Surfing beaches, championship golf courses, river and sea fishing, sailing, walking, cycling, climbing, coasteering, horse riding, shooting, kite surfing, scuba diving...the list goes on and on. Then again, you can ignore all these and just chill. In a quiet, secluded cove, in a cosy country pub or in a modern bar overlooking the bobbing yachts in the harbour. Outside: Small yard at back with bench seats and decked area. Utility Room: Dining room, in the theme of a beach hut. Sit having your breakfast and pretend you are on the beach Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Maid service: Linen included, but not bath towels ,Cottage cleaned every changeover, normally on Saturdays

We enjoyed two perfect nights in this quaint fisherman's cottage, it was clean, warm and cosy. The location was fab for enjoying a walk around the harbour or the other beautiful sights that ilfracombe has to offer. We love this part of Devon plenty of walks and sea was great to get back and relax in this lovely cottage we even enjoyed a few drinks in the local pub opposite everyone was so friendly.
