Combe Martin chateau / country house description

Overview:
Lynway House is situated on the spectacular North Devon coastline within an area of outstanding natural beauty. It offers a unique experience for individuals requiring self-catering in Devon.

The house is an elegant late Victorian country house, with great character and panoramic views over the sea and Exmoor. It was built as a summer retreat in 1890 for a wealthy London bankers family. The house is totally hidden in almost 3 acres of gardens and natural woodland yet just a whisper away from Lynton and Lynmouth. It is only a short stroll to all of the areas attractions such as Valley of the Rocks, the beautiful waterfalls of Watersmeet and the famous 'Cliff Railway' which takes you to the picturesque harbour of Lynmouth.

Nestling some 400 feet above where Exmoor meets the sea, overlooking Exmoor National Park, the house exudes wide open space and tranquillity. Enjoy the large garden with barbecue area and relax on the terrace or in the large conservatory, all taking in the panoramic sea views. There are pubs, restaurants and shops a few minutes walk away and also a beach in Lynmouth.

Interior and grounds:
The house is presented to a very high standard retaining many original features including a tiled entrance hall that leads to an impressive grand staircase which takes you to 10 well appointed bedrooms, some with sea views and balconies.

Off the entrance hall are two large comfortable lounges: one with an open fireplace, baby grand piano, colour TV and DVD; the second with an open fireplace, colour TV and CD player. French windows lead out onto a balcony overlooking the garden and beyond to Exmoor National Park and the North Devon Coastline.

The ground floor also hosts a dining room with a large table and ample seating with views out over the terrace. The dining room adjoins the spacious farmhouse style kitchen. The kitchen is well equipped with a three oven Aga, double oven, hob, microwave, two large fridge freezers and a diswasher. A separate laundry room is accessed from the outside with washing machine and tumble dryer.

Plenty of parking can be found in the large public car park just 300 metres from the house, via a graduated sloping path. Weekly passes can be obtained from the Tourist Board. There is access for cars so visitors can be dropped off at the property. There is also wireless internet access available. Dogs are welcome.
