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.

    Very clean, practicable cottage. Has everything you need, but furniture basic. Good value for the price. Lovely location. Have to carry luggage down lots of steps. Lovely play area, but not safely fenced off from the stream.

    Excellent cottage layout with Master bedroom separate side of cottage from bathroom and other bedrooms. Lovely outlook. On-suite lacks hanging hooks and storage/shelves for bathroom essentials. Mattress in Master bedroom very cheap and uncomfortable. Was soaking wet on our first night - cleaning problem? Main problem was that the weather was wet and cool and the central heating had been isolated off so we had to have the oven on to warm the place. The car park area is quite muddy and when wet gets your shoes mucky. Young owners are pleasant but could do with checking daily if guests are OK or there are any issues to be addressed. Narrow lanes which if access to West Down from the cottage is blocked can be quite harrowing for some drivers. All that said in better weather and with a little improvement the stay would be fine.

    Wonderful cottage in ideal location. Loads to do in the local area. Great space for the kids to run around in outside. Cottage was well equipped and clean. As we had a toddler with us we had to barricade the TV with the dining chairs so a minor comment to improve things even further would be think about a bit of baby/toddler proofing as well (e.g chain TV to wall). But this is a minor point and we did cope fine. There are no stairs to worry about inside the accommodation so that was a bonus! The Bagpuss DVD was also a godsend :-)

    Fantastic place to stay. Very clean. Very welcoming. More than 6 sets of cups, dishes etc would have been nice given how many guests could stay but this is the only criticism. The grounds were loved by the children. We would recommend it and would definitely stay again.

    Lovely spacious accommodation, very well equipped and with tasteful, thoughtful décor. Well kept grounds and lakes in a peaceful valley and near a lovely village. The children loved the grassy slope and the lovely play area. The owners were so friendly and helpful. Really near to Ilfracombe (10 mins) and Woolacombe and lots of other beaches and attractions. Brilliant place for a family holiday.
