About the property


This modern, stylishly presented, attached property is on the banks of the River Torridge in the picturesque North Devon town of Bideford. It is arranged over three floors, all having stunning uninterrupted views of the river and town over the rear garden.

Downstream is an impressive stone bridge dating back to the 13th century which is the focal point of the town. A comfortable stroll across the bridge takes you to the bustling quayside where you can watch the fishing boats and daily life go by, or settle into one of the quayside coffee shops or pubs. A few yards upstream from the property there is a public slipway to the river, a kayak and bike hire centre and access to the Tarka Trail, a traffic free path stretching for 30 miles, perfect for country walks and bike rides. The excellent surf beach at Westward Ho!, the quaint fishing village of Appledore, and the marina and beautiful sands at Instow are all within 3 miles. In the evenings, there are numerous pubs and restaurants in the town to explore. Alternatively, you can relax in the riverside garden for a BBQ, watch the bird life on the river, try fishing from the small deck or soak up the fabulous sunsets and lights of the town on the hillside opposite.
