    About this property

    This large property can accommodate up to 12 guests and features a private, outdoor swimming pool.
    A hidden gem, Ratherton House is the perfect choice for a memorable family holiday at any time of year. Tucked away within glorious Devon countryside, just 10 miles from the breathtaking north Cornish coast and its many sandy beaches, this impressive, detached, luxurious house has been refurbished in a light and airy contemporary style, whilst retaining much of its original charm and character. Equipped to a very high standard with most bedrooms having en-suite facilities, there is plenty of space for family and friends to gather, but also to escape to a quiet corner. Pretty gardens surround the property, offering plenty of space for al fresco dining and for the children to let off steam in the play area. The property also has Wi-Fi available. With the added luxury of an outdoor swimming pool, sun terrace and tennis court, it will be hard to drag yourself away from this unique property.

    On the doorstep there is plenty to see and do. Nearby Tamar Lakes has a water sports centre, along with lovely lakeside walks and coarse fishing. The golden sands of Bude and Widemouth Bay are just 10 miles away, with excellent surfing, pretty coves and dramatic coastal walks, along with shopping and leisure facilities, including 10-pin bowling, a wave pool, restaurants, bars and coffee shops. There are numerous National Trust properties in the area, including Arlington Court and Hartland Abbey, as well as the RHS gardens at Rosemoor and Docton Mill.

    Holsworthy, 1½ miles, has a good selection of local shops and supermarkets along with a leisure centre and weekly market. There are several good pubs and restaurants close by to have a break from the cooking, and for family fun the Big Sheep and the Milky Way adventure parks are not to be missed. Golf, riding, fishing, surfing, mountain boarding, karting and high ropes are available locally, and the wild beauty of Dartmoor, Exmoor and Bodmin Moors are all within easy driving distance, as is the famous Eden Project. With so much to discover in this lovely part of north Devon, this is the perfect holiday choice. Shop, pub and restaurant 1½ miles.

    "We had some minor gripes: the seventh bedroom wasn't made up; the Aga didn't work; some of the lights were out; there appeared to be no central heating and we had difficulty drying the towels; the beds were not very comfortable, some with a sheet directly on the mattress, instead of with a mattress topper or underblanket. However, we absolutely loved the swimming pool and the conservatory, and had a great week despite rather miserable weather. There was a very quick response to (most of) our gripes, and Anthony, the handyman, was extremely helpful."

    "Will definitely return."

    "Lovely house in scenically attractive area. Local handyman most helpful and attentive. Unfortunately there was little tourist information in the property and no instructions regarding the use of equipment (oven, TVs and central heating etc). We thoroughly enjoyed the heated swimming pool and the well tended tennis court and had a marvellous time.This property requires that the step from the poolside area to the terrace should be marked . one of our party fell down the step ( fortunately no major injury occurred) and two others tripped down same but did not fall."
