Customers’ Choice Award 2018
Private outdoor heated swimming pool, and hot tub, ideal for walking or cycling with the Tarka Trail only 2 minutes walk away.

This impressive, detached late Victorian merchant’s house enjoys a delightful outlook across the River Torridge to the pretty port town of Bideford with its pastel-coloured houses alongside a tree-lined quay. The house has been completely refurbished in a light and airy contemporary style whilst retaining much of its original charm and character. Equipped to a very high standard and arranged over three floors, there is plenty of space for family and friends to gather, but also to escape to a quiet corner. Pretty gardens surround the holiday property and offer plenty of space for al fresco dining, summer barbecues and for the children to let off steam. The panoramic views from the living areas and many of the bedrooms are breathtaking, and with a fenced 18ft 6in outdoor heated swimming pool, York stone patio with mood lighting, fire pit and teak furniture, hot tub and sheer indulgence of the cinema room with 50in plasma TV, HD projector and 84in screen, surround sound, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PS3, together with two satellite boxes, it will be hard to leave this unique property.
On the doorstep there is plenty to see and do with the famous Tarka Trail 2 minutes’ walk away for walking or cycling. Alternatively, meander around the many delightful shops, pubs and restaurants that Bideford has to offer, with its regular pannier and waterfront markets, all within a 10-minute stroll of the property.
Visitors can take a boat trip to the nature reserve at Lundy Island or explore many pretty fishing villages including nearby Clovelly and Appledore. Instow is just 2 miles away and is a pretty, unspoilt seaside village with large stretches of sandy beaches and dunes, fishermen’s cottages, shops and a good selection of pubs and restaurants specialising in locally caught seafood. The wide, golden sandy beach of Westward Ho!, popular with surfers, is just 3 miles away with Saunton, Croyde and Woolacombe a short drive across the Taw Estuary.
There are numerous NT properties in the area including Arlington and Hartland Abbey, as well as the RHS gardens at Rosemoor and Docton Mill. Hartland Quay and Lighthouse are well worth a visit and for family fun, the Big Sheep and the Milky Way Adventure Parks are close by. Golf, riding, fishing, surfing, mountain boarding, karting and high ropes are available locally and the wild beauty of Dartmoor, Exmoor and Bodmin moors are all within easy driving distance, as is the famous Eden Project. With so much to discover in this lovely part of North Devon, this is the perfect holiday choice. Shops ¼ mile, pubs 300 yards.

    Copperfield is an amazing property and is presented to an extremely high standard. It was spotlessly clean, is equipped to the highest standard possible and sits on the side of a hill overlooking the estuary below. The owners were a delight to communicate with and nothing was too much trouble. We booked the house for a family special birthday, so the age range was from 60 years down to 6 months. The house fully accommodated all our needs for our stay and wouldn't hesitate to visit again, winter or summer. Thank you!

    We booked Copperfield house for my partners 30th and it certainly delivered! It gave the guests the wow factor!! The whole house has little touches that make it so special, from the hot tub and cinema room to Alexa (who was put to good use!) The location was perfect and we had great fun walking the tarka trail to instow. Janet the owner was very friendly and contactable throughout. Our only regret was we didn’t stay for a week!

    Easily the most beautiful house we have ever stayed in. Despite its luxury and size, has a wonderful feeling of home. Beautifully furnished with attention to detail in every room. Something for everyone and plenty of space to find a quiet corner. Loved the pool, the hot tub and everyone enjoyed the cinema room. Fabulous views and walks to local pubs serving great food. Wonderful way to celebrate a birthday with a large group. Amazing comfy beds and quiet neighbourhood, already planning our next stay!

    We were a family of 12 and this was a second visit, apart from the weather it was still a fabulous holiday, the views from the house are brilliant even at night, and the new hot tub was a real treat. The kitchen was great for the amount of meals that we're cooked and having two of everything was a blessing, the bedrooms we're also very comfortable, would definitely go again, thank you.
