This quaint, detached house of Lauriston, which was originally the home of acclaimed author and poet Flora Thompson, who wrote Larkrise to Candleford, is set in the seaside in Brixham, Devon.
Lauriston is a perfect location for a family of eight's seaside break, being within reach of the South Devon AONB and a wealth of beaches.
When you arrive, park in one of the two off-road parking places before ascending the steps to this warm and inviting home-away-from-home.
Hang your belongings in the hallway before entering the sitting room, where the exposed stonework and woodburning fire provide a pleasant ambience, perfect for a movie night with the Smart TV.
A snug can be located across the hall, where you can relax in one of the leather armchairs with a good book; a second snug (or 5th bedroom) rests on the second floor, where you can relax and watch TV.
Continue to the kitchen/diner, which is full of charm and boasts a plethora of appliances, including a range cooker, satisfying any aspiring chef.
Enjoy your delicious dinner at the neighbouring dining table or take it out to one of the outdoor spots to dine alfresco.
A handy utility and cloakroom are located just off the kitchen/diner, for added convenience.
When it's time to retire for the night, make your way up the stairs to one of the four appealing bedrooms, the first of which is a king-size with views out to Brixham, while two others are king-sizes with Jack-and-Jill access to a bathroom offering a freestanding bath and a walk-in shower.
All of the bedrooms on this floor have plenty of character, whilst also hosting storage for your belongings.
On this floor, you'll also find a shower room where you can relax your muscles after a day packed with watersports.
Continue upstairs to another two bedrooms, both with a double futon bed and with Velux windows that flood the room with natural light and views across the rooftops towards All Saints Church and the sea beyond.
Make the most of the property's outside areas, which include a charming veranda and terrace with a bistro set and a pond in the front, and a raised terrace with a barbecue and fire pit in the back!
Get to know your surroundings by walking into the town's centre, where you'll find the Brixham Heritage Museum, the Golden Hind Museum Ship, and the Brixham Harbour, as well as a variety of friendly eateries and shops. Spend some time on Berry Head, where anglers can take advantage of the fishing point, history buffs can visit the Berry Head Lighthouse, and walkers can wander down the South West Coastal Path and into the Berry Head National Nature Reserve; St Mary's Bay is a little further along the coast. Travel a short distance to Churston Cove, where you'll find other beaches, such as Churston Cove and Elberry Cove, as well as a renowned golf course.
There's still plenty to see in the surrounding region, from the charming towns of Dartmouth and Paignton to the historic treasures of The Daymark and Kingswear Castle; you'll never be bored.
Choose Lauriston for a memorable holiday.
