Great base for a family holiday with lake fishing and children’s play area on site and many attractions to visit.

Fishing lakes and children’s play area

Lower Aylescott Cottages (refs 29396, 29490, 29491, 29607, 30032 and UKC162) are located just outside the village of West Down, in the stunning North Devon countryside. The cottages are ideal for couples and smaller parties during the quieter months and are well suited for families during the school holidays. The extensive well-maintained grounds benefit from two fishing lakes and a children’s play area. There are walks around the grounds as well as some local footpaths. Lower Aylescott Cottages are all well-equipped and furnished to a good standard. The nearby village has a pub and local shop. The properties are very well-located to explore all North Devon has to offer. The renowned beach at Woolacombe is a short distance away, as well as the famous surfing beach at Croyde. For something a bit more rugged, head out to Crow Point and the sand dunes of Braunton Burrows, a Site of Special Scientific Interest. The nearest large town is the seaside resort of Ilfracombe. Enjoy an ice cream down at the harbour and see the Damian Hirst sculpture at the harbour entrance called Verity. There is also the Tunnels Beach and the Landmark Theatre, as well as a good range of shops and restaurants. Other local places of interest include Combe Martin Wildlife and Dinosaur Park, Watermouth Castle and the Lynton to Lynmouth funicular railway, which all make for a good day out. Exmoor is a short distance away and on a clear day the views can be spectacular. There are National Trust properties at Arlington and Knightshayes, and the RHS gardens at Rosemoor and Great Torrington. On site fishing is available. Shop and pub 1 mile.

    The cottage was in a perfect location, setting gorgeous, clean and welcoming (apart from rusty shower holders, which spoilt the lovely effect of bathrooms). The only thing that would make me want to stay again, is if the mattresses were replaced on the beds, myself and my husband were both in a lot of pain/discomfort from the double mattress which was awful, no support. I ended up sleeping separate from my husband all holiday, switching between the other twins bedrooms, which was far from ideal, and sadly they were only a fraction more comfortable. Please invest in some decent mattresses, the location will always be amazing but if you are in pain whilst on holiday its no fun!

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; We are pleased you enjoyed the location and the setting of Lake View Cottage and we have taken your comments on board to improve the overall experience for our guests. The double bedroom has been upgraded to a memory foam mattress which we hope will be to our guests' liking. The twin bedrooms are also being upgraded with new mattresses and the many older items in the cottage have been replaced. It is disappointing that you did not mention these points during your stay having spoken to us at numerous times over the week. We would have tried to resolve things for you immediately. However, we thank you for bringing things to our attention now and hopefully look forward to welcoming you back to Lower Aylescott Cottages in the future.

    This is a nice cottage in a good, quiet country location within easy distance of the beeches and other main villages in North Devon. Good local pub restaurant in West Down. The only down side is that the beds could do with replacement!!!!! Otherwise very good.

    Lovely cottage in a peaceful location. Play area was great for the children. Handy for both Woolacombe and Ilfracombe as well as much of north Devon! Owners on hand for any questions or maintenance issues (we had a light bulb go).

    Found the property top class.The views over the lake were stunning and the fishing was great,My little granddaughter had a great time and caught a load of fish.It is also well positioned to get to most places of interest. The owners are brilliant and so helpful you almost feel part of the family. I fully recommend this complex of properties for a great holiday.

    Fantastic week spent here with my wife and my in laws. Great location, about 5 miles from the coastal towns of Ilfracombe and Woolacombe. Last couple of hundred yards to the cottage are a little narrow, but once you know them, you'll be fine. One can walk to the local shop, it's about a mile, but takes 15 minutes. Just the first bit hurts, as it's steep! Bungalow was situated on to top of the hill, overlooking the main lake and the play fields. Short walk down to the lakes, approx. 50 yards. Both lakes held fish, although catching the larger carp was challenging. Mainly due to the fact that the lakes are extremely well stocked with small roach, dace and bream. Fished at least once every, and always catching plenty of smaller fish. Managed one carp of around 10lb. There are bigger ones in there, as you can see them. But getting past the small ones and coaxing the bigger ones out of the lily pads proved a test! Lakes may benefit by reducing some of the smaller stock, and adding a few more carp and tench to 3lb. Just a thought. All rooms were well laid out, and had more than satisfactory furnishings. Separate bathroom to serve the two rooms on one side is excellent. En-suite served the master bedroom. Kitchen and dining area was again, more than adequate. The cottage was clean and tidy on arrival. Owners more than helpful. Couldn't think of anything that would be needed that isn't already there. Patio area over looked the lakes. Sat outside on a few occasions, although the weather wasn't best suited to outside eating. It was nice to watch the buzzard at work, martialling his patch. The deer's also made several appearances behind the lake. Plenty of wild birds too. Not sure if a bird table feeding area would enhance the scene. Or if it would increase pigeons??? One area that would benefit from a slight improvement would be the patio equipment. Although we only spent short times on the aluminium seats, they are not the comfiest! Plus this cottage was for 6. So a larger single table, with chairs would be more suitable. That's about the only "fault" I could find. All in all, an excellent holiday in an excellent setting. I'd certainly go again, as would the in-laws.

    The family who look after the properties were more than supportive!! Cottage was set in an amazing location and a short drive from sooo many lovely places. There are a number of steps down to the lake view cottage so you just need to bear that in mind.
