Enjoy a stay at this superb cabin style property situated in a peaceful residential location in the port town of Bideford, with its busy river harbour, independent shops, and choice of eateries.

Set in the owner's grounds in the quaint East-the-Water district of Bideford, this charming retreat is perfect for couples seeking Devonian delights and wild southwestern adventures. This historic harbour town is a vibrant blend of retro boutiques, pubs, restaurants and fine art galleries. Bask on pristine beaches at Westward Ho! (4 miles) and Instow at low tide (3 miles) or explore pretty Appledore (5 miles) and its Maritime Museum. Improve your game at the Royal North Devon Golf Club and ride some waves at the North Devon Surf School (both 4 miles). Northam Burrows Country Park (5 miles) is home to an important range of ecosystems, abundant with rare wildlife.

The cabin benefits from both the owner's extensive garden and an elevated location, offering superb views of the river and Torridge Bridge. Plan thrilling days ahead at the breakfast bar in the well-equipped galley-style kitchen and come home to unwind in the lounge with its smart TV. Spill out into the garden through bi-folding doors on balmy evenings, for sundowners and a BBQ. Drift into a blissful sleep in the king-size bedroom, and awake refreshed, ready for exciting excursions and adventures.

Seek timeless tranquillity in the steep cobbled fishing village of Clovelly (14 miles); the coastal approach from Bucks Mills (11 miles) is sublime. The Hartland Peninsular (19 miles) is a rugged world of cliffs, secluded beaches and awesome views – look out for the lighthouse, abbey and quay. Braunton Burrows (16 miles) is a unique UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, with a vast and vital system of sand dunes. Traverse the South West Coast Path and find pristine beaches at Putsborough (19 miles), Croyde (20 miles), Woolacombe and Ilfracombe (22 miles) and mysterious Combe Martin (21 miles). Amazing memories await.
