A majestic country house on the north Devon coast, Watermouth Bay House is an enchanting offering for up to 12 lucky guests, with panoramic sea-views and a heated pool!

The living spaces are wonderfully open-plan, joining a large lounge area with an enormous sofa in front of the TV with the dining table for 12, which in turn connects to a huge kitchen with all the facilities you could wish for! Along the walls of the room are countless patio doors, allowing the fresh glow of daylight to flow through the interiors and bring in the scents and sounds of the natural world beyond! The kids (and big kids!) will be delighted to find a pool table, table tennis and games room with darts and a TV onsite, providing endless hours of entertainment!

Each of the six magnificent bedrooms has something a little charming and unique, and many include terrace access, while all feature a TV so you can get comfy and settle in for a film or an episode in your own private space. We adore the first-floor bedroom with its own private lounge with magnificent views over the countryside and out to the sea! The attic room is for two incredibly lucky guests, with so much room and sublime views from the full wall of skylight windows and a private terrace! Incredible ensuite facilities for each room include a range of delightful touches, including walk-in rain showers, double-showers and free-standing bathtubs. In the family bathroom you’ll even find a deluxe Jacuzzi spa bath!

And finally, step into your exquisite garden! Perhaps the highlight is the enormous private heated pool, complete with sun-loungers and casual seating around a large pool-terrace! Get your tan on in the sunshine and take a refreshing dip in the pool if you ever get a little too hot. And with two full layers of decking and endless seating options throughout the garden, there are so many incredible options for where to enjoy your time together! Your safari lodge style balcony is the ideal place to enjoy the view in comfort.

The home is tucked between the two wonderful towns of Berrynarbor and Ilfracombe, packed with cafes, restaurants and shops with a rich dollop of Victorian history and modern art! For a day out in nature, head to the stunning Exmoor National Park or admire the colourful boats and rock pools of the Watermouth Cove.

Enjoy the warm, welcoming and easy-going folk of the West Country, and the endless sandy beaches, fossil cliffs, medieval towns and national parks of Devon, a truly unmissable county!

For a perfect day in the fresh air and sunshine, Exmoor National Park and the 954km2 Dartmoor National Park, with their endless rugged moorland, woodland, farmlands and valleys sprinkled with granite tors are ideal for walking, horse riding, mountain biking, climbing and much more! The magnificent Jurassic Coast, comprising 95 miles of coastline with 185 million years of geological history is well worth a visit, with the South West Coast Path running along a large section of it.

If you’re after a traditional English beach trip with the added delight of white sand beaches, turquoise waters, and world-class sailing and surfing, you will not be disappointed! Devon has two separate coastlines: to the south is the English Channel and to the north, the Irish Sea and Bristol Channel.

The sublime English Riviera, a series of picturesque, south-coast harbour towns, is the nickname of the magnificent southern coastline. Torquay is one of the main highlights: a delightful seaside resort town well known for its beaches such as Babbacombe and the cliffside Oddicombe. Torquay Harbour offers shops, cafes and a marina, while the nearby Torre Abbey, a monastery founded in 1196, has art galleries and extensive gardens. The smaller seaside town of Ilfracombe can be found on the northern coastline, and is a small, hilly harbour surrounded by cliffs.

And for a lively city, to the south-east is Exeter on the River Exe, with its Roman era City Walls, vaulted, medieval underground passages and stunning Gothic cathedral, built in the 12th-century. To the west of the county you’ll find the larger city of Plymouth, with a fine display of its maritime tradition in the Barbican’s Tudor and Jacobean buildings and Sutton Harbour’s heritage trail. Both cities have bustling high-streets and lively nightlife thanks to the sizeable student populations!

Notable events in the area include the Devon County Show in Exeter each May, the Dartmouth Royal Regatta in August and the British Firework Championships in Plymouth also in August. 

If flying to the area, Exeter International operates flights between Paris CDG, Amsterdam and countless UK cities, and the nearby Bristol International Airport has nearly 80 destinations.

Watermouth Bay House is an ideal choice for a family getaway, with a games room and huge garden on site, as well as tons of activities to enjoy in the local towns and the vibrant and unspoilt natural landscape of Devon.

For a relaxing afternoon, retire to the wonderful private heated pool where the kids can enjoy some harmless fun and you can keep an eye on them from the comfort of a sun lounger.

Local attractions include ‘The BIG Sheep’ in Abbotsham with fun for all ages, from the Ewetopia Indoor Playground to the Rampage Rollercoaster, as well as Sheep Racing, rides for toddlers, and of course a chance to feed the animals! A cosy café will ensure visitors of all ages will be content, and there’s even an on-site brewery and gin distillery for you to pass the time! Nearby Pennywell Farm is also a great day-trip for some ‘farmtastic’ fun with friendly farm animals, rides and even racing ferrets! Cuddle the piglets, pamper the ponies and meet our adorable hedgehogs. Why not head over for the Pig Racing at 2.30 each afternoon or have a go on the Run Rabbit Go-Karts and Rainbow Railway?!

The kids will adore a trip to Crealy Theme Park: Southwest England's largest theme park with over 60 rides including the Tidal Wave Log Flume, the Flying Dutchman and the Victorian Carousel, attractions, live shows and even a zoo!

In the surrounding landscape you will find endless opportunities for an active day out with all the family: cycle through an array of postcard-picture villages and along the rugged Jurassic coast, enjoy a range of water-sports or experience the fantastic scenery on a hike through the Exmoor or Dartmoor National Parks – be sure to take a picnic, there are endless perfect spots to sit, relax, and take in the breath-taking views!
