This property enjoys a tranquil rural location in the North Devon countryside, just a short distance from the Devon/Somerset border, and close to the edge of the stunning Exmoor National Park. Just a few miles from the coast, there is ample opportunity to explore local beaches, and hidden coves, including those at Lee Bay and Woody Bay, whilst the wide stretch of sand at Woolacombe is just fourteen miles away. For those who can tear themselves away from the delights of the coast, there is much more to see in the local area, including the Wildlife and Dinosaur park at Combe Martin, the Lynton and Lynmouth Cliff Railway, and Watermouth Castle, with its family friendly attractions.

This property offers the perfect place for a relaxing break with friends and family. Upon entering, guests will find the lovely, spacious lounge, with its huge corner sofa, Freeview TV/DVD and a cosy wood burner (one basket of logs provided). The kitchen/diner has been lovingly finished in an attractive farmhouse style, with a wooden dining table, a pretty window seat, oven and hob, fridge/freezer, microwave, washer/dryer, and dishwasher. Upstairs, the property offers three bedrooms. The first of these is a king-size room with views over the garden, the second a king-size room with an en-suite shower and WC. The last room is a bunk bedroom with full size bunks. The bathroom has a shower over bath and WC.

Outside, the property enjoys beautiful gardens, which are mainly set to lawn, with plenty of space to relax and run around. There is outdoor seating here, as well as a BBQ, making it perfect for enjoying the peaceful surroundings. Guests are also able to explore the farm, where they will find the resident sheep and alpacas, as well as an enclosed children’s play area with a climbing frame, swings, slide, and a trampoline.

Beacon Down is a lovely property finished to a very high standard. It was spotlessly clean, attractively furnished and very comfortable. Welcome treats were a nice surprise. We loved the thick fluffy towels too! It's set in beautiful countryside with fabulous gardens/grounds - a little remote, but this makes for a very peaceful, relaxing time.

A decently sized house with generous garden. The location is convenient - on a very quiet lane yet only a few hundred yards from the A39 and a short drive to Lynton. Overall, a good place to relax and also convenient as a base to tour North Devon.

Lovely property with great hosts In such a beautiful area and countryside. Being a city dweller, I loved listening to the birds singing and chasing each other. Highly recommended Only suggestion would be to take a torch for evenings.

Lovely house in beautiful setting. The large grounds are wonderful and we would have been happy to sit in them all day. The grandchildren also loved it. It is in a great location and theres lots to do within a 30 minute drive. We all loved the narrow gauge steam railway at the end of the lane, and the boys loved playing football down by the lovely Read morelake in the grounds. The owners were very friendly and helpful.

Lovely farm cottage in great location. Close proximity to local attractions. 25 minute drive to closest sandy beach at Woolacombe (pepple beaches closer).
