Access to the bungalow is either via the steps or convenient ramp leading down to the front door and garden. Inside the accommodation is all on one level and comprises three bedrooms, 2 super kings with zip & link beds (one with an additional 2’6 pull out single and a king size. The main bedroom has an en-suite shower room and lovely river and town views and there’s a family bathroom with a bath and shower cubicle. There’s a comfortable lounge with smart TV, a wood burner and patio doors leading out onto the large decking where you can enjoy the beautiful views and some al-fresco meals, breakfast or an evening drink. The kitchen/diner is the centrepiece of this property and offers everything you need to entertain and cater for your friends or family with patio doors so you can let the outside in, a sofa so you can enjoy the smart TV, dining table and a coffee machine for some real barista style beverages. Other than the oven and hob, the rest of the main appliances including washing machine, tumble dryer, microwave, dishwasher and fridge/freezer are all in the adjacent utility room.
Spending time outdoors at The Orchard is a pleasure, what with the amazing views from the decking and the well maintained lawned garden. Bideford is the 2nd largest town in N Devon with plenty to see and do with a lovely river front and port, which was once Britain’s 3rd largest. Beaches, such as Westward Ho! and Instow are firm favourites locally and are less than 4 miles away and the South West Coastal Path is a must for keen walkers & runners as is the popular Tarka Trail, which stretches for 180 miles and can be accessed via the same side of the river. It provides the unique opportunity to follow a disused railway line by foot or bicycle, allowing you to enjoy some of Devon’s finest countryside and river views and enjoy various treats along the way through Instow, Fremington Quay and onto Barnstaple, North Devon’s historical regional centre. Swimming, surfing, canoeing and entertainment for all the family plus fishing are all close by and the for a day with a difference why not take a trip across to Lundy Island? With regular trips from Bideford, you can enjoy the home to England’s first statutory
Marine Nature Reserve, due to its unique flora and fauna. Measuring just 3 miles by ¾ mile, this entire island has been designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest. Westward Ho!, the nearest seaside village offers an array of seaside amenities including some fascinating curiosity shops and a range of restaurants and cafes. Within easy reach are 2 popular top attractions, The Big Sheep amusement farm park and if you fancy some high ropes, wall climbing, surfing or even a spot of coasteering, The Ultimate Adventure Centre is the place to visit! The beaches are a main attraction for many with surfer-friendly Westward Ho! and slightly further afield, award winning Saunton Sands, Woolacombe & Croyde are also a must for your itinerary. Being very close to the A39 Atlantic Highway, Bideford is conveniently located for day trips to other beautiful places such as Exmoor National Park with stunning dark skies for great star gazing & locations such as Clovelly, Hartland and North Cornwall.
