Consider your staycation sorted

Chloe Best

Not only does she have a beautiful London residence, but Location, Location, Location star Kirstie Allsopp also has a fabulous holiday home in Devon. The six-bedroom Meadowgate Cottage has featured in Kirstie's Homemade Home and Kirstie's Handmade Britain on Channel 4, and is now bookable on Classic Cottages for holidays starting on or after 4 July. Unsurprisingly, it's booking up fast as Brits start their hunt for a summer staycation, and from its beautifully rustic design to its sheer size, here's why it's so popular...

An ideal base for a family staycation, the property sleeps 14 people and is located just a few minutes away from Welcombe Mouth in Devon. Kirstie has lovingly restored the property and her personal sense of style is visible throughout, with her own black and gold wallpaper in the downstairs washroom, eclectic furnishings and her own homemade crafts.

The ground floor boasts two sitting rooms, a huge kitchen and dining room with an AGA, a utility room and WC, while there are three double bedrooms and two twin bedrooms (one of which has bunk beds), a bathroom and shower room on the ground floor. There is even a ground floor annexe with a games room featuring a foosball table and a ping pong table that will keep the family entertained during your stay. The sixth bedroom is separate from the main house and sits above the games room.

The property, called Meadowgate Cottage, has six bedrooms

Kirstie and her family often visit Meadowgate during the summer, but rents it out when it isn't in use – and it is understandably very popular. But there is still availability during the summer holidays in July and August, a time where guests can take advantage of the garden – which is said to be a sun-trap – for barbecues and al fresco dinners. Meanwhile, a pathway leads down to the local beach, and there is a "great pub" just up the road. What more could you want?
