This former coach house is the ideal place for a romantic retreat on the North Devon coast. Located in the village of Northam and within a mile of Westward Ho! where you’ll find golden sand, clean surf and a variety of pubs, cafes and restaurants. After a busy day exploring, you can sink into the sofa and enjoy the sea views across Bideford Bay or immerse yourself in the hot tub in your private courtyard with a glass of your favourite tipple. Relaxing couldn’t be easier!

With its neutral tones, clean lines and stylish décor, this property is cool and contemporary whilst remaining comfortable and homely. The reverse-layout living allows guests to appreciate the far-reaching sea views from the lounge at the same time as snuggling in front of the wood burner effect electric heater. Downstairs, the well-equipped kitchen, including Tassimo coffee machine, is the perfect place to prepare meals before retreating to the delightful dining area or taking it outside to the private courtyard where a small table and chairs provides a great place to enjoy morning coffee or a light meal. The king-size bedroom is spacious and looks out on to the private courtyard.

Whether you’re the relaxing type or the adventurous type, North Devon has lots on offer. From Westward Ho! you can join the South West Coast Path and discover hidden coves along the rugged coastline or why not hire a bike from historic town Bideford (3 miles) and cycle the Tarka Trail to Instow? RHS Rosemoor (10.5 miles) is the perfect place for a gentle stroll or the picturesque village of Clovelly (13 miles), nestled into the cliff, provides an opportunity for an uphill walk.

Absolutely beautiful, cute little cottage. The owners have provided everything you need to make it a comfortable stay.

This is a clean well presented property. It's upside down with. Kit diner bedroom and ensuite downstairs and a lounge with a view of the sea upstairs.

Lovely, clean and comfortable (the bed is so comfy I didnt want to get up!) well presented. The amenities arent too far but the road is quite busy if youre walking in the dark. Quiet area apart from the building site behind the property. There were only 3 people on site during the week though so noise was at a minimum.

Great place with everything you needed. Spotlessly clean and comfortable bed. However, we did feel the hot tub was unusable due to the awkwardness of getting in due to the steps not fitting down the side of the hot tub, so you have to just use a small corner of the top step and hold on to the drainpipe. We also found the combi oven too complicated Read moreto use and it ruined food, a standard oven would have meant we wouldnt have to eat out all week, both things would stop us returning Im afraid.

A lovely little getaway for us and our dog Archie. The downstairs bedroom opening onto the courtyard and hot tub has a spa like feel. The courtyard outside the kitchen is perfect for alfresco dining.
