Floor Plan





Located on the edge of the idyllic Exmoor National Park, in the picturesque town of Lynton, North Devon looking out to beautiful sea views is this magnificent grade II listed Georgian villa. Welcome to Seawood House.

Originally used as a grand and prestigious family home, Seawood House currently operates as a boutique hotel, renamed Seawood Hotel, and sits in arguably the best position in the area next to the historic cliff side railway with breathtaking sea views stretching to The Foreland over Lynmouth Bay all the way out to Wales.

The property offers flexible accommodation with 8 bedrooms in the main house, all with en-suite bathrooms, plus 3 further bedrooms in the self-contained apartment located on the lower ground floor. The property benefits from recent refurbishment throughout by the current owners, including the stunning high-spec modern kitchen. There is gorgeous period detail throughout the property, which enhances the opulent feeling of the home.

On the ground floor there is a generous entrance foyer, which leads to a formal dining room, the fully refurbished modern kitchen, an open reception area and the formal sitting room. Off the hallway is access to a second 'staff' kitchen and stairs which lead down to the self-contained apartment. The access to the self-contained apartment from within the main house can be closed off allowing access only from the apartment’s separate entrance at the front of the property.

On the first and second floors there is a total of 8 bedrooms, all with en-suite bathrooms and most with incredible sea views. There is flexibility to adjust the configuration of the bedrooms if required by knocking through some of the rooms, giving the bedrooms large walk-in dressing rooms or hobby/study areas.

The property is approached by car or foot via North Walk which leads to a private gravel driveway to the side of the property. At the front of the property is a wraparound terrace which faces the sea and offers the perfect spot for alfresco dining and drinks with spectacular sea views. Waking up early to have breakfast watching the sunrise is a must!

The location of Seawood House is perfect. Located off the North Walk (part of the South West Coast Path), it is only a short walk to the local amenities including the charming town centre of Lynton, the Valley of the Rocks and the town of Lynmouth. Seawood House also has its own winding footpath behind the property which takes you directly to the town past the start of the cliffside railway.

Whether Seawood House continues as a boutique Hotel or is converted back to a gorgeous residential home, it will continue to be a beautiful place to live and a home which guests, friends and family are going to love visiting.
