The cottage has access to well-maintained grounds, which benefit from two fishing lakes and a children’s play area.

Lower Aylescott Cottages (refs 29396, 29490, 29491, 29607 and 30032) 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 only problem we had was having to book in on a Friday. This appears to be the worst day of the week for traffic. A normal 3 to 4 hour journey took nearly 7 hours. We also spoke to other people who said they had the same problem. We happen to know that travelling on a Saturday is not as bad, or a mid week to mid week booking is even better regarding traffic.

    Peaceful location. A great place for a quite getaway. Friendly owners, nothing too much trouble.

    A great value for money cottage, in a quiet area, but still close to all the attractions. Plenty of good walks around quiet country lanes & not too far from the coast for the coastal path. For us townies, driving down the narrow lanes can be quite hair raising.
