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.

Our only problem was that it was situated on a very fast and busy road.However a 10 minute walk takes you to the Tarka Trail , which gave access to miles of traffic free walking & cycling.

The cottage was lovely and the hosts very welcoming and friendly. There is a lovely walk for dogs across the river and our Labrador LOVED the river at high tide but was confused when he couldn't go in when the water was low. The cottage is close to many activities and lovely beaches. A welcomed, relaxcing long weekend.

A well appointed apartment. Wonderful views from the breakfast bar over the river and countryside. Comfy bed with good quality bedding. Lovely large fluffy towels too. Good location for exploring the area. Hosts were very friendly and helpful enjoyed meeting all their onsite animals too.
