The property

Imposing Grade II listed house set in the popular seaside resort of Ilfracombe. A host of activities await your visit whether your choice is lazing on sandy beaches, hiking across National Parks or enjoying the sights over tantalizing lunches or cream teas. Walk across to the Tunnels Beaches, a fascinating Victorian experience where you walk through hand carved tunnels and out to the rugged landscape, tidal pool and rock pools for all to enjoy. There is a pretty harbour area for relaxing over lunch, where Damien Hirst’s ‘Verity’ stands magnificently at the harbour entrance or hop on a boat trip along the North Devon coastline, take your camera and see if you can spot any seals, or visit the wildlife haven of Lundy Island. A wide assortment of pubs and restaurants ensure every taste bud is catered for and a Devon Cream Tea is a must! Plenty of quirky gift shops and evening entertainment for the young and young at heart means that there is plenty to suit every age group. Walkers and cyclists will adore the Exmoor National Park, within easy driving distance it’s a wonderful day out, with miles of rolling landscape, pack a picnic or stop at a country pub for lunch. For surfing enthusiasts, Woolacombe, Saunton and Croyde are nearby and offer miles of sandy beaches and white waves, or step back in time at Clovelly, where you can join the donkeys walking the cobbled streets to the harbour. The historic market town of Barnstaple offers some good shopping, cinema, theatre and nightlife and the wonderful Pannier Market where you can pick up some fabulous local produce. Whether you are looking for a relaxed and lazy holiday or wish to explore this beautiful area of Devon, this is a wonderful choice.

Ilfracombe is only a ten minute drive from Exmoor National Park, with its rolling countryside and quaint villages. Ilfracombe's heritage harbour and quay are spectacular, with many pubs, restaurants (including three listed in the Michelin Guide 2017) and shops that create a lively, friendly atmosphere. From here, take a boat trip to magical Lundy Island, a place of natural beauty, which will provide you with an unforgettable experience. Ilfracombe is the centre for some of the finest walking country in England. Whether you enjoy a gentle promenade walk around Capstone Hill, tackling the rugged coastal path or prefer the river valleys and tranquillity of the moorland hills of Exmoor, you will find the scenery spectacular. To the east of Ilfracombe are the unique villages of Lynton and Lynmouth with its clifftop railway, and to the west lie the delights of Clovelly and Hartland. Moreover just a couple of miles away is the 3 mile long golden beach of Woolacombe Bay, a place to relax in the sun or catch some waves surfing.
