Lynton 8 miles.
Bluebeard's Rest (so called due to local legend claiming that the infamous Pirate Bluebeard buried treasure in one of the farm fields) is a beautifully styled annex located in the stunning Exmoor countryside, and provides the perfect base from which to explore this beautiful part of the country.
Created very much for couples, almost boutique hotel in presentation, it's the perfect place to return to after a hard day exploring the rugged north Devon coastline.
Heated throughout by under-floor heating, it's guaranteed to keep you warm and toasty whatever the weather.
Created on one level (ground floor), you enter into the beautifully appointed kitchen / diner, equipped with all the amenities you could need to create mouth watering dishes to enjoy in the privacy of the intimate dining nook in the kitchen.
You then enter into the superbly appointed en-suite bedroom, cleverly designed to make the maximum use of the space available: relax on the king size bed, or curl up with a good book in the armchairs provided (but please note - this is the only comfortable indoor seating area - there is no separate sitting room).
The en-suite shower room provides additional luxury, with a large shower cubicle complete with rainhead shower.
When the weather permits (and it frequently does in this part of the country) then throw open the bi-fold doors and allow the Exmoor air to flood into the property.
The bi-fold doors also give access to the private and enclosed patio to the front of the property - the perfect place to enjoy al-fresco dining, or a spot of stargazing: Exmoor National Park is an International Dark Sky Reserve and home to some of the darkest skies in the country!
On a clear night, the night sky of Exmoor is absolutely stunning.
If you want to explore the area, then take a walk to Heddon's Mouth - only 2 miles away, but be warned, it's a strenuous walk - especially the return leg uphill!
A little further afield lie Woody Bay (3 miles) and Valley of the Rocks (4 miles) - both absolutely stunning and their beauty preserved by the National Trust.
If you prefer your leisure time to be spent in a more relaxing manner, then make the short journey (6 miles) to the small rural town of Lynton and coastal village of Lynmouth - which guarantee an escape to those wishing a complete change from the busy pace of modern life.
If you are looking for stunning coastline, amazing countryside or quaint villages, then Bluebeard's Rest is the ideal choice.
