Nestling within glorious North Devon countryside, yet less than 5 miles from beaches and the breathtaking coastal path, this spacious, detached farmhouse is the perfect holiday choice for family and friends wishing to unwind. With stunning views across the valley and 87 acres of pastureland, which guests are free to walk, West Ashridge offers a relaxing holiday choice from which to explore this delightful area. Approached by a private road, it has been restored retaining lots of character and features exposed beams, inglenook fireplaces with electric ‘wood-burners,’ alcoves and curved walls. It overlooks its own garden with children’s Wendy house. The sunny patio is the perfect spot for a lazy breakfast, or why not make use of the barbecue cabin for all-weather al-fresco dining, and at the end of a busy day relax in the hot tub. The nearby converted barn is a games room and offers table tennis, ¼-size snooker table, table football and air hockey. Just 2 miles away is the historic port of Bideford, with its variety of shops, pubs and restaurants, and from where regular sailing trips to Lundy Island can be taken. The fishing villages of Instow, Appledore and Clovelly are close by, as are a host of other quaint villages, each with its own unique character, charm and welcoming inn. The Tarka Trail passes close by and offers walking and cycling along the estuary with cycle hire available. Within easy driving distance is Hartland, where the English Heritage coastline has been designated an AONB. RHS Rosemoor Gardens, Tapley Park, Dartington Crystal, The Big Sheep and The Milky Way are all popular family attractions. The area is a must for surfers and beach lovers. Westward Ho! can be reached in 15 minutes. Fishing, sailing, horse riding and golf are available locally, and Exmoor National Park is within easy reach. Shops 2 miles, pub 1 mile.
