1 Old Smithy Bungalow is a holiday restricted chalet on a select site of only 12 properties which is within a stones throw from the dog-friendly Old Smithy thatched Inn and within a mile of the beach and south west coastal path. The property is an ideal investment and benefits from well-presented accommodation, off-road parking space and private communal gardens. Accommodation comprises; an open plan lounge/kitchen/diner, conservatory, bathroom and two double bedrooms.

The rugged coastline around this region is extremely dramatic, beautiful and classed as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). The renowned Welcombe Mouth is a quiet and tranquil beach, much quieter than some of the sandy beaches further down the coast due to it's limited access and remoteness, it is one of North Devon's best kept secrets! The village has a good range of amenities including a period Inn (serving daytime and evening meals), general store/Post Office and active village church. The larger village of Hartland has an excellent range of local amenities including cafe, shops, Post Office, pubs, medical centre, church and primary school. Just over the Cornish border is the coastal town of Bude with a range of larger shopping facilities, amenities and beach. Bideford Town (around 17 miles) and the regional centre of Barnstaple (27 miles) offer a wider range of shops, businesses, (Barnstaple) train station, restaurant, leisure and commercial venues and access to the M5 motorway network via the A361.
