The property

Resting on the coast in Hele Bay, Devon is the fantastic, detached cottage of Lilac Cottage.

Set within easy reach of the beach, and enjoying its own, outdoor hot tub, Lilac Cottage is the perfect base for a family of five's seaside break.

After parking in one of two sought-after off-road parking spaces, head inside to find a charming sitting room, where you can lounge of the leather seating after a day at the beach; switch on the TV for some entertainment.

Progress to the kitchen, where you will find, high-gloss red finishes and a fantastic selection of appliances that will please any budding chef.

Fix up a culinary delight and enjoy it at the dining table with your loved ones, be sure to crack open a bottle of wine and toast to this marvellous, coastal escape!

After dinner, head out to the back garden, where you can unwind on the decking as you catch up on your beachside escapes, or soak up in the hot tub; the garden also hosts a barbecue, so you can have friends over for an alfresco meal.

When night falls, freshen up in the ground-floor cloakroom, or upstairs in the fabulous bathroom, where a p-shaped bath and shower over await.

The first floor also hosts three well-appointed bedrooms, with one being a lovely king-size, along with a single and twin room that are ideal for extra friends or the kids.

Travel a very short distance to find a pub and tearoom up the street, along with a well-stocked shop where you can purchase any essentials for your self-catering stay; Hele Bay is also home to the historic Old Corn Mill and backs onto the Hillsborough Nature Reserve, the idyllic Hele Beach and the esteemed Ilfracombe Golf Club.

A leisurely stroll will bring you to Ilfracombe, where you can spend the day exploring Ilfracombe Museum, Ilfracombe Harbour and unwinding on one of the many stunning coves surrounding the town; why not embark on a walk through Capstone Hill, where panoramic views of the sea can be admired.

Watermouth isn't far and hosts a breathtaking Castle where you can treat the kids to a day out in its surrounding theme park and play areas, or enjoy an afternoon filled with exhilaration at the nearby Active Escape centre.

Combe Martin is nearby and hosts a fantastic Wildlife & Dinosaur Park that is perfect for the kids, or you can continue to the bustling town of Barnstaple, where an array of attractions await.
