Family Living

Kohtalo in Combe Martin is a luxurious, modern holiday home that makes a welcoming family escape

16 August 2021

Constructed from local materials, this luxury self-catering home close to the North Devon coast has been thoughtfully designed. The field in which the house now sits was handed down through the family – it used to be where the owner’s mother grew fruit and vegetables, and the owner’s parents lived opposite Kohtalo.

Cedar-clad with a zinc roof, the property has an airy, modern feel. Sumptuous furnishings, together with various pieces of art and accessories, soften and warm up the interior.

The contemporary kitchen space has a double oven, American fridge-freezer, boiling water tap and wine fridge, along with a separate utility room. Spanning the length of the open-plan living and dining room are large, gliding doors leading out onto the patio and garden.

The master bedroom is on the ground floor, with a super king-size bed, dressing room, en suite with a roll-top bath and separate shower, and gliding doors leading onto the patio.

There are two further bedrooms with king-size beds (one on the ground floor and one on the first floor), along with a zip-and-link bedroom on the first floor. A family shower room is also on the ground floor, and another with a bath and walk-in shower on the first floor.

Outside there is a fire pit and hot tub – the perfect spot to soak up the rural views.
