General Info

Resting among surrounding views of the North Devon countryside and the far-reaching Taw Estuary is Varley Lodge, a renovated eco-friendly barn conversion offering the perfect base for a group of six to explore Devon's coast and country. This detached property is tucked away in the tranquil village of Prixford, sitting on a working farm and utilising eco-friendly techniques such as the ground source heat recovery system for the underfloor heating and rainwater collection. Find the characterful interior to your delight, keeping to original features and decorated with contemporary fixtures. The stylish kitchen/diner is equipped with granite worktops, oak panelling, a range cooker, gas hob, dishwasher, coffee maker, and of course the essential amenities needed for self-catered cooking. The family dining table is perfect for sociable dinners over a bottle of wine, or a place to enjoy a fun-filled game night. Spend an evening in the welcoming sitting room, letting the wood-burning stove create a cosy atmosphere as you snuggle on the sofa and flick through the Smart TV. The ground floor also hosts a handy utility room with a washing machine and a neat cloakroom for your convenience. A summer afternoon can be spent in your own idyllic haven in the large enclosed rear garden, adjoining lush fields and accessed via the kitchen or sitting room patio doors. Choose to dine alfresco with food from the barbecue in this idyllic setting or take the opportunity to unwind or gaze at the stars whilst relaxing in the hot tub. Two staircases lead you up to separate corners of the first floor, head up one towards the beautiful mezzanine snug room, choosing to relax in a moment of peace with a cup of tea and a good book, or to catch up on your favourite TV show! Find the second staircase which takes you over to three stunning bedrooms offering pretty décor, ample storage and views to far-reaching landscapes. Bedrooms comprising a super-king-size which can be changed to a twin if needed, a master king-size with a luxury en-suite shower, and a twin room. Resting next to the bedrooms is a delightful family bathroom, fitted with chic features including a calming bath tub with its own handheld shower, as well as a lovely separate walk-in shower! Varley Lodge sits within a short drive of Devon's famous golden coast – the sandy beaches at Croyde, Woolacombe, Putsborough and Saunton Sands to name a few, with the Jurassic coastline in easy reach. These glorious beaches are a paradise for surfers of all ability levels, with boards, wetsuits and expert tuition available at most locations. Explore the peaceful surroundings and take a stroll among the encompassing verdant fields and farmland before heading over to Barnstaple town centre where you'll find an abundance of shopping facilities to stock up on goods, as well as local pubs and restaurants for when you fancy an evening out of the kitchen, or enjoy a romantic walk next to the River Taw. Nearer to home, the villages of Braunton, Muddiford, West Down have a variety of restaurants, pubs, cafes and shops, whilst the Marwood Gardens and Tea Rooms are less than 1 mile away. Choose a day of adventure along the exciting Tarka Trail, which runs through Braunton, reaching over 180 miles across North Devon and Exmoor; take your pick between foot or pedal, viewing unspoilt areas of Devonshire landscapes, quiet countryside, a striking coastline and rugged woodland. Find attractions all within easy reach of the property including Barnstaple's popular Pannier Market, meander around town to view various award-winning flower displays, or learn all about the town's history at the Museum of Barnstaple. More fun can be had at the amazing Exmoor National Park, visit wonderful wildlife such as ponies and deer, spend a lazy Sunday driving around rare beauty, or delighting a family-friendly day out at Exmoor Zoo!
