Boasting glorious views across the River Taw and a light open-plan living space, this home is perfectly located for those wishing to explore the beaches, seaside villages and quirky towns of North Devon before relaxing in the evenings. Golden sands, coastal walks and majestic moors are all within 20 miles of the property and you won’t have to travel far to discover restaurants serving delicious food.

On climbing the stairs to reach the property, Ellerslie Coach House is cleverly designed to maximise space and make you feel at home. Large windows and skylights let natural light in, creating a calming atmosphere perfect for relaxing and unwinding. The kitchen/living space opens out onto a decked balcony with fantastic views; take your morning coffee or evening glass of wine outside and gaze over the surrounding hills and rippling river. There is plenty of gorgeous outside space to enjoy including access to the owner's lawn area and shared use of the garden with those staying in the two additional properties nearby.

The market town of Barnstaple has everything you need to enjoy a day out, 1.5 miles away. Shops line the streets whilst the local museum stands proudly on the beautiful town square. Relax by the fountain before heading inside to discover tales of North Devon. Pick up fish and chips on the way to Instow, 5 miles away, a seaside village wonderfully situated on the estuary - perfect for kicking back with a picnic and taking in the superb views, before discovering one of the many waterfront pubs. Whether you are cycling or walking enthusiasts, the South West Coast Path and Tarka Trail are two brilliant accessible tracks to explore.

Great location with easy access to Barnstaple/north Devon area with plenty of local shops and restaurants close by. Quiet, spacious and comfortable and welcoming host. Kitchen and facilities fine for two, though could do with a bit of tlc here and there. Just a shame the weather was so poor we couldn't use the balcony!

A beautiful apartment in a fab location. Views are lovely although unfortunately you cant see the river now, but the woodland and wildlife is special. Everything you could possibly need is in the apartment and the owners are amazing, very helpful in any way and lots of advice on the surrounding area. The bed is extremely comfortable and the double Read moreshower is really great. Location central to lots of beautiful places, like Instow, Appledore, Fremington Quay, and our personal favourite Bideford. Hide

It was a fantastic place to stay with so many things to do on your doorstep.
