Mariners House

Mariners House is a lovely luxury villa-style property, resting on the edge of the Torridge Estuary in the thriving town of Bideford. This beautiful Victorian property is ideal for a large gathering of friends and family for those looking for a retreat to this seaside corner of Devon. Upon entering the property, you will be greeted into an elegantly presented home with a wonderful blend of period features. Curl up during a chilly winter’s evening in front of the warming open fire within the sitting room, where the entire group can gather for some light evening entertainment or to simply unwind in front of the TV. Beyond here is the well-appointed kitchen, featuring all the necessities you will require to rustle up an evening meal before catching up with group within the formal dining room. Follow the staircase up to the first and second floors to discover five wonderfully presented bedrooms, ensuring a flexible sleeping arrangement. From the dining room, throw open the patio doors to enjoy an evening glass of fizz within the enclosed rear garden before dipping into a bubbling hot tub with your loved ones during a summer’s evening. If you can tear yourself away from this impressive property, explore the idyllic town of Bideford, where you will find a local shop and pub within a mere 10-minute walk, perfect for picking up those holiday essentials. For days out, venture out to the Northam Burrows Country Park where you can enjoy a leisurely stroll with your dogs before heading down to the beach to soak up the sun. If you are feeling adventurous the nearby area plays host to a golf course, a number of amusement parks and a Go Karting centre. Alternatively, visit the larger town of Barnstable, where you will discover an ancient town with a prosperous centre. From here, you can explore the Tarka Country and cycle along the 180-mile-long Tarka Trail. Make Mariners House your family gathering to this wonderful part of Devon.
