Nestling between Berrynarbor and Ilfracombe in one of the most beautiful coastal areas of North Devon, a new look Whimbrels awaits guests with the holiday home having undergone a major transformation. The architect has created fabulous new accommodation including an additional floor allowing the imaginative design to maximize the enviable location which includes breathtaking panoramic sea views as well as overlooking Watermouth Castle.
The house has been extended at one end to provide new living space including a viewing room and garden suite room, whilst the additional floor accommodates two new bedrooms with ensuite facilities. A new safari lodge style balcony wraps itself around Whimbrels with a feature octagon promontory.
Surrounded by gardens, Whimbrels has its own heated outdoor swimming pool in a secluded, enclosed setting enjoying splendid views over the coastline, perfect for a splash in the summer sunshine. The garden benefits from an extensive paved patio complete with Breeze House, another way to enjoy outdoor living.
The hallway on the ground floor leads into the large L-shaped kitchen/living/dining room with an expanse of picture windows taking full advantage of the stunning sea views. Outside is a wrap around balcony terrace. On this level is the new viewing gallery a perfect place to admire the view, year round. In addition there are two bedrooms, a twin and a king bedroom (with TV built into the bed), both with en-suite and also a boot room at the back of the kitchen.
On the lower ground floor is a good size games room complete with pool table and table football plus a separate sitting room. The garden room with comfy sofa seating can be accessed from these two rooms. On this level you will also find two further bedrooms (both with ensuite facilities). The Superking bedroom with French doors opens out on to the terrace. The other bedroom is a Superking (zip ‘n’ link option to twin). The family bathroom is a real indulgence incorporating a deluxe Jacuzzi spa bath with WiFi and mood lighting.
On the first floor you will find the master bedroom with Superking and magnificent sea views. A second bedroom is Twin (with zip ‘n’ link option to Superking). Both bedrooms are ensuite.
If you can tear yourself away from this incredibly, luxurious house there is so much to explore nearby. Enchanting Watermouth Cove is within a short stroll, with its gently sloping shoreline and abundance of rock pools, this naturally sheltered harbour is a popular mooring for colourful boats of all shapes and sizes. Watermouth Castle is one of North Devon's premier attractions and offers something for all the family, while the nearby Dinosaur and Wildlife Park is a favourite with children. The Old Sawmills Inn, a character pub and restaurant was refurbished in 2016 and is nearby and there is a choice of pubs, restaurants and shops in Ilfracombe and Combe Martin just a few minutes drive away. With Exmoor National Park to the east, a choice of golden sandy beaches to the west and with miles of stunning coastal and countryside scenery to enjoy all around, Whimbrels is ideal for extended families or two families holidaying together and will help create wonderful holiday memories for years to come.

Fabulous property. Design is exceptionally well thought out to make the most of the views and sunshine. Fantastic time had by all. Will definitely return and recommend.
This is an expensive property but has everything you could ask for. We love the elevated position and views, being properly detached,peace and quiet,spacious accommodation and facilities that this property has. I don't think anyone could find fault. You get what you pay for.
Holiday property is amazing, true to it's pictures on website, had everything you needed there many thanks to the owner. I would like to say it's a fantastic place and everything you need, my family enjoyed every moment there many thanks.
Whimbrels proved to be the perfect holiday property, an impressive building from the outside and even more gorgeous inside. Our party of six adults had a wonderful weekend, so good in fact we didn't leave the property! The open plan living/dining/kitchen area makes this a very easy house for large groups to socialise. The games room provided enough fun to keep us entertained and having ordered a large delivery of food and drink, the kitchen proved to be ideal for our catering needs. The bedrooms are beautifully designed and beds incredibly comfortable. Very impressed with Marsdens, this is the first time we have booked a property through them and having stayed at various properties over the years for our annual get together we are all keen to return to Whimbrels again next year.
If there was an option above Excellent, this property would get it.... Everything was perfect for our weekend to celebrate my wife and I's 30th Birthdays with our close friends. The views were spectacular, the rooms beautiful, the games room and pool great fun!! We will certainly be rebooking at some point in the future.
An amazing house with the added addition of a well kept pool and stunning gardens. The best company in the South West for ANY holiday accomadation, booked for 2019 as we left. OUTSTANDING in all aspects, ideal for a family or celebration
Truly a holiday to remember - something for everyone. Our party ranged from 5 years to 92 years - brilliant holiday - thank you
From the moment we arrived and unlocked the door we were thrilled with this property. The whole family thoroughly enjoyed the whole holiday.
We had an amazing time, we were a group of 5 couples and there was plenty of space for all of us. The property was spotless and they provided everything you would need, from lovely towels to the most equipped kitchen I have ever seen. We would all definitely recommend this property to stay in and especially in the summer with the pool and bbq area, plus the views were lovely too! Fantastic all round stay!
