Large Self Catering House:
Bicclescombe Grange in Ilfracombe, Devon
Bicclescombe Grange is a large detached centrally heated house, formerly a large Gentleman's residence, built around the turn of the last century. The house offers accommodation on three storeys and is furnished in a period style, with a magnificent indoor heated swimming pool plus many other fantastic features.
The Grange lies on the outskirts of Ilfracombe, the main coastal resort on North Devon's beautiful coastline and is set at the end of a private drive, within three acres of superb well appointed gardens, adjoining open fields plus countryside. Bicclescombe Park, with its many amenities sits at the end of our drive whilst nearby are the wonderful sandy beaches of Woolacombe, Saunton plus Croyde.
It's a very large house and offers a games room with a full sized snooker table, dart board, table tennis table plus piano. There's a large screen television with all Sky's channels plus a computer with internet access. And for the younger children, there are lots and lots of toys!
We had a large house and now we've got a large kitchen to go with it! The kitchen area has been completely overhauled and expanded. Granite surfaces, marble tiles, solid oak furniture plus stainless steel appliances, including a seven burner range and a very large American style fridge freezer make this a wonderful place to cook. With high and low level seating areas, a large flat screen television with Sky Plus, an ice maker and even a large capacity wine cooler, it's also a great place to socialise, supervise children, or just sit with a glass of wine and watch the chef at work.
With eight bedrooms this large holiday house sleeping twenty two and is ideal for a luxury self-catering extended family holiday or for several families or group of friends to get together. Or perhaps you are looking for a fantastic party venue to celebrate a 40th birthday, 50th birthday, or other special occasion. Or maybe you'd just like somewhere you can relax in style.
