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

    Lovely cottage, well equipped. Large outside play area. Owner very helpful in getting internet fixed when it stopped working (through no fault of hers) and very friendly and approachable. Would highly recommend, best cottage we’ve stayed in for many years, possibly ever

    What a treat! We had a fantastic week in North Devon- lots to do and lovely beaches. Lucky with the weather which made the week even more enjoyable. The cottage was very comfortable and well equipped. It’s location was quiet and peaceful.

    Modern and clean accommodation overlooking a picturesque fishing lake. It is out of the way down narrow country lanes, but close to the key resorts of Woolacombe and Ilfrcombe.
