Situation And Amenities - Perfectly located near shore and moor, in the wonderful village of Mortehoe, near fabulous coastal paths, moorland walks, local swimming beach known as Grunta and Woolacombe surfing. Mortehoe is within an area of Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), UNESCO Biosphere reserve, Conservation Area, and also surrounded by National Trust farmland. The property enjoys views to the rear over National Trust farmland, and a glimpse of the sea from the roof garden. Mortehoe is on the borders of Woolacombe and these twin villages stand on the Atlantic coast. Woolacombe is famous for its three mile sandy beach, between Baggy and Morte Points, and regularly receives Blue Flag and Premier Seaside Beach Awards. It has also become one of Devon's premier surfing destinations. Mortehoe and Woolacombe villages offer a good range of shops, restaurants, bars , leisure facilities and outstanding local primary school. The well regarded villages of Croyde and Saunton are both located a short drive away, each offering further sandy beaches and in the case of Saunton, a popular golf course. There are a number of other golf courses locally including at Mortehoe itself. National cycle route 27 passes the house, as does a bus service to Barnstaple and Woolacombe. Nearby Ilfracombe has an attractive harbour and Exmoor National Park and Lynton / Lynmouth with dramatic coastal scenery are easily accessible by car. North Devon's main trading centre, Barnstaple, is approximately 15 miles and offers a wider range of amenities and facilities one would associate with a large town. It also provides transport links onto the A361 (North Devon Link Road) which, in turn, connects to the M5 at Junction 27, where rail links to London (Paddington) in about 2 hours can be found at Tiverton Parkway. The nearest airports are at Bristol and Exeter. Views of Mortehoe Village, surrounding countryside and distance coastal views can be seen from the roof terrace of the property.
