Warcombe Farmhouse sleeps nine guests in four bedrooms and is a spacious rural retreat ideal for large groups of family or friends who want to holiday together or celebrate a special occasion. Sitting in an elevated position on the hillside above the North Devon seaside village of Lee Bay, this delightful Devon long house guarantees a holiday that will always be remembered.
A superb example of a period home which oozes charm and character, this five hundred year old farmhouse has been lovingly renovated, and retaines many of its fantastic original features, perfectly mixed with modern conveniences to ensure a high level of comfort. With large bright rooms, a southerly aspect and a sweeping garden which is ideal for alfresco dining and secluded sunbathing, this is a perfect retreat at any time of the year.
Positioned away from the lane, Warcombe Farmhouse offers peace and tranquillity, where the only sounds that will disturb your silence are bird song and the rustling of the leaves in the trees. A place where you can escape the hustle and bustle of every day life, whilst staying in touch with the outside world should you want to, with Wi-Fi.
The farmhouse sits just a mile from the village of Lee Bay where the beach can provide hours of fun and entertainment. The little ones will love the rock pools for crabbing and romantics can enjoy leisurely strolls and when the tide is out, you can wander round to Bath Beach or Sandy Cove (also accessible by the coastal path so you won't get cut off if you stay too long!). There is also a very good family friendly pub serving tasty food (The Grampus Inn which also doubles up as a shop and post office) and for a wider selection of eating establishments, Woolacombe with its beautiful golden sands and clean water is just minutes away by car. The Victorian resort of Ilfracombe is also nearby offering a whole host of attractions including Landmark Theatre, Damien Hirst's controversial statue and trips on a glass bottom boat to Lundy Island to see the puffins - a must for wildlife lovers.
With a vast array of footpaths to explore including the famous South West Coastal path and the Tarka Trail, there are excellent walking opportunities in the surrounding location which is designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Lovingly called 'Fuchsia Valley', the surrounding countryside bursts into life in the summer months when the hedgerows are ablaze with colour. With the Atlantic Ocean shimmering in the background, there is no finer setting for a holiday by the sea.
