    The caretaker came round and I think completely by fluke got it working again but then the same thing happened when we went to use it later so we had 3 days where we couldn’t use it.. We messaged the caretaker about the issue happening again but our message wasn’t acknowledged. We were very disappointed and don’t feel we got everything we paid for. We have used Sykes several times and I always recommend them to friends. Have already booked a break for next year and am about to book a second , just hope if we encounter problems again they are resolved properly - we could book cheaper properties but always choose those with hot tubs even though you pay considerably more

    - Susan, November 2021

    Hi Sue, thank you for your feedback. It’s really appreciated. We’re really sorry to hear about the hot tub. We thought it had been resolved on Sunday but will now get the hot tub company to look into it. I’m aware that this is too late for your weekend though, so have emailed you to offer you some compensation for the impact on your stay and to offer you a discount if you’d like to return. Best wishes, John Property Owner

The property

This contemporary, detached cottage is set over three floors and sits in an idyllic, elevated position within the North Devon Heritage Coast Nature Reserve, just one mile from the serene seaside resort of Ilfracombe.

Create unforgettable memories with friends and family at the incredible Valley View, which boasts breath-taking, 180-degree, panoramic views of rolling countryside.

You will be spoilt by the gardens that surround the property, including lawns, flowers, a pond and two large sun decks to make the most of the views.

After an exhilarating day of trekking the coastal path and exploring the surrounding landscape, hang up your coats, kick off your muddy shoes in the boot room and take one last glance at the exquisite scenery, before heading inside for a night of relaxation.

Turn yourself into a Michelin-starred chef with the spectacular kitchen providing all the high-quality fixtures and fittings you could possibly need, including an inset stainless steel sink unit with mixer tap, an American-style fridge/freezer and Range cooker.

Enjoy your meals in the adjacent dining room, which boasts a cosy wood burning stove and plenty of seating, the ideal place to bring everybody together.

The bright and airy sitting room boasts triple aspect, south-facing windows, which provide awe-inspiring views, making the experience extra special.

Head up the wooden staircase to the bright and spacious landing, with views down the valley, which doubles as a fun-filled games area, complete with table football and an assortment of children's games and toys.

Get that all-important peaceful night's sleep in one of five sumptuously decorated bedrooms; the first-floor master bedroom showcases a dressing area with mirrored wardrobes, a delightful en-suite shower room and a Juliet balcony for added wow factor.

In addition to patio doors opening onto the lawn, a swing door from the lower ground floor bedroom leads to a shower room with a state-of-the-art sauna for you to truly indulge and unwind in.

Heading back upstairs, you’ll find the newly refurbished family bathroom, furnished to a superb standard, together with an additional shower room.

Outside, there is a glorious sun deck, another real highlight of the property, offering plenty of space for outdoor entertainment, along with seating, a BBQ and yet more panoramic views across the valley.

There’s even a six-seat hot tub for you to relax in and enjoy a glass of bubbly, while the two sun decks and south-facing aspect of the garden means you can soak up every last drop of sunlight.

The property sits within the vicinity of some amazing beaches; just four miles away is the award-winning Woolacombe beach, one of the finest beaches in the West Country and a firm favourite with families and surfers.

Alternatively, take time to wander the beautiful, private, formal gardens at your leisure.

Valley View itself is nestled in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty; from the end of the drive is a footpath in both directions, linking to the scenic South West Coastal Path.

Those who prefer to explore on wheels can find the Tarka Line Cycle route, running through the valley, while there are several fishing lakes in the unspoilt woodland, just a ten-minute walk from the property.

Head to Ilfracombe, approximately 1 mile away, and sunbathe on its glorious beach, stroll along the picturesque harbour and enjoy fine dining at Damien Hirst's The Quay Restaurant.

Woolacombe and its award-winning beach is just 4 miles away.

Valley View makes for a memorable stay with your loved ones at any time of year.

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.
