  • Pretty cottage a stones throw from the beautiful river Torridge, with shared games room and enclosed garden
  • Why not explore the stunning North Devon coastline along the South West Coastal Path which runs right past your doorstep

Property code: YEOST

Delightful former stables situated in one of the most desirable locations in Bideford, with waterside views and riverside walks from the bottom of the shared garden.

Sitting out on the decked riverside terrace and watching the world go by as the sun goes down is one of the simple pleasures that guests staying at this property can look forward to. The property itself has been finished in a fresh, contemporary style with seaside touches reflecting the property’s location in the harbour town of Bideford, 2 miles from the seaside town of Westward Ho! and its golden sands.

A truly idyllic location in the grounds of the main house, this converted stable building has been lovingly updated to create a sleek and sophisticated holiday home. The open-plan lounge/diner is a welcoming homely room in which to relax, whilst outside the enclosed garden with garden furniture is ideal for al fresco dining. A riverside terrace is shared with the owners and provides an idyllic riverside spot for sitting out with drinks as the sun goes down, or for enjoying a spot of fishing. A large shared garden boasts a children’s play area, but please take care in supervising them, as there is an unfenced pond in the garden too.

A leisurely 1-mile stroll from Yeoldon Stables brings guests to the centre of Bideford, a historic harbour town with a vibrant community and a good selection of places to eat. From here, the seaside village of Instow is just 2 miles away, as is the sweeping sandy beach at Westward Ho! For a truly special day trip, head to the town’s harbour and join a boat trip to the tranquil island of Lundy, home to a vast array of seabirds and wildlife.

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

  • 3 bedrooms – 1 double and 2 singles
  • 1 bathroom, en-suite shower room to the master, 1 downstairs WC
  • Shared games room with table tennis, air hockey and table football
  • Oven, fridge, freezer, microwave, dishwasher and washing machine

The cottage was spotlessly clean and very well equipped. There were clear instructions for the recycling, and the manuals for kitchen appliances were in the cupboard under the sink.

We feel that the temperature of the hot water should be lowered as it was too hot to use when washing hands from a single tap, suggest fitting a mixer tap to the en-suite, bathroom and downstairs cloakroom sinks. Also, when using the showers, if using another shower or tap at the same time, the water pressure dropped and it went cold.

We absolutely loved the cottage location be the river and dog walks.. it's a very beautiful area. The cottage is so well equipped with everything we needed plus luxuries like gas BBQ, and we appreciated the tea, coffee and milk left for us as a welcome. The double bed is the only thing needing urgent attention as very very uncomfortable with raisedRead more bed end which doesn't work for tall people! We highly recommend despite this. Hide
