Property code: OC-DILLYD

This deceptively spacious, terraced property is decorated in a high-quality, contemporary style to provide a fantastic base for a large family or gathering of friends, perhaps for a special occasion or simply to unwind and enjoy North Devon’s glorious coast and countryside. Just 400m away, the pretty, stone-built village of Mortehoe offers pubs, a shop and places to eat, and here you can also pick up the South West Coast Path and head out on the 6-mile walk to Morte Point and then Bull Point, taking in cliffs, rocky headlands and sandy bays (and possibly glimpsing some seals). The award-winning beach at Woolacombe is less than a mile away, where you can relax and enjoy 3 miles of golden sand – though for the more energetic there is also the option of surfing, windsurfing, kayaking, jet-skiing and sailing. There are also plenty of places to eat and drink in Woolacombe.

The light and airy atmosphere of this three-storey property is hugely appealing, and it is a great place in which to relax at any time of the year. In summer, throw open the bi-fold doors to the raised deck off the lounge and enjoy the indoor-outdoor vibe; in winter, curl up with a book or newspaper by the wood burner. The L-shaped lounge also incorporates a dining area, while the bright and breezy kitchen has a breakfast bar and all the equipment necessary for creating picnics, snacks or substantial meals. Upstairs, the master suite has a king-size bed, a dressing area and en-suite bathroom, with hillside and sea views, while on this floor are also a family bathroom plus two further bedrooms. Each with delightful views and mirrored wardrobes that contribute to their welcoming, airy feel, these rooms can be configured as either twins or super-king-size for your convenience. From the hall, stairs lead to the lower ground floor where you will find a chic double bedroom and a bathroom, a useful utility, and a fabulous games room where the whole family can challenge each other to games of table football.

The raised decked area off the lounge is furnished with a bistro table and chairs from which to take in the gorgeous sunsets or simply gaze at the sea views and the sheep roaming on the hillside by the house. From here, there are steps down to the enclosed garden (also accessed directly from the lower ground floor) which has dining furniture and a BBQ – a lovely spot in which to grill up some memorable meals.

Booked this property as a family holiday for 4 generations and the dog, we had a great time and the house was plenty big enough for all of us, we never felt like we were on top of each other. Having 3 bathrooms was helpful especially when trying to get out and about early. We ate out several times and can highly recommend Miss Feas and the nationaRead morel trust tea rooms, the cream tea was most welcome after walking the coastal paths.

Dilly Dally is like the tardis. From the outside it looks tiny, but its a lovely large property in Mortehoe village. Its well equipped and comfy for when weather is not so good. We would recommend.

Loved the location and comfort and would happily return in a heartbeat. The showers are fantastic. Just FYI the boiler heating timings may have been impacted by the time change but we had to keep an eye and adjust the thermostat as it often got cold when we were in. The thermostat on the towel rail in the toilet next to the kitchen is broken (beforRead moree we arrived) and is constantly stuck on high. It is uncomfortably hot in there whenever the heating is on.

Overall Dilly Dally exceeded our expectations, as a clean, spacious comfortable place to stay. We nearly dismissed the house pre booking, as we needed a walk-in shower. The ensuite walk in shower is not mentioned on Marsden site, but owners confirmed there was, so we booked. Also lack of clarity about wood for burner, some sites say it's provided,Read more others to contact housekeeping. Can't ring housekeeper from house, no mobile reception. Need email or Whatsapp contact. We were impressed with the well equipped kitchen, would recommend a bigger teapot for 4-6 guests, and some serving spoons. Unfortunately the basement bedroom and bathroom is very cold, needs a seperate heater, as the hall thermostat turns off central heating when heat from kitchen and log burner warms reception area. Would definitely think about revisiting in the summer. Hide

We loved the house. It was very well equipped and comfortable. Overall the house was very clean. The reason for not giving it a 5 for cleanliness was dust on the skirting boards, stains on the carpet and marks on the walls. Our holiday was at the very end of the season so the stains and marks are to be expected. This didn't our enjoyment of stayingRead more in the house at all. Hide
