The focal point of the apartment is a spectacular lounge / diner with an impressive dining / banqueting area on the lower level and a cosy lounge on the upper level. The seating area in the lounge affords views down to the Italian garden and beyond to rolling fields in one direction and the sea out towards Hartland point in the edge.

Further details outdoors

Being part of the Manor house 'Bliss' has the advantage of providing a private holiday apartment whilst also offering many advantages of being in a large Manor house (6 acres of gardens, Tennis court, terrace with sea views, ample parking, amazing rural / coastal setting)

The England region

The North Devon coast provides a fantastic location for a holiday and Pickwell is the perfect base from which to explore the region. Situated on the ‘Golden Coast’ – an area of ‘Outstanding Natural Beauty’ Pickwell is a few minutes from the coastal path and benefits from breath taking country and sea views. Under an hour from the M5 it also benefits from being one of the most accessible coastal sections of the West Country.

There are a whole host of wonderful places to explore within easy reach by car from Pickwell Manor (or by bike for the more adventurous). We are just 25 minutes from the western section of Exmoor National Park. This is the location of one of favourite walks at Heddon's Mouth (it has everything pub, stream, woodland, beach). Also situated in this part of Exmoor are the historic villages of Lynton and Lynmouth linked by their famous water powered railway and then further north is the village of Dunster with its 11th Century castle which provides a great day out.

Heading inland along the estuary is the Tarka trail cycle path leading from the local village of Braunton through to the market town of Barnstaple and then on to Bideford and Torrington along the old disused North Devon railway network . The route passes through the largely unspoilt countryside as it was described by Henry Williamson in his classic novel ‘Tarka the Otter’.

Going south from Barnstaple where the Taw and Torridge rivers meet is the quaint fishing village of Appledore –known as much these days for its book festival as for its fascinating fishing heritage. Just the other side of Hartland Point is another famous fishing village, Clovelly. Pickwell Manor actually has a sea view looking out towards Hartland. From the gardens we also have a view out towards the island of Lundy - known for its rugged walks and its migratory birds. Day trips can be arranged from nearby Bideford or Ilfracombe.

The area has a number of beautiful National Trust properties including Arlington Court and at Torrington is Rosemoor one of the RHS's flagship gardens.

Croyde

At Pickwell we are completely spoilt with 4 amazing sandy beaches all within a short distance of the Manor. Croyde, Woolacombe, Saunton Sands and Putsborough are spectacular surfing beaches with beautiful golden sand and sand dunes. All the beaches have beach car parks if you don’t want to walk across the fields. You can find a video of the spectacular walk from Pickwell to Putsborough beach on the following link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o6KlMuPTQLw

From Putsborough you can follow the route of the breathtaking coastal path around Baggy Point to Croyde. As you reach Croyde Sandleigh Tea rooms are perfectly situated for a well earned rest and a cuppa or maybe a cream tea http://www.sandleigh.info/ . Alternatively you walk along the 2 miles of sands from Putsborough beach round to Woolacombe beach and back for a perfect afternoons walk.

The hamlet of Pickwell is also just a 10 minute walk to the village of Georgeham (once home to Henry Williamson). In addition to the well stocked village shop & post office its also boasts 2 fantastic pubs The Rock Inn www.therockgeorgeham.co.uk and the Kings Arms www.therockgeorgeham.co.uk. They give any Pickwell Manor guest fantastic dining opportunities on their doorstep. Then just slighly further afield Braunton, Woolacombe and Croyde all have a good selection of restaurants or why not take a trip to the nearby fishing port of Ilfracombe and try Damian Hurst's restaurant No 11 The Quay. If you fancy a dining experience a little more off the grid then you might want to consider the family run Mortehoe Shellfish restaurant just a 15 minute drive along the coast.

The area provides a wealth of opportunities for sporting adventure whether on or off the water. Surfing, kayaking, kite surfing, coasteering, sailing, sea fishing and diving can all be arranged from local beaches or ports. For those who prefer to stay on land then rock climbing, horse riding, cycling, running, mountain biking, shooting and quad biking are all ideal activities that can be pursued locally. For those keen on a round of golf we are less than 15 minutes from Saunton Golf Club - with two championship courses that are amongst the West Country's finest.

Obviously we hope that you will get plenty of warmth and sunshine when you are staying at Pickwell and can get plenty of time on the beach and the freedom to explore without any cares. If however you get the odd rainy day here are a few ideas of activities in the locality:

For younger ones: Ice Skating & 10 pin bowling @Barnstaple; Indoor play centres @Ilfracombe & @Barnstaple; Ceramic painting @Braunton; indoor fun pool and slides @Croyde; Cinemas @Barnstaple & @Ilfracombe

For everyone: Cream tea at Sandleigh NT tea rooms @Croyde; lunch, tea or a glass of something stronger @Saunton Sands Hotel; Broomhill sculpture gardens restaurant and gallery @Muddiford; Arlington Court NT property & carriage museum; Pampering @Woolacombe Bay Hotel (gym, pool, steam room, sauna + spa treatments)
