Horizon - North Devon

Sea side holiday cottage


                       View from the front of the property                                                               Horizon                                           


Horizon, our fabulous three-storey Victorian seafront home is conveniently located on the South West Coastal Path, with Newberry Beach just a few steps from the front door.  From the house you can enjoy uninterrupted, spectacular views across the cove and sea, or lie in bed listening to the waves roll in as you drift off to sleep.  Situated on a peaceful, no through, beachfront road, the holiday cottage is also only a few hundred yards from the main village beach, pubs and shops of Combe Martin.  It offers 'a little bit of heaven by the sea' in which to relax or explore all that the area has to offer.


Horizon is an exceptional property, furnished with your comfort in mind and retaining many wonderful Victorian features. Tastefully decorated, with original artwork on the walls, it is a stylish holiday home with a relaxed feel. Particular attention has been paid to provide those extra touches that allow guests to settle in quickly, such as an extremely well equipped kitchen, quality bed linen, and buckets, nets, DVDs, books, games etc. to keep the children amused.


Recently, Horizon has been sympathetically extended to the rear of the property to include two new stylish shower rooms, one of which is ensuite to the second floor double bedroom.  The accommodation comprises of an entrance hall, sitting room, separate dining room, downstairs cloakroom, fully fitted kitchen, bathroom with separate bath and shower, two new shower rooms and four bedrooms (sleeping 8 people plus a baby in a travel cot). Ideal for two families to share as there are two bedrooms on the first floor plus the family bathroom, and two bedrooms on the second floor plus the two new shower rooms, providing lots of space. The house is fully central heated with constant hot water and a cosy open log fire in the sitting room. There is free wifi available via a broadband connection (15mbps, unlimited downloads), as well as freeview and freesat TV in the sitting room and also in the master bedroom (several movie channels) and a TV in the dining room.

An elevated patio at the front of the property overlooks the sea and Newberry Beach, gets the afternoon sun, has patio furniture and is ideal for that relaxing 'sundowner' at the end of a fun packed day.  To the rear of the house, another patio enjoys the sun most of the day.  There is off street parking for two cars in tandem at the rear of the property, which is a rare find among beachfront houses and a major bonus during the school holidays. There is also unrestricted on street parking on the lane to the front of the house.


The traditional seaside village of Combe Martin nestles on the edge of Exmoor National Park where the rolling countryside meets the dramatic Bristol Channel. It is an ideal holiday location for families and adults alike, with a wealth of attractions and spectacular beaches within easy reach. As well as lots of outdoor activities, there are a good selection of village shops, cafes, a deli and pubs within easy walking distance of the house. All this within three hours drive of London to the east, or Birmingham and the Midlands to the north.



Horizon is both relaxing and re-energising we hope you love it as much as we do!
