Our detached Edwardian Villa sits on a hillside overlooking Saunton Sands Golf Club and Braunton Burrows; an extensive dune system on the Taw Estuary. It is within 10 minutes walk or 2 minutes drive from the stunning Saunton Sands beach.

Our front bedroom has a dual aspect with views across the dunes, & benefits from morning sun. The room is en-suite with a washbasin in the bedroom, & has a Double (4ft6ins/135cm) bed.

There is free parking & a continental style breakfast is provided.

The space
The bedroom commands extensive views across the Braunton Burrows Dune System and the Saunton Sands Golf courses. Towels and bathroom essentials are provided, and there is tea and coffee making facilities in the room.

The house stands in its own grounds with a large drive for parking. It has two outside south-facing terraces and a deck area, to take advantage of the sun.
Opposite us is Saunton Sands Golf Club, with its two championship 18 hole courses. Within 200m is the Southwest Coastal Path and the Tarka Trail walking routes, and we are 10 minutes walk or 2 minutes drive from the extensive and beautiful Saunton Sands beach, with its café, surf and beach shops, surf school and beachside grill restaurant. Adjacent to the beach is the Saunton Sands hotel, with its restaurant and spa facilities.

Around the headland is Croyde Bay, famous for surfing and host to the Goldcoast Oceanfest Festival in June each year, and in Braunton there are numerous surf shops and award winning fish and chips.

Guest access
Guests have a private bedroom with en-suite, and access to a ‘snug’ living room. Guests do not have access to the kitchen, our private living room opposite the snug, any other bedrooms, or the family bathroom. Outside, Guests have access to the deck and terraces and the driveway. There is no access to the Kitchen Courtyard.

The ‘Snug’ has a selection of comfortable chairs. There is a TV with access to Freeview channels and an attached Playstation 3 and Fire TV Stick with catchup TV, Amazon Prime Video and Netflix. It also has a small table and chairs in the large bay window overlooking the dunes. You can choose to eat here or in our dining room.

We do not make our kitchen available, but in the dining room there is a small fridge, microwave, toaster, kettle. For coffee, there is a Nespresso machine with a selection of pods, as well as ground and instant coffees. A selection of teas, including some fruit and herbal varieties are available too.

As well as your en-suite, there is a second shower room available for guests, accessed via the landing, which is more spacious than the en-suites.

We live in the property with our friendly but well behaved miniature schnauzer dog who is hypoallergenic - Jules is allergic to most dogs but fine with him.

Other things to note
Forgotten your charger? We have a variety of spare usb cables of most types, lightning cables, usb chargers, mains leads, extensions and adapters that we can lend you whilst you're here.

On first meeting, Louis can briefly bark or howl with excitement at meeting you. Someone will always be around to check you in if he's here, and if you're at all nervous about this, please let us know and we'll ensure that he is on his lead when you arrive. Once he's met you he reverts to being his normal friendly self, and will often bring you a toy as a greeting.

Location

Saunton, England, United Kingdom

We have a lovely south-facing location overlooking the golf course and dune system, with extensive views across the estuary, providing an ever-changing outlook. Our location is rural, meaning that transport links other than private car, are relatively scarce and time consuming. However, our proximity to the stunning beaches of North Devon’s Gold Coast make up for this! We are within 10 minutes walk or 2 minutes drive of Saunton Sands Beach; a stunning 5km stretch of sand with surfing, bodyboarding, beach huts and a cafe, with rock pools at its northern end.

Jules (Julian) & Ali (Alison) have been together since 1985 and have two adult daughters who live independently. Both of us were Police Officers for 30 years doing a variety of roles. Jules was a youth specialist for the last half of his service whilst Ali was involved in crime investigation for the majority of hers. Jules then became a senior support worker for 16-25's in semi-independent supported accommodation & completed a Youth Justice Degree at Nottingham Trent Uni, whilst Ali got involved in property development. We're both now retired, although Jules sometimes works as a freelance I.T. Consultant. We both love travelling through Airbnb and started hosting in early 2017.

Having been regular Airbnb travellers ourselves, we know that there were times when we value our space when being hosted, and times when we welcomed the chance to sit and have a chat - we're happy to do the same; we'll be guided by you.

If you have any special requirements or requests, then please let us know in advance and we'll try to accommodate them, or let you know in plenty of time if we are not able to.
