Nestling between Berrynarbor and Ilfracombe in one of the most beautiful coastal areas of North Devon, a new look Whimbrels awaits guests in 2017 with the holiday home undergoing a major transformation this winter. The architect has created new accommodation including an additional floor and the imaginative design maximises the enviable location with breathtaking panoramic sea views and also overlooking Watermouth Castle.
The house has been extended at one end to provide new living space including a viewing room and garden suite room and a whole new floor offers two new bedrooms with ensuite facilities. A new safari lodge style balcony wraps itself around Whimbrels with a feature octagon promontory.
Surrounded by gardens, Whimbrels has its own heated outdoor swimming pool in an enclosed setting enjoying splendid views over the coastline, perfect for a splash in the summer sunshine. The garden benefits from an extensive paved patio complete with breeze house, another way to enjoy outdoor living.
The hallway on the ground floor leads into the large L-shaped kitchen/living/dining room with an expanse of picture windows taking full advantage of the stunning sea views. Outside is a wrap around balcony terrace. On this level is the new viewing gallery a perfect place to admire the view, year round. In addition there are two bedrooms ? a twin bedroom and a king bedroom (with TV built into the bed), both with ensuite and also a boot room at the back of the kitchen.
On the lower ground floor is a good size games room complete with pool table and table football plus a a separate sitting room. The garden room with sofa seating can be accessed from these two rooms. On this level you will also find two further bedrooms (both with ensuites). The king bedroom with French doors opens out on to the terrace. The other bedroom is a twin. The family bathroom is a real indulgence with a deluxe Jacuzzi spa bath with WiFi and mood lighting.
On the first floor you will find the master bedroom with superking and magnificent sea views. A second bedroom is furnished with a king. Both bedrooms have ensuite facilities.
If you can tear yourself away from this wonderful home there is so much to explore nearby. Enchanting Watermouth Cove is within a short stroll, with its gently sloping shoreline and abundance of rock pools, this naturally sheltered harbour is a popular mooring for colourful boats of all shapes and sizes. Watermouth Castle is one of North Devon's premier attractions and offers something for all the family, while the nearby Dinosaur and Wildlife Park is a favourite with children. The Old Sawmills Inn, a character pub and restaurant was refurbished in 2016 and is nearby and there is a choice of pubs, restaurants and shops in Ilfracombe and Combe Martin just a few minutes drive away. With Exmoor National Park to the east, a choice of golden sandy blue flag beaches to the west and with miles of stunning coastal and countryside scenery to enjoy all around, Whimbrels is ideal for extended families or families to holidaying together and will help create wonderful holiday memories for years to come.
