This property is part of our Welcome Cottages collection

A carefully curated collection of properties that offer high quality, good value accommodation in great locations across the UK, Ireland, France and Italy


A great base for a seaside holiday, with a nearby holiday park with facilities, including a swimming pool.

The Cottage, a cosy hideaway located in the heart of the coastal town of Ilfracombe, was reputedly part of Ilfracombe’s zoo. Now, this detached cottage, adjacent to the owners’ home, makes an ideal base from which to explore this great part of north Devon. The comfortable interior is complemented by a small private courtyard area, and guests also have the added benefit of the facilities at Ilfracombe Holiday Park, located just opposite the property. Here, guests will have full access to the swimming pool (£2.50), restaurant, entertainment and other facilities (charges apply). A real bonus!
Located within walking distance of Ilfracombe’s pretty harbour and attractions, including Damien Hirst’s ’Verity’, which stands guard over the harbour entrance. Some of these attractions and sights include the Victorian Tunnels Beaches, Combe Martin Wildlife and Dinosaur Park, Watermouth Castle and the Lynton to Lynmouth cliff railway. At Croyde and Woolacombe, you will find some of the best and cleanest surf beaches in the country, as well as many smaller coves and bays. 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 at Great Torrington. Beach ¾ mile. Shop 100 yards, pub and restaurant 50 yards.

    Cottage very nice and comfy, nice surprize to have a welcome pack which contained lots of leaflets of places of interest also tea, coffee, sugar,biscuits, jam and scones, in the fridge there was another surprize of milk, orange juice and clotted cream. Owner came to make herself known to me and offered advice on where to go to walk my dogs and other places of interest. Would certainly stay at the cottage again.

    Although the lady who owns the cottage is very friendly, this was definitely not our cup of tea. We found the cottage to be cramped and have minimal cutlery, towels, bedding, etc. But the worst thing from our perspective is that we found it to be very noisy as it is situated on a very busy A road. Other visitors going there probably have a different perspective and different needs. Next time we will have to look for a quieter place!

    thoroughly enjoyed our time at the cottage. Claire was extremely helpful and left some food for us to enjoy when we arrived which was very much appreciated. We would definitely stay there again, the only down side was the steep hill we had to climb to get from Ilfracombe and back. However, the bus stop was right outside the cottage which was a great help. Couldn't find any problems and the place was immaculate and very well stocked for all our needs. Thank you
