Cottage -
2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 6
Ilfracombe, Devon, England
Laundry cottage is a cosy and charming two bedroom* Victorian terraced house in a quiet residential area on the outskirts of Ilfracombe, within walking distance (20 mins) of the town centre and famous tunnels beach.
(*It sleeps 4 for a week but can sleep up to 6 for short breaks using the sofa-bed in the front room.)

The cottage has a lovely homely feel and lots of personal touches as it is used by its owner on a regular basis. The kitchen is well equipped and the cottage has FREE WIFI. There is a high chair, cot and stairgate. There is a small sunny patio garden and covered space for hanging washing/wetsuits.

The cottage is on the South West edge of town on the road to Lee, along a rural valley with the Torrs on one side and the Cairn on the other. Access to walking on the Torrs, the Tarka trail and the coastal path is all about 10...

This was my second stay at Laundry Cottage, so I must like it! The house is warm, quiet and comfortable and has everything you need for a great stay close to Ilfracombe and the wonderful Atlantic beach at Woolacombe. Thanks Fiona...

About the neighbourhood
Ilfracombe is in an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, nestling snugly amongst the rugged cliffs of the majestic Atlantic coast. The beautiful and breathtaking scenery of the North Devon coast surrounds this charming natural harbour. The harbour is now home to Verity, a stunning 20ft high bronze statue by Damien Hirst, erected in October 2012.

The town has grown up around the harbour where today fishing vessels share anchorage with pleasure craft, and from where the M. S. Oldenburg regularly sails to Lundy Island, twelve miles off the coastline. The resort has been popular since the 1830’s when the Victorians started to visit the area and much of the architecture today is a reminder of the Victorian era. Many of the large, elegant buildings, have since been converted into hotels. Wit...
Getting around
It's ideal to have a car to get to the beaches but you can walk into Ilfracombe easily for bars and restaurants. A cab is only £3 each way if you don't fancy the 15 min walk. If you don't drive, there is also a good local bus service to get to most places or you can hire bikes....
