The property

Resting amidst the rolling hills of North Devon, on the outskirts of the market town of Holsworthy, is this idyllic property, The Shippen.

The annexe to the owner’s property is ideal for a couple or a small family seeking a traditional holiday to Devon, with access to both coast and countryside within striking distance.

After an action-packed afternoon, open up the front door to be welcomed into an open-plan living room, where the exposed beams fill the room with character and complement the quality furnishings and everything you could possibly need during a week-long break.

The spacious kitchen is ideal for packing a picnic for exploring the rolling hills or even catering your own delicious evening meals that be enjoyed at the dining table.

After dinner, look forward to sinking into the plush sofa and throw a log on the fire before tuning into the TV, creating the perfect ambiance to unwind before heading to bed.

The property is completed by two well-presented bedrooms, comprising of a double bedroom and a twin bedroom which are serviced by a shower room with walk-in shower, basin and WC.

Spend a moment or two outside, where a spot of alfresco dining can be enjoyed with the BBQ sizzling the background, as you soak up the countryside setting.

If you can tear yourself away from this quaint hideaway, a short car journey will bring you to the market town of Holsworthy, where a vast array of amenities awaits you, catering to all needs.

For those feeling active, look forward to walking along the Tarka Trail and admire the ever-changing scenery along the way, including a rugged moorland and a dramatic coastline.

Alternatively, spend your days lazing on the glorious sands found along the Cornish coastline, with the nearest beach located 16 miles away in Bude or venture further afield to the town of Barnstaple or to the majestic Dartmoor National Park.

The Shippen promises to be a refreshing break away from daily routines in an idyllic position.
