The Rocket House is a unique architect designed, luxurious holiday retreat, that is perched high on the cliffs beside the coastal path. Nestled within the Hartland Peninsula, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with breathtaking views over the Atlantic and further far reaching views down the rugged North Devon coastline and Lundy Island. Sitting peacefully within its own private garden, beside the National Trust coastal path, this stunning property, dating from the 1890’s, was originally the building storing the apparatus used by rescue services, which included a breeches buoy system, giving it the name Rocket. To allow the rescue teams to practice, a mast was situated on the Warren and the ‘Rocket’ shot at the mast, then the breeches buoy was set up and used.
Ideal for a seaside holiday at any time of year, the beach at Hartland Quay and popular Hartland Quay Inn is just a short steep walk away. The coastline, in both directions, offers some of the most breathtaking scenery in the west country and there are many long beaches and hidden coves to explore. This property is beautifully presented, with stunning sea views from almost every room and a cosy wood burner to curl up beside on a cooler evening. Underfloor heating upstairs, oak floors and three beautiful bedrooms all with sea views downstairs makes this the perfect holiday choice for families and friends wishing to escape and unwind.
Hartland village is just 1½ miles away and has a good selection of village shops and highly commended pubs serving food. Bude, 13 miles, has a good selection of shops and restaurants, where many specialise in locally caught sea food. Alternatively there is a golf course, leisure centre with splash pool, surf schools and bowling. The delightful port town of Bideford is only 13 miles away and has a good selection of town amenities, restaurants a weekly market and boat trips to Lundy Island. Coastal walking, cycling, golf, riding, fishing, surfing and sailing are all available in this stunning area. Why not visit Docton Mill, Hartland Quay and Hartland Abbey, which are all close by, along with many pretty fishing villages to explore including nearby Clovelly, Instow and Appledore. For family fun the Big Sheep and Milky Way adventure parks are a must. Beach ¼ mile. Shop 1½ miles, pub and restaurant ¼ mile.
