A few steps away lies a chic navy kitchen featuring a striking Belfast sink and sleek appliances such as a double electric oven with gas hob, a spacious fridge/freezer and a dishwasher, which, along with the stylish dining area providing the ultimate space to cook and enjoy delicious meals throughout your stay.

The back door can be found leading out into a gorgeous courtyard with a pretty bistro table and chairs and steps up to an additional seating area, where you can bask in the sunshine on a warm summer's day and indulge in a lovingly prepared lunch alfresco.

Back inside, a well-designed cloakroom completes the ground floor, whilst up on the first floor, a contemporary tiled bathroom with muted grey hues provides ample opportunity to relax and unwind with a soak in the large tub or take your time to get ready for the day with a refreshing rinse with the overhead shower.

The first floor also boasts three restful bedrooms made up of a king sized double bed, a twin and a single, each complete with plenty of storage space and an inviting armchair, where you can escape the excitement for an hour or two as you delight in your favourite book.

The twin bedroom also benefits from zip/link, giving the option of a superking-size instead!

See the very best that the area has to offer with tours of the local museum of Coldharbour Mill, or an afternoon spent exploring the Gothic Victorian dwelling of Knightshayes Court, now owned by the National Trust.

Set about on a scenic journey through the countryside on the traditional steam trains of the Devon Railway Centre, or see the sights by foot with an exhilarating hike through Buzzard's Woodlands.
