PROPERTY SLEEPING 12 or 14 IN IDYLLIC LOCATION WITH STUNNING VIEWS
In a superb secluded location, set in 3.5 acres of unspoilt countryside, Priory House really does offer the best of both worlds This impressive detached home is surrounded by stunning rural scenery yet sits only two miles from the principal market town of Barnstaple and just a short drive away from a choice of stunning North Devon beaches. Access to J27 of the M5 is less than an hour away. As soon as you enter through the pillared wooden gates onto the private sweeping driveway, you will know you have arrived somewhere really special to relax and unwind. The spacious contemporary accommodation is light and bright throughout, with high quality furnishings, stylishly presented. A superbly equipped kitchen/dining room is at the heart of the house, where the whole family can gather for leisurely breakfasts or catch up on the days adventures over dinner. This dual aspect room has French doors opening onto a choice of two terraces, which enjoy the sun at different times of day. Two separate living rooms ensure plenty of space for everyone to relax or play and both have doors which open directly onto one of the terraces which surround the property on all sides for easy access to superb views. There are five attractively furnished bedrooms on the first floor. The master bedroom features a pretty Juliette balcony, ensuite bathroom and huge walk in wardrobe. A second king room also benefits from an ensuite shower room. The third bedroom is a double aspect room with sleeping options for a family offering great flexibility by way of two zip and link king size beds that can be converted to four singles on request. A fourth bedroom offers twin single sleeping arrangements and the fifth bedroom is a more compact double. A fabulous family bathroom completes the upstairs accommodation.
The grounds which immediately surround the house are mostly lawned, overlooking paddocks and woodland with wonderful views far into the distance. An elevated tree house (young children will need to be supervised) will provide amusement for the younger guests and a small orchard is being established in a further corner of the expansive gardens.
In the grounds just across the gravelled car park there is a delightful self contained cottage that sleeps two with studio living/sleeping area, its own kitchen/diner and shower room. The cottage also has its own lawned garden area. The cottage is available exclusively for visitors to Priory House during school holidays between April to August, Christmas and New Year weeks at a 50% discount on advertised prices - please enquire when booking. For larger family groups or for two families holidaying together, Priory House is just perfect for getting away from it all in spacious comfortable surroundings. The golden sandy surfing beaches of Saunton and Croyde are approximately twenty-five minutes drive away and the fringes of beautiful Exmoor National Park even closer.
