Rooms & Features
Northleigh House sleeps 8 in 4 bedrooms
Celebrate a special occasion with friends or enjoy a family holiday in North Devon at Northleigh House, a large four-bedroom holiday home accommodating up to eight. The beautiful self-catering property near Barnstaple has been finished to a very high standard and is split over two levels.
On the ground floor there is a large living room, a pretty conservatory, a well-equipped kitchen, a handy utility room and a good-sized dining room where the table doubles up as snooker/pool table. Upstairs at Northleigh House there are four spacious bedrooms, two with king-size double beds, one with link beds allowing it to be set up either as a double or a twin and finally a pretty twin with two full-size single beds. There are also two family bathrooms located on the first floor.
Outside, Northleigh House is surrounded by landscaped gardens that gently slope down towards the local fields. Within the garden there is a children’s play area and outdoor furniture for alfresco dinners. The garden is also home to some wonderful wildlife, especially local birds that enjoy feeding here.
The beautiful, bright and spacious living room is centrally located in Northleigh House and is a great place for all the family to gather. The double aspect living room benefits from large windows that allow plenty of sunlight to stream into the room no matter what time of year you are staying. On a cold winter’s evening gather in front of the wood burner and play games with friends and family, while in the summer sit back and relax on the comfy sofas as you admire the wonderful countryside views. There is also a handy table and chairs for morning coffee or reading a book.
Next door to the living room is the conservatory that enjoys far-reaching views over the local North Devon countryside, and on a clear day you will be able to spot the sea and Hartland on the horizon. The conservatory has a selection of wicker furniture and is the best place to watch the sunset or look out for the local wildlife that visits the garden.
Opposite the living room is the dining room. At the heart of the room is a period dining table seating up to eight, this table also doubles up as the house pool/snooker table, which is available throughout your stay, balls, cues and a scoring board are also provided.
Along the hallway from the dining room is a handy ground floor cloakroom with WC and washbasin.
Kitchen and utility room
Accessed from the main hallway or the dining room is the well-equipped kitchen that has been finished to a high standard. Within the main kitchen there is a fridge/freezer, an electric cooker with hob, a dishwasher, a microwave and a coffee machine. There is also a central island, a butlers sink and plenty of storage. A breakfast room can be found alongside the kitchen, here you will find a decorative AGA and a country pine table complete with benches and a view into the walled section of garden.
A useful separate utility room is accessed via the living room and has a washing machine, a tumble dryer and direct access to the rear patio area - this is a great place to store any muddy boots or wet coats, as well as dry off any dogs after enjoying a local walk in the North Devon countryside.
