This holiday property is located in the stunning North Devon countryside on a complex, with shared landscaped grounds to explore.

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, no licence is required, however please bring your own rods. Shop and pub 1 mile.

    A well run and classy cottage in a modernised complex, in the heart of north Devon, Royd Cottage provided everything we wanted (apart from a cafetiere; we borrowed one from relatives). We would stay again.

    Very welcoming and accommodating hosts (let us use their BBQ!). We loved the quiet rural location and our daughter settled in to the cottage straight away which is high praise indeed. The on site playground was great and there was enough room for my wife to do a run every morning in the lovely garden. We had a lovely week.

    We loved staying at Royd Cottage. It is situated in a peaceful secluded village in beautiful North Devon countryside. It is 20 minutes one way to the white sandy beaches of Woolacombe, Ilfracombe and Croyde, and 20 minutes the other way to Barnstaple. There is something to keep everyone entertained. When we arrived we were met by a lovely friendly lady called Janine who made us feel very welcome. We were pleasantly surprised by how spacious the cottage was. It is nicely decorated and very homely. Also great value for money! We really enjoyed our stay and just wish it could have been longer. We would definitely recommend this as a great getaway for both families or couples.
