This stunning coastal home nestles in an idyllic rural setting and has been lovingly fitted and furnished in a contemporary country style, boasts a private hot-tub and heated outdoor pool, and provides relaxation and fun for all ages.

Head out on foot down to the breath-taking Welcombe or Marsland Mouth beaches and from here you can stride out on the South West Coast Path and explore the stunning rocky coastline, famed for its array of flora and fauna. There are many local walks in and around Welcombe's leafy lanes and nature reserve trails with welcome refreshment available at the local pub. If it's sea and surf you’re after the ever popular coastal resort of Bude is just a short drive away, and the seaside town of Westward Ho! only slightly further and boasting three miles of golden sandy beach making it the ultimate day out for the family. If you would rather relax on your Devon getaway then the pretty fishing village of Clovelly is a lovely place to spend an afternoon, and with its cobbled streets filled with shops and pubs. Other attractions in the area include Hartland Abbey and Quay, The Milky Way Adventure Park, The Big Sheep Adventure Park, RHS Garden Rosemoor and Hartland Abbey. Head just a few hundred yards in the opposite direction on the main Atlantic Highway and you will enter Cornwall. Bude, Boscastle, Tintagel and Port Issac all within easy reach for a day out.

Step inside this stunning property and you will find yourself in the fabulously spacious kitchen/diner, which boasts a beamed ceiling, warming wood burner and French doors to outside, meaning you can dine alfresco with ease. This lovely sociable area provides a perfect place to enjoy a laid-back breakfast before heading out or a relaxed meal at the end of the day. The gorgeous kitchen offers further informal dining in the shape of the central island/breakfast bar, plus a great selection of equipment and appliances including an electric Range oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer and two dishwashers. There is also an undeniably useful utility room which leads off the kitchen and includes an additional fridge/freezer, washing machine and tumble dryer. Next head through to the light and bright hallway which leads to the opposite end of the property and the two fabulous lounges, the first of which is an elegant lounge/library with comfy seating, warming open fire and a fabulous selection of books. From here, locate the secret door and step into a further lounge/TV room, a beautifully light room with comfy seating and offering a Smart TV with BT Vision. The remainder of the ground floor comprises the first of the impeccably styled bedrooms and bathrooms, the first of which is a double room with a generously proportioned en-suite Jack-and-Jill bathroom with shower over stunning roll-top bath and WC which can also be accessed via the hallway. Further to this a cosy triple bedroom with three single beds, with Smart TV with BT Vision and Xbox providing great accommodation for all ages. Finally, a pretty bunk bedroom (suitable for children only) and adjacent shower room with shower and WC complete the offering on the ground floor. The rest of the bedroom accommodation is arranged on the first floor and accessed via two separate sets of stairs. Leading up to the first floor from the kitchen/diner the first set of stairs lead to a brilliantly spacious super-king-size bedroom with an additional single day bed, vaulted ceiling and exposed beams and a lovely twin bedroom with a characterful sloping ceiling and exposed beams. Servicing these bedrooms and located on the same level is a beautiful contemporary bathroom with corner bath with shower attachment and a separate WC next door to this. On the other side of the property and accessed via a light sweeping stairwell up to the first floor, is a double bedroom which boasts a vaulted ceiling, exposed beams and a luxurious roll-top bath in the room, and next to this a separate WC. On the same level there is also two further double bedrooms, both with lovely sloping ceilings and exposed beams and en-suite facilities, one with an en-suite shower room with shower and WC, and the other an en-suite bathroom with corner bath with shower attachment on bath and WC.

Venturing outside, further highlights await in the shape of the stunning garden and pool. To the front of the property there is a large lawn garden with sea views, decked patio area, garden furniture and charcoal BBQ, and this provides the perfect place to dine outside in warm weather. This area leads to the fabulous feature of the heated outdoor pool (available from Easter to mid-October), equipped with sun loungers and offering a place to relax in the sun without having to venture down to the beach. Located in the secluded cobbled courtyard at the rear of the property, a lovely private undercover hot tub has also been provided for your relaxation and enjoyment, and finally a brilliantly equipped games room with table tennis, air hockey and selection of indoor and outdoor games, will keep everyone entertained whatever the weather.
