A Little Bit of Luxury In The Heart of Devon

Clovehayes is a recently refurbished detached 3 bedroom property sleeping 6.  It has a mainly lawned garden, with paddock to the rear, free parking and free WiFi. All Inclusive Price Policy (see website for full details).

A little piece of English countryside just a short walk from North Tawton Town Square. Walkable Shops, Pubs and Bus Stop.

Recently refurbished throughout, it lies in a beautiful historical spot surrounded by greenery.  On the western side of the paddock lies Court Green, a grade II listed building and large garden, St Peter’s Church and grounds, and the Town Square with its grade II listed Jubilee Clock Tower.  The paddock itself contains part of a Scheduled Monument, a Roman Motte which is known as Castle Court. This appears as a small hill at the side of the paddock with a dip around its base, the other part lying in the grounds of Court Green.

The property is beautifully furnished with large luxurious zip and link beds and bedding. There are two Emperor (200 x 200) and one Super king (180 x 200), splitting into twins if required.

One Emperor bedroom is en suite and there is one bathroom with bath and shower facilities for use by all guests. All bedrooms have a Pure DAB radio with Bluetooth connection, hair dryer, alarm clock, wooden coat hangers and USB sockets. A selection of luxury towels is provided for use on the premises, together with Duck Island toiletries. Please bring your own towels for days out.

Heating is by gas central heating and burning log effect gas fire. The bathroom and en suite have electric underfloor heating which can be switched on if required. Towel rails can also be heated electrically for those hot summer days when central heating is not required. Bluetooth connection to mirrors in the bathroom and en suite enable personal music to be played. A shaver plug is available in the bathroom.

The kitchen is fully equipped with items such as Sage Creatista Nespresso coffee maker with milk wand, Sage blender, Sage food processor, microwave, Crock-Pot, steamer, Robert Welch cutlery, John Lewis Croft Collection Luna tableware as well as the usual, electric oven, ceramic hob, dishwasher, washing machine and tumble dryer. 1 socket is USB. There is a separate dining room which seats six.

A smart TV with Freesat, NOW TV and a Pure DAB radio with Bluetooth are located in the living room. Fibre Broadband with free WiFi is available. Through the living room French doors there is direct access to the patio, garden and paddock. A rattan 6 seater table set with 4 foot stools and Weber Genesis II gas barbecue are conveniently located just outside of the living room and close to the dining room and kitchen.

Clovehayes has convenient free parking with direct access to the property, ideal for unloading luggage.

Regarding accessibility – unfortunately the bungalow is not currently suitable for wheelchairs and has a few steps to access the property.

The beds are quite high and the fishpond is not covered or fenced.

Children over 12 are very welcome.

We have a policy of no pets at the property and no smoking or vaping inside of the property.
