The England region

Bordered by Somerset, Dorset and Cornwall, Devon is England's third largest county with nearly 7,000 sq. kilometres of land. North Devon’s coastline is famous for its dramatic cliffs, sandy beaches and great surf, but inland there's also bustling towns and tranquil villages stepped in tradition and the open moorland of Exmoor. There is a lot to see and learn within the beautiful county of Devon.

West Country

From the house you can:

WALK TO: The lovely village of Braunton (reputedly the largest village in the UK) is less than a 5 minute walk from the house. There are some great local restaurants and pubs offering a good variety of food such as At One for Tapas and / or A La Carte menus, Squires Fish & Chips (so good people queue outside the restaurant for their takeaways), The George Pub serving local food and Thai Cuisine and The Riverside with its lovely Italian menu including hand-stretched pizzas. If you’re willing to go slightly further afield (with a car unless you fancy walking up hill!) there’s some lovely eateries in neighbouring suburbs such as the Kings Arms in Georgeham that has a lovely gastro pub menu.

CYCLE TO - cyclists can enjoy the 30-mile Tarka Trail tracking the scenic coastline of North Devon.

DRIVE TO - the beaches of Saunton, Croyde, Putsborough and Woolacombe are only a short drive away. A day at historic Braunton Burrows is great for walkers. Combe Martin Wildlife and Dinosaur Park, The Milky Way and The Big Sheep are all within a short driving distance. For the more adventurous, kite surfing, surfing, horse riding and kayaking are popular sports in the area. Cultural days can be passed at Arlington Court, historic Clovelly Village, Watermouth Castle, Lynton, Lynmouth and many more. Saunton Golf Course is a mere 3 miles down the road with its 2 famous links courses. Finally, picturesque walks through beautiful forested areas and running rivers such as at Watersmeet will complete your wonderful stay in the beautiful part of England.

“A really lovely place to stay!”

Reviewed 7 Aug 2016

We were a party of 6 adults and two children aged 5 and 20 months, but there was plenty of space for all of us. The beds were comfy and clean as was all of the house.the town of Braunton has everything you could need, including a great Fish restaurant called ''Squires" which also has a takeaway service and we particularly liked 'Stoned' a superb pizza place. There are eateries to suit all tastes! Braunton is also a good base for getting around the coastal towns, we liked Tunnel Beach at Ilfacombe, Putsborough, and Saunton beaches are also great for kids. Rock pools etc.

“Perfectly described”

Reviewed 10 Oct 2014

Lovely accommodation with very comfortable beds. Very well equipped. The open plan living space was a real winner for us.

“Excellent Accomodation”

Reviewed 13 Jul 2012

We had a wonderful holiday at Gladstone House a mixture of ages ranging from 64 down to a 7 year old we all loved the house it had everything you could possibly need, very comfortable, tastefully furnished and comfy beds. My granddaughters loved the attic room next to their parents room which by the way had the biggest bed I have ever seen. All the bathrooms were very good especially the wet room and everywhere was very clean. I would recommend staying at Gladstone House, and if you do you must go to Squires Fish Resturant it's a must.

“stunning house”

Reviewed 7 Jul 2012

We stayed here 3 nights in June. The house is of a quality you rarely see in holiday lets, and has been rennovated to an extremely high standard. Both Croyde and Woolacombe were stunning beaches

“Above and beyond our expectations”

Reviewed 27 May 2011

The house was superb, immaculate and very comfortable. The beds were divine and have caused us to upgrade our bedding at home! We found the kitchen very well equipped with both crockery and other utensils. Attention to detail throughout the house made for a really enjoyable stay. We looked forward to being in the house as much as the fantastic countryside and coastline. A wonderful holiday from a genuine holiday maker!
