The Old Roundhouse is a unique escape in sumptuous accommodation, the perfect holiday retreat in genuine peace and tranquillity. This stunning, spacious, detached barn conversion with original roundhouse enjoys total seclusion within its own large gardens on the edge of the owner’s farm, with no near neighbours. Nestling in this designated AONB, uninterrupted and magnificent views of the surrounding countryside abound and lovely walks can be enjoyed from the property. A 10-minute walk over the owner’s fields and woods leads to Hartland village with shops, three pubs and a lovely coffee shop. Sandy Spekes beach is just over a mile walk. A fabulous, picturesque, hidden treasure, great for rockpooling and surfing. The owners have maintained many original features - exposed internal stone walls, beams and wonderful slate floors with underfloor heating throughout. Everything has been thought of to ensure an incredible holiday to please everyone. The Old Roundhouse is a really special holiday home and a warm welcome awaits with complimentary chilled beer and wine, cream teas, fresh flowers and toiletries - all ingredients for a well earned break. The stunning World Heritage coastline abounds with family activities, from pretty beaches to hidden coves, once the haunt of smugglers. Hartland Abbey is worth a visit, as is the famous Clovelly. Bude and Bideford are within easy reach with their shops, attractions and leisure pursuits. Shops ½ mile.

It’s a really nice cottage. A bit overpriced and more removed than expected. Spacious and well equipped. The games room needs some attention - replacing of broken stuff - but was serviceable. The rooms were all good though and the kitchen, dining, and lounge areas were great.

The house is about 10 minutes drive from the main road along a single lane road. The weather was rainy that week so we couldnt take the short footpath route to the amenities so the location wasn't convenient as we had to drive all the way around to get to the village. The house is well equipped but bed linen and towels need renewing. House was a little dusty when we arrived like it hadn't been occupied for a while. All said we would stay there again as the house has a nice homely feeling and the owner was very friendly and helpful

A remarkably well equipped and comfortable home in a picturesque setting. The games room was a big hit with the children and the hot tub was enjoyed by all. The short walk to the local amenities in the village was a little tricky for a pushchair, but otherwise access was no problem. A lovely holiday for us all 
