Once you have finished exploring the town, jump in the car and just 4 miles away is Westward Ho! where 2 miles of sandy beach and an array of seaside attractions for all ages await. Walkers and cyclists are well catered for with the South West Coast Path and Tarka Trail both within 1 mile, with both offering spectacular views. Visit the sailing village of Instow, less than 4 miles away, where you will find a wealth of pubs, cafes and restaurants.

On entering the property, the spacious entrance hall leads to the lounge/diner, offering superb estuary views. French doors lead out to the terrace with comfy sofas and a large dining table, with seating for 10 people, making mealtimes a breeze. A study is just off the main lounge/diner and has a desk, ideal for those needing to catch up on work. This leads to a snug with a Smart TV, wood burner and further comfy seating. The kitchen is well fitted and equipped with everything you need to cater for your stay, including a Smart TV. A utility room, boot room and separate WC are adjacent and lead to a rear entrance, ideal for guests bringing their four-legged friends.

Mallacleave was chosen by us to celebrate our 50th anniversary. Its a Fabulous house, in great location and wonderful views across the river. All rooms decorated to a high standard. As a family of 10 there was plenty of room. Everyone enjoyed the hot tub, especially the younger members of the family, even though it was rather chilly getting in and Read moreout. The games room is a great addition to keep the children entertained. We would love to return if we can herd all the family together again. Hide

This is a totally wonderful house and we had a fantastic week, enjoying the amazing location and views and all the activities - the pool table and hot tub were a special treat. Nearby, all three generations loved the Dartington Crystal factory tour, and Lundy was an experience not to be missed.

This house is light and airy and has stunning views - the main lounge/dining room is glassed all the way round and has the same lovely view. The bedrooms were all very comfortable and it is just a short walk into Bideford with really good bus connections to Westward Ho! , Appledore and Instow. The jacuzzi out on the decking was great, beautiful outRead more under the stars and the games room was a hit too. Really comfortable, well furnished and an adorable terraced garden at the back. Loved it! Hide
