Corffe House – Luxury country house, North Devon
Impressive yet welcoming, Corffe is an 18th century Grade II listed Georgian country house and was the rectory to the thirteenth century Church of St Peter from 1801 to 1948. Today the property has been transformed from a family residence into a fabulous holiday house. When you stay at Corffe you could be forgiven for thinking you are staring in your own episode of Downton Abbey with its many generous sized rooms and sweeping staircase. It is this combined with the modern-day touches such as the cinema room, shared indoor heated pool and tennis court not to mention uninterrupted views over the beautiful Devon countryside that make for an unforgettable stay.
Corffe House is ideal for family gatherings and group celebrations due to its idyllic location and first class facilities. The estate is nestled on the outskirts of the picture postcard village of Tawstock, handily located a short drive from the bustling market town of Barnstaple and within easy reach of the stunning North Devon coastline with its amazing beaches and endless attractions. The house itself offers both space and character with many charming period features including large sash windows, original shutters, marble fireplaces and ornate coving. Whether you choose to make Corffe your home for a week or just a short break you are sure of a warm welcome.
With five acres of private land, Corffe has something for everyone. After a busy day taking in all that North Devon has to offer, head back to the comfort of Corffe and relax in the indoor heated pool, toddler pool and hot tub, have a game of tennis on the all-weather tennis court, barbecue in the central courtyard, let the kids have fun on the adventure play area or return to nature exploring the woodland and lawns.
