The property

The Old Coach House is a grand detached cottage nestled in the beautiful Braunton village, found in one of North Devon's Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

This six bed property is perfect for a large family group who are looking for a base to gather and enjoy a big catch-up in a beautifully scenic area.

Rustle up a mouth-watering brunch buffet in the well-equipped breakfast kitchen, a spacious room which holds two electric ovens, a variety of hobs, coffee maker, dining seating, and even a sofa and wall-mounted TV for those taking a break from cooking.

Patio doors from the kitchen take you to a gorgeous outdoor area with picnic style seating.

Settle down for a family film night in the sitting room as the woodburning stove crackles on a winter's night.

There's also direct access to a separate outdoor decking area, where the adults can unwind in the relaxing sunken hot tub as they raise a glass of Prosecco.

The dining room has space for your entire group, a delightful opportunity for everyone to sit around and enjoy a takeaway on the large dining table, a room ideal for laughs, chatter and memories.

No need to worry about the early morning shower queue, as nearly every bedroom in this dwelling benefits from an en-suite shower, with one lucky room containing a bath.

Choose between five luxurious super-king-size bedrooms which can be made into twin if needed, and a homely king-size room.

The guests on the ground-floor room will have free rein of the downstairs stylish shower room, decorated with stunning pink-tile walling.

Outside is a utility room, fitted with a washing machine, tumble dryer and freezer.

Here you can store any bikes or extra belongings.

Braunton village centre is just around the corner, comprised of a selection of shops, restaurants, pubs, and two museums, as well as heaps of takeaways for a Friday night treat.

Braunton Burrows is close to the property, the largest area of sand dunes in Europe at around 1000 hectares, an amazing opportunity for dog walkers, hikers and nature enthusiasts.

The North Devon AONB is home to medieval Braunton Great Fields, and a surfer’s paradise at Saunton Sands Beach, a sandy haven where you can take the whole family.

The South West Coast Path leads you over to gorgeous villages including Croyde, Woolacombe, and Mortehoe, all boasting tall cliffs, sand dunes, and breath-taking views for walkers and cyclists alike.

If you're looking for a day of shopping, the bustling town of Barnstaple is but a short drive away, filled with markets, shops, museums, and a recreation centre, as well as hosting the Tarka Trail, which offers 180 miles of walking and cycling trails, passing by Bideford and Clovelly.

The Old Coach House is a fabulous cottage for a large group who want to enjoy a deluxe stay within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

About the location


Croyde 5 miles; Barnstaple 6 miles; Woolacombe 9.5 miles.

Braunton is a village in North Devon, situated right at the centre of the North Devon Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and incorporating Braunton Burrows, the largest area of sand dunes in Europe, a designated Site of Special Scientific Interest. A couple of miles from the village is Saunton Sands beach, a three-mile stretch of beautiful west-facing sandy beach, backed by the sand dunes. Stroll along the beach, enjoy the surfing, or have a leisurely picnic. Just five minutes around the headland is Croyde Bay an excellent surfing beach, and round the next headland is Woolacombe Bay, another 3 mile stretch of beautiful sandy beach. There are some fabulous golf courses in the area including Saunton, Portmore or Royal North Devon golf courses. The South West Coast Path from Braunton to Instow follows part of the Tarka Trail along the estuary of the River Taw. This is part of North Devon’s Biosphere Reserve and much of the route follows old railway trackbeds, which now serve as an easy level route for walkers as well as cyclists. An understated part of Devon, with plenty to do for coast and country lovers alike.
