Bliss is a generously sized, elegant apartment which is situated within the grounds of the historic Pickwell Manor. Pickwell Manor can be dated beyond the 10th Century and is mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086. Rich in history and nature, the shared grounds of the Manor are ideal for exploring, and include a forest trail, tennis court, campfire, BBQ area and exquisite gardens for the whole family to enjoy. The main property at Pickwell Manor has been tastefully and thoughtfully divided into ten apartments, each of which retain the building’s original features whilst also offering unique and splendid holiday accommodation.

Located just 1 mile away from the grounds is the quaint village of Georgeham, a historic parish in close proximity to some of the most dramatic beaches of the North Devon Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, flanked by the rocky, picturesque headlands of Baggy Point and Saunton Down. The parish includes a Victorian village school, a medieval church and two 17th Century public houses.

Situated within just 2 miles of some of the finest beaches in the South West, the property is ideal for access to the picturesque beachfronts of Croyde, Putsborough and Woolacombe. These beaches are amongst the most popular surf and swim spots in North Devon, and are perfect for families, sunbathers and water sports enthusiasts alike. There are numerous beauty spots in which to settle down with a picnic, or for more active pursuits, there are many activities to choose from.

Bliss is a beautifully spacious first floor apartment accessed from the entrance hall to main wing of Pickwell Manor. Up the grand staircase on entry to the Main Hall, Bliss is located directly to the right-hand side on the first floor. The apartment has been exquisitely designed with fresh and modern furnishings creating a comfortable and sociable environment. The open plan lounge and dining area is beautifully set out with ample space for dining or socialising, and stunning views over the grounds and hills beyond from the south-facing mullion windows.  The chess table in the lounge and feature fireplaces throughout the property add an authentic ambience to the apartment.

Four stylish and unique bedrooms complete the accommodation. Bedroom 1 features a freestanding, luxury bath within the room for a sensation of true opulence, along with an en suite shower room. Bedroom 2 has beds which can be configured to either a King and a Single, or 3 singles on request, and an en suite shower room. Bedroom 3 features a King sized bed, and Bedroom 4 has a Super King and a Single, and awe-inspiring views out to the South. Bedrooms 3 and 4 are served by a WC and a separate shower room, both with washbasins. Each room has a unique style, and an abundance of space.

Within the grounds there is a woodland trail, complete with forest basketball, treasure hunt and camp-building kits.  Also, within the grounds are shared facilities of a games room, wendy house, tennis court, basketball hoop, giant chess set, croquet. Private parking, two electric car charging points.  Putsborough beach car parking pass available for each apartment, £20 refundable deposit will be required p.o.a
