About Alex

We relocated to Devon Sept 2014 to live by the sea and bring our children up in a wonderful rural location. Our favourite hobbies include going to the beach, body boarding, surfing, sand tobogganing and rock pooling. Our best holidays have been camping with family and friends. When I turned 40 a friend and I decided to enter some local triathlons to help us get fit. Loved the open water swimming and cycling, less keen on the running!

Alex purchased this cottage in 2015

Why Alex chose Ilfracombe

Beautiful rural location, yet so close to the sea. Strawfields has two cottages, Hayloft and Owl Barn. Across the fields over the stream in its own private field we also have a very small rustic campsite. Just a perfect place for children to play, enjoy and explore the outdoors, with trampolines, tree swings and slides. The beaches are amazing and there is something for everyone. Stunning coastal path walks, dog friendly beaches, caves and coves for rock pooling, loads of activities to do and attractions to visit. We have pygmy goats. Kune Kune pigs, chickens and 2 kittens and one very friendly dog called Inca.

What makes this cottage unique

We fell in love with the space, the views and the freedom for the children to play outdoors safely.
