We had a lovely short stay in Mortehoe but enjoyed every minute. Perfect house and location for us and our two young children. We'll certainly be back

Comfortable,well equipped,bright and clean.

5 of 5
Despite all of us being struck down by a nasty flu virus we still managed to enjoy our stay due to the flat being so comfortable and homely. We stayed in a lot lounging on the comfortable sofas and watching tv. When we did go out and enjoy Ilfracombe it was nice to return to a warm and relaxing base. Really hoping to stay here again in the future as it was pefect for a family of four (2 adults and 2 thirteen year old boys).
