Just a few miles from the north Devon coast, Laissez-Faire is a pretty, detached lodge, quietly situated on a 114-acre landscaped site, surrounded by spectacular Devon countryside, approached by a long lane, well off the Atlantic Highway between Bideford and Bude. The perfect choice for couples and families wanting a relaxing base from which to explore this stunning location and the ideal setting to enjoy a truly relaxing holiday. A dual aspect open plan living/dining room/kitchen leads out onto an enclosed verandah, the perfect spot to enjoy a morning coffee while you plan your day. Guests are welcome to use the excellent private leisure facilities of Penstowe Holiday Park (charges apply), including indoor and outdoor pools, sauna, Jacuzzi, tennis, badminton and squash courts, just a scenic 10-mile drive away. Visitors to the lodge also have free unrestricted use (daylight hours) of the two well stocked fishing lakes a short walk from the lodge (bring your own rods).
Lovely country, woodland and coastal walks abound, this really is the perfect spot to relax and unwind - a superb holiday choice whatever the time of year. Just 4 miles from picturesque Clovelly with its donkey transport and quaint cottages lining its cobbled lanes, fabulous beaches for relaxing and surfing at Westward Ho! Saunton Sands, Woolacombe and Croyde Bay are all within easy reach. The bustling resort of Bude, the spectacular coastal pathways around Hartland Point and the market town of Bideford from where visitors can take boat trips to the island of Lundy, England's only marine nature reserve are also easily reached. Golf, surfing, fishing and horse riding are all on offer close by and for cycling enthusiasts, walkers and dog owners the nearby Tarka Trail is not to be missed.
