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.

Small but perfect! A lovely base for exploring, the house was spotless and very well equipped. Mark was lovely and was very helpful. TV signal isnt great but my fire stick worked fine on the included WiFi. Lots of shops and beaches within 10 minute drive. We will be returning!

The kitchen is very well equipped. Good size bedrooms. Clean and tidy. Brilliant location where you can sit by the Torridge River on the shared garden, which was lovely. Good to have a car, so that you can visit the wonderful places around. Instow, Saunton Sands and Clovelly Village are well worth a visit.

Yeolden Stables is a very pleasant property, beautifully decorated and super clean! The kitchen is well-equipped as is the living room with good wifi and a very nice touch - maps, books and games for rainy days and evenings. The location is lovely, within easy walking distance of the town of Bideford and perfectly situated for walks along the coastRead moreal path. The main bedroom is a good size, the two singles small but well furnished to ensure maximisation of space. We enjoyed our stay very much. Hide

Cosy,comfortable,constant hot water&heating of needed.Extended garden by the estuary with beautiful views,but it,s a walk down the lane to access - thought it would be closer to the property.Also the back yard not so pleasant for relaxing in-could have been tidier,more flowers&plants to brighten it.

Positives - Well located and cottage, helpful owners, lovely cream tea and flowers on arrival. Negatives - The master bedroom window is overlooked by the shared drive which is used by the neighbours.

We did have a lovely stay but your privacy is only as good as the guests next door, also a holiday home so unpredictable. Hide

We had a fantastic time at Yeoldon Stables. It is an excellent base for walks along the river into Bideford and for country walks. It was also well appointed for trips within the local area and everywhere seemed to be just a few minutes away. The accommodation itself was well equipped and was a real home from home.
