Property code: 59752

This spacious property sits in an enviable spot in the centre of the seaside town of Ilfracombe. Ideal for family groups or friends looking for style comfort and fun at any time of the year.

Discover the incredible North Devon coast from this contemporary haven in Ilfracombe. Wake up by the sea, live in beautiful interiors and then venture out to experience miles of golden sand, excellent surf and secluded coves. This is a great destination for large groups as there is something and somewhere for everyone to enjoy. A recently refurbed Regency house, it has retained its magic but received a fantastic fresh look and feel.

 

Expect high ceilings, spacious rooms and stylish decor from this house by the sea. It's extremely impressive from the moment you enter and step into the open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner. Natural light floods the room, which makes it a very special setting for eating, relaxing and just hanging out. The kitchen is well-equipped and thoughtfully designed for large groups by offering two electric ovens so you can cook up an impressive feast; there is also an American-style fridge/freezer and wine cooler for storing all the important things. Guests are sure to find the utility room handy after beach or hiking days, and it has both a washing machine and tumble dryer. With full bellies, you can retire to the comfy sofas for the evening and set up for a film night or even get out a board game to flex your competitive side. If you're looking for some quiet downtime away from the group, escape to the snug, ideal for little ones who can dip into the box of games and puzzles. There is a dedicated leisure floor, where you will find a cinema room with plush sofas and a large screen, and adjoining this is a games room. Everyone is sure to be entertained by the pool table, table football and darts, and you can set the soundtrack using the Bluetooth speakers, or have the Smart TV playing in the background. The six bedrooms are spread across the first and second floor. Each is impeccably decorated, and some boast sea views. There is a garden behind the house that has a delightful patio, garden furniture and BBQ, giving easy access to the coastal footpath. At the front of the property is off-road parking for four cars. There is also an outside shower and tap, ideal for rinsing off wetsuits or sandy toes and paws.

Our stay was brilliant, the house had everything we needed to keep all 11 of us happy and content, it was modern clean and tidy. The location is great to use the house as a base and travel to the near by towns and the Ilfracombe is a pleasant town itself. Owner was friendly and very helpful.

Well set out accommodation for the larger family groups with bedrooms and bathrooms over the first and second floors. The ground floor and lower ground floors give plenty of social, living and gathering spaces. Works very well, and with its central location in Ilfracombe it gives an excellent base for local attractions.
