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 please visit the Government website to purchase a rod fishing licence and please bring your own rods. Shop and pub 1 mile.

    We had the perfect holiday whilst staying in Duror Cottage. The cottage itself was beautifully located and peaceful. The cottage was very clean and tidy and had everything to offer for a family holiday. The location of the play area was perfect for our four children who made the most of the area. Despite not having the best weather all week, we found plenty to do in the surrounding areas. Ilfracombe and Woolacombe were both short car rides away from this accommodation. We could not recommend this cottage enough as we felt it was good value for money and very comfortable.
