Combe Martin, North Devon. Bay View is a holiday home set in Exmoor National Park on a hill at the end of a private road with a commanding position overlooking the bay and beach. Gorgeous views of the sea and village of Combe Martin. Though very close to the beach and the hustle and bustle of this popular holiday destination, Bay View is located in a peaceful spot. Sea or beach views from all rooms of the house.
Important note: Due to the steepness and different levels of the garden; and the staircase has open treads/bannisters, Bay View is not suitable for toddlers/young children or those with mobility problems. Please also note the information under “Private off-road parking” below for access information. If you wish to discuss this in more detail please contact us.
