Bucks Mills is one of the most beautiful villages in north Devon, a hidden gem, with pretty white washed cottages speckled along a wooded valley.
This lovely barn conversion within the owners’ grounds, is beautifully presented with a cosy wood burner, ideal to curl up in front of on a chilly evening, and the added luxury of underfloor heating throughout. The two bedrooms each have an en-suite and the spacious kitchen/dining area is the perfect place to enjoy a lazy breakfast whilst you plan your day.
There is something for everyone in this stunning location with birdwatching, fishing, horse riding, golf, surfing and sailing close by. The nearby coastal path leads you to the famous fishing village of Clovelly and the unspoilt beach at Peppercombe, or if you are feeling energetic you can walk all the way to Westward Ho!. A village store and post office is just ½ mile away for your daily essentials, and nearby Bideford has restaurants and town amenities along with boat trips to Lundy Island, or hire a bike and explore the Tarka Trail. RHS Rosemoor Gardens, Docton Mill and Hartland Quay are well worth a visit, along with many pretty fishing villages to explore, including nearby Instow and Appledore. For family fun the Big Sheep and Milky Way Adventure parks are a must. Beach 1½ miles. Shop ½ mile, pub 1½ miles, restaurant 2 miles.
