Dimmet is a 70s styled, 2 bedroomed, beach bungalow based on the outskirts of the village of Braunton, in North Devon. Within walking distance of the village and its amenities and an easy 5 minute drive from the iconic beach at Saunton Sands, Dimmet is well-placed to provide your relaxing family holiday.
Holiday home layout
Dimmet has two bedrooms, a large kitchen and lounge and newly-fitted bathroom with bath and shower over. We have a mains gas boiler providing central heating and water, as well as a log burner in the lounge. We also have a garage – convenient for storage of bikes, wetsuits, surf boards and the like. The garden is enclosed and South facing and you can hear the sound of the sea whilst sitting eating lunch on the patio.
A roomy modern kitchen with a Rangemaster cooker (gas hob, electric ovens), large fridge/freezer, washer (tumble-drier in garage) and dishwasher. Fully equipped with all cutlery, crockery and cooking utensils – you will find everything you need to cook your gourmet delights whilst on holiday. Kettle, coffee machine and toaster are also provided for those essential drinks and snacks. The kitchen table seats 6 comfortably.
The lounge is a large room with the log burner central to the room – decorated in 1970’s style, we have comfy seating for 6 and bean bags and cushions. We have a large TV and DVD, and in keeping with our 1970s theme, you’ll find boxsets of series from the era like To The Manor Born, The Good Life, The Professionals, Tales of the Unexpected – as well as a selection of LP’s to bop along to! We also have a number of games and books to ensure that you can have some great competitive games with the rest of the family whilst on holiday. One of the sofas can be used a single bed for an extra guest if required (bookable by arrangement)
The main bedroom is at the back of the bungalow and faces the rear garden. Furnished with a genuine 1970s bedstead and 1970s vintage wallpaper, it really is a step back in time, but your sleep experience is bang up to date with a kingsize luxury mattresses made by Naturalmat in Devon. Both the bedrooms have built in cupboards and draw space. This bedroom also has a small TV on the wall. Inside the wardrobes, you will find some genuine 1970s dressing up clothes – or why not scour the charity shops and vintage stores and bring your own – 1970s theme parties are so easy at Dimmet!
The second bedroom is located at the front of the bungalow and has two single beds, which can be zipped and linked to form a superking double (please request at the time of booking). Again, feature vintage wallpaper and a built in cupboard mean that you will have plenty of storage for your holiday wardrobe.
The bathroom is located at the end of the central hall and has a newly fitted Roca suite and a bath with shower over. We provide shower gel and shampoo from a company called 100 Acres, which is organic and we make our own soap from Shea butter, coconut oil and the like – all very natural and good for your skin. We provide your bathroom towels but please bring your beach towels with you.
The garden was planted by Andrew’s Granny and has a number of interesting plants and a lovely piece of lawn for playing games on. There is a patio directly behind the house with garden furniture. We also provide a barbecue and utensils for your use.
We have a single garage which houses the tumble-drier and you are welcome to use it to store your belongings whilst you are staying with us – surf boards, bikes, games will all be safely stored until you need them.
We are on a quiet road so you can park outside Dimmet on the road, or we have private parking on the drive in front of the garage.
