The village of Alverdiscott lost the pronunciation of its middle letters over a century ago and is now pronounced Alscott. The chance to change the spelling to reflect the pronunciation was rejected in Victorian times. One of the small village's 105 homes is Highsett, which is an attractive detached bungalow sat close to the parish church and surrounded by attractive rolling countryside. The property is an ideal base for exploring everything North Devon has to offer including renowned surfing beaches, rugged coastal scenery and countless historic villages. The home is spacious and traditionally furnished with accommodation ideally suited for both families and couples. The comfortable lounge has a large picture window overlooking the sizeable garden with a good size lawn for family games. There is an open fire for holidays in the cooler months. For meals with family and friends there is a separate dining room, while the well equipped kitchen/breakfast room is ideal for less formal dining on the run. Three tasteful bedrooms all have garden views. The bungalow sits in the centre of its own mature gardens with a large south facing patio ideal for al fresco dining. A small pond adds to the beauty of the garden. The nearby market town of Barnstaple is the commercial and agricultural centre of North Devon. It is a charming place that comfortably blends a handsome past with an energetic, present-day buzz. Central to all the attractions and on Exmoor’s edge, it offers a great base for exploring all that the local area has to offer. But it’s also a lovely place to explore in itself. It’s the shopping capital of the region, with a mix of cutting-edge retail outlets, long-established family owned stores and little boutiques and the pannier market hosts local food producers interspersed with dozens of cafes to rest weary shoppers’ legs. At weekends, Barnstaple makes wandering the streets a distinct pleasure, with performers and musicians out to entertain. If the weather turns nasty, you’re well provided for in the town. Let’s Go is Barnstaple’s newest family entertainment complex. There’s also a lovely 1930s cinema in town which offers four modern screens showing the latest releases as well as live screenings of major theatre productions.

The bungalow exceeded our expectations, we felt very 'at home'. the model ships are beautiful. we were truly thankful for the fire as the weather was inclement to say the least.
