PROPERTY SLEEPING 14 (OR 16 WITH THE COTTAGE) IN IDYLLIC LOCATION WITH STUNNING VIEWS
In a superb secluded location, set in 3.5 acres of unspoilt countryside, Priory House really does offer the best of both worlds. This impressive detached home is surrounded by stunning rural scenery yet sits only two miles from the principal market town of Barnstaple and just a short drive away from a choice of stunning North Devon beaches. Access to J27 of the M5 is less than an hour away. As soon as you enter through the pillared wooden gates onto the private sweeping driveway, you will know you have arrived somewhere really special to relax and unwind. The spacious contemporary accommodation is light and bright throughout, with high quality furnishings, stylishly presented. A superbly equipped kitchen/dining room has recently been extended and is at the heart of the house, where the whole family can gather for leisurely breakfasts or catch up on the days adventures over dinner. This dual aspect room has French doors opening onto a choice of two terraces, which enjoy the sun at different times of day. Two separate living rooms ensure plenty of space for everyone to relax or play and both have doors which open directly onto one of the terraces which surround the property on all sides for easy access to superb views. The addition of a new 3rd lounge with open fire place creates a further warm and comfy area in which to relax. There are six attractively furnished bedrooms on the first floor. A newly added master suite includes a a king size bed (zip 'n' link to twin on request) and ensuite shower room/wc. A single bed is also available in this room for additional/alternative sleeping. The previous master bedroom features a pretty Juliette balcony, ensuite bathroom and huge walk in wardrobe. There is also a single bed in this room for alternative/additional sleeping. A third king room also benefits from an ensuite shower room. The fourth bedroom is a double aspect room with sleeping options for a family offering great flexibility by way of two zip and link king size beds that can be converted to four singles on request. A fifth bedroom offers twin single sleeping arrangements and the sixth bedroom is a more compact double. A fabulous family bathroom completes the upstairs accommodation.
The grounds which immediately surround the house are mostly lawned, overlooking paddocks and woodland with wonderful views far into the distance. The patio area has been extensively extended and now incorporates a fabulous outdoor fire place, pizza oven, outdoor kitchen, gas barbecue and sink. Use of a hired hot tub is available (please follow link with regarding to hire: https://www.marsdens.co.uk/holiday-extras/15-hot-tub-hire-north-devon-hot-tubs ). Both the lounge and outdoor area have been set up with wireless speakers. An elevated tree house (young children will need to be supervised) will provide amusement for the younger guests and a small orchard is being established in a further corner of the expansive gardens.
A separate building within the grounds has been converted into a gym containing cardio machines and weights. The new conversion has wood flooring, mirrors and sweeping views of the valley. This facility is shared with guests staying at Priory Cottage.
In the grounds just across the gravelled car park there is a delightful self contained cottage that sleeps two with studio living/sleeping area, its own kitchen/diner and shower room. The cottage also has its own lawned garden area.
