About the property

Cottage in Combe Martin, North Devon, England - Ideal Centre For Walkers, With The South West Coastal Path Just Yards Away

New on the market in 2014, Ebrington House is a lovely character cottage just 50 yards from Combe Martin beach. Originally built around 1650, it is a former pub and one of the oldest houses in the village. It has been completely refurbished and now sleeps 8 people in comfort and style. The property features lots of exposed beams, vaulted ceilings, two Inglenook fireplaces, and a wood-burning stove. However, as well as these character features, it has all the latest modern appliances, plus full gas central heating, with constant hot water and Wi-Fi.

Ebrington House is an ideal centre for walkers, as the South-West Coastal Path is just yards away. Among other local amenities, are two pubs (both serving food) a fish & chip shop, butcher, baker, pharmacist, two mini-markets, plus a selection of tourist shops, including two offering kayaks for hire. The house is located next door to the Combe Martin Museum and Tourist Information Office, which provides a comprehensive and fascinating insight into the rich and varied history of this village.

Within a mile or so is the Combe Martin Wildlife and Dinosaur Park, whilst the other way takes you to Watermouth Castle, a popular theme park for the younger members of the family. The seaside town of Ilfracombe is about four miles away, with its pretty harbour now featuring Damien Hirst’s statue of Verity. Heading further west brings you to the sweeping beaches of Woolacombe, Saunton and Croyde, all very popular for surfing.

Everything we hoped it would be

  • 5 of 5

Ebrington House was everything we hoped it would be. It was extremely clean and well equipped - very handy having a pub and shops within 2 minutes walk away. we had 5 adults and 2 teenagers, one of the adults being my elderly mother who used the one sitting room as her bedroom (using the bed settee which she said was very comfortable) and had an en-suite shower and toilet - as she has mobility problems this was a boon! the outside area was a little sun trap and we enjoyed sitting out in the evening with a glass of wine (when the sun allowed!!). I would recommend the 10 minute walk away to eat at the Pack of Cards pub just up the road and certainly the Sawmills Inn on the road to Illfracombe, the food was delicious and great service. I would certainly recommend this holiday home and if we decide to stay in Combe Martin again in the future will definitely stay at Ebrington.

Perfect and spotlessly clean!!!

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic property! Great parking, large kitchen, washer & dryer, fireplace/stove, plenty of room to spread out yet so cozy. It was off season and only 2 of us but I see returning with a group to take advantage of all the surrounding area has to offer as well as just staying put in Combe Martin and letting cares slip away. Thank you Tony & Jan for a wonderful stay!! It could not have been any better!

Fabulous property

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely welcoming ,relaxing house in a delightful village which was perfect in early September. Even if the house was filled to capacity it would still have room for everyone. Every piece of kitchen equipment you could possible desire. Comfortable furniture in the lounge. Very comfortable beds which is so important, quality pillows,bedding and towels. Odd cool evening house warmed up in no time with simple to use heating so I would be happy to stay there in the winter. Parking very easy outside the back garden gate. Garden area was charming and again well equipped. I noticed dogs were welcome and was slightly concerned as we're not dog people but there was absolutely no trace whatsoever of dogs, full marks to the cleaner.

Do try the Black Venus at Challacombe for a meal but arrive early, definitely well above the average. We would also recommend the surfing and boarding at Woolacombe where you can hire boards and wet suits - fabulous fun for young and old(ish). We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, even the teenager who managed to find lots of Pokemon. Hope very much to return sometime.

Overpriced

  • 1 of 5

Misleading information about garden and bedrooms no details about difficulty parking and situated in very run down village of Combe Martin. Very expensive and overall disappointing stay. Would not stay there again nor recommend it to anyone

Owner's Response: Well, it had to happen at some time - after three years of nothing but happy guests and tremendous reviews, we were bound to get somebody who didn't enjoy their holiday at Ebrington House for whatever reason - it just goes to show that you really can't please all of the people all of the time... We sincerely hope that anybody considering booking with us, pays far more attention to all the happy travellers who have posted 5-star reviews and returned to us time after time, than this particular one... Jan & Tony Davis. P.S. I just noticed that this is the same family that wrote "lovely holiday, cottage great, Thanks" in our visitors book !

Coast/Beach:

Combe Martin beach is only 50 yards away from the house, and its extensive rock pools give youngsters a wonderful opportunity for catching crabs. The bay itself provides safe swimming and kayaks can be also be hired. The nearby Hangman Hills are very popular with walkers and are part of the South West Coastal path, leading on towards Lynton and Lynmouth and beyond.

Travel:

Exeter airport is 60 miles away and about an hour and a quarter by car, whilst Bristol airport is 90 miles away and approximately two hours driving.

A car is recommended to take full advantage of this beautiful location.

Distances:

12 miles away and under half an hour's drive is Barnstaple, the main town of North Devon, with its historic Pannier Market and many independent shops.

The surfing beaches of Croyde Bay, Woolacombe, Saunton Sands and Putsborough are all within about 15 miles.

Combe Martin is on the edge of the Exmoor National Park, with its cliffs reaching to over 1,000 feet affording magnificent views of the coast.

Lynton and Lynmouth, the Valley of the Rocks and Watersmeet are also within about 15 miles.

Further Details:

Ebrington House is an ideal centre for walkers, as the South-West Coastal Path is just yards away. Among other local amenities, are two pubs (both serving food), a fish & chip shop, a deli, butcher, baker, pharmacist, two mini-markets, plus a selection of tourist shops, including one offering kayaks for hire.

The house is located next door to the Combe Martin Museum and Tourist Information Office, which provides a comprehensive and fascinating insight into the rich and varied history of this village.

Combe Martin is a small friendly village with two beaches and just been awarded the Blue flag for cleanliness. The small harbour is perfect for simply just messing about on the sea. The beaches have a wonderful collection of rock pools and caves which will keep the youngsters and Dad occupied for hours. One beach allows dogs all year, while the other restricts dogs for the summer months.

The Wildlife & Dinosaur Park situated at the top of the village offers a great day out for all the family, you can even swim with the sea-lions.

Nearby is the Watermouth Castle theme park, which is opposite picturesque Watermouth Harbour. Ilfracombe is just 4 miles along the coast and is a working fishing harbour and a fascinating place to visit.
