Property Description

This converted cottage offers a peaceful and relaxing holiday base. Set on a hill commanding splendid views across Watermouth Bay and the imposing coastline of North Devon, it is surrounded by fields on a 100-acre farm where cattle and llamas graze. Nineteenth-century Watermouth Castle nestles below the farm. The harbour and the South West Coastal footpath are only 10 minutes’ walk away. There are many local attractions, including the village of Berrynarbor (1½ miles) – a taste of unchanged Devon with its 13th-century church and pub. Ilfracombe (2½ miles) offers the famous Landmark Theatre, picturesque harbour, quayside shops and restaurants, deep sea fishing and pleasure boats. Golf course 1 mile.

Perched on a hill above Watermouth Bay with a marvellous view, this single-storey beamed cottage stands alone. Open-plan, comfortable sitting/dining room and well-equipped kitchen area. Two bedrooms; one double with wash basin and one twin. Bathroom with shower over sunken bath and toilet. Sunny, secluded, cobbled courtyard with picnic bench and shed.

Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. The cottage has tremendous views across the Bristol Channel to Wales. We were made very welcome together with lots of information regarding places to go etc; a copy of the local paper was a nice touch. It may help first time visitors to indicate how far the entrance is from Coombe Martin. Overall a lovely cottage in a lovely location which we would love to visit again. Oct 2012.
  2. Fantastic location with outstanding views. A very warm welcome. Very secluded and the barn would be excellent for youngish children to play in on rainy days. A very good base for walking on the coast path. Just the right balance of feeling looked after combined with privacy. All round excellent. June 2012.
  3. Website virtual tour does not do the property justice. Very welcoming owners. Brochure does not show a freezer at the cottage although one was available for us to use in the attached stone outbuilding. May 2012.
  4. Idyllic setting - beautiful cottage, fully equipped and comfortably furnished. Little touches like fresh flowers from the garden set the tone from day one. Peace and quiet in abundance. May 2012.
  5. Fabulous accommodation with excellent views. April 2012.
  6. This is a wonderful place in every respect. The photographs and virtual tour were accurate but still didn’t do the place justice. It was bigger and cosier than we were expecting and the views even better than we hoped for! The owner was very friendly and helpful. We’ll definitely go back! Oct 2011.
  7. Cottage has excellent sea views and is ideally located for access to all areas. Local restaurants give value for money. Sept 2011.
  8. A very comfy cottage with one of the best views from the sitting room I have ever seen from a country cottage. The owners were very helpful, pity the weather not very good. Aug 2011.
  9. It was our 14th visit to this property - this confirms our satisfaction. April 2011.
  10. The location, overlooking the fields to the sea and over to south wales was lovely. the cottage style was very romantic. Dec 2010.
  11. The setting was lovely and peaceful and the views of the sea beautiful. Sept 2010.
  12. Very good property and situation. July 2010.
  13. The view from the lounge window was outstanding, always something to watch even on inclement days. Watching the swifts catching insects to feed their young was amazing, even nesting in the barn. The welcome from the owner was outstanding and informative, even to flowers in the property which made us feel special. May 2010.
  14. Lovely clean accommodation. Simple but welcoming. Friendly welcome and beautiful sea views. May 2010.
  15. Its situation and layout. May 2010.
  16. It was clean, cosy, secluded, peaceful, well equipped just what you want for a quiet week away to relax and unwind. Oct 2009.
  17. Totally peaceful with excellent views. Sept 2009.
  18. Beautiful views, tranquil setting and a true little idyll. Aug 2009.
  19. The cottage was very cosy with excellent views over looking the sea. A little piece of heaven. The kitchen was fully equipped with everything needed to cook a meal and supplied with dishwasher tablets, washing powder, tablecloths and napkins. We even found wellies in the barn for rainy days! Wild life on your doorstep if you wanted it. A great base for long or short walks. Fantastic! July 2009.
  20. View from living room window needs to be emphasised as a major attraction. The owner was the most helpful and friendly we have ever en counted at one of your cottages. June 2009.
