  • “Lovely comfortable cottage in an excellent location and really is just a 5 minute stroll from the beach and local shops”

    - Stephen, September 2021

The property

A 200-year old detached cottage, tucked away in an elevated south-facing position along a quiet lane in the coastal village of Combe Martin, North Devon.

This four-bedroom cottage has plenty of character, providing spacious accommodation for families and is a 5-minute stroll from the beach.

The L-shaped sitting/dining room has exposed beams and a stone fireplace with a woodburner, perfect for family gatherings.

There are a well-fitted kitchen in this Combe Martin cottage and a second sitting room, which leads off the mosaic tiled hallway.

Upstairs there are four bedrooms plus a family bathroom.

The south-facing terraced garden can be accessed from the ground floor and also from the single bedroom and provides several decked seating areas with lovely views of the countryside beyond the village of Combe Martin.

There is a short walk from this North Devon cottage to the coastal path and the award-winning Combe Martin Beach, providing walks and activities amongst some breathtaking scenery.

Nearby, why not visit the Dinosaur Park or Watermouth Castle or take a wildlife and coastal cruise from Ilfracombe?

This delightful cottage provides a great seaside location where there is plenty to occupy the family, come rain or shine.
