Housed in a Grade II listed 17th century farmhouse, this home in Devon is all about retro vibes – and not just the ones dating back to 1630 when it was built. From the moment you step through its double-height hallway, you’ll feel like you’re in the chicest of country hideaways. Deep blue walls blend with exposed beams, a tangerine sofa and chairs, antique copperware ornaments, funky band posters and a wood-burning fireplace in the open-plan living room while the kitchen’s tiled walls and picnic–style table bring a bright cheerfulness to the room. Both bedrooms, meanwhile, have their own carefully curated style. The master bedroom boasts a Civil War-era hearth, a reading nook and nature-inspired decor while the second bedroom feels cool and calm with its dark indigo walls, pastel-pink pink details and a sunny window seat to take in the garden views. Spread over three floors, this home is warm and intimate while giving everyone enough space to chill out and do their own thing. With Croyde, Woolacombe and Saunton Sands beaches all twenty minutes away by car, spend the day at the seaside. Then come home to luxuriate under the outdoor whiskey barrel shower before sitting down to an alfresco barbecue meal in the garden. Finish the night off with a glass of wine on the plant-framed terrace, then curl up by the wood-burning fire before it’s time to retreat to your dreamy beds.
