Just a few minutes from Exeter, this luxury self-catering home with a large swim spa and integrated jacuzzi is a modern and welcoming escape for a large family gathering or group getaway. Huxham View has been thoughtfully designed to feel as though its bright living spaces are a continuation of the rural landscape outside. Sleek interiors welcome open-plan living while bi-fold doors and huge windows make the most of the spectacular panoramic Devonshire views. No Pets, Hen or Stag parties.
Set among rolling countryside, this is a home to spend time with loved ones, whether that’s sipping coffee around the breakfast bar or enjoying a family movie in the cinema space.
An outdoor TV and sound system invite you to chill out in the hot tub for a bit of screen time under the stars, while a pizza oven, barbecue and plenty of al fresco seating offer endless options for outdoor entertaining. The bright lights of Exeter, two beautiful beaches at Exmouth and Dawlish Warren and Dartmoor National Park are all close by, offering an array of exciting activities for all ages. However you choose to relax and have fun, memories are sure to be made.
Between the white weatherboard cladding and slate roof is a large and airy light-filled space, even on dark and stormy days. Spanning the length of the open-plan kitchen, living and dining area, gliding doors blur the lines between inside and out. Marvel at Devon’s rugged natural beauty from the comfort of the ample sofas in the snug area and huge dining table in the cooler months. On balmy summer days, wander out onto the raised decked area and lush green lawns, expanding the living space to the horizon. Modern and minimal interiors resplendent in cool greys, blues and whites evoke the calming vibes of this home’s coastal surroundings.
Huxham View is a true manifestation of relaxation for all. The spacious living and dining area and additional seating in the kitchen and further chill-out areas in the annexe offer plenty of nooks and crannies to keep everyone entertained or allow you to have a peaceful moment to relax. Cook up a storm in the stylish kitchen, where you can also whip up all manner of cocktails in the drinks preparation area, ready to serve from a special hatch. Relax with the papers or a good book in the snug, while the kids watch a movie on the projector screen or play pool in the entertainment area, replete with squashy lounge seating. If you need to take a break from all that relaxing, head to the well-equipped gym to build up a sweat.
Six bedrooms in the main house and a further two in the annexe, along with eight en-suite bathrooms, comfortably sleep 16 people. The standout master suite on the lower-ground floor offers stunning views, a king sleigh bed with integrated TV, dressing room and opulent bathroom. Three other bedrooms on the first floor open out onto a shared balcony. All eight bedrooms have king beds and smart TVs with Freeview.
With the wild expanse of Dartmoor just minutes away and beaches galore grazing the doorstep, adventurers will be in their element at Huxham View. Hiking trails, secret wild swimming spots and watersports are abundant, as are pretty seaside villages and quaint thatched cottages. Hire an outdoor pod to celebrate a special occasion at the Agricultural Inn in nearby Brampford Speke – a lovely country pub with amazing food. In Pinhoe village, the Proper Job serves a fantastic variety of delicious locally sourced fare. But you would not be blamed for wanting to stay at home. Exercising in the swim-spa, relaxing in the hot tub and reclining on the al fresco decking or roof terrace from sun-up to sundown, with not a worry in the world other than where the next cocktail is coming from, is a rather beautiful place to be.
Fresh Escapes will provide access details to the property exactly 48 hours before you check in. Huxham View is for your exclusive use, including the annexe on the left of the main photographs. The annexe is mobility friendly and there is one step into the main house with one bedroom on the lower-ground floor.
Exeter is a perfectly positioned city - it is easy to see why the Sunday Times voted it one of the best places to live in the UK. Two national parks, Dartmoor and Exmoor, are within easy reach, as well as stunning coastlines and rolling countryside. An abundance of culture awaits in Exeter. Art-house films are shown at the Picture House and Exeter Phoenix provides a full and varied calendar of events. Exeter also boasts various art galleries and a nationally acclaimed museum, Royal Albert Memorial Museum. Hosting the Rugby World Cup in 2015 put the city firmly on the map for sporting excellence. Exeter’s rugby team, the Exeter Chiefs, triumphed in the Premiership and continue to strive for excellence.
You’ll need a car to get around but a short taxi ride takes you to Exeter town centre in less than 10 minutes. There’s parking for five cars.
