About Hallsannery House
Hallsannery House is a beautiful late Georgian/ early Victorian listed manor house set in five acres of parkland, woods and gardens and is a fantastic base for exploring the delights of unspoilt North Devon.
The Estate comfortably accommodates up to 38 guests with the addition of the Coach House located behind the main house.
The house has 11 modest, well lit bedrooms to sleep up to 22 guests (plus 4 – 6 children), all with en-suites and most with stunning views of the countryside. One bedroom is on the ground floor with its own wet room, if you’d prefer to avoid the stairs.
On the ground floor, there’s three bright and spacious reception rooms, including two sitting rooms housing plush sofas, smart Tv’s, log burner and games plus a library to offer a quiet space to relax and enjoy a good book.
There’s a large farmhouse kitchen, with towering original dresser, electric range and the most convivial of kitchen tables – fit for a hungry crowd of 16… or more and also an impressive chandeliered dining room that can seat up to 72 guests for large celebrations or more formal house party dining.
The main house also has an indoor games room with table tennis and a pool table
The Coach House
The Coach House sleeps 8 guests and there’s the option of a further 6 guests in additional Z beds for a small additional cost. It has 4 bedrooms including three double/twin rooms (2 with en-suites) and a single room with a shared bathroom. It also has a fully equipped kitchen, a lounge with a log burner and a private courtyard.
Hallsannery House offers catering for as much, or as little, of your stay as you’d like. This can include drop off meals, stocking the larder, or breakfast/brunch and a three-course dinner with canapes and coffee.
Self-catered stays are also an option with the well-equipped kitchens and facilities.
Edmund’s Choice of Extraordinary Feature
“It’s really difficult to choose a favourite thing about Hallsannery House. It offers so much both inside and out, but if I had to choose, it would be the fire pit for me. Toasting marshmallows on the fire, after a long day exploring, sounds like perfection to me!”
About the location
Hallsannery House is just over a mile from the shops, cafes and eateries of Bideford. Also Instow’s sandy beaches are an easy 15-minute drive away which are ideal for swimming, surfing or climbing the dunes. If biking and walking is more your style, there’ are plenty of trails to explore the countryside.
Things to do
The house has lots of outdoor space for activities to keep everyone entertained, including treetop swing, a bamboo maze, a three-acre ‘off the lead’ fenced field for exercising your dog and a tennis court. There’s also a barbeque, fire pit (to toast marshmallows), and a terrace for evening drinks. You can also hire a hot tub at cost – just ask if this is of interest.
