Set in a peaceful and rural area, these Grade II listed cottages are perfect for a countryside escape. Surrounded by beautiful views of the North Devon rolling hills, both properties benefit from an open plan living space whilst maintaining a comfortable, contemporary and bright environment. With everything you need for your holiday including a built-in oven and hob, dishwasher, washing machine, microwave, Nespresso coffee machine and a free-standing fridge/freezer. Located under 4 miles from the village of Buckland Brewer, just under 9 miles from the main village of Bideford and approximately 8 miles from the nearest beach on the north Cornish coast, Higher Thorne is the ideal base for discovering Devon and North Cornwall.
The beaches are a main attraction of the region for many and with some of the best in the UK like Saunton Sands, Woolacombe, Westward Ho! and Croyde being easily reached by car from the property, surfing, windsurfing and lazy sandy days should definitely be on your agenda. The South West Coast Path is also a popular ‘must visit’ for keen runners and walkers! If golf is your thing, then you will be spoiled for choice with excellent courses including the Royal North Devon Club in Westward Ho! which was founded in 1864 and is the oldest golf course in England and the wonderful Championship Links Saunton Club. The popular Tarka Trail can be accessed nearby and provides the unique opportunity to follow a disused railway line by foot or by cycle allowing you to enjoy some of Devon’s finest countryside and scenery while discovering the towns of Barnstaple and Bideford where you can wander during the weekly pannier markets, with a host of local produce, quality cafes and crafts on offer. On your Tarka Trail journey be sure to visit the Fremington Quay Café for a tasty bite to eat and then the estuary-side village of Instow – a must see!
And one place not to forget to visit that is just 11 miles away is the world-famous village of Clovelly with its steep pedestrianised cobbled main street, traditional architecture, donkeys and views over the Bristol Channel. And be sure not to forget to visit Exmoor or Dartmoor National Parks, the former with its magical night skies in Europe’s first ’Dark Sky Reserve’. And for a day with a difference take a trip across to Lundy Island, home to England’s first statutory Marine Nature Reserve due to its unique flora and fauna. Measuring just 3 miles by ¾ mile, this entire island has been designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest and trips depart from Bideford and Ilfracombe. Beach 8½ miles. Pub and restaurant 1½ miles.
There properties can be booked together to accommodate up to 6 guests.
