Description

Stepps Farm is in a delightful, rural location tucked away in a tiny picturesque hamlet ten minutes from the popular village of Braunton and just a little further from the fabulous beaches of Saunton, Croyde and Woolacombe. This very spacious, detached 18th century farmhouse and barn conversion has been lovingly renovated with many modern features added, yet the property retains its appealingly rustic character and charm with exposed beams and many original features. The expansive kitchen/breakfast room is located next to the fabulous dining room complete with attractive handcrafted large oak table and feature original bread oven. Whether it is coffee and croissants before a trip out onto Exmoor or preparing a small banquet for a special occasion, those wanting to indulge their culinary credentials will love the well-equipped and sociable kitchen.

**Free parking for one car provided in Croyde Down End Beach Car Park (up until end February 2018)**

The generous number of welcoming reception rooms are a real bonus. After returning from a fun filled day in the surf and sand you might choose to play pool in the games room, join your friends for a chat in front of the log burner in the living room or perhaps watch a movie in the sitting room. It's easy to find a quiet space before getting together again for a convivial meal, board game or adventure out.

Upstairs the bedrooms and bathrooms are all finished to a high standard with tasteful decor. The truly spacious master bedroom is a real gem (it is huge!) and has a Superking bed and its own en suite facilities with powerful shower. Guests also benefit from a King room with en suite facilities, bath and shower and there are also a Twin room and a King room (which can be made into Twin on request). The fifth bedroom is sure to become a firm favourite with the younger party members with its two sets of full size bunk beds catering for up to four. However, if just two children share the bedroom, imagine no fights over who gets the top bunk! The main bathroom is very generously apportioned with both a bath and separate corner powerful shower.

Outside there are plenty of places to relax in the sunshine with a cool drink on a summer's evening. From the kitchen door there is a patio area with seating and, on the other side of the house, steps lead up to a quiet lawned courtyard garden. For the more energetic, Stepps Farm has more to offer; up the lane there is a mown area of garden that can be used to play five-a-side football or other games and a wild meadow where, at the top, seats are provided for you to enjoy a sundowner, look down the wooded valley, admire the countryside and look out for the local wildlife.

In addition to Woolacombe Beach, the UK's best beach (named by travellers two years running in the TripAdvisor reviews 2016), as well as the lovely sandy surfing beaches of Saunton, Putsborough and Croyde there are numerous other attractions within driving distance from the house. Along the rugged north coast you will find exhilarating hikes on the South West Coast Path, days out on Exmoor, including Lynton and Lynmouth known as 'Little Switzerland.' Boat trips from Ilfracombe harbour to Lundy Island. Plus there are plenty of local attractions for the children including the Combe Martin Dinosaur Park, Watermouth Castle and Arlington Court.

Nearer to Stepps Farm are the beautiful Marwood Gardens and the Muddiford Inn is approx.  2 miles away. Braunton offers a great selection of individual shops, family-friendly cafes and restaurants. The village has easy access to the Tarka Trail cycle path and golfers are spoiled with a variety of courses to suit all standards in easy reach.

Stepps Farm is perfect for families, extended families or groups of friends, at any time of year, you will simply not want to leave this really special, spacious holiday home!

Reviews

This is a lovely place, peaceful, wonderful setting and so many kitchen gadgets that you normally just don't get, especially a decent coffee machine and sharp knives. All clean, tidy with some lovely touches such as wine, milk, tea, coffee, fresh bread and cakes.Peter, Warwickshire - 3rd June 2016
We enjoyed our stay. The house was very qwll equipped and spotless. Our dalmatian had a great time, the garden is enclosed and the use of the field was an added bonus. Would stay again and recommend to others.Pam, Kings Langley - 23rd January 2016
We had a wonderful week at Stepps Farm. Sucdh a comfortable and spacious home to come back to after busy days exploring North Devon. The house was so well equipped and the very generous welcome pack was a lovely touch. Thank you.Rhiannon, London - 19th January 2016
