A hidden gem, Ratherton House is the perfect choice for a memorable family holiday at any time of year. Tucked away within glorious Devon countryside, just 10 miles from the breathtaking north Cornish coast and its many sandy beaches, this impressive, detached, luxurious house has been refurbished in a light and airy contemporary style, whilst retaining much of its original charm and character. Equipped to a very high standard with most bedrooms having en-suite facilities, there is plenty of space for family and friends to gather, but also to escape to a quiet corner. Pretty gardens surround the property, offering plenty of space for al fresco dining and for the children to let off steam in the play area. With the added luxury of an outdoor heated swimming pool, sun terrace and tennis court, it will be hard to drag yourself away from this unique property.
On the doorstep there is plenty to see and do. Nearby Tamar Lakes has a water sports centre, along with lovely lakeside walks and coarse fishing. The golden sands of Bude and Widemouth Bay are just 10 miles away, with excellent surfing, pretty coves and dramatic coastal walks, along with shopping and leisure facilities, including 10-pin bowling, a wave pool, restaurants, bars and coffee shops. There are numerous National Trust properties in the area, including Arlington Court and Hartland Abbey, as well as the RHS gardens at Rosemoor and Docton Mill.
Holsworthy, 1½ miles, has a good selection of local shops and supermarkets along with a leisure centre and weekly market. There are several good pubs and restaurants close by to have a break from the cooking, and for family fun the Big Sheep and the Milky Way adventure parks are not to be missed. 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. Shop, pub and restaurant 1½ miles.
