There is also a washing machine in the utility area, along with hoover, iron & ironing board. The large living room has patio doors which open out onto the decking and offers stunning views across Braunton. It has a sofa bed (to sleep a further guest), two armchairs and a dining table to seat 6. Wifi is also provided at High View and there is a flat screen TV with freeview channels, iplayer & Netflix (which offers hundreds of TV programmes and films on demand).

The large outside decking area has a table and chairs for outside dining. This leads down to a BBQ area and a small lawn. There is an outside shower to freshen up after a long day at the beach and ample storage for wet suits, surfboards and bikes.

There is private parking space for 1 car directly at the front of the house (with road parking for further cars).

High View is conveniently situated within a short, pleasant walk from the centre of Braunton, with its many cafes, bistros, restaurants and surf shops. Being on the Saunton side of the village means it's just a few minutes drive from the magnificent Saunton Sands. Saunton Sands is family and dog friendly and is renowned for some of the best surf in the country. It is also popular for kite surfing, kayaking and paddle boarding. There is a surf hire store at the beach, plus a take-away cafe, ice-cream shop and gift shop. The beautiful Sands Cafe provides indoor and outdoor seating with spectacular views.

In addition, Croyde Bay is a few minutes further on and Putsborough, Woolacombe and Baggy Point (National Trust) are all just another mile or two from Croyde. Braunton Burrows and the Tarka Trail (an off-road cycle track of more than 30 miles) are also within a few minutes' drive or cycle from the property.

The Devon region

The North Devon Atlantic coast offers some stunning scenery including the amazing Saunton Sands beach, which stretches for miles (just a few minutes' drive away).

You can take the public footpath across the historic Great Field leading to the Braunton Burrows and Crow Point – a fantastic area for walking. Then there's the Tarka Trail, which starts from the village - a 30 mile walk or bike track along the river Taw and Torridge using the old railway line. The renowned Saunton Golf Club is also only a short car ride from the property.

The lovely sandy beach of Croyde Bay, great for surfing, is about 10 minutes away by car. The infamous Thatch pub in Croyde is also great for a bite to eat after a day at the beach. You can climb Baggy Point for some amazing views over to Lundy Island. Putsborough Beach is only a 15 minute drive, along with the popular beach and night life at Woolacombe. Barnstaple town has a good shopping high street and old pannier market, plentiful pubs and restaurants to suit all, plus a cinema, theatre, tenpin bowling and leisure centre with gym and 25m pool. The quaint Tarka train line leaves here for the cathedral city of Exeter an hour away.

Whether you are a surfer, kite boarder, wind surfer, paraglider, walker, cyclist or golfer or if you simply want to relax in beautiful surroundings, there is something for everyone close by.

Lovely bungalow - spacious, comfortable, warm & welcoming

  • 5 of 5

The bungalow is in immaculate condition with everything you could want (except a teapot - so we bought one and left it for others!). Very comfortable and well laid out. Excellent shower over the bath.

The decking area was great, like having another room.

Braunton is a lovely village with local shops and some great restaurants within a 10 minute walk.

The museum is well worth a visit, very small but with a varied collection.

We'd recommend both Braunton and High View.

Great little bungalow

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a week so the children could learn to surf. The bungalow is in a great location-5 mins to the small town of Braunton, there are enough places to eat here for a week so no need to drive. It was a ten mins drive to the beach- Saunton-this is one of the nicest beaches I have been to, not too busy and a beach cafe and toilets. The bungalow is immaculate and felt like home the minute we walked in.

Fantastic well-kept property in great location with beautiful view

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous week at High View. The property has been thoroughly modernised and is very well kept. The view from the living room, bedroom and decking was beautiful, and it was great to sit out with a drink after the kids had gone to bed. There were some very nice touches, such as the welcome bottle of wine and coffee, and communicating with the owner was a pleasure. We are surfers and the outside shower made de-sanding kids and wet-suits really easy, and the storage for surf boards was great too. You can walk to the centre of Braunton in around ten minutes and drive to the great beaches at Saunton and Croyde in about the same time. We did not want to leave at the end of our week, and so hope to go back!

Lovely bungalow in a great location. Very comfortable with everything you need.

  • 5 of 5

We loved the location great base for visiting the surrounding area. The verandah is a great place to sit and relax and take in the views. Added bonus is the garden area which was great for catching the evening sun. Helen the owner has made the bungalow very welcoming including the bottle of wine on arrival. Nice walk down to the village with some great places to eat especially Squires fish restaurant.
