The property

Nestled in the coastal town of Ilfracombe is this excellent Grade II listed detached house, Merlin Court.

A truly fantastic property that was once a hotel, Merlin Court provides a boutique sea breeze retreat for a large family who are looking to escape to the Devon coast.

Ample off-road parking spaces greet you on arrival, before you take in this breathtaking dwelling and its outstanding, panoramic views.

Make your way into the property and find original staircases and flooring, before entering a large reception area where you can unwind in this sitting room's ample seating; those looking for more places to relax can venture upstairs to a bright and airy sitting room, boasting a TV, dual-aspect windows and plenty of seating for the group.

A fourth-floor snug that features its own balcony area is a great space to take in the magnificent views of Ilfracombe whilst enjoying some peace and quiet; for even more privacy, make your way up the tower to the fifth-floor, where another snug area awaits.

Progress through to a fantastic kitchen, a commercial space boasting top-quality appliances, including a large fridge/freezer and cooker; the chef of the group can whip up delicious meals that the group can enjoy at the kitchen's stylish seating.

Hold a grand feast in the elegantly furnished dining room with marble details and let the drinks flow from the room's very own bar!

Venture downstairs to the basement to discover a vibrant gym space and relaxing spa room with a massage table; the owner can hire a fitness instructor and therapist to make your stay even more special.

After a day of excitement, head to bed in your home-from-home's wealth of tastefully decorated bedrooms.

The second floor is home to a fabulous king-size room with an en-suite bathroom, containing a fabulous free-standing bath, along with a double that benefits from a private balcony and en-suite shower room.

Continue upstairs to find another double with an en-suite shower room, before making your way upstairs again to find the remaining bedrooms.

The fourth floor is served by two colourful double rooms, one being accompanied by an en-suite shower room, along with three well-presented twin rooms, all benefiting from en-suite shower rooms.

Additionally, you can find another bathroom on this floor, a cloakroom on the ground floor, along with a cloakroom in the basement, for extra convenience.

A utility room is also situated on the ground floor, meaning you don't need to travel far to access laundry facilities.

The kids can enjoy playing on the extensive lawn in the rear garden, as the rest of the group unwinds in the several seating areas on the patio and the lower gravelled areas.

There is a terrace located on the fourth floor that is a great area to catch some sun as you sip on your morning coffee in this boutique environment.

Being located in Ilfracombe means your amenities are less than a mile away, along with days packed with coastal fun; be sure to relax at Tunnels and Wildersmouth Beach, before walking the South West Coast Path to the Ilfracombe Viewpoint where you can take in those dramatic clifftop views, or make your way into town and enjoy a tour of Ilfracombe Museum’s eclectic exhibits.

Walk into vibrant harbour with plentiful restaurants and cafés whilst enjoying Damien Hirst's famous statue, Verity.

Travel to the quiet village of Hele Bay and bask in the sun on Hele Beach, before enjoying a game at Ilfracombe Golf Club, and taking the kids for a tour around the intriguing Chambercombe Manor and The Old Corn Mill.

Take the coastal walk to the picturesque Lee Bay Beach or travel further along the coast Woolacombe where the golden sands of Woolacombe Beach await, along ample birdwatching opportunities at the elevated Baggy Point; be sure to make a stop at The Jube for great service and delicious food.

Outdoors enthusiasts will enjoy venturing into Exmoor National Park, where they can partake in many activities, from kayaking to star-watching and for a day out with a difference, head to Barnstaple and explore its many attractions that are nestled along its winding river.
