Bordered by four acres of formal gardens and woodland this immaculate and elegant detached apartment commands magnificent panoramic views of the River Torridge and surrounding countryside.

With panoramic views across the River Torridge and surrounded by 4 acres of woodland and gardens, this apartment is a wonderful home for those desiring a taste of waterside living. Cosy and compact, and including a romantic dinner spot with stunning views, you can experience a taste of tranquil magic as you stroll outside and snuggle up in the summerhouse.

Stepping inside the property, you are greeted by a sense of serenity and calm as you watch the tidal River Torridge ripple past your windows. The open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner space has everything you need to rustle up a feast before settling down for the evening on the comfortable sofa. Feel as though you are on the water as you dine beside a window with superb views before warming chilly toes on the underfloor heating then hopping into bed in the cosy king-size room. To end your day on a high, roam the garden and curl up in the summerhouse, both of which are shared with the neighbouring properties. This ground-floor apartment is adjacent to a private property and small guest house yet privacy is assured.

For a different perspective of the water, borrow a kayak (free of charge!) and paddle the day away, or dip your toe in the ocean at Westward Ho! and wander its glorious stretch of sand, 5.5 miles away. Step foot onto the nearby Tarka Trail, or South West Coast Path to work up an appetite and observe the natural beauty of your surroundings. Dartington Crystal is 7 miles away and a great place to watch glass making in action before treating yourself to a traditional Devon high tea.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Lovely view of river and very handy for Bideford and the Tarka trail, very friendly owners who were very helpful and obliging.

Reviewed by Wayne 22nd August 2019

The hosts were superb - recommendations of activities to undertake and locations to visit were spot on. Very accommodating and nothing appeared too much trouble for them. Perfect location for taking in the local area with kayaking, cycling the Tarka trail and nearby Instow beach all on your doorstep. Loved the break, would definitely recommend to aRead morenyone and would be very happy to revisit. Hide
