The Old Apple Store is a luxury self-catering barn located between the popular coastal villages of Woolacombe and Ilfracombe on the fabulous North Devon coast and comes with its very own cedar hot tub.
Offering a tranquil destination for that out of the ordinary escape, this luxurious holiday home by the sea perfectly blends rustic design and modern living and sleeps up to four people.
After walking up the steps onto the wooden terrace those staying enter the property on first floor level. Here the open plan living space is the social hub of the holiday home.
With wooden beams overhead, guests can relax on the comfy sofa in front of the Smart TV while the wood burning stove keeps everyone cosy and warm. The barn benefits from full central heating.
At the other end of the room is the kitchen area, which is well equipped with an Aga Rangemaster, electric oven and hob, dishwasher, fridge/freezer, and Nespresso coffee machine. There is also a dining table and chairs and utility room with washer/dryer.
Also on the first floor is the first of the two bedrooms – a spacious double.
Heading down the spiral staircase then leads to the second bedroom, which can either be a super-king or twin depending on who is staying. This room also has a Smart TV with Amazon Firestick.
Both bedrooms have luxury Egyptian cotton linen to guarantee a comfy night’s sleep. Finally, there is a family bathroom with a bath and a shower.
As beautiful as The Old Apple Store is inside, things really get impressive when stepping outside. Situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and with stunning views across the surrounding countryside, the decked wooden terrace is the perfect place to relax and unwind.
There is an outdoor table and chairs for alfresco dining prepared on the Weber gas barbecue, while a lower deck is home to the cedar hot tub, the ideal place to relax and unwind after a long day.
The garden is dotted with trees, shrubs, and wildflowers to allow you to connect with nature.

Those staying can take a short walk into the nearby village of Lee to enjoy the characterful Grampus pub. However, for those who do want to venture a little further afield then Ilfracombe with its art galleries is three miles north, while to the south is Woolacombe with its fantastic surf, bars, and restaurants.
The Devon coast boasts some of England’s best beaches, ranging from long golden stretches of sand to rocky inlets. You’re guaranteed to find all the trappings of a typical English country getaway here, from cream tea to country pubs.
If the beach isn’t for you, the inland areas are dotted with thatched villages and peaceful meandering rivers.
