The Hide is a beautifully presented self-contained property attached to the owners own home which is situated just on the outskirts of the pretty village of West Down. As the name suggests the property is surrounded in wildlife such as Red deer, woodpeckers, buzzards and herons etc. The stunning North Devon Coastline is just a short drive away with Woolacombe Beach being approx. 3 miles away and the world famous Saunton Sands Golf Course and beach only 6 miles. The property is ideal for couples wishing to ‘get away’ from it all, but is an ideal place from which to explore all that North Devon has to offer including Exmoor National Park and the surrounding towns including Ilfracombe which offers excellent eateries including a Michelin star restaurant, beautiful harbour views and Damien hursts famous ‘Verity’ statue.

The property has been updated and renovated to a very high standard with outstanding panoramic views across the rolling countryside. The fully equipped kitchen area including DeLonghi coffee machine overlooks the lawned garden and has wooden beams and oak flooring. The open plan lounge/dining area has been tastefully furnished and has a large comfy corner sofa, tiffany style lamps, dining table and chairs for 2 and wood burner for cosy evenings in. A conservatory room offers additional space with rattan furniture ideal for relaxing with a good book or just taking in the beautiful views. The double bedroom has built in wardrobes, TV, USB plugs, a dressing area with dressing table/desk area, for those that may need to work whilst away.

Lovely well equipped property ideal for our first break without boys for over 2 years. Beautiful garden and ideally placed to visit various places in North Devon. Lovely food and beer at the Crown Inn at West Down. Well worth a day trip at RHS Rosemoor and Dartington Crystal. Nice walks at Woolacombe around Morte Point and Hartland Quay. Lovely cream tea at Lynmouth. Thanks again for the lovely stay and welcome pack!

Mr W,

A lovely holiday home, well appointed with lots of extras, and welcoming feel, we enjoyed the very pretty garden where lots of birds kept us entertained as they made the most of the feeding stations, a good position to tour that corner of North Devon. we would highly recommend this property.

Mrs C,

We stayed here this June. Absolutely superb property. Very clean tidy with excellent facilities in the property. The owners are very friendly and gave us good information on things to do in the area. Views are lovely across open countryside.

Mr T,

A perfect holiday property, amazing views and the house was beautifully furnished. The owners were extremely helpful. We hope to go back again.

Mrs K,

The Hide is a wonderful property for two people. It is very quiet and peaceful with a lovely large garden for guests to use. It is very spacious, very well equipped, spotlessly clean and with masses of storage space in the bedroom. Private parking is available at the side of the property and it is within a short driving distance to the north devon coast. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend The Hide without reservation.
