Located close to the villages of Lynton and Lynmouth, with their unique water-powered cliff railway, in an area famed for its beaches and the beauty of Exmoor, this fun, modern, reverse level house offers a setting away from the crowds. A perfect holiday abode for families, friends, and couples as well as the family pooch. Bracken Lea has been beautifully presented throughout, the house floods with light whilst giving you the feeling of being in a treehouse you can hear the river Lyn babbling below. From the minute you arrive you will switch into holiday mode!

As you step over the threshold from the driveway you will discover all four of the bedrooms along with the family bathroom on this level. All four light and spacious bedrooms have been thoughtfully decorated creating a dreamy haven that you can retreat to at the end of the day. Three of the four bedrooms offer the versatility of 'zip and link' beds so you can choose from a king-size or twin beds - either way, you're sure to have a restful night's sleep wrapped up in crisp fresh linens accompanied by the gentle sound of the river. The remaining bedroom enjoys a grand vaulted ceiling and a swish en suite shower-room complete with twin sinks and a waterfall shower.

Head downstairs to discover yet more space. The open plan sitting-room has a dining-area which offers the perfect spot for all the family to come together at the end of the day; after a family meal sink back into one of the three sofas, switch the Smart TV on and enjoy a family movie night.

The spacious and sociable kitchen/diner yet again floods with light offering the perfect spot to cook up a family brunch that can then be enjoyed around the breakfast table or open up the patio doors, let the outside in and take a pew for that perfect morning brew whilst listening to the birdsong.

The terrace is the main outside space at Bracken Lea and wraps around the back of the house which is accessible via both reception rooms. The perfect exit plan for a fun game of hide and seek for the younger members of the family who will also while away the hours under the stairs in a magical cubby area that the owner has created!

The glorious outside continues the treehouse feel with the terrace perfectly set up for long lazy mornings or fun family barbecues at the end of a day once the sandy toes have been washed! If you need a moment of peace, then follow the garden path down to the river where you will discover a garden bench offering a spot to switch off and simply take the moment in. Being so close to the river children need to be supervised at all times but most importantly relax and melt into your natural surroundings. There is even a lovely circular walk nearby, known as the Watersmeet Valley Loop, which takes you right down to the water's edge in Lynmouth, the perfect excuse for fish and chips - well you are on holiday after all! You can also walk to Watersmeet (National Trust) where you can enjoy light lunches or an afternoon tea in the tea garden by the river (seasonal).

Once discovered, Bracken Lea will become a holiday favourite and you will want to return year after year to add to the holiday memory bank!
