It is also only 4 miles from the harbour town of Bideford and also benefits from being only 15 minutes drive from a number of sandy beaches such as Westward Ho! Instow and Saunton Sands. The historical town of Great Torrington, home to the famous Dartington Crystal is also only 15 minutes drive away. Visitors will find plenty of country walks in the vicinity of the property, along with a popular country pub (The Hunters Inn) within short walking distance which has a reputation for excellent food and a wide selection of local ales.

The West Country region

North Devon is a popular tourist destination benefiting from a beautiful coastline, as well as the rugged hills of Exmoor. North Devon is also conveniently located just 30 minutes drive from the M5 so is easily accessible from the rest of the country.

Visitors will enjoy the many beaches (such as Instow, Saunton, Croyde and Woolacombe), the pretty seaside towns (such as Bideford, Coombe Martin and Clovelly) and the traditional villages (such as Exford, Hatherleigh and South Molton).
