Set in a beautiful garden, the house offers spacious accommodation and is a great place for friends and family gatherings. There are miles of lovely country walks directly from the property. Within a short drive, there is plenty to see and do including a wander around the attractive harbour town of Bideford (0.5 miles). The Tarka Trail for traffic-free walking and cycling is less than 1 mile away and the fabulous sandy beach at Westward Ho! is just 3 miles. Children and adults alike will also love the nearby family adventure parks such as The Big Sheep (2 miles) and The Milky Way (8 miles).

This immaculate detached house is approached down a small lane and has its own private drive. Enter this stunning reverse-level home into the spacious entrance hall, a perfect place to hang coats and store sandy shoes after a day on the beach. Moving on there are four stylish bedrooms all with Smart TVs. First, there is a king-size bedroom with built-in wardrobes, a twin zip-and-link (which can be made into super-king-size on request), another super-king-size with an en-suite shower room with WC and a door giving private access to the garden, and a fourth bedroom with a double bed. The family bathroom is also on this floor and has a contemporary bath as well as a separate shower and WC. Heading up the stairs to the first floor, you will find a bright and elegant open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner, which boasts a floor-to-ceiling picture window at one end letting natural light flood in – there is also an impressive wood burner. The welcoming lounge is ideal for kicking back and relaxing in front of the large Smart TV; snuggle up on the sofas and enjoy your sumptuous surroundings. The light and attractive dining area is ideal whether you’re enjoying a snack or sitting down for a special meal at the large table. If you do decide to stay in and cook, there is a stylishly designed kitchen, with an island unit/breakfast bar and stools. It features an electric oven and induction hob, microwave, Nespresso coffee machine, built-in fridge/freezer, dishwasher, washing machine and tumble dryer.

Venturing outside, you can relax at the end of the day in the enclosed rear garden where there is a patio with garden furniture, perfect for outside dining, and your very own hot tub. At the bottom of the garden is a raised patio with sun loungers, outdoor furniture, a wood fired BBQ, and a fire pit, ideal for those lazy summer evenings. There is also an outdoor shower, perfect before getting in the hot tub or for washing the sand off from the beach. Off-road parking for up to four cars is available at the front of the property.

Booked Hyford Wood for a weekend break with friends. The house was beautiful with great facilities. nice walk into town with a bit of a hill to walk back. Short drive to gorgeous beaches at Westward Ho, or 20 minutes to Barnstaple. Would definitely rebook!

This property is unbelievable. All the equipment is top of the range and the hot tub was great on an evening to relax. Quality family time over the Christmas period. The house was also decorated for Christmas which was done very tastefully. We are already looking at booking again.

Nice spot with a sense of space and peace. The building is very well finished and is really comfortable. It is fully fenced, so your kids and dog can't wander into the road. As others have said, the hot tub is great, I would add that the beds are very comfortable and the bathrooms are particularly nice for a holiday let.

The house was absolutely stunning, it seems like no expense was spared. Hot tub was huge, in general it was a really sociable space to relax and catch up with friends. I have been organising the girls trips for 10 years and this was by far the nicest place we have stayed. The welcome hamper was also a really nice touch. Thank you for a great stay!
