Heather Lea is a beautifully presented 5 bedroomed, detached property just a few minutes’ walk from the award winning, surfing beach of Woolacombe. Set back from the road and nestling within its own grounds this lovely property has plenty of outdoor space and is surrounded by mature gardens. Views of the sea, surrounding countryside and the National Trust headland of Baggy Point can be seen from most rooms as well as the front patio. This spacious home has been completely renovated and refurbished for the 2019 season and offers flexible accommodation for larger groups. All the individually co-ordinated rooms have good quality furnishings and are light and airy.

On entering the property, you immediately appreciate the clean, crisp quality of the workmanship and clever design, whilst oozing style and comfort. Off the hallway is the main, spacious living room with comfy sofas and seating for 10, a flame effect electric fire and 43” smart TV/DVD player. There is also a HDMI cable for use with a games console, along with a selection of books and board games. The carefully co-ordinated furnishings blend well with unusual light fittings and local prints. Views extend out to the sea, Baggy Point and over glorious countryside. A further room adjacent brings you into a smaller snug area with seating for 5, simply for “chilling”, relaxing with a good book or listening to your favourite music through the Bluetooth speaker. Doors lead out to the south facing front patio, whilst the snug continues through to the dining area which is at the heart of this open plan L shaped room, with its large, solid oak table easily allowing everyone to eat together. Thoughtful design means that even those busy in the kitchen can still be included in conversations with friends or family seated at the table, making it a great sociable environment. To complete this light and spacious setting, a brand-new kitchen provides plenty of working space and all the equipment required to prepare delicious meals, whilst the electric range cooker with 7ring gas hob not only looks good, but easily accommodates the catering needs of larger groups.
