It is extremely well equipped with a lovely big kitchen . There is enough space for two families. There was only two of us for our week but we loved the rambling space and peacefulness. It is pretty close to Ilfracombe and Woolacombe and plenty of other little villages and beautiful beaches. We would definitely go there again.

The first day we saw 1) a young stoat doing acrobatics and playing with 2 magpies just below the window 2) a whole party of people being baptized in the sea, fully dressed 3) a major air/sea rescue practice involving 2 lifeboats, a coastguard cliff rescue team, the police and the coastguard helicopter. When we did tear ourselves away, we walked on Baggy Point and Lobb Hill, and also went down the toll road to Crow Point and viewed interesting wading birds on Horsey Island. This comfortable apartment is a great base for so many different adventures and activities.
