A picturesque property in a pretty street close to the centre of the town and harbour. Contemporary style yet retaining character features providing a superb retreat for families or couples all year round.
Tucked in a pretty street in the centre of Ilfracombe, this cottage provides an unforgettable stay to guests. Cosy and comfortable with plenty of coastal touches, this picturesque three-floor property is an opportunity to embrace life amongst the locals in this traditional fishing town. Wake up after a peaceful slumber and head up to the top floor for breakfast in the kitchen diner, looking out onto the street to watch the town come to life over your morning coffee.
As soon as you walk into the cottage, you’ll feel part of this seaside resort thanks to the pretty nautical touches dotted throughout. The interiors are calming and neutral, with a wood burner effect electric fire in the lounge to curl up in front of after a long day of walking. Make breakfast in the bright open-plan kitchen diner, ready to prepare you for the day, or make a light meal for supper before popping down to the middle floor to bed. It’s no problem that there’s no outside space at the property since you’re in the heart of Ilfracombe with access to walks along the South West Coast Path just 325 metres from your door.
Head just 500 metres through the town to Ilfracombe Harbour, where you’ll find Damien Hirst’s iconic sculpture Verity looking out over the Bristol Channel. You can also take a wildlife boat trip from the harbour to Lundy Island, where you may spot puffins, seals or even a pod of dolphins. If you don’t fancy cooking, there are many cafes and restaurants to choose from, so the family won’t go hungry. If it’s beautiful sands you’re after, nip to the 3-mile long beach at Woolacombe (8 miles).
Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.
Please note there is a refundable £50 security deposit for this property payable closer to the start of your holiday.
