Fabulous location

  • 5 of 5

All about the location which, with afternoon sun, has to be one of the best situated properties in Lee. Lee itself charming and quiet though the possible development of the derelict hotel in the centre of the village may happen sometime. The cottage itself is spacious and comfortable with modern fitting out and has a wonderful conservatory allowing you to enjoy the view in all weathers. Communication and support from the owners was excellent. Great walks along the cliffs from the cottage. Highly recommended.

Lee Bay is not more than a 2 minute walk from Millfield. It is sheltered by dramatic cliffs and a beautiful place to play, build sandcastles and swim. It also has many interesting rock pools at low tide and is often fairly quiet even in the height of summer. Care should be taken when walking amongst the rocks as some can be very slippery but there is a footpath that takes you all the way to the sand when the tide is out. It is also ideal for kayaking and launching small pleasure craft.


A car is essential when visiting this property. There are very occasional bus services from Ilfracombe to Lee Bay (up to 4 times a day in summer).


Lee sits in between Ilfracombe and Mortehoe/Woolacombe. It's slightly quicker to drive to Ilfracombe through Higher Slade (under 10 minutes) but the walking distances on the coastal path are fairly similar, depending on the route you choose.

Further Details:

There is a charming pub in Lee village (The Grampus Inn) which serves lunch, afternoon tea and dinner, and a gift and craft shop too for ice creams. Food shopping, restaurants, etc. are a short drive away into Mortehoe, Woolacombe, Ilfracombe (Tesco, Lidl) and Braunton (Tesco).
