A truly lovely country residence in Exmoor's glorious Heddon Valley. Kittitoe House is set in sunny, sheltered gardens surrounded by woods full of red deer and bird song. To complete this rural idyll a trout stream meanders through the grounds.

This is the perfect location for a coast and country holiday with family and friends. A wonderful house for that special celebration, or for those needing to relax, a tranquil haven in enchanting countryside.

The accommodation is spacious, light filled and beautifully furnished in a chic but relaxed country style - the house is peppered with antiques. A stylish conservatory and verandah offer comfortable alternatives to the classic dining room for that special celebration meal. The spacious living room with a fabulous stone fireplace offers a cosy retreat at the end of a long day at the coast.

Upstairs you will find four poster beds for that touch of grandeur and a master bedroom with a romantic balcony and beautiful views down the valley.

The Heddon Valley is accustomed to plaudits - beloved as it was by the Romantic Poets. A deep wooded clough through which the eponymous watercourse twists its way to the sea, this is a bewitching landscape to explore. You will discover wonderful walks through woods and wild moor, evocative names such as the Hangman Hills, and a dramatic coastline of rugged cliffs plunging down to rocky bays and smugglers' coves.

For a day on the sand - try Woolacombe, Putsborough, Croyde and Saunton. Excellent beaches whose golden shores offer a range of activities, from rock pooling and sandcastles, to surfing and water-sports.

A visit to the fascinating National Trust island of Lundy is a must. Once the refuge of pirates, it is now a haven for wildlife. A variety of boat trips are available from Ilfracombe, Lynmouth, Bideford and Clovelly. Why not take a paddle-steamer trip to explore the spectacular north Devon/Somerset coast?

The accommodation consists of:

- A light filled, spacious living room with a large log fireplace
- An elegant conservatory furnished with chaise lounge, dining table and seating.
- The dining room is gracefully furnished with antiques - a French window opens out on to the verandah and into the garden
