Situated in the heart of the village of Croyde, Barncott is just a stroll from the wonderful selection of facilities, surf shops and family friendly pubs including the popular Thatch pub directly opposite. A pleasant 10 minute walk along a footpath from the cottage leads to the magnificent surfing beach at Croyde. The three mile surfing beach at Saunton and championship golf course, are also just a few minutes car drive away.
Entering Barncott through the stone porch you are immediately drawn into this quaint property with its slate floor, exposed stonework and original beams. Straight ahead and up 3 steps is the good sized family kitchen. A large window looking out to the garden creates a light room with expandable table and chairs for informal meals and snacks. There is plenty of storage and work space making it quite a social room during meal preparation. The kitchen itself is well equipped with large upright fridge, further fridge freezer and laundry facilities as well as usual kitchen equipment plus a Nespresso machine. Opening off the kitchen is the dining area with comfortable seating for 8. French doors lead out into the private garden, which is well designed giving everyone space and is easily supervised for children to play. Decking leads around the side of the lawn to the delightful hydro massage hot tub. If you can bear to extract yourself from the bubbles the adjacent patio table, chairs and parasol stand ready and waiting for alfresco meals cooked on the barbecue. The garden itself is fully enclosed with a gated entrance, child’s play area and an outdoor shower to wash off after the beach.
The cosy living room/snug includes a comfortable leather corner sofa, slate flooring with rugs, smart TV/DVD (with a huge DVD library) and Apple TV box. A glass panelled door provides an additional entry into the dining area and enables the snug to be closed off. The tasteful ground floor family bathroom has a slipper bath, walk-in shower, WC and basin as well as under floor heating.
Stairs lead up to a split landing on the first floor. Three steps up to the right lead into the master bedroom with super king bed and original beams, exposed stonework and pine furniture. A good size light and airy en-suite shower rooms leads off from the bedroom. Care should be taken with the lower door frame height into this room. Bedroom two (the surf room) is also three steps up from the main stairs and to the left. A stairgate is provided for this room which has twin beds with zip ‘n’ link option to super-king. The room is a good size with vaulted ceiling, exposed stonework and beams. Further steps lead up to bedroom three which has bunk beds, double below and single above. Bedroom 4 is another super king with twin option. Stairs within the bedroom provide access to an open storage area with travel cot and child’s buggy available for visitors use.
Croyde is a wonderful location for a family beach holiday or a Spring/Autumn surf trip, however the outstanding beauty of Exmoor including Lynton and Lynmouth and the market town of Barnstaple are all within a half hours drive.
