    “New Years fun and frolics”

    We booked this cottage from 30th Dec-2nd Jan Mel & her husband, me, my husband and 2 dogs. The cottage looked lovely on arrival but inside was even lovelier. Beautifully decorated, very well appointed with everything you could need was thought of, fab log burner and underfloor heating so was very warm and cosy. All 3 of the bedrooms are a really good size though we only used the 2 with en-suite bathrooms. If you have children or even as adults there were plenty of games for those rainy days ...

    We booked this cottage from 30th Dec-2nd Jan Mel & her husband, me, my husband and 2 dogs. The cottage looked lovely on arrival but inside was even lovelier. Beautifully decorated, very well appointed with everything you could need was thought of, fab log burner and underfloor heating so was very warm and cosy. All 3 of the bedrooms are a really good size though we only used the 2 with en-suite bathrooms. If you have children or even as adults there were plenty of games for those rainy days and a choice of dvd's too (not that we used any of them). You can literally see the sign for the pub from the front door which we fully made use of ....... well it was new year after all!!! The pub is very friendly and does some nice food aswell and we also found the locals on New Years Eve to be very welcoming and friendly. Would have no hesitation in rebooking this again but may try a different season next time for a change. I would say if you have a small dog the five bar gate may not be sufficient but that's a very trivial point in the general scheme of the whole property.

The property

Ilfracombe 2.8 miles.

Resting in an area of outstanding natural beauty and within striking distance of the glorious Lee Bay Beach is this listed, thatched dwelling, Old Maids Cottage.

This truly characterful accommodation is ideally situated for a family seeking to explore North Devon, with its dramatic coastline and the rolling countryside of the Exmoor National Park.

Admiring the tradition of the quaint village of Lee with its winding streets including two thatched cottages, relax into your evening within the brightly decorated, open-plan living room.

This home by the sea offers a contemporary, galley-style kitchen, boasting quality appliances to ensure that you and your loved ones can cater for yourselves during your stay.

Follow the room around to be welcomed in by the sitting room, where the woodburning stove invites you in after an action-packed day of exploring.

After preparing a delicious evening meal, gather with your loved ones in the dining room, offering a wonderful space for planning the days ahead or whiling away a couple of hours playing one of the board games that are on offer at this cottage.

Follow the staircase up to find three spacious bedrooms, each featuring leaded windows, a refreshing ambiance and plenty of storage for your personal belongings.

Choose to catch your rest within either the double bedroom, a zip/link bedroom with an en-suite bath or the double bedroom which features a glass screen which separates the room from the stylish en-suite bath.

To the outside, you will find ample off-road parking, as well as a raised patio area where alfresco dining can be enjoyed during the summer months or a glass of something refreshing can be had as you soak up the final glimpses of sunshine.

For those special occasions, a short stroll will bring you to the local pub in the village of Lee, or for picking up the essentials head to the town of Ilfracombe where a selection of shops awaits you.

Whilst staying at the Old Maids Cottage, be sure to head to the local beach where views of the Bristol Channel can be enjoyed, or head to Ilfracombe where you can look forward to walking along the iconic South West Coast Path.
