PERIOD FEATURES/CONTEMPORARY STYLE
Situation And Amenities - Lee is a small coastal village quietly tucked away in a deep combe on the dramatic North Devon Coastline, often referred to as 'Fuscia Valley' due to its maritime but sheltered climate. Lee and nearby Lincombe account for just over 100 properties and boast a church, village hall and the Grampus Inn all within walking distance, as is the South West Coastal Path. From Lee there are a multitude of splendid contrasting local walks, most are well signposted and vary in type and length. The bustling village of Woolacombe, with a 3 mile long sandy beach, is a short drive. Further afield, Croyde Bay, Putsborough and Saunton Sands are all ideal for surfing and bathing. Saunton also offers a reputable championship golf course and Ilfracombe Golf course offers a view of the sea from every hole. Favoured Braunton is about 8 miles. Barnstaple, North Devon's regional centre is about 13 miles, or within about half an hour by car and provides a comprehensive range of both business and leisure facilities. From the town there is direct access on to the A361 North Devon Link Road, providing easy access to Tiverton Parkway railhead (London, Paddington in about 2 hours) and beyond to the M5 Motorway. Exmoor is also within easy accessible with its beautiful rugged coastline, dramatic scenery, open moorland and wooded valleys. Both Exeter and Bristol International airports are within about 2 hour's drive.
