Baywatch offers excellent accommodation with modern facilities in a peaceful setting overlooking Widemouth Bay. Located a stone’s throw from the beach, within easy striking distance of all amenities.
With two bedrooms and a bathroom on each floor, this is the perfect holiday home for one or two families or a group of friends wanting their own space in a stylish and comfortable home in quiet breathtaking location.
Two of the bedrooms are located downstairs, completely private and very quiet with garden views. The lower downstairs king size room has access to the patio and garden area from the French windows. The upstairs bedrooms are more accessible for those with mobility issues and with young children who might need quick and easy access to the kitchen without disturbing the lower bedrooms.
An open plan living area upstairs provides a spacious, comfortable and communal area ideal for families or groups to enjoy together. The living area leads out onto a large balcony area complete with dining table and seating for 8, which overlooks the waves, cliffs and fields of Widemouth Bay.
Baywatch is situated within walking distance of a couple of great restaurants, a fabulous daily fresh fish counter at the local “corner shop” and is within a five minute drive along the coastal road to Bude.
In 2016 we began the mammoth task of turning this modest 2 bed detached bungalow into a contemporary 4 bed house set over 2 levels. This transformation saw the addition of 2 new bedrooms, another family bathroom, an additional dining area, utility room, hallway and extended open plan living area complete with a large balcony. We have still managed to retain a sizeable garden area with a spacious patio and lawn area, including a swing and trapeze bar for the little ones!
Main entrance through to a bright and airy roof lit hallway complete with glimpses of the sea and countryside views that await.
The hallway leads to a spacious open plan kitchen (with separate utility room), dining and living space which occupies the full width of the house at the rear. The large patio doors in the living area open out onto a large balcony with breathtaking sea and country views of Widemouth bay and the lower private garden area. There is a dining table and seating for 8 people on the balcony. The kitchen has an island and sit up stools for the maximum use of the space. There is a stylish wood burning stove which sits between the kitchen and sitting areas to keep the area feeling cosy even on those cooler summer evenings. The sitting area has a couple of roomy and comfortable leather sofas. The dining area has breathtaking views of the surf breaking at Camel Rock in Widemouth bay.
On this level there is a master king bedroom, a double bedroom and a contemporary bathroom with spacious walk in shower, W/C and basin unit.
The bright and airy grand staircase leads to the newly built lower level which comprises a master king bedroom, a twin bedroom and a family bathroom with bath, overhead shower, W/C and double basin unit. The master bedroom has French windows which lead out onto the patio area “sun trap” of the garden.
The garden area comprises a recently landscaped patio and lawn area. In the day the garden becomes a “sun trap” where you can enjoy the sunshine in privacy, thanks to the high surrounding fences. There is a corner sofa and dining table complete with pull up stools to comfortably accommodate 8, ideal for dining al fresco. There is a board rack and heated outdoor shower area in the garden, which is perfect to warm up and clean off after enjoying the surf and sand a short walk away!
