Couples will love this former coach house that has sea views from the first-floor lounge and is within walking distance to the beach, shops, restaurants, as well as having your own private hot tub.

This former coach house offers stylish reverse level accommodation within the grounds of the owner’s home, yet your privacy is assured. Located close to the village of Northam, and within walking distance to Westward Ho! with its golden sands and surf school. Northam Burrows Country Park which provides a wonderful backdrop for scenic walks amongst the sand dunes are just next to the beach. The pretty village of Appledore is just a short drive away and makes a lovely place to spend an afternoon watching the boats in the harbour or perhaps catching the ferry across the estuary to Instow. The larger town of Bideford is also close by, with a range of independent shops scattered along its narrow streets.

This property is accessed on foot through double gates and into the private courtyard. Stepping into the kitchen/diner, where the kitchen area itself is impressive and decorated with cool neutral tones, giving a seaside feel, well-equipped with a combi microwave oven and induction hob, fridge with ice compartment, Tassimo coffee machine and dishwasher to do all the work for you, you have everything you need. Through to the dining area enjoy a romantic meal or a lazy breakfast and make use of the Bose speaker available. Leading off the kitchen/diner is the bedroom which has doors leading out the courtyard and has a king-size bed which benefits from Hilary blinds and an en-suite shower and WC. A flight of stairs from the dining area leads you to the first floor where you will find a relaxing lounge area with Smart TV/DVD, sea views and a wood burner effect electric fire for those cooler evenings, its a great spot to sit and relax with a good book overlooking the burrows and to the sea beyond.

Heading outside there is a patio courtyard with table and chairs in front of the kitchen entrance and more relaxing rattan style furniture next to the hot tub, a perfect place to sit out and enjoy pre dinner drinks. There is parking provided for one car outside the double gates.

There is a long list of 'actions' to do on leaving which are a bit over the top and should be part of the rental tariff. I would suggest it should be made clearer at the point of rental (9.30am earlier check out was introduced for COVID, to allow more cleaning time). I see many of these are part of the professional cleaning task, particularly the dRead moreeep clean and washing of the bedding. Happy to strip beds to help, general clean and place remaining cutlery/crockery in the dish washer. Hide
