This delightful barn conversion enjoys the most spectacular views over the River Torridge. Set in a rural location, surrounded by beautiful farmland it promises a true countryside retreat.

Nestled amongst 700 acres of beautiful North Devon farmland, this fabulous barn conversion (one of two) commands a stunning position with breathtaking views of the River Torridge. Found at the end of a 0.75-mile drive, this country retreat promises a peaceful, relaxing holiday with plenty of fresh, country air to rejuvenate you. As well as country walks to enjoy, there is plenty to explore in the area, including the historic, market town of Bideford (3 miles) and the golden sands of Westward Ho! (6 miles).

This beautiful property has been sympathetically converted to blend seamlessly into the surrounding landscape. Its lovely stone exterior contains a spacious property that’s been tastefully decorated with neutral colours and warm wood to create a restful feel. The kitchen is accessed down two steps from the hallway and the lounge/diner offers comfort and warmth after a busy day exploring. The wood burner will be particularly appreciated as the evenings draw in. One double bedroom and shower cubicle is on the ground floor, while the further two bedrooms, with their far-reaching views, are upstairs. Outside, a shared lawn and play area is available for the kids to let off steam.

Bideford has plenty to offer including Victoria Park, a historic pannier market and unique shops and eateries. The Tarka Trail, a former railway line turned cycleway, can also be accessed from here. 5 miles north is the lovely seaside village of Instow with its sand dunes and numerous pubs and restaurants. Across the estuary is the quaint, fishing village of Appledore (6 miles) that’s great for crabbing, ice cream licking or aimless wandering! For a family day out, there is The BIG Sheep (6 miles) and The Milky Way (13 miles).

A wonderful week in Devon enhanced by a fantastic cottage. Location is stunning with unrivalled views and the cottage was incredibly comfortable with all we needed. The great selection of kids toys and beach equipment an added bonus as was the delicious Devon cream tea on arrival from our very welcoming hosts.

April Cottage is a wonderful base for a Devon holiday. The Cottage was spotlessly clean. The Cottage has lots of old fashioned charm as well as feeling modern and fresh. The owners take excellent care of the property and had lots of little extra touches you don't normally find. The gardens and grounds were amazing! Perfect for kids and had a littleRead more shed full of outdoor toys. We can't wait to get back next year! Perfect cottage with perfect gardens. Well done to the owners! Hide

Nicely appointed cottage in lovely situation with very friendly, helpful owners. As a 5* property, we felt that there was some equipment missing ( see above).
