Unique property located in a 19th century former-Wesleyan chapel, situated in the coastal village of Lee Bay, with the beach, coastal walks, and village pub all within walking distance.

This property is located in the small village of Lee Bay which enjoys a scenic spot on Devon’s northern coastline. Within walking distance of the property is a picturesque sand and shingle beach, which is surrounded by imposing cliffs to either side. Just three miles to the east of the property is the popular resort town of Ilfracombe, which has plenty of attractions for visitors to enjoy, including the town’s aquarium, Tunnels Beach, a bustling harbour, and Watermouth Castle which is now home to a family-friendly theme park. Meanwhile, a short drive to the west of the property brings guests to a magnificent stretch of coastline with a number of wonderful sandy beaches, including those at Woolacombe and Croyde.

 Access to this property is via a set of external stone stairs and guests are advised to take care at all times. On entering this attractive property, guests will discover the open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner, a welcoming space with a cosy, homely feel thanks to the exposed beams and stone fireplace with warming wood burner. There is no need for guests to go without contemporary creature comforts either, as there is a TV, DVD, and hi-fi with Bluetooth connection and iPod dock. The kitchen area is a pleasant, light space and is well-equipped with an oven, hob, microwave, fridge, and dishwasher, whilst there is access to a shared utility room where guests will find a fridge/freezer, washing machine and tumble dryer. Stairs lead to the galleried mezzanine bedroom with its double bed and en-suite bathroom with bath, separate shower, and WC.

Outside, the property benefits from a pretty garden with a decked patio area, BBQ, and garden furniture: the perfect space to enjoy the attractive surroundings. There is one roadside parking space provided for the property, just a little way down the hill, as well as the village car park within walking distance.

Reviewed by Andrew, 2nd June 2018

The cottage was lovely and had everything to hand. Not a large garden but adequate for a small dog.

Reviewed by Ian, 12th May 2018

This is a dog-friendly, pretty and well appointed cottage in a lovely location with good access to walks both inland and on the coast. For owners of larger dogs the garden area is small and there are no off-road walks in the immediate vicinity. The lovely old, dog-friendly pub down the road was in a lovely was good for lunch and afternoon tea but eRead moreating there in the evening was a disappointment due to poor food but there are plenty of better pub. .
