  • Situated directly on Ilfracombe Quay this cottage overlooks the harbour and is less than 50 steps from the harbour beach and ample shops, pubs and restaurants on your doorstep

  • Venture further afield to the spectacular golden sandy beaches of Woolacombe, Croyde and Saunton

 

Property code: 49673

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.
