The Experience

A luxury self catering holiday retreat which stands proudly on a rounded hill top with wonderful views of Devon through 360 degrees.

The views stretch from Saunton Burrows and the sea to the north west and overlooking the open countryside of the Taw valley to the south and east.

The sea is within easy reach, popular nearby sandy surfing beaches include Saunton, Woolacombe and Croyde.

For walkers there are many beautiful routes from Tawstock Castle as well as the well-known coastal footpath which has great views of the coastline.

In total there is 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. There is a stylish dining/ living area, modern kitchen, a study, 2 double bedrooms (one with an en suite and the other, access to the roof) and 2 twin bedrooms (one with an en suite).

This amazing holiday retreat is immediately surrounded by lawned gardens of about an acre that are enclosed by a circular bailey. It sits in approximately eight acres of its own parkland.

Minimum of 3 nights stay. In school summer holidays the changeover day is Saturday (minimum stay in summer months is 7 days).

Excellent, ample walks from the property and nearby to the famous Tarka Trail.

Visit Exmoor National Park with its spectacular scenery and enjoy peaceful walks over the moors where you may catch sight of the wild Exmoor ponies.

For the sporting enthusiasts there are ample activities to try such as kayaking, fishing, riding or rock pooling to name but a few.

Spend time on the famous sandy surfing beaches of Saunton, Woolacombe and Croyde, and investigating the dramatic coastline from the coastal footpath.
