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.

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.
