This beautiful, unique watchtower offers fabulous views and provides a true hideaway for those looking to spend quality time together on a romantic break close to the North Devon coast.
Perched high on a hill with stunning panoramic views, this unique and quirky Grade II listed property is a fantastic hideaway for couples with a desire to escape and explore. The Watchtower’s location means you can climb the stairs and gaze out over the River Taw and its surrounding fields and hills from the bedroom/living area. Close to beaches, towns and seaside villages, you will be spoilt for choice each day when deciding on your next holiday adventure.
The open-plan living areas both upstairs and downstairs are light and airy, as the beautifully shaped traditional windows allow natural light to flood in. The space is cosy and relaxing, perfect for returning to after a day spent exploring local treasures. The kitchen is without an oven, but instead has a microwave for quick meals and the property is surrounded by a range of pubs serving food. On warm evenings, head outside into the garden which is shared with those staying in the other two properties on-site. Watch the sun set over the rippling river whilst enjoying a BBQ supper alfresco.
A pannier market, shopping centre and fascinating local museum lie just 1.5 miles away in the local town of Barnstaple. Here you can also enjoy delicious food at one of the many different restaurants, pubs and cafes. Sand and surf are just 8.5 miles away at Saunton; take a picnic and settle down in the dunes to shelter from the refreshing sea breeze, or don your wetsuit and dive in. If roaming blooming flowerbeds and kitchen gardens are for you, head 8 miles to Tapeley Park. Stop off in the seaside village of Instow on the way home for a meal in one of the many fabulous waterfront eateries.
