Built in 2009, Herons Bank sleeps 14 people and brings you top notch modern luxury in the spectacular Devon countryside with far reaching views and plenty to see and do nearby. The house is just a few minutes from J27 and 28 of the M5 and is reached via a private road with secure gated access. Step into a porch that leads straight through to a spacious hallway; there’s underfloor heating throughout so no need to worry about bringing your woollies in the winter! What’s more, it’s all very eco-friendly, run off a ground source heat pump.
Off to the left of the hall is a WC and next to it, the kitchen; the kitchen allows for easy cooking and socialising so no-one misses out on the fun, and with a table and breakfast bar it makes a good quiet space for those who like to slip down early in the morning – or for a cheeky midnight feast! It’s very well equipped with all you need to create a scrumptious celebration dinner, but if that sounds like too much hard work just book one of our tried and tested professional caterers to come in and cook for you – what a treat!
Off the kitchen is a big utility room where you’ll find an extra fridge/freezer, a washing machine and dryer and an extra dishwasher. Step down from the kitchen to the dining area, a long room with a glass roof and huge bifold doors that you can open wide to bring the sunshine in; there’s a chunky dining table to seat you all, and off to the right is the games room where there’s a full size snooker table, a whopper of a Smart TV (50" screen), and comfy seating.
The pool hall is next to the games room, accessed via an electronically secure door. And what luxury! As you go in there’s a separate shower room and two changing rooms, and then there’s the pool room itself. Spacious isn’t the word for it! The pool measures 16ft x 32ft with an even depth of 4ft 6”; there’s loads of room for loungers to one side and there’s a shower area, a WC, and table tennis that can be used indoors or outdoors. At the end of the hall is the hot tub and French doors that open onto a sheltered patio.
Back in the main hall, straight ahead are the stairs and to the right is Bedroom 5, where there's snooze space for 5 so it makes a great room for a family with young children. The bedrooms at Herons Bank all have zip and link beds that can be arranged as a superking or as two singles; in addition, Bedroom 2 has an extra single so it sleeps 3, and Bedroom 5 has two extra singles, one with a further pull out bed. There's soft carpeting in all bedrooms, TVs and plenty of wardrobe space – great for those who don’t travel light! Also off right of the hall is the capacious sitting room, with huge double doors out to the patio, ample inviting sofas to curl up on, a huge TV, and doors leading through to the dining room.
Upstairs are Bedrooms 1-4; Bedroom 1 has an en suite shower room, and what’s really special – a balcony where you can make the most of those incredible views of big open skies and huge rolling fields. What a way to start the day! Bedroom 2 has an en suite shower room too, and also off the spacious landing is a WC and the family bathroom with a bath tub and a separate shower cubicle.
Outside are huge lawns where the little ones can run about and let off steam, or where grown-ups can have a civilised game of croquet, or you know, just laze about in the sunshine. Fire up the bbq, make the table look pretty and enjoy a leisurely lunch or dinner alfresco – it’s what holidays are all about. Come down to Devon and make the most of this wonderful large group self catering accommodation; celebrate that special occasion in style, make very special memories to take home with you. Book today!
