  • "Absolutely fabulous!"

    ! ⭐️ What a place to stay, off the beaten track and surrounded by woodland. The perfect spot to unwind and relax but so close to all the beaches and attractions of North Devon. We had the most amazing week, relaxing and exploring Devon and the house was just the perfect place to base ourselves, a gorgeous Edwardian house with huge rooms and everything you could wish for was provided. Plus a fabulous bathroom and bath big enough to lie fully down in. I wish we could have stayed for longer. Saffron and Shelby (the owners) are great and do anything to make your stay more enjoyable. Our fur baby was greeted with treats and toys and they even provide a dog bed to make her stay as comfortable as ours. Lots of places nearby to eat, the Sawmils at the top of the road did great pub grub and the Dolphin in Combe Martin had a fabulous Sunday carvery, if you can, try the Blue Groove in Croyde their mussels are divine, so many other great cafes and eateries to choose from. Then pick up a couple of cheeky bottles of Devon cider to take back to the Woodlands and enjoy them sitting on the veranda with perfect views. Thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and it is definitely a place we would return too. Thank you The Woodlands/Saffron/Shelby you are super stars.⭐️

  • "Our family of two adults and three teens had a wonderful stay at Woodlands House."

    It's a gorgeous house, very full of character, spacious, really clean and well equipped. Our three dogs were made to feel very welcome with treats and toys and the owners were extremely helpful and good at communicating. There is lots to do in the area - surfing at Woolacombe was great, as was quad biking at Key Pitts and so many great restaurants - the Beach House in Woolacombe for fish and the Terrace Tapas Bar in Ilfracombe were two of our favourites.

    Thank you for your review . We absolutely loved having you all. So glad the fur babies and everyone had a lovely time . We are improving and adding more all the time to the property as we chatted about. We look forward to seeing you all again and thank you for been such lovely guests . Property Owner

The property

Settled amongst the secluded gardens of The Woodlands House Estate, on the outskirts of Berrynarbor, rests this remarkable four bedroom, double-fronted 1910 holiday home, The Woodlands.

This pet-friendly dwelling is idyllically positioned, set over an acre of land for private use, accommodating a group of seven looking to explore the delights of the North Devon coastline.

Follow the track road through the rural greenery that surrounds this magnificent abode before parking up in one of the off-road spaces and stepping inside to begin your staycation.

A lengthy journey calls for rest, so remove your shoes and any outerwear as you enter into the hallway of your new home-from-home and settle down with a steaming cup of coffee in front of the television in the open-plan living/dining room, where you can keep little ones entertained with their favourite Disney film.

Moving through the property, discover the spacious kitchen/diner, beautifully-appointed with an elegant kitchen island, a dining area with seating for all guests and equipped with all of the essential amenities to ensure an enjoyable self-catered stay!

In the warmer months, make mealtimes an alfresco affair with a sociable seat amongst the extensive greenery of the garden, and enjoy a drink into the late evening as the little ones keep them-selves entertained in the games room.

When sleep calls, you'll find four well-presented bedrooms settled on the first floor, with a super-king-size offering a zip/link feature, ideal for couples, friends and family sharing, along with a king-size, a double and a single.

In the morning, you can kick-start your day with a refreshing rinse under the shower head or enjoy a blissful soak amongst the bubbles of the luxurious roll-top bath before heading off on an adventure.

The centre of the picture-perfect village of Berrynarbor rests a short distance from your holiday home, offering a local pub, Ye Olde Globe Inn, and a handy shop situated within a post office, meaning you need not look further than your doorstep for all of your local amenities!

If you can tear yourself away from the de-lights of this charming town, you'll find miles of glorious golden sand decorating the nearby coast-line, ideal for spending peaceful afternoons lounging on the sand, building sandcastles or paddling the shores; thrill-seekers can even tackle the waves with a variety of watersports opportunities available at Combe Martin Beach.

Be sure to spend the day visiting the seaside resort of Ilfracombe, where you can come face-to-face with fascinating marine wildlife at The Ilfracombe Aquarium, or simply watch the world go by with a seat alongside the harbour.

There's plenty to see and do further inland, such as the Combe Martin Wildlife & Dinosaur Park, home to a zoo, fossil museum and exhilarating train ride, along with the vast open moorland of Exmoor National Park, with miles of farmland, woodland and valleys waiting to be explored.

Explore the coast and country of Devon with a stay at The Woodlands.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £450.
