This picturesque property sits overlooking the harbour and has been wonderfully restored combining a contemporary style with period features, creating a idyllic retreat for all the family as well as couples all year round.

Overlooking Ilfracombe harbour and under 100 metres from the beach, this cottage promises an idyllic retreat for families and couples alike. Contemporary and cosy with restored period features, this property is the perfect opportunity to embrace life by the sea in a beautiful part of North Devon. Wake up and sit in the comfortable chairs in the master bedroom and look out of the bay window across the harbour, taking in the superb views and planning your day of exploration ahead.

Whether you’re curled up on the sofa in the lounge area in front of the wood burner effect electric fire or off seeing Damien Hirst’s sculpture Verity at the harbour (485 metres), there’s something for everyone here. The exposed beams and brickwork in the cottage paired with pretty coastal touches makes it a calming and relaxing place to come back to after walking around the town. A spacious kitchen diner makes it a pleasure to eat dinner around the table, while the spiral staircase up to the first floor has a quaint low ceiling that leads on to the bathroom so you can enjoy a soothing shower at the end of the day.

Walk just 325 metres along the harbour to the Lundy Booking Office and catch a boat to Lundy Island, where you may spot puffins, seals and maybe even a pod of dolphins. If you prefer to stay on land, pop next door to the aquarium. When it’s time to stop for lunch, you’ll have plenty of cafes and restaurants to choose from. Further afield, Woolacombe (8 miles) boasts a 3-mile stretch of sands, while Combe Martin Dinosaur Park (7 miles) is a hit with kids.

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

A charming cottage facing onto the harbour, in a good location to walk around the town or the harbour area. It is also a great location for walking our dog on the Hillsborough hill and open spaces. The house is on three floors with quite a narrow staircase that might be a challenge for people with mobility issues.

Lovely holiday. So close to all amenities and walks.

Reviewed by raymond 7th June 2019

The cottage is in an ideal place next to the lifeboat station and 500yds. from the high street and has great views of the harbour. Be aware that parking during the day,8am - 6pm outside the cottage car park needs a ticket, the permit is for longstay only 100yds a way. Although we had dreadful weather (almost continual rain) we would stay there agaiRead moren. The owner was very friendly and the welcome pack of wine and flowers was a nice touch. Hide
