Hidden Gem Retreat is exactly as described! This beautifully fitted compact studio apartment is hidden in a quiet leafy road in the seaside town of Budleigh Salterton, and provides the ideal getaway for those seeking quiet and relaxation. The property is in the grounds of Heath Cliff House where complimentary therapies are available. Specific times have been allocated to Hidden Gem guests where treatments can be booked if desired. If treatments are booked, guests can enjoy the sauna and the hot tub (available from July) during the time of their appointment. It is necessary to book treatments direct with the on-site owners – we can provide additional information if requested..
Hidden Gem is compact with an open-plan living area, luxuriously fitted with a super king bed (which can be made up as two singles on request), small table and chairs, wall-mounted TV, run of kitchen units including fridge, hob and oven. Shower room. Private courtyard to side of building with patio furniture. Parking available alongside the apartment.
The iconic pebble beach at Budleigh is a gentle 15 minute stroll, as is the town centre which houses many independent clothes, gift and food shops and a good selection of cafes and bakeries. Budleigh Salterton’s beach ends at the estuary of the River Otter – a haven for wildlife and birds, with the UK’s first reintroduced beaver population. A short walk up the River Otter leads to Otter Mill – a working mill, which houses a food shop, a café/restaurant serving delicious home-made, locally sourced snacks and meals, and lays on music/entertainment events (subject to Covid restrictions).
Budleigh Salterton is also an ideal base for glorious walks on Woodbury Common and along the South West Coast Path (Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site). Exmouth and Exeter are both an easy car (or bus) journey away.
Weekend breaks run from Friday to Monday and mid-week break from Monday to Friday. (full weeks also available). NB for the weekend break 9-12 July 2021, no treatments, hot tub or sauna are available.
