Lovingly renovated by the owners in 2017, this charming cottage is set 500m from Hele Bay, a small sheltered cove in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Jewel cottage looks out down the valley towards the sea and provides a great base for a truly memorable North Devon holiday. Keen ramblers can readily access the South West Coast Path that meanders along the stunning and rugged coastline to Exmoor, in one direction, and towards the area's wonderful golden sandy beaches in the other. 

The bustling harbour town of Ilfracombe is close by and which boasts Damien Hirst's famous sculpture, 'Verity'.  Ilfracombe has a good selection of cafes, pubs and excellent restaurants from which to choose. Fishing trips and coastal cruises, including to the wildlife haven of Lundy Island depart from its harbour. 

Jewel cottage provides guests with an attractive kitchen benefitting from a slate floor and granite worktops. The distinctive AGA is the main feature of the room and is handy if you want to boil a kettle for a cup of tea or cook an English breakfast. There is also an electric cooker, Belfast sink and the kitchen is well equipped. The living room has comfy seating in front of a gas effect woodburner and smart TV. The dining room is on the other side of the kitchen and has a wooden floor, a pine dresser and table for six. Access outside to the enclosed garden is from either the dining room or the door just by the kitchen. The cottage garden is sure to prove a popular place to sit out and relax, with its planted borders and fruit trees. A barbecue is provided so ‘al fresco’ meals may well feature during your holiday. 

Upstairs are three bedrooms. The cottage has two King-size beds (one of which can be made into a Twin – Please request at time of booking) and a third Twin bedroom. All are stylishly decorated and are bright and welcoming with painted white ceiling cladding and down lighters.

Welcoming, spacious & very clean accommodation with some thoughtful touches. Good wifi (important for the teenager!) and quiet location. Pretty sitting area outside that catches the sun all day. Beach is a 6min walk, grey sand like many on the north Devon coast. Cottage is well-placed for the main road but you don't hear it from the garden. Tea room, brewery & convenience store within a few minutes stroll. Lots of walking fairly locally. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Mrs B,

We absolutely loved our stay at Jewel Cottage. It felt so homely, and there was plenty of space for our family of 5 (which includes two teenagers who like their own space!) The garden area was lovely, and we enjoyed watching the cows grazing in the hillside above the property. The cottage location was superb for exploring the North Devon area, with only a 5 minute walk to the Hele Bay beach, which also had access to the coastal path which you could take into Ilfracombe, offering stunning views. As soon as we walked into the property, we knew we would love our stay, and would definitely book Jewel Cottage again in the future!

Mr S,

Jewel cottage lives up to its name. Good sized rooms, well equipped, comfortable beds. Good-sized attractive lawned Garden an added bonus. Plenty of wonderful walks and a beach just a few minutes away. Recommend.

Mrs L,

Jewel Cottage is a real gem! Great location, well equipped and beautifully clean. An ideal base for exploring the local area and comfortable and cosy accommodation to come ‘home’ to at the end of a day out exploring.

Miss G,
