Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends.
Golden Lion House, Ashburton, Devon, sleeps 10-19 in 7 bedrooms.
Golden Lion House offers 7 large bedrooms (5 en suites) + 2 additional bathrooms, 3 reception rooms (one a games room), a relaxing rear garden, parking for 5 cars (and on street parking), and pleasant rural views. The house is centrally located between Exeter, Dartmoor, Plymouth and Torbay, and a 2 minute walk to the town centre.
Groups can enjoy a stroll across the Dartmoor National Park or simply wander into town and enjoy the delights of the various boutique and antique style shops and cosy restaurants and pubs. The beaches in Teignmouth and Shaldon are only 30 minutes drive away, and Torbay and Totnes are similar distances. If you like your shopping then Exeter Quay and Princesshay is the place to be. Holden Forest is only 20 minutes away for a great family day out. There is so much to do.
The large living room is ideal for family gatherings with a working open fireplace and direct access to the rear garden. Whilst some of your group enjoy the games room with free pool, darts and a master organ, others can relax in the reception room or large kitchen area.
Golden Lion House was built in 1768 for local surgeon Sir Nicholas Tripe. It was then turned into a coaching inn in late 1700's. Run as a hotel and pub until late 1990's, Golden Lion House is a well known Ashburton landmark and source of lots of stories in the town. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle apparently stayed here whilst researching The Hound of Baskervilles. Much of the 1950 film "Guilt is My Shadow" was filmed in the hotel and town.
Converted to a heritage house in 1999, the house is Grade 2* listed. There is a notable priest hole and tunnel to the back of the property, still intact, which was allegedly used to evade the Press Gangs by those in the know.
Still the main family house of the current owners who are temporarily living elsewhere (the current owners spent 20 years in Asia, hence much of the style and decor), Golden Lion House is not a pristine purpose built holiday let, but a genuine comfortable family home.
