This Victorian terrace is situated on the corner of Barton Gate Lane in the delightful seaside resort of Combe Martin, at the point where Exmoor National Park and the North Devon AONB meet. With a beautiful interior displayed over three floors and your very own private, an enclosed patio at the rear, what more could you ask for in a revitalising break to Devon. Entrance is gained straight from the main street, which leads down to the shops, pubs and general liveliness of this bustling village - a great base for exploring the surrounding region. Kick-off your walking boots and hang up your coats, before admiring the beautiful Victorian tiled floor in the porchway. The bright and attractive kitchen plays host to integrated fixtures and glossy white tiles. The dining room adjoins the lounge, which is ideal for family mealtimes and entertaining, with a good-sized dinner table and bright turquoise sofas to relax on. Choose to enjoy breakfast in the conservatory, or perhaps you might like to venture outside for a spot of alfresco dining. The first floor inside, occupies a king-size room with an en-suite shower and decorative fireplace. This level also plays host to a generous bathroom and a child's single room. Climb to the top and find another king-size double and twin room, both served by a separate shower room. Outside the sheltered patio benefits an elevated decking area, so you can sit out and indulge a sunny afternoon with a refreshing drink in hand. An 8-minute walk will take you straight down to the beach at Combe Martin, which is flanked by some of the highest sea cliffs in England. The sand and shingle cove is ideal for picnics on the sand or as a launch point for sea kayaking and fishing in the bay - you may even spot a dolphin or two! The village is home to its very own Wildlife and Dinosaur Park, which makes a great day out for the family, as well as long walks along the South West Coast Path. A selection of pubs, cafes, restaurants and shops can be found on a gentle stroll down towards the beachfront. There are many delightful North Devon towns and villages further afield, just waiting to be explored. Dive into surfing at Woolacombe if you're feeling particularly adventurous, and visit some of the numerous National Trust properties peppering the region. This is the ideal base to return to, at the end of each fun-filled day.
Combe Martin exemplifies the best of both worlds lying on the edge of Exmoor National Park and the North Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty while being on the popular North Devon coast. It is home to Combe Martin Beach, a sandy sheltered beach with some rocks to one side that is perfect for rockpooling that accepts pets between October and April. For a bit more seclusion take a 2km walk (steep in places) to Wild Pear Beach a very pretty cove protected by cliffs with more golden sands to enjoy. A visit to Combe Martin Wildlife and Dinosaur is a must, set in beautiful surroundings with streams and waterfalls with a diverse collection of animals including meerkats, wolves, triceratops and brachiosaurus! No fewer than 10 gardens are within travelling distance as well as a host of National Trust properties you may need to stay an extra week to take everything in.
