Waterhayes is a superb brand new contemporary property, set over three floors and with wonderful estuary views from Appledore across to Instow and the north Devon countryside beyond from the balcony. Just two miles away is the amazing Blue Flag beach at Westward Ho! for surfing and kite surfing. This stunning detached holiday house is ideal for family and friends with lovely coastal walks - especially if you bring your dog - thriving cafes and pubs and an amazing endless sandy beach at Instow which you can get to on a seasonal passenger ferry or of course by car across the river bridge. The Quay at Appledore is the focal point for the village where you can watch the fishing boats and yachts as they head out to sea. Children will love crabbing at the water's edge as the tide ebbs, and the beautiful beach at Instow, dog-friendly all year round, is one of north Devon's best.
Waterhayes has been designed so that the open plan first floor offers the best of sociable holiday living and of course the best of the views. The fabulous balcony looks out to the front of the house high up above the village and this floor also leads directly to a large decking area and lawned garden at the back. Two of the four bedrooms are on the ground floor with their own shower-room and the other two bedrooms, on the second floor, are both en suite. This flexible accommodation is perfect for a carefree holiday that will suit you all. Appledore and Instow are often thought of as 'twins across the water' but each has its own distinctive character. Appledore has an intriguing network of little pedestrian pathways and cobbled courtyards amongst what used to be the little fishermen's cottages. Many of the pubs have live music events and there is a renowned annual literary festival in September. Whilst Appledore is of course on the coast, with the dramatic wild north Devon coast of the Hartland peninsula and the best of the surfing beaches at Saunton Sands, Croyde and Woolacombe a short drive away, this is also a great base for setting off to explore Exmoor National Park inland from Barnstaple. Whatever the time of year, staying at Waterhayes offers it all.
