This remarkable coastal property has been fitted and furnished to a delightful standard, offering the perfect base for a family retreat with the beach within walking of your door step.

An idyllic coastal retreat accessed via its very own gated driveway is perfectly situated in an elevated position taking advantage of far reaching views over Bideford Bay, the Bristol Channel and towards Lundy Island. A short walk to the picturesque seaside village of Westward Ho!, known for its beautiful beach and unique pebble ridge which links to Northam Burrows Country Park. The beach offers lots of free entertainment for children whether it is looking in the rock pools, playing in the surf, building sand castles or flying kites. The village also has an array of restaurants, bars, shops, cafes, amusements and also a championship golf course. There is much to see and do in the area with attractions which include The Big Sheep, The Milky Way and Watermouth Castle.

Entering the property from the parking area down a number of external stairs and entering the property through the large enclosed rear garden where you are met by the spacious lounge area which allows you to pull back the bi folding doors and let the children roam free, from here you can also access the private hot tub with breath-taking views. This will allow you to enjoy a glass or two of bubbles whilst taking in those breath-taking views across the bay. If you decide to stay in and cook a meal there is a large dining room to cater for all as well as a well-equipped kitchen with an electric oven and gas hob, microwave and fridge/freezer. You don’t even need to do the dishes as there is a dishwasher in the kitchen to do the work for you. From the hallway, which connects the kitchen and dining room, there is a sun-room which doubles up as a children’s game room, where after a fun filled day at the beach the children have their very own space to go and relax and enjoy a game or two on the Wii. Downstairs there is also a separate WC. Upstairs there are four bedrooms, a king-size with stunning views across the bay and its very own en-suite shower room with shower and WC, king-size zip-and-link (which can be made into a twin on request), a double and a twin.

We had a wonderful holiday here with 4 adults, a baby and 3 dogs. The owner was friendly and helpful. The house and location was stunning. We spent a lot of time in the hot tub with the beautiful view. The house was very close to the beach and facilities.

The property is spacious and well laid out and has fantastic sea views overlooking the village. It is a short walk down a steep hill to the village which means very small children or elderly adults may struggle to walk back. The property is in a good location to explore North Devon.
