The property

Enjoying a prime position on the famous Fore Street in the seaside town of Ilfracombe is this pretty pink mid-terrace property, Harbour Cottage.

A small family or a couple can settle in this classic three-storey terrace cottage and be within strolling distance of Ilfracombe's beaches, shops and pubs providing a perfect holiday setting in Devon.

Enter straight into the entertaining games room and find the perfect spot for the kids to enjoy a game on the Xbox with a sofa to relax on too.

From here you can find the ground-floor bathroom, home to a corner bath and shower attachment for a calming soak after a day of walking.

Head upstairs to the heart of the home on the first floor, gather in the evening to watch a DVD in the sitting area after a sit-down meal at the dining table, amidst the many period features retained.

An ample-sized kitchen hosting all you need for a self-catered stay, including a gas hob and electric oven and even a handy dishwasher, leads to the outdoor patio area, with further steps leading to a larger decking, an ideal spot to enjoy the afternoon sun and take in the views of Hillsborough.

Discover the lovely two bedrooms on the second-floor, comprising of a king-size with zip/link features, so it can be a twin on request, and a double bedroom, along with a shower room on this floor too.

You can step out onto Fore Street and be spoilt for choice with what to do in this delightful town; grab a drink in the popular George and Dragon pub just a few doors down, browse the independent shops for some souvenirs or head down to the beach.

Begin exploring at the harbour and catch sight of the boats coming and going, maybe even booking a wildlife cruise or a fishing trip for a day.

Visit the Ilfracombe Aquarium which offers local fish exhibits, feeding demonstrations and has a café and gift shop.

Sink your toes in the sand on Cheyne Beach, a small stretch of sands between the headlands, before heading to Capstone Hill where beautiful views of the surrounding coastline can be enjoyed as well as panoramic views of the town.

A must-visit is the famous Tunnels Beaches; four tunnels hand-carved in the 1820s leading to a beach and Victorian tidal bathing pool.

Only a little further out you can find more wonderful coastal spots like Woolacombe, Saunton Sands, and Combe Martin.

Enjoy a relaxing break in Ilfracombe at Harbour Cottage.
