Orange Tree Cottage (E1634) : Chulmleigh
Bealy Court’s eight delightful holiday cottages sit in 25 acres of stunningly beautiful Devonshire countryside, with breathtaking views and within easy reach of the family friendly beaches of Saunton Sands on the North Devon coast as well as Exmoor and Dartmoor.
Perfect for family holidays all year round, Bealy Court offers a large indoor swimming pool, an LTA standard tennis court, croquet lawn, games room with wi-fi, full size snooker table, pool table and air hockey, and two coarse fishing lakes (visitors will need to bring their own rods). The setting is secluded and tranquil, the lovely stone cottages – formerly a range of barns cluster around a very pretty, landscaped courtyard with glorious views to the distant hills of Dartmoor.
The cottages have been stylishly converted to create a wonderfully contemporary feel. Each cottage boasts a high degree of individual character, with original features such as oak roof timbers, stone walls and beams all carefully preserved. All of them enjoy elegant décor, wood burning stoves and flat screen LCD or plasma TVs. The roundhouse is particularly unique, offering round, beamed single storey accommodation with a contemporary feel.
Bealy Court is an ideal touring base, with the wilds of Exmoor and Dartmoor close by and the golden beaches of the North Devon coast a comfortable drive away. Tiverton, sea fishing at Ilfracombe, and go-karting, ten pin bowling and cycle hire at Barnstaple are all easily accessible, as are Knightshayes Court and Killerton (both National Trust Properties).
Horse riding is found locally and Chulmleigh, 4 miles, offers good pubs and restaurants, several shops, a post office and a par 3 golf course. The nearest main shopping centres are at Barnstaple and South Molton, which is also a renowned centre for antiques.
