  • "A couple of issues: 1) No Visitors Guide - nothing about working the heating, internet or emergency contacts 2) We worked out the heating once we found the hive/nest button under the bliler, but no timer/thermostat in the house 3) No access to internet until we finally found the router in the top play room with the boiler 4) The main walk in shower drain is blocked resulting in the tray almost overflowing - the kindly provided a plunger next to the shower, which resulted in black dirt and other "rubbish" coming back into the shower 5) The outer front door could not be securely locked and relied upon a Yale lock only but the door was very loose and poorly fitted 6) The inner front door dead lock would not lock from the outside, so this door could not be locked when going out - at least improving security a little."

The property

Nestled at the heart of the coastal town of Ilfracombe, Devon, lies this delightful, five-bedroom holiday stay, Myrtle House.

Set over three-floors, this charming property boasts a wealth of state-of-the-art appliances, and a superb positioning to nearby attractions and the coastline, making it a perfect choice for families or groups of friends sharing, seeking a relaxing, self-catered stay on the Devonshire north coast.

After you've parked up outside your new home-from-home, step inside to find a range of well-appointed living spaces, including a fully-fitted kitchen where the chosen chef can find all the appliances they need to rustle up tasty, home-cooked meals for the whole group.

Settle down to enjoy your culinary delights at the dining table or sat on the large corner sofa whilst you enjoy a film or two on the sleek, wall-mounted Smart TV.

As the evenings draw to a close, treat yourself to an indulgent bath or a rejuvenating shower before retreating to one of four, plush bedrooms, which are ready to whisk you off to a night of tranquil slumber.

If you can tear yourself away from your peaceful lodgings, take time to explore everything Ilfracombe has to offer by booking a table at Seventy One, or Giovanni & Luca if you fancy a break from cooking one evening, stopping for a pint or some traditional pub fare at The Thatched Inn, and feel the sand between your toes during a stroll on Ilfracombe beach.

Further afield, a short drive south will bring you to Barnstaple, where you can find the attractions of the Clock Tower, Rock Park and the Tarka Trail.

Arlington Court and the National Trust Carriage Museum is also worth a stop whilst you're in the area.

Whatever you choose to do, a memorable stay awaits when you book Myrtle House.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £450.

About the location


Barnstaple 11 miles.

The bustling seaside town of Ilfracombe lies on a beautiful stretch of North Devon coastline, with five beaches, much of it owned by the National Trust. 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, shops and restaurants and frequent live music, creating a lively, friendly atmosphere. From here, take a wildlife cruise, a fishing trip or 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. Ilfracombe also boasts a number of high-quality eateries, with local fish being prominent on their menus. 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 short drive away is the 3 mile long golden beach of Woolacombe Bay, which was been voted one of the top 20 beaches in the world, the perfect place to relax in the sun or catch some waves surfing. Ilfracombe is the perfect location for a North Devon holiday, offering you a gateway to an exciting blend of stunning coastal scenery, seaside fun, rural tranquillity and centuries of heritage and style.
