Northam Burrows Country Park which provides a wonderful backdrop for scenic walks amongst the sand dunes are just next to the beach. The pretty village of Appledore is just a short drive away and makes a lovely place to spend an afternoon watching the boats in the harbour or perhaps catching the ferry across the estuary to Instow. The larger town of Bideford is also close by, with a range of independent shops scattered along its narrow streets.

This property is accessed on foot through double gates and into the private courtyard.

Through to the dining area enjoy a romantic meal or a lazy breakfast and make use of the Bose speaker available. Leading off the kitchen/diner is the bedroom which has doors leading out the courtyard and has a king-size bed which benefits from Hilary blinds and an en-suite shower and WC. A flight of stairs from the dining area leads you to the first floor where you will find a relaxing lounge area with Smart TV/DVD, sea views and a wood burner effect electric fire for those cooler evenings, its a great spot to sit and relax with a good book overlooking the burrows and to the sea beyond.

Heading outside there is a patio courtyard with table and chairs in front of the kitchen entrance and more relaxing rattan style furniture next to the hot tub, a perfect place to sit out and enjoy pre dinner drinks. There is parking provided for one car outside the double gates.

Sea Sanctuary was ideal for us. Were trying to complete sections of the 630 mile South West Coast path, so the location was great. And comfortable to back to each day, enjoyed the hot tub too. Rural yet close enough to amenities. Excellent holiday. Would definitely recommend a stay here.

Had a lovely stay, great location, easy walking distance to the beach and local shops. Hot tub is always a plus! Plenty of space for 2 people and our Ridgeback. Would definitely book again =D

Excellent cottage, well equipped for two people. The hot tub was particularly good, sized for 2 people. The cottage is located easy walking distance from Westwood Ho. Because the living room is upstairs this may be a issue for people with mobility issues. Very comfy for us and we'll thought out. Hope to return some day

Fabulous little cottage. Clean, comfortable and everything you could need. Lovely touches with the dog biscuits, bowl and towel. Great hot tub to relax in after long walks on the nearby beaches. We had a great few days and I would definately recommend.

The cottage was a lovely escape from reality for a couple of days. Very cosy and well equipped! As we went in November we didnt make much use of the garden furnuture, however during the summer months I manage it to be a perfect set up

Beautifully renovated cottage in a stunning location convenient for a whole heap of activities and amenities. The owners even brought round some games for us in case we wanted something to do as the weather was so bad. Would definitely recommend the Seas Sanctuary as a bolt-hole for exploring North Devon.
