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).

A lovely little cottage, full of character, very well equipped and extremely comfortable. Excellent location and parking in adjacent public car park no problem. Very dog friendly and although no outside area, plenty of opportunity to exercise the dog.

Lovely, quirky cottage to stay in. When it rained you didnt mind being stuck in. Lots of pubs and restaurants to visit and so close to harbour too. Woolacombe beach is a short drive away too!

Cottage is in a great location. Kitchen very well equipped - tin foil/washing up liquid/all pots and pans imaginable provided. Only downside is that there is no garden/outside space but this doesnt matter too much as you are less than 5 minutes away from the harbour beach which allows dogs on.

Absolutely fantastic location, literally a stones throw from Ilfracombe harbour. Quirky layout with everything you need spread across the 1st and 2nd floors. Everything you need for your holiday included in the property with 2 pubs straight across the road (no excessive noise from them though) and another just around the corner. We'll be back againRead more next year. Hide

Verity Cottage is beautiful, well equipped, very comfy beds. There are a lot of stairs so maybe not suitable for people with mobility issues. Great location close to the harbour and pubs on the doorstep. Would definitely stay there again

This place isnt suitable for older people or young children due to the many steep steps , and the noise from the two pubs opposite, and the car park behind , we didnt get much sleep As this place is noisy I suggest double glazing
