High above Bideford, deep within the Devon dream

Set in a yawning acreage of perfect parkland, River Hall sits high above Bideford Bay and deep within the Devon dream. Amid rugged beauty, rolling hills and an ever-changing estuary, River Hall is a quintessential country Estate that's party-palatial yet family-friendly. Effortlessly elegant and warm and welcoming.

River Hall sleeps 22 with room for a few more children, and for seven more guests in the Coach House. There's oodles of downstairs space to enjoy, entertain and escape in, including a country kitchen with all the mod cons and a stunning dining room for elegant eating. Tustle over eleven stunning ensuite bedrooms, all with a touch of quirky and most with spectacular views over rolling Devon hills and the Torridge estuary.

Break the rustic hush with the clink of a flute glass on the terraces. Fire up the barbie. Spread out across the classic English lawns. Challenge the family to a game of croquet. Work up a thirst on the tennis court – or a deep sleep. Take the Nature Trail through the woods and fields down to the river.

Beyond the manicured grounds and wild woodlands lies the rugged North Devon coast. Punctuate your break with a trip to Westward Ho! Split the difference between Britain and America on lonely Lundy Island. Walk the coastal path, ride the waves, take a white-knuckle ride on white water, try a wine tour, shoot some golf or clay pigeons, fish, or just reel in some real ale.

North Devon Beaches and Villages

The “little white town” of Bideford is a lovely coastal village close to River Hall. It's the perfect spot to potter about and treat yourselves to an ice cream. Along the coast, the villages of Appledore and Clovelly are picture perfect English seaside villages.

At Westward Ho! there are two miles of wonderful sandy beach where you can enjoy swimming, surfing, canoeing and kite surfing. The South West Coastal Path and the Tarka Trail are close by - a must for cyclists and walkers.

Try out a few watersports at Croyde Bay, part of the beautiful heritage coastline of North Devon and one of the UK's favourite surfing beaches. Croyde village is a charming hamlet of thatched cottages with many places to eat, buy gifts and great for hiring beach equipment and wetsuits.

Lying at the entrance to the Taw-Torridge Estuary, Braunton Burrows is one of the most important sand dune systems in Britain and forms the core of a Biosphere Reserve. And it's a lot of fun to explore.

A short drive away is Saunton Sands, one of Devon's most memorable beaches, Saunton Sands is an impressive expanse of flat sand stretching for three miles backed by massive sand dunes and very popular with families and surfers.
