The property

Set in an elevated position, a stone's throw away from the quaint town of Lynton, rests this contemporary holiday home, Ferndale.

Overlooking the treetops of the neighbouring valley towards the River Lyn, Ferndale offers an idyllic base for an escape to the coast.

A sought-after off-road parking space greets you upon arrival to this charming dwelling, leading you along a short path to a lovely seating area, perfectly positioned at the front of the stone-built cottage, inviting you to take a seat with your loved one to soak in the breath-taking views across the picturesque countryside.

Kick off your walking boots as you step over the threshold, where you'll be charmed by the remarkable open-plan living space, beautifully-appointed with high ceilings and slate flooring, featuring a contemporary décor complimented by eye-catching splashes of colour.

The rustic wooden kitchen was intricately handmade for the purpose of the cottage and is fully-equipped with all of the necessary amenities required to rustle up a meal for two, inviting you to serve at the dining table to indulge in your culinary delights as you plan your next adventure.

When sleep calls, head through to the adjoining bedroom to rest your head, thoughtfully laid out with a nautical blue colour scheme and boasting a sumptuous super-king-size bed, offering a handy zip/link feature for flexible sleeping arrangements.

In the morning, prepare for a new day with an invigorating rinse in the stylish family bathroom, before heading out to explore your surroundings.

Take the short stroll into the heart of Lynton where you can spend your time browsing the fabulous exhibitions of artwork on display at one of the many galleries, or discover the towns exciting maritime heritage at Lyn and Exmoor Museum.

Avid walkers can join the South West Coast Path atop the dramatic cliffs towards the Valley of Rocks, a craggy dry valley formed overtime by coastal erosion, boasting panoramic views across the marvellous sea and homing quirky mountain goats that wander the rock faces.

Board the highest and steepest water-powered funicular railway and visit the twin village of Lynmouth, where you can enjoy a leisurely stroll around the scenic harbour, or along the shingle seafront at Blacklands Beach, stopping at The Ancient Mariner for a delicious home-cooked meal on your return.

Lace up your walking boots and explore the delights of Exmoor National Park, a charming landscape of moorland, woodland, hills and tumbling rivers, hosting a plethora of scenic routes to discover, suitable for a range of abilities.

The charming village of Combe Martin is within easy reach, home to over 28 acres of spectacular gardens at the family-run Wildlife & Dinosaur Park, where you can meet the friendly sea lions, or thrill seekers can partake in a lion feeding experience, and after working up an appetite of your own, treat yourself to a spot of traditional Devonshire afternoon tea at Combe Martin Bakery and Tearoom.

Further afield is the picturesque seaside resort of Ilfracombe, where the coastline is beautifully decorated with golden sand, including the private and secluded waters of the world-renowned Tunnel Beaches, aptly named after the tunnels that were hand carved in the 19th century to gain access to the unique tidal pools.

If you'd prefer to stay on land, test your swing at Ilfracombe golf club, perfectly positioned on top of the rugged cliffs, offering panoramic views of the dramatic coastline, or tour the 11th century Chambercombe Manor, thought to be haunted by the ghost of a ship wreck victim.

Make memories that will last a lifetime with a stay at Ferndale.
