This property is perfect for active families who enjoy exploring, walking and surfing, being located near Exmoor National Park and half an hour from some of the best surfing beaches in North Devon.
Devon Priory is a stylish, contemporary property set in the heart of the North Devon countryside, just two miles from the bustling town of Barnstaple and within easy reach of the impressive coastline, which boasts an array of beaches perfect for surfers and walkers. Sleeping twelve guests and with excellent facilities, it is the perfect place to relax and get together with friends or family.
At the heart of this well-designed property is the large kitchen/dining room. The kitchen is well-equipped and stylish, with immaculate, contemporary, gleaming white units. Guests can enjoy socialising at the long breakfast bar – with either a morning coffee or an evening aperitif before sitting together at the solid wood dining table for a meal. Beyond the table sits a large L-shaped sofa, perfect for relaxing after a meal. On warm evenings, throw open the patio doors on both sides of the room to allow a cool breeze to flow in, or stroll outside to take in the evening air. Next to the kitchen is a separate living room with stylish cream leather sofas, and a large Smart TV where guests can unwind after a day out at the coast. Alternatively, head into the games room, a large and comfortably furnished room also with a Smart TV, as well as table football and a piano.
Heading upstairs to the first floor, guests will find six light and airy bedrooms. The master bedroom boasts a king-size zip-and-link bed, a TV, a Juliette balcony and a superb en-suite wet-room. In addition there are four more king-size rooms, two of which also have an en-suite shower room, and there is also a twin room ideal for younger guests. All the rooms are tastefully decorated with crisp, white bedlinen, complemented by a few splashes of colour. A large family bathroom completes the picture – ideal for enjoying an indulgent soak or for bathing the little ones.
Devon Priory has been designed with outdoor living in mind. From one side of the kitchen, guests can stroll out into the secluded patio, which has wonderful views of woodland in the distance and is edged on one side by a superb outdoor kitchen area with a gas barbecue, preparation area and sink. There is also an outdoor fireplace for keeping things cosy, and a pizza oven, making this a perfect outdoor socialising space ideal for family barbecues or pizza nights. From the other side of the kitchen doors open onto a terrace, complete with table and chairs, where guests can perhaps sit and enjoy a light lunch whilst taking in the glorious views of the surrounding countryside. To complete the setting, a man-made stream tinkles along the side of the property creating a pleasant ambience in this idyllic rural setting.
Devon Priory is a superb property for friends and family to relax in style in this beautiful part of North Devon. Airy and comfortable, it offers plenty of space for everyone and is well-equipped for those wanting to spend time outdoors in the fresh air.
