The property

Perched in the quaint village of Hele Bay in Devon is this superb three-bedroom cottage, Bluebell Cottage.

Boasting a peaceful location and easy access to the beautiful cove of Hele Beach, Bluebell Cottage is ideal for a family of six or a group of friends who are looking to explore Devon’s fabulous coast.

Be welcomed into the living/dining room, where you can look forward to curling up on the plush leather sofas, as you enjoy your favourite film on the TV in front of the warming log burner.

As stomach’s begin to rumble, head to the well-equipped kitchen to conjure up a flavourful feast using the gas oven and hob, fridge/freezer, microwave and handy dishwasher, making cleaning up a breeze!

Gather around the dining table for six and savour a tasty meal, as the wine flows and plans are made for the days ahead.

If the weather is nice, why not make it an alfresco feast in the private enclosed garden?

Completing the ground-floor is a convenient cloakroom, ideal for avoiding those morning queues for the bathroom!

As your eyes grow heavy, climb the stairs to the first-floor where you will find three well-presented bedrooms, a super-king-size, a super-king-size with zip/link and a twin, ensuring ample sleeping arrangements for all parties.

Kick-start your day with a refreshing shower or an indulgent soak in the bath, before enjoying your morning coffee out on the decking before a day of adventures.

Set out and explore the local village, where you will find two welcoming pubs just a stone’s throw away, The Hele Bay Pub and the Madrigal Brewery Shop & Tap Room, perfect for sampling the local ales or grabbing a bite to eat after a long day of exploring.

Head to the glorious sands of Hele Beach, where you can throw down your towel and bask in the sunshine with a good book, paddle the shores or build sandcastles with the little ones.

Next stop is the sheltered hamlet of Watermouth, home to a magnificent Victorian castle which houses suits of armour and includes theme park rides, a toy train, play areas and extensive gardens.

For a peaceful moment, wander to Watermouth’s picturesque harbour where you can watch the world go by or treat your guests to coffee and a cake at the popular Storm in a Teacup.

Take the short drive into Ilfracombe, where you will find an excellent selection of amenities, from independent shops to pubs, restaurants and cafes to suit all tastes and budgets.

There is also the Ilfracombe Museum where you can delve into the town’s rich history, enjoy the beaches of Rapparee Cove and Wildermouth Beach, embark on a fishing charter or experience the stunning views from Capstone Hill.

For a refreshing coastal escape with your loved ones, choose Bluebell Cottage.
