Detached barn conversion with a private hot tub, located near the fishing town of Ilfracombe which provides easy access to explore some of North Devon’s hidden gems.

Featuring the most incredible views from the hot tub and with a garden with play equipment for the little ones, this beautiful cottage would be ideal for a family and their two canine companions to come and enjoy a North Devon seaside adventure. Pack your bucket and spades as this place is within easy reach of some of the most beautiful beaches in the UK, from the surfing hotspot of Woolacombe (7 miles) to the dog-friendly golden sandy stretch at Saunton (11 miles). Inside, the renovated barn is spacious and modern, with luxury furnishings and quirky accessories blending with period features to create a perfect holiday home.

The huge open-plan kitchen/dining area is a chef’s dream, with wooden units, an open vaulted ceiling and a deep butler sink creating a traditional rustic feel. There’s an adjoining utility room which provides a handy space to get sandy clothes washed or soggy dog jackets dried. The spacious lounge houses deep, comfortable sofas and plenty of room for Fido to roam around or to sit in front of the French doors overlooking the ocean. Head upstairs via a pretty spiral staircase to find a luxurious en-suite master bedroom featuring an enormous bed and a claw-footed roll-top bath. The two other bedrooms are equally as special and provide guests with a range of flexible sleeping options. Outside, let Rover run around in the garden while you relax in the hot tub.

The small seaside resort of Ilfracombe is just 4 miles from the property and home to a selection of independent retailers, cafes, restaurants and a chocolate emporium! Or grab your lead and join the Tarka Trail from here, exiting the town via Slade Valley and enjoying the beautiful scenery and traffic free woodlands towards Woolacombe. Buy a curry at dog-friendly Barricane Beach and eat on the sand whilst watching the sunset.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

This is a stunning cottage with great facilities and in a perfect location. Beautiful welcome with cake and milk in order to make a much needed cup of tea! The views are wonderful and sitting in the jacuzzi soaking it all up is a perfect holiday activity. The house is done to a very high standard and is just lovely.

Great property and great value. This is a lovely countryside property just outside of Ilfracombe. Perfect for access to the town and the surrounding areas.

The ceiling lighting in the lounge is very bright. The lounge would benefit from some table lamps for a more cosy ambient light in the evenings.

The cottage is in a convenient location and just off the main road to Ilfracombe. The cottacge is very clean and tidy. We had an issue with the wifi which we lost part way through the holiday, but as the router appeared to be locked away had no means of resetting this which was an inconvenience. Most other aspects were as expected.
