This dual aspect room has French doors opening onto a choice of two terraces, which enjoy the sun at different times of day. Two separate living rooms ensure plenty of space for everyone to relax or play and both have doors which open directly onto one of the terraces which surround the property on all sides for easy access to superb views.

Location description from owner

The England region

A region full of contrasts and drama, North Devon's status as a holiday hotspot is sealed by the beautiful countryside which provides an ever-changing backdrop for a holiday that's as busy or laid-back as you'd like it to be.

Chocolate box villages and picture-postcard cottages nestle amid rolling landscapes where giant hedges line narrow lanes and the skyline is puntuated only by an occassional church tower or copse of ancient trees. Why stay in one of our Devon holiday cottages in a quaint Devonshire village. Cattle and sheep graze just as they have done for years, casting a lazy eye on walkers and photographers, while the air is heavy with the scent of warm grass and honeysuckle. In the evenings, a great cloak of mist envelopes all, creating an air of mystery and splendid isolation.

Barnstaple

As the premier town in North Devon you’ll find great bars, great restaurants and big name high street shopping. But that’s not what makes Barnstaple special. Not alone. That’s done by the independent boutique shops within the town, the proud local food producers selling their delicious delicacies in the Pannier Market and, of course, the town’s colourful history. It’s this mix of new and old, of modern and traditional that’s behind Barnstaple’s charm. We’d love you to share it with us.

“A wonderfully high standard property for a group holiday, brilliant!”

Reviewed 5 Mar 2013

The property is amazing. Well furnished to a very high standard with all the amenities that you could want for a family holiday. Large kitchen dining space for easy entertaining. Large windows everywhere so that you can enjoy the views from all sides. Great games room for fun and noise. In the main living room, the reclining chairs stole the show, meaning all could sit in comfort and relax at the end of the day. The property is with in very easy reach of the nearest town Barnstaple and a short drive to some wonderful Devon attractions.

“Brilliant house and location”

Reviewed 1 Feb 2013

We enjoyed a fabulous week over Christmas staying in Priory House. The house is in a lovely spot with views across a valley and river. The house is well situated within an easy drive of a number of nice spots on the North Devon coast and close to all the amenities in Barnstaple. The house was large enough to comfortably cater for our extended family. The kitchen, dining and lounge areas gave us ample space to host a large Christmas lunch. The kitchen was well equipped and all the crockery was very nice. The house had been recently and tastefully furnished, including comfortable beds and lounges. The children in particular loved sleeping four in a room. The house was great for the kids too with toys, games, table football, cubby house as well as travel cot, high-chair etc. Having the two living rooms was fabulous on rainy days as the children could play happily in the games room and there was somewhere for the adults to escape. All in all we had a really enjoyable stay and would definitely return.

“A Stunning house perfectly situated”

Reviewed 28 Jan 2013

The house and grounds are stunning and are lovely and safe for young children to play without worry. The house is beautifully decorated and very spacious with plenty of rooms to cater for large groups without feeling in each others pockets. I cannot rate this house highly enough, we had an absolutely wonderful relaxing family holiday, with all the amenities you could wish for.
