This beautifully presented coastal cottage boasts a lovely walled garden, is perfectly positioned with a beach and selection of amenities nearby, and provides a great base for couples and families.

The village boasts a pretty harbour and sheltered sandy bay with a 17th century inn, post office, bakery and a few small shops. From here the South West Coast Path also offers walks with breath-taking views and enthusiastic walkers can head out towards the expansive surfing beaches of Saunton, Croyde and Woolacombe on foot. A short drive away, the traditional Victorian seaside town of Ilfracombe offers a wealth of shops, pubs and restaurants as well as traditional amusement arcades, cinema, Landmark Theatre and the opportunity to see Damien Hirst’s ‘Verity’.

Stepping into the characterful property with split levels throughout, a small hallway leads through to a useful ground floor shower room with WC. This provides a perfect place to clean up after a day at the beach. From here a couple of steps down takes you through to a fantastically spacious yet cosy lounge, where soft leather sofas sit in front of a Smart TV with DVD, and the lovely fireplace is fitted with a warming wood burner effect electric fire. Another small flight of steps then takes you up and into the kitchen/diner, this is well-equipped and offers an electric oven and gas hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and washing machine. Head upstairs and onto the first floor you will then find yourself amongst the pretty bedrooms, which include a beautifully appointed king-size and a twin bedroom. The final flight of steps leads up to the second floor and here another spacious king-size bedroom sits next to a lovely family bathroom with hand-held shower over bath, separate shower and WC.

We stayed with our grown up children and their partners. The cottage was exactly as expected and had no hidden surprises that were negative in nature. It is tastefully furnished and well maintained.

We all loved the cottage. The garden is lovely and we enjoyed playing and sitting in the sun. Inside it is comfortable, well appointed and spacious. It suited all 3 generations. The location is good too as not right in the hub but only 5-10 mins walk away with a handy corner shop opposite.

Delightful cottage. Great mix of character charm & mod cons. Loved the huge walk in shower & fridge freezer & the electric wood burner gave a lovely cosy ambiance to the lounge.

The cottage Is lovely, situated in the hub of the village however with a walled private garden which is super for dogs. The cottage is well thought out with equipment, welcoming gifts and home comforts. For a holiday home there is a real calm soul to the property which is very relaxing.
