Cottage | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 8
Horizon, our fabulous three-storey Victorian seafront home is conveniently located on the South West Coastal Path, with Newberry Beach just a few steps from the front door. From the house you can enjoy uninterrupted, spectacular views across the cove and sea, or lie in bed listening to the waves roll in as you drift off to sleep. Situated on a peaceful, no through, beachfront road, the holiday cottage is also only a few hundred yards from the main village beach, pubs and shops of Combe Martin. It offers 'a little bit of heaven by the sea' in which to relax or explore all that the area has to offer.
Horizon is an exceptional property, furnished with your comfort in mind and retaining many wonderful Victorian features. Tastefully decorated, with original artwork on the walls, it is a stylish holiday home with a relaxed feel. Particular attention has been paid to provide those extra touches that allow guests to settle in quickly, such as an extremely well equipped kitchen, quality bed linen, and buckets, nets, DVDs, books, games etc. to keep the children amused.
New for 2014 – Horizon has been sympathetically extended to the rear of the property to include two new stylish shower rooms, one of which is ensuite to the second floor double bedroom. The accommodation comprises of an entrance hall, sitting room, separate dining room, downstairs cloakroom, fully fitted kitchen, bathroom with separate bath and shower, two new shower rooms and four bedrooms (sleeping 8 people plus a baby in a travel cot). Ideal for two families to share as there are two bedrooms on the first floor plus the family bathroom, and two bedrooms on the second floor plus the two new shower rooms, providing lots of space. The house is fully central heated with constant hot water and a cosy open log fire in the sitting room. There is wifi available via a broadband connection (15mbps, unlimited downloads, nominal fee), as well as freeview and freesat TV in the sitting room and also in the master bedroom (several movie channels) and freeview TV in the dining room.
An elevated patio at the front of the property overlooks the sea and Newberry Beach, gets the afternoon sun, has patio furniture and is ideal for that relaxing 'sundowner' at the end of a fun packed day. To the rear of the house, another patio enjoys the sun most of the day. There is off street parking for two cars in tandem at the rear of the property, which is a rare find among beachfront houses and a major bonus during the school holidays. There is also unrestricted on street parking on the lane to the front of the house.
The traditional seaside village of Combe Martin nestles on the edge of Exmoor National Park where the rolling countryside meets the dramatic Bristol Channel. It is an ideal holiday location for families and adults alike, with a wealth of attractions and spectacular beaches within easy reach. As well as lots of outdoor activities, there are a good selection of village shops, cafes, a deli and pubs within easy walking distance of the house. All this within three hours drive of London to the east, or Birmingham and the Midlands to the north.

The West Country region
You can spend lots of time on Newberry beach with it's rock pools (great for catching crabs), stream (great for creating dams) and it's caves. The main village beach can be reached across the rocks and sand at low tide, or via a 2 minute walk just around the corner on the coastal path (there is a pavement from the house round to the main beach). If you want spectacular large sandy beaches and water sports head to the west to Woolacombe (15 minutes drive) & Croyde (25-30 minutes drive). Ilfracombe (5 minutes drive west) offers a lovely harbour area with Damien Hirst's restaurant (The Quay), whilst the picturesque villages of Lynmouth and Lynton with their water powered Victorian cliff railway are a short drive to the East.
Walking & Fly Fishing:
There are great walks locally (the famous one being to Great Hangman – the highest cliff in England) and Horizon is located right on the South West Coastal Path. Wistmoorland Reservoir a 10 minute drive (6 miles) from the house has numerous easy walking trails (especially designed with disabled access in mind), plentiful picnic spots and an interactive visitor centre with outdoor play equipment. The reservoir is well stocked with rainbow trout and offers day and half day fishing permits at very reasonable rates.
This is your nearest large town with shops and seafront area. The harbour area is nice to amble around and the streets running up from this have some good pubs and restaurants. Various boat trips are available from the quayside offering everything from deep sea and mackerel fishing to wildlife spotting coastal tours and day trips to Lundy Island to see the puffins.
Walking, golfing, water sports, horse riding, children's theme parks, boat trips, fishing, historical visits. The list is endless! The renowned dinosaur and wildlife park is at the top of the village, whilst Watermouth Castle with its theme parks (best for 3-10 year old) is only 2 miles along the road going to Ilfracombe from Horizon.
