This is a delightful, beautifully presented little cottage in the heart of Ilfracombe harbour. Everything you need was provided and the little bottles of Prosecco were a nice touch!

Beautifully positioned literally a minute walk from the harbour. Surrounded by cafes, pubs and shops. Lovely bright quirky cottage

Reviewed by Claire, 28th June 2019

Harbour Cottage was lovely - it is tastefully decorated and in a great location for the harbour area. The pubs opposite are really nice, however Saturday is quite noisy, not in a bad way - just people having a good time! I would expect this may disturb young children.

Beautiful cottage - so clean and so very well equipped! Would highly recommend

Harbour Cottage is a beautiful old property in a great location close to Ilfracombe Harbour. On arrival we found the house to be exceptionally clean and had all we needed for an enjoyable stay including a very thoughtful welcome pack. It was a great base for many of the north Devon beaches, walks and attractions and with so many fantastic eateries Read moreliterally on the doorstep, we struggled to decide which ones to go to. We had a wonderful holiday at Harbour Cottage and look forward to returning. Hide

This cottage comes with everything you will need for your stay well utilitised kitchen. Comfy beds. Great location. The house was warm and perfect

Reviewed by Graham, 12th April 2019

An excellent little cottage right in the middle of Ilfracombe. Only draw backs is that it does get a bit busy/noisy outside on a Friday and Saturday and you have to pay for parking but that is no issue really. We loved our stay though, great walks all around and super handy for all amenities.

Beautiful, spacious but yet equally cosy harbour cottage. Stones throw from the harbour which is working including life boat launches which we loved wathching with our son.

I can thoroughly recommend Harbour cottage. It was delightful! Clean comfortable. Even the dog was catered for with treats in a tin!! Also placed in Fore street, so all the fine eateries were on the doorstep.

The cottage is in a good location, car park is very close, Mr Lee was very helpful and we really enjoyed our first visit to Ilfracombe

Reviewed by Linda, 19th August 2018

The cottage is well situated for access to the harbour and all local amenities. If it's a quiet time you are looking for, it's not this cottage due to the proximity of the pubs and shops. Great if you have teenagers with you. The cottage itself is very pretty with everything you could need and more.

Reviewed by Catherine, 10th August 2018

A very convenient location, right next to the harbour. The flip side of this is the noise. Nearby pubs play loud music on Friday and Saturday nights till 1am. The pub opposite has noise most nights. It was so loud that we considered leaving after one night, as we had a young family. But if you plan to enjoy nights out yourself you might find it lesRead mores of a problem. Hide

Lovely cottage with large dining kitchen. All mod cons, but no outdoor space and although there is a washing machine, (which is not easily accessible in a cupboard), there is no tumble dryer. There were lots of extras, e.g games and books. The only real negative is the close proximity to three quite noisy pubs.
