Property code: OC-NESTAL

Make yourselves at home in this cleverly engineered wooden annexe with a planted rooftop, perched in an exquisite hilltop location overlooking Woolacombe Beach. This secluded hideaway is ideal for couples seeking a peaceful retreat in the heart of North Devon. Follow the coastal trail down to Woolacombe Beach, 500 metres, and dive in for a refreshing morning dip or grab your surfboard and hit the waves. Stroll by the selection of independent eateries and local shops in the pretty seaside resort of Woolacombe, or bring a blanket and dine alfresco on Sri Lankan curry at Barricane Beach, 300 metres.

This is a charmingly compact home by the sea with a contemporary interior, luxe underfloor heating, and smart design features. Step inside and unwind in the open-plan living space with a comfortable sofa, a crackling wood burner, and large bi-fold doors opening onto the patio. Whip up some snacks or brew a fresh cup of tea in the compact kitchenette and perch at the dining table. Soak in the sea views from the reading nook by the window, then retreat to the peaceful king-size room with ample storage. There is also a large shower room with a WC.

Recline on the patio with outdoor furniture surrounded by wildflowers and shrubbery and settle in for a magnificent sunset over the bay.

The property was really nice, and big enough for the two of us. Just a short walk to the beach, the shops and restaurants. The time of the year was perfect, peaceful and freedom also nice weather. A lovely place.

This is the second time we have rented the nest along with our extended family in the albatross and find that this arrangement is very satisfactory. Just needs a toilet roll holder in the splendid bathroom and a hanging space for outdoor clothes.

The kitchen isn't really big enough to cook, there is only a frying pan and the smoke alarm goes off when its used. I took my own echo and firestick which I didn't need, it would have been nice to have read that, however the instructions for using the media centre could have been clearer. Also there's a building site next door, enough said about thRead moreat. Otherwise, a lovely place with a gorgeous view. Great to see rabbits and pheasants in the garden. Hide
