This picturesque seaside property has been beautifully decorated throughout to reflect its desirable harbour-side location.

Located in a spectacular position overlooking Ilfracombe harbour, this property is a short walk from the town’s many cafes, restaurants and boutiques. From this busy harbour, trips can be taken to Lundy Island, home to a colony of puffins and seals, along with several other boat trips that take in the beautiful scenery of this stretch of coastline. Venture a little further afield and you’ll find a selection of attractions including National Trust’s Arlington Court, Watermouth Castle and Combe Martin Wildlife and Dinosaur Park.

The ground floor of this stunning house is open-plan and full of coastal charm. The kitchen area features contemporary units, a tiled floor and a distinctly nautical theme. Here you will find an electric double oven and hob, fridge/freezer, wine chiller, microwave and dishwasher, while a separate utility room houses the washing machine and tumble dryer. Also on this floor is a shower room with WC. Dine at the large table or enjoy a morning coffee in the seating area beyond, where there is also a TV/DVD. Head upstairs and you’ll find the spacious lounge, which has pretty harbour views through original sash windows. Enjoy some peace and quiet away from the hustle and bustle below or make use of the TV/DVD available. On this floor is an elegant bedroom with king-size bed. On the second floor are the three remaining bedrooms, one double with sea views, one twin with sea views and one single with an additional pull-out bed, all of which have been decorated in a similar charming coastal theme. Also, on this floor is a bathroom with shower over bath and WC.

Outside, there is a terrace with seating and a BBQ overlooking the harbour accessed across the path, perfect for summer afternoons and ideal for catching the last of the day’s rays.

Ideal location overlooking the harbour the house is warm and very comfortable. If you want a rest then just sit on the raised patio and watch the boats and tide come and go.

Lovely property, furnished to a very high level and spotlessly clean. Loved the view, waking up to the sound of the sea is the best.

This house has everything. Firstly, the wonderful position overlooking Ilfracombe's pictureque harbour. The house is beautiful with windows overlooking the harbour, a huge downstairs living room, a lovely upstairs living room, comfortable bedrooms & bathrooms. We loved our terrace overlooking the harbour, had all our meals there. We had a wonderfulRead more family holiday, lucky with weather, the swimming was great (especially at Hele Bay and Woolacombe Bay), we had a fine meal at Sandy Cove Hotel. Hide

It is a great spot, location location location. Not ideal for elderly people who have trouble with stairs. The water pressure in the upstairs shower is a little low but the shower downstairs is good.

This cottage has the most amazing location. We traveled with our young children and its proximity to everything made our holiday flow with ease. The terrace was clean and gave us immense pleasure sitting there on a sunny morning with a coffee, sun went by 4pm on the terrace. Access to the cottage, is a little unusual as you have to walk through nexRead moret doors pub patio, which isnt pretty and can be tricky to pass on a sunny day when busy and you have a buggy. Hide

Everything about the cottage was excellent only problem we did have was purely due to having elderly relatives who could just about climb the stairs so need to be mindful of this when booking for disabled people as the stairs were quite steep.
