In a unique position overlooking the sea at Woody Bay, this historic Manor House sits within its own 26 acres of extensive grounds nestled into the tree-covered Exmoor hills. The views here are jaw dropping. Ancient woodland falls down almost to the sea and cliffs rise sharply up out of the water to become the highest in England.  The craggy coastline is spectacularly beautiful, peaceful and unspoilt; little can be heard apart from the crash of the waves and the call of the birds. A steep path from the Manor leads through manicured grounds to a sand and shingle beach. A sparkling waterfall plays down the rocks and it is rumoured that German submariners would sneak ashore under cover of darkness and replenish their supplies of fresh water here during WWII. Rock pools, visiting seals, and a part natural swimming pool make Woody Bay a magical place to take a picnic and spend time on a fine day. Exhilarating walks wind through Exmoor National Park and over National Trust headlands and the South West Coast Path passes close by. A particularly scenic route follows the coast to Valley of Rocks and on to the twin towns of Lynton and Lynmouth. Horse riding and fly, lake and sea fishing are all available nearby.
Set in the grounds of The Manor in amongst the trees, The Lodge is a detached cedar wood bungalow with the feel of a tree house. Peaceful and very secluded with direct views over the sea it's ideal for a romantic retreat. Compact and cosy the living/kitchen/dining area has large picture windows displaying the quite magnificent coastal scenery. The double bedroom also has great views and there is a small dressing room with space for a cot. A private ranch-style balcony is the perfect place to sit outside and admire the surroundings.
Martinhoe Manor has landscaped gardens, sweeping lawns, mature, colourful borders and meandering paths which melt into the Exmoor landscape beyond. East-facing, the morning sun lights up the front terraces and in the evenings the sun sets over the sea in a spectacular show of colour. There is a communal games room with a pool table and a very useful laundry room.

Fantastically located with view of the sea and Woody Bay through the trees plus the South Wales coastline on clear days. Ideally situation for coastal path walks.

Mr H,

This property is in an isolated position down some very narrow roads, it has amazing sea views and is quiet and relaxing.

mrs C,

Great for a couple to have a short break away in the countryside, location is stunning overlooking the sea in it's own private spot

Mr S,

This property is very remote if you are looking to get away from city life I would recommend 100% you are about a 5 mile walk going to lynton. This is going along the coastal path which has amazing views and on a clear day you can see over to Wales. The sound of the waves from the lodge is really relaxing especially when led in bed or just relaxing out on the balcony.

mr G,

Lovely holiday lodge with amazing views overlooking the sea.

Mr R,

The Lodge, its location and the surrounding area of Woody Bay exceeded our expectation and it was a fantastic short break.

Mr T,
