    About this property

    S59568 is an elegant Georgian house situated remotely in open farmland close to the cliffs of the rugged and dramatic North Devon coast. This a designated ‘area of outstanding natural beauty’ and the house has superb views out to sea, as well as inland across a wooded valley to the tall medieval tower of St Nectan's church.
    Great care has been taken to retain the historic character of the building while discreetly incorporating the best modern services in order to provide a great sense of contemporary style without the feeling of being 'too new'!
    ***** For all Bank Holiday weekends, the minimum stay will be 3 nights with an additional charge of just £250 for the entire weekend*****

    The options are virtually endless, but here are some of the most popular:

    The indoor games barn at Heatherside is a real asset for rainy days – it has basket ball, 5-a-side footie, table tennis, plasma screen and sound system and many toddler toys.
    Massage: Just the thing to soothe away stress! The masseurs come to the house for a minimum of 3 hours, for either hour or half hour treatments.
    Archery, laser clay, pistol and clay shooting can be arranged in the grounds, which is ideal if you are short of time or don’t fancy driving further afield.
    Cooking skills: let chefs work with you and have a fun experience producing a meal for yourselves – the Thai course is very popular.
    Golf: there are excellent parkland, championship and links courses all within 5-10 miles of our properties.
    Walking: Whether you want a gentle stroll, or a more energetic hike up a hillside, there is something for everyone, (most with a pub along the way!) There are maps and guided walks at the houses.
    Surfing: There are great spots nearby. Arrange excellent private tuition for your group including all equipment.
    Saunton Sands; near Barnstaple, north Devon, is a two mile stretch of lovely, soft, sandy beach. Around the corner is the popular surfing beach Croyde Bay and Woolacombe Sand. Roads around this area can get busy in the peak summer months.

    There are 5 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms on the first floor and 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms on the second attic floor.
