Nestled in 20 acres of shared woodland and meadows, these delightful holiday properties (references HDDK and HNZ) enjoy use of a tennis court and a games room, ideal for that family holiday.Orchard House (ref HDDK) is a traditional barn, converted into a stunning, spacious and beautifully furnished countryside retreat. Relax in the spacious, light and airy lounge, with a modern central wood-burning stove. The large, stylish kitchen with double range and granite worktops is the place to gather for a leisurely breakfast, or escape into the cosy study with its 40” plasma TV and Playstation 3. There are four spacious en-suite double bedrooms furnished with designer fabrics and each one with a unique theme - French, rustic Mexican, mahogany sleigh bed, and one with a contemporary nickel bedstead. On summer evenings, dine al fresco on the long stone patio running the length of the barn, with patio table and chairs looking out over uninterrupted views.Chapman House (ref hnz) is a superb, spacious conversion of an 18th-century stables and coach house with breathtaking views of the North Devon coastline out to Lundy Island, and beyond to the Atlantic Ocean. The living area on the first floor takes full advantage of sea views with a large balcony opening from the spacious kitchen/dining room - ideal to enjoy a lazy breakfast or relax and watch magnificent sunsets. Completed to a very high specification, the holiday house is very comfortable and has beamed ceilings and a cosy wood-burning stove. The large, secluded, lawned gardens include a chidren’s play area. Both properties enjoy shared use of a games room with pool table, table tennis and darts. Guests are also welcome to explore the 20-acre woodland and pasture (with sheep).With sea views, this is an enchanting holiday location with a private, 30-minute walk to a secluded pebble and sand beach and the spectacular South West Coastal Path (access only available from 2nd Feb - 31st Aug), where a chain of magnificent cliffs stretches along the Heritage Coast to Hartland Point. A pretty, 60-minute walk across fields leads to a little-known sandy beach (Porledge Beach), which is a wonderful sun trap and well off the tourist map, making it usually very quiet, even on the busiest summer day. The famous surfing beaches of Westward Ho! (4 miles) and Bude are an easy drive. Bikes can be hired to explore the nearby Tarka Trail and there is sailing, water skiing, golf and riding locally. Numerous NT properties in the area as well as the RHS gardens at Rosemoor and Docton Mill. Visit Hartland Abbey and the charming village of Clovelly (6 miles).
