Foinavon – the perfect holiday home, whatever the season, whatever the weather. You'll have plenty of space to yourselves
You've travelled south, towards the sun. You've crossed the water, you've arrived on a beautiful holiday Island, without all the hassles of going abroad.
Now, you've just opened the door to your holiday home. You parked in your own space on the drive and walked down the steps, you're now out of sight of everyone. Private and peaceful.
You wanted a private, clean, bright, thoughtfully designed, well equipped base for your holiday, conveniently positioned for the beaches or exploring the Island. That's what we've tried to create for you here.
In from the secure porch, now look around – either side of you are the two light, airy bedrooms, each room is of equal size, one with a King-size bed, the other, a pair of full-size 3' singles, complemented by all matching drawer and bedside units, also double wardrobes, more than adequate mirrors and a dressing top. A choice of soft lights and reading lamps. Vertical blinds and thick curtains for a good night's sleep. `
Through the hall, with mirrors bouncing the daylight around, to the cosy sitting room, with it's patio door revealing THAT VIEW. East facing, for the morning sun, not a building in sight, looking across the lowlands of the RSPB reserve to Culver Down beyond. Step through the door onto the balcony, there's only the side neighbours visible. This is a perfect spot for breakfast, perhaps?
Back into the room, you see the two comfy settees, facing both the view and the swivel wall mount TV. Also a DAB radio (with bluetooth to play your own music through), and a USB wall socket for your phone charging (fast WiFi from our fibre connection working right throughout the place).
On the shelves you'll find a good range of leaflets and flyers about the many varied attractions of the Island, some maps and even some local history books, if you're interested.
Also off the hall is the white, fully tiled bathroom – with the view – but it's private, none of your windows can even be seen from less than 200m. The shower has a big, fixed rainfall head as well as a flexible handset, over a P shape bath, with glass screen. Immediate, mains-pressure, hot water in this house, too, so no waiting for taps to run hot.
Next you find the fully equipped kitchen, with full sized fridgefreezer, oven and hob for those who want to cook, Bosch dishwasher for everyone (and microwave, naturally). All the cooking and eating utensils you could need, a Bistro table – breakfast or dinner for two, or children's activities, maybe. The view as well, of course.
From the kitchen, you pass through a utility room with Bosch washing machine, lines available outside – we'll tumbledry for you, if you ask.
Now, down some steps, and pause for a WOW. This is one huge conservatory, and it has casual seating for your whole party as well as a proper dining table and four chairs. Oh Yes -and a big, fully mosaic-tiled, in-ground spa at the far end, just ready and waiting for you to use it! This is actually an eight seater design, so the four of you will have plenty of space.
The whole garden is exclusively yours, too. So step out onto the pergola deck, then the lawn. That little summerhouse? That's for you, too. A pair of director chairs and somewhere to put your coffee. A perfect little spot.
There really is something for everyone at Foinavon, whatever the season.
From totally private sunbathing on the top lawn, to full central heating.
From birdwatching to stargazing – totally dark skies to the east, at the back.
From a short, easy drive to the beach, to Christmas dinner in the conservatory.
There will always be something to suit you.
Included in your rental is :- bed linen (changed weekly for longer stays), duvets (choice of weight), towels – personal and bath size. We also leave you mattress toppers, just in case the beds don't suit. (not every bed can suit everybody) All cutlery, crockery and cooking requirements, electric, hot water, central heating etc.
We just don't believe in making extra charges.
All you need to bring with you is your personal requisites, clothes and spa/beach towels.
Foinavon was built in the 1960's as a detached bungalow, where we raised our family in comfort.More recently an upper storey was added as a completely separate living unit, which is where we now live. Foinavon itself was replumbed, rewired and modernised throughout, with all new kitchen and bathroom, to bring it up to date to suit it's new purpose and give you the best experience we can offer.
