Couples will love this former coach house that has sea views from the first-floor lounge and is within walking distance to the beach, shops, restaurants, as well as having your own private hot tub.

This former coach house is the ideal place for a romantic retreat on the North Devon coast. Located in the village of Northam and within a mile of Westward Ho! where you’ll find golden sand, clean surf and a variety of pubs, cafes and restaurants. After a busy day exploring, you can sink into the sofa and enjoy the sea views across Bideford Bay or immerse yourself in the hot tub in your private courtyard with a glass of your favourite tipple. Relaxing couldn’t be easier!

With its neutral tones, clean lines and stylish décor, this property is cool and contemporary whilst remaining comfortable and homely. The reverse-layout living allows guests to appreciate the far-reaching sea views from the lounge at the same time as snuggling in front of the wood burner effect electric heater. Downstairs, the well-equipped kitchen, including Tassimo coffee machine, is the perfect place to prepare meals before retreating to the delightful dining area or taking it outside to the private courtyard where a small table and chairs provides a great place to enjoy morning coffee or a light meal. The king-size bedroom is spacious and looks out on to the private courtyard.

Whether you’re the relaxing type or the adventurous type, North Devon has lots on offer. From Westward Ho! you can join the South West Coast Path and discover hidden coves along the rugged coastline or why not hire a bike from historic town Bideford (3 miles) and cycle the Tarka Trail to Instow? RHS Rosemoor (10.5 miles) is the perfect place for a gentle stroll or the picturesque village of Clovelly (13 miles), nestled into the cliff, provides an opportunity for an uphill walk.

Nice cottage, however we found it all a little cramped and squashed, the owners property is right next door and just didnt ever feel very private surrounded by windows and them going about every day life. The hot tub is nice but is so large you can barely walk down the side. Other than that is a lovely place and cosy, but we felt for the price compRead moreared to a lodge it was hard to see the value. On a side note, the location is beautiful. Hide

A very nice cottage with a huge hot tub. The bed was comfy, as was the living room. I didnt like the combi oven, but I didnt spot this in the listing until after we had booked, however we hardly starved! The hot tub is lovely, big, but who cares! Jacqui and Michael were friendly and always helpful.

Lovely cosy and clean little cottage set in a nice location with a great view out to the sea. Easy walking distance to town but take a torch for the dark, narrow country lane so cars can see you. Hot tub was a nice addition, enjoyable even in the winter weather. Would recommend and would visit again.
