This lovely detached home sits in a magnificent position with breathtaking views of Woolacombe Bay to the front and National Trust land behind. The house is built on a private road just above the Esplanade, slightly removed from the hustle and bustle of the village, but still only a stroll from the three mile Blue Flag beach and the shops. Everything you could need is just minutes away - whether it be restaurants and pubs, pitch and put, crazy golf, surf hire or an impressive spa available in a nearby hotel - there is something for everyone.
The key thing about Baggy Leap is the sea - there are sea views from almost every room in the house. The fabulously spacious living room has floor to ceiling windows with amazing sea views. You can play table football, or pool or snuggle down on the enormous sofas and watch TV, and there is Satellite Plus for the times you want to go outside to admire the sunset. The kitchen is incredibly well-equipped and has a dark blue double aga as well as a separate oven and hob. Just by the back door are shelves of different sized wellies to borrow for wet weather (including some tiny ones) which we hope will work for everyone in your party. If you're not able to eat outside - in the summerhouse or on the terrace - there's a family dining room with long pine tables and traditional dresser. Enjoy your meals while watching the sea, the sky and Lundy Island.
The house has five bedrooms; four double rooms and a twin room which can be converted to a double room on request. There are three bathrooms and two separate cloakrooms. One of the double rooms has a kingsize bed and ensuite bathroom, and spectacular views the length of the three mile beach. Another of the double bedrooms is downstairs and has an en suite shower room. All bed linen is white and towels are provided for use in the house. White walls, cream carpets and curtains and colourful photography combine to create a cool and relaxing atmosphere throughout. There are books and games for rainy days in the second sitting room which has a sofa and bean bags. Baggy Leap has a pretty big footprint, with room for three or four cars to park comfortably at the top of its long drive. It also has a quirky garden layout. There's a sloping lawn in front, leading up to the long terrace that runs the length of the house with a table and chairs to sit at the far corner. A small lawn in front of the summerhouse is a good place to play giant jenga (you'll find that next to the wellies). Behind the summerhouse is a shower to rinse off after swimming or surfing. At the back of the house there are flower and herb beds - feel free to add sage, rosemary or mint to your cooking.
