The Art House

Bideford, North Devon
Luxury Holiday Home

The Art House luxury holiday home in the heart of Bideford on the North Devon coast was designed by a wife and husband who are artists’ and hotel designers by profession, a wonderfully unique retreat.

This recently renovated three-storey Grade ll listed Georgian Townhouse rests on a historic street, The Strand in Bideford where Charles Kingsley once resided, within walking distance of the thriving town centre.

Situated over three floors, The Art House is designed to a very high specification and has been recently converted back to one large family home with all the original features retained including coving and all large sash windows with shutters, high ceilings and a welcoming ambience.

You enter the house via a hallway, which continues through to a beautiful open-plan living area.

Whether you are settling down for a warm drink prepared by your very own coffee machine, or coming together for a meal after the sun sets cooked in the kitchen which has a chimney breast where the range cooker is placed, this is a heart-warming base to unwind.

For somewhere cosy to relax as the night draws in, the sitting room on the first floor is your precious haven to snuggle up in front of the ‘feature’ woodburner.

It has two large chesterfield sofas to sit 8 people so you can truly escape from it all completed with new real wood flooring throughout the property and new antique furniture has been added in keeping with the period of property.

A collection of bedrooms to choose from, you will be impressed by the variety on offer. Set over three floors are four bedrooms: 1 x second floor king-size, 1 x second floor double, 1 x first floor double, 1 x second floor single with pull-out bed.

Roadside parking on a first come first served basis, off-road parking nearby and public car parks.
