This picturesque property sits nestled in amongst other properties overlooking the harbour. Combining a contemporary style with period features, it offers a superb seaside home all year round.

Nestled amongst a terrace of properties overlooking Ilfracombe Harbour on the North Devon coast, this cottage is a great place for families to stay. Standing outside the cottage, you will see Damien Hirst's domineering statue ‘Verity' standing guard over the harbour. Ilfracombe is a typical seaside town with shops, cafes and restaurants lining the road, but if you prefer to soak up the tranquillity of the coast and are keen walkers, the South West Coast Path is only a few hundred metres from your door.

This cottage is a blend of traditional features, such as exposed beams and stone fireplaces, and clean, contemporary decor, which creates a sense of comfort throughout. On the ground floor, you will find the well-equipped modern kitchen/diner and the cosy lounge with its log-effect electric fire. On the second floor is the king-size bedroom and lovely family bathroom, whilst the twin and bunk bedrooms are up a further staircase on the third floor with a shower room and WC. All the bedrooms are a good size and are light and airy. Outside, there is a step up from the landing to a small rooftop balcony offering glimpses of the harbour, which is a great place for a morning coffee.

Being so close to the centre, you will soon sense that Ilfracombe is a hive of activity with boat trips from the harbour, the Victorian Tunnels Beaches, the High Street and a cinema and theatre. For surfers, North Devon's finest surfing beaches such as Woolacombe, Putsborough and Saunton are all within 11 miles. Kids, both young and old, will love quirky attractions such as Combe Martin Wildlife and Dinosaur Park (7 miles) and Watermouth Castle (3 miles). Exmoor National Park is also close by with a wealth of walks and tearooms on offer.

Gorgeous cottage, tucked away in the harbour but ideally situated. Easily accessible & plenty of parking, but ensure you get a parking permit! Very clean, comfy & warm, not far from the pubs which had great food available, George & Dragon, Ship & Pilot were on our doorstep as it was Christmas, raining non-stop and not much to do!

Fantastic location. Just tucked back enough to be really quiet but you step outside and on the beautiful harbour. Well equipped, clean, spacious and comfortable cottage. You can walk into town, fabulous local walks. Lovely pubs and restaurants. Thank you to the hosts for the kind gesture in the fridge too!

Lovely cottage and well equipped. Lots of information left for us. Great location and really enjoyed Ilfracombe and being near the harbour was great. There is no actual view from the cottage but we knew that. There was great carry outs noticeable the burger bar run nearby who did very upmarket burgers in my mind. Ilfracombe very short of restaurantRead mores someone needs to open a really good one on or near the harbour. Hide

Sandy Lane in Ilfracombe was a lovely cottage right on the harbour front. It was cosy and suited our needs well. We would recommend this place to friends and family.

The cottage is perfect if you want an easy location. It's not a 'fancy' place and some of the rooms (bathroom) are a bit outdated, but it's a perfect spot for enjoying the local area. We had great weather so we didn't need to be inside too much, so it was perfect for us to rest in the evenings. It's right by the harbour so you can pop in and out asRead more you need and enjoy local food etc without a long journey home. Definitely recommend, but take cleaning products with you as they're not provided! Hide

We had a lovely stay at Sandy Lane. The house was well equipped and suited our needs. It's in a beautiful location with some great walks, fab beaches and excellent pubs and restaurants close by. A lovely bottle of wine welcomed us and the basket containing a towel and throw for the dog was a lovely touch. Would highly recommend.

Lovely stay in Sandy Lane. Very clean and comfortable. This was our second visit here. I did note that the Amusement Arcade next door is being refurbished and wondered how much noise this would create once open to the public. That's said, we would still stay here again.

Lovely cottage with all you want, perfect location in the harbour, walking distance to all and locals are very friendly. Wonderful accomodating guests, Clare and Paul. Unfortunately, the only downside, is the continious loud droning of some equipment (industrial fridge/boiler) from next door property/pub, that keeps you awake at night. But other thRead morean that, worth a stay here. Thank you. Hide
