Holiday house for group of friends and family on Exmoor near the north Devon coast

Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends.
Swallows Rest, Countisbury, Lynton, Devon, sleeps 24 in 10 bedrooms.

Swallows Rest is arranged on 3 floors with the main entrance on the middle floor. This floor provides the main living area with a sitting room with French doors onto the terrace, plenty of comfy sofas and chairs, wood burner, Freeview Sky TV, Hi-Fi and Wi-Fi. The dining area, with seating for 18, is open plan with the fully fitted kitchen, with a further table and chairs for 6.

Cooking is on the oil fired Rayburn or the electric cooker. There is a fridge freezer (plus a larder fridge in the entrance lobby), washing machine and dishwasher, as well as mixers, plenty of large pans for cooking and a set of Denby pottery.

Also on this floor is a king size double room with en suite shower, and a separate shower room. This is perfect for those with minor disabilities as, apart from the initial entrance step from the lobby onto the landing, everything is on one level. Please speak to us if you need more information on facilities for a disabled visitor.

On the lower floor are two further bedrooms, one king size 4 poster bed with en suite shower, and the other a king size divan bed and en suite shower. An entrance on this floor takes you to the courtyard and across to the swimming pool.

On the top floor is a large king size room with a picture window giving views across the field, and another bedroom under the eves but still with king size bed. The studio area partitioned by the beams has 6 single beds and there is a family bathroom on this level.

In the nearby farmhouse are 4 further double en suite rooms which can accommodate additional guests.

The pool is 40 ft long and 8 ft in the deep end. It is enclosed under glass and heated by the biomass boiler so beautifully warm. If very young children would like to use the pool please let us know in advance to ensure that we have the pool extra warm.

There are 80 acres of farmland to explore with horses, sometimes pigs and chickens. The pond on the farm (well away from the property and fenced) has a huge number of fish.
