had and help us if we had any queries.

I can't explain how perfect this holiday was and would truly recommend it for anyone who wants a holiday away from all the hussle and bussle of everyday life.
