The Roundhouse at Combrew Farm stands in a rural location on the River Taw Estuary between Barnstaple and Bideford in North Devon, within easy reach of the area’s magnificent award-winning beaches such as Woolacombe, Saunton Sands and Croyde.
This large cottage has plenty of space accommodate up to 9 guests without a sense of overcrowding. The oak dining room table can seat up to 14-guests, which if the property is rented in conjunction with the adjoining 2-bedroom Tucker’s Retreat, means there is space for everyone to dine together.
The spacious curved-wall lounge has very recently been re-furnished with a luxury sofa suite and a new 50-inch LED TV with surround sound and DVD player. A more traditional touch exists in the form of an inglenook containing a large wood burner, guaranteeing that this large room is warm and cosy all year round.
Adjoining the lounge is an open plan kitchen-dining room. Fitted with contemporary oak units, the kitchen has been thoughtfully equipped with all the necessary appliances required to make it easy to cater for up to 14 guests. The dining area has French Windows to the patio giving lovely views of the garden with its raised pond and the soothing sound of a little waterfall.
Two of the five bedrooms in The Roundhouse, together with a fully fitted bathroom with power shower, are located on the ground floor, making the cottage appeal to those who would prefer to avoid using the stairs. The other three bedrooms comprising two super king-size doubles (including a four poster) and a twin with full-size single beds are upstairs together with another an ensuite to the master bedroom and a fully equipped family bathroom with a walk-in power shower.
Outside, the private patio garden has a little gated bridge which leads to the fields and the children's play area.
Combrew Farm’s leisure facilities ensure there is little reason for guests to remain inactive unless out of choice. The grounds in which guests are free to explore include an indoor heated swimming pool with sauna and spa, an indoor badminton court, a gym, tennis court, games room, children’s play area with trampolines and a secure petting field where guests can make friends with some of our animals.
Combrew Farm lies in a rural location just a few minutes walk (or ride) to the Tarka Trail, a coastal and riverside foot and cycle-path that extends through beautiful countryside from Ilfracombe through Barnstaple and Bideford inland to Meeth. Bring your own bikes on which to explore this 40-mile level trail (it’s built on an old railway line) or hire them from us.
The Roundhouse is nicely located for discovering North Devon, from Clovelly in the west through to Ilfracombe, Lynmouth and Exmoor to the east. There are many family attractions to enjoy as well as enough beaches to fill a fortnight. Your nearest beach at Instow is only a few minutes drive – or 15-minute cycle ride away.
