Herons Bank

Luxurious modern holiday house in a private setting in Devon with far reaching views over the beautiful Culm Valley. Sleeps 14 and has a spa hall with a heated pool and hot tub, a games room, BBQ lodge and play area. Secure grounds, 1 cot available at no extra charge, sorry no pets.

Herons Bank is an exemplar of modern luxury, with heaps of space and everything you could possibly need for your large group stay. Grounds are gated and secure with a south facing garden that has big lawns and a patio that runs the length of the house. There's a Nordic style BBQ lodge for year round use and a play area and trampoline for the younger folk.

An enclosed porch leads through to the wide hallway. Off this is Bedroom 5 and the commodious sitting room with doors that open onto the garden. The other side of the hall is a WC and the kitchen, complete with all mod cons like a double oven, 5 ring induction hob and built in coffee maker. Off this is the utility room with laundry facilities, and the light and airy dining area where a long sturdy table is perfect for you all to get together for a happy celebration feast.

To the right of the dining room is the sitting room, to the left is the games room where you can all unwind with a game of snooker or catch a big match on the 50" TV; there’s comfy seating for spectators and doors onto the patio for when you need a breath of fresh air. Off the dining room is the amazing spa hall; while away the hours relaxing on loungers, have a game of table tennis, a soak in the hot tub, and a dip in the pool whenever you fancy it, day or night, regardless of what the weather’s doing. There are even showers and separate changing rooms, it’s all so well thought out.

Upstairs, off the landing are Bedrooms 1-4 and the main bathroom, with a bath and separate shower cubicle. If you’re here in the winter you’ll notice how incredibly cosy it is at Herons Bank – thanks to underfloor heating throughout, run off an underground heat source pump. Green credentials, big tick.

All the bedrooms have plenty of space for hanging clothes, so as long as you have room in the car, bring all you want. There are TVs in every room too, and beds are zip and link so they can be arranged as superkings or twins. Bedroom 2 has an extra single bed so can sleep 3 people, and Bedroom 5 has two extra singles, one of them with a pull out bed, so can sleep 5; great for families and for friends and colleagues who are happy to share. Bedrooms 1 and 2 have en suite shower rooms, and Bedroom 1 has the luxury of a balcony; step out to watch the sunset, admire the stars, or greet the day.
