This picturesque seaside property has been beautifully decorated throughout to reflect its desirable harbour-side location.

Sat right on the seafront overlooking Ilfracombe harbour, this cottage provides an unforgettable stay to its guests. Bright and airy in an open-plan style, this pretty three-storey property has been decorated to reflect its desirable harbour-side location. Located in a spectacular position just 115 metres from the beach and a range of restaurants and cafes, you’ll have no trouble relaxing here. After a day’s paddling, return to the house for an al fresco meal while sitting out on the terrace on a sunny afternoon.

 

Whether you’re out exploring the harbour or snuggled up on the sofa in the first-floor lounge enjoying the view, you’re never far from the sea here. The interiors embrace the calming blue and white tones of the ocean and remind you of what’s just outside your door. The kitchen-diner has a distinctly nautical theme, and even has comfortable seating in front of the electric fire for you to retire to after a fulfilling meal. After a long day of exploring, head to the four-poster bed with rustic furniture and fall into a peaceful slumber, ready for the next day of activities that lies ahead.

 

Walk just 160 metres to visit Verity, Damien Hirst’s iconic sculpture, at the end of the harbour before taking a boat trip to wildlife-rich Lundy Island to spot its colonies of puffins and seals. If you’d rather stay on land, the Chapel of St Nicholas just metres from the property is steeped in history, while children will love the aquarium (130 metres) and Watermouth Castle (3 miles). For a larger beach, make sure you visit Woolacombe (8 miles), or visit the National Trust’s Arlington Court (11 miles) for a peaceful walk around the grounds.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Board a boat trip from the harbour, first deciding whether you’d prefer a guided tour of the coast or a trip to Lundy Island. Treat young children to an afternoon of fun on the rides at Watermouth Castle (3 miles), where there’s lots to keep adults entertained too. Make sure to take your camera on a visit to the Combe Martin Wildlife and Dinosaur Park (6.5 miles), where you can spend the morning spotting the different animals, then after lunch marvel at the animatronic dinosaurs.

Ideal location overlooking the harbour the house is warm and very comfortable. If you want a rest then just sit on the raised patio and watch the boats and tide come and go.

Lovely property, furnished to a very high level and spotlessly clean. Loved the view, waking up to the sound of the sea is the best.

It is a great spot, location location location. Not ideal for elderly people who have trouble with stairs. The water pressure in the upstairs shower is a little low but the shower downstairs is good.

This cottage has the most amazing location. We traveled with our young children and its proximity to everything made our holiday flow with ease. The terrace was clean and gave us immense pleasure sitting there on a sunny morning with a coffee, sun went by 4pm on the terrace. Access to the cottage, is a little unusual as you have to walk through nexRead moret doors pub patio, which isnt pretty and can be tricky to pass on a sunny day when busy and you have a buggy. Hide

Everything about the cottage was excellent only problem we did have was purely due to having elderly relatives who could just about climb the stairs so need to be mindful of this when booking for disabled people as the stairs were quite steep.
