The perfect hideaway for two, this romantic former art studio boasts bright and light accommodation in an enclosed plot in the owner’s garden.
This pretty property, just a mile’s downhill walk from the long sandy beach at Westward Ho!, is ideal for a tranquil retreat for you and your beau – not forgetting up to two furry friends, of course! Beautifully converted with a fresh and bright double bedroom, you’ll be able to get a peaceful night’s sleep that will prepare you for the excitement of the day ahead. Pop out along the South West Coast Path with the hounds to Northam Burrows Country Park, just behind the beach, and take in those beautiful views along the 2-mile stretch of sand.
The pretty former studio, built in a natural stone with red and orange tones, harnesses natural light from its south-facing position and has an airy feel. The high ceilings and windows open out the space, making the lounge/kitchen area a relaxing place to chill out after a long day, your canines snoozing away by your feet. You’ll find everything you need to cook a romantic breakfast in the contemporary kitchen but watch out for cheeky canines hunting for crumbs! Outside, the enclosed cobbled patio is a wonderful spot for enjoying an al fresco evening drink while the pups stretch their legs.
Westward Ho! is a bustling traditional seaside town, so you’ll find plenty to do there, including amusement arcades, surfing and go-karting. Plus, dogs are welcome on parts of the beach all year. Fishing village Appledore is only 3 miles away and has plenty of shops and cafes, and you can take the ferry across to Instow for a dog-friendly pub lunch while looking out across the water. Take a stroll around the gardens at Tapeley Park (4 miles), which has one of the oldest permaculture gardens in the UK, or visit the pretty Docton Mill (16 miles) that boasts an award-winning tea room.
