Hillside Retreat

Hillview Retreat The South West

Devon views and designer details

Designed by an award-winning architect and commanding spectacular rural views, Hillview Retreat is a rather special large house to rent in Devon where you can gather with friends or family for an escape from everyday life.

A  splendid, oak-framed open-plan living area is bounded by a huge ‘A’ frame window at one end and a wall of windows to the side. These offer sweeping views of the South Hams landscape, whether you’re cooking in the kitchen, enjoying a sociable meal, or relaxing together on the huge sofas. Bi-fold doors open to a wraparound oak balcony area for al fresco dining, sunbathing and star gazing.

The four spacious bedrooms, sleeping up to 8 guests, are just as luxurious as the living areas and all have access to stunning designer bathrooms. Three bedrooms are on the lower ground floor, where you  can step out into the private garden to soak up those views. The fourth is a ground floor bedroom which has an accessible designer bathroom, perfect for those who are less able.

With modern luxuries throughout, including underfloor heating, a Morsø log burner and a private outdoor hot tub, this beautiful luxury house to rent is designed for a relaxing and memorable holiday.

Lots to do, whatever the weather

Hillview Retreat sits within a 14-acre estate where you have access to a shared outdoor pool, tennis courts and adventure playground for the children. If the sun fails to make an appearance, relax in the shared indoor pool and sauna room and let the children loose in the soft play area.
