In an Exmoor valley two miles from Parracombe is this 18th century farmhouse in ten acres of grounds.
Complete with seasonal indoor pool and self-contained annexe, it is a grand place for families and walking groups to enjoy country living.
The hall leads to the sitting room where you can snuggle down beside the wood burning stove in the inglenook and watch TV.
There is the luxury of a second sitting room with an open fire and a piano for anyone who is feeling musical, as well as French windows to throw open to a sunny terrace with lovely views.
The farmhouse style kitchen is pretty and welcoming, with small table and chairs, or you can eat all together in the dining room with its vast oak table.
Head through a door into the swimming pool which is your private space for splashing and lengths from Easter to the end of October.
For peaceful nights, you have a little downstairs single or take the two steep flights of stairs up to a choice of six more bedrooms, all with rural views.
A downstairs boot room leads through to Trout Cottage, the annexe, which also has a handy door from the outside.
Trout Cottage is a useful self-contained part of the house for anyone who likes privacy or peace, equipped for two people with an open plan living space and steps down to a double en suite bedroom.
The ten acres of natural grounds are lovely to roam, with garden for barbecues, woods, orchard, unfenced lakes, meadows and rambling paths.
Why not organise a table tennis tournament in the open-fronted barn?
Beyond the grounds, footpaths lead to cliff top walks and the sea at Heddon's’ Mouth.
As well as the amazing coast and countryside to enjoy, you will find places of interest at Parracombe, with its excellent pub and ancient church, a funicular railway at Lynmouth, a great beach at Combe Martin and huge surf beaches at Croyde and Woolacombe.
Lower Cowley Farmhouse is a very special place for socialising, relaxing and enjoying the area.
