There’s a special quality to the light here and soul-soothing views to the sea framed by Jacobean-style windows and from the south-facing garden below these smart apartments. Take all three for a grand group gathering – don’t fight over Bliss with its free-standing bath on a heated plinth – catering, music etc can be arranged in the big ballroom, no problem.
Take a stroll in the grounds and smell the roses, snooze in the swinging seat; plan a barbecue or an evening by the fire pit. Children run free, feed the animals, craft driftwood.
A lovely cross-country walk brings you to golden Putsborough Sands – it’s fine to borrow a board or a wetsuit. Stride out on the SW Coast Path or pootle to one of the foodie village pubs. There’s good food too in Braunton, Ilfracombe and Woolacombe. Each apartment has a tablet with the latest info.
