Combe View, an immaculate ground floor apartment – one of a very small group – is in a setting that is tucked away at the top end of Combe Martin's high street. This coastal village enjoys a sheltered sandy bay and wonderful clifftop walks. This is a lovely base for couples who want to take on the challenge of the South West Coast Path and families who are seeking a cheerful seaside holiday.
Combe View is beautifully presented, with a spacious open plan living-area that opens onto a fully enclosed sun-trap of a garden. There are two light and airy bedrooms – one with a king-size bed and the other with twin beds – and a lovely modern bathroom with a bath and fitted shower too.
The contemporary style of the apartment makes for easy living during your stay. The stylish well-equipped kitchen is cleverly designed to fit along one side of the living-area and there is plenty of room for the dining-table, comfortable seating for all and an outlook over the garden and down the valley that leads to the sea.
Combe Martin has a mile-long high street with a traditional cluster of cafes, ice cream shops and gift shops around the harbour, and so it may suit you to drop the family off at the beach and then pop the car back to the private car park.
Younger children will love making sandcastles and exploring the rock pools at low tide, teenagers will love the surfing culture of nearby Woolacombe and Croyde – two of north Devon's many wide sandy beaches – and the more energetic holidaymakers will enjoy tackling the exhilarating coastal paths and the spectacular views.
