This stylish retreat sits in a convenient and exclusive gated development of just  two properties on the edge of Woolacombe, providing luxurious living at its best.

This is a stunning gated development - one of two detached luxury retreats near Ilfracombe (3 miles), Woolacombe (4 miles) and Croyde (8 miles). With pristine beaches on your doorstep, your only choice is whether to luxuriate at home, stretch out on golden Devonian sands or surf the wild Atlantic sea. Enjoy superb walks on the Tarka Trail (7 miles) and along the South West Coast Path, and take in some of the best sea views in Britain.

Enter through the electronic wooden gates to the bright and light interior. A Scandi-style cottage greets you and offers underfloor heating to ensure a warm and cosy stay. The open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner is sleek and stylish, with a cool panoramic splashback of Croyde Bay in the kitchen and minimal clutter allowing space and the air to flow. French doors bring the outside in, opening up the space further. The king-size bedroom echoes this ambience, opening onto the private patio, loungers, hot tub and expansive green views beyond.

Find the things, places and sights that suit you. Have fun at Watermouth Bay (6 miles), ride the funicular from Lynton to Lynmouth (18 miles) and make the acquaintance of an octopus at Ilfracombe Aquarium (4 miles). Grab a coastal curry at Barricane Beach in Woolacombe (5 miles) and surf the breakers at Croyde (9 miles). Unwind at Saunton Sands (9 miles), hunt rare lizards on Braunton Burrows (10 miles), wonder at deep sea treasures in the North Devon Maritime Museum at Appledore (22 miles) and lose your inhibitions at the Palladium Club in Bideford (21 miles). Make the most of this wonderful setting.
