Lovely little cottage very close to the beach
This is a lovely cottage with everything you need for a short stay. It is a short walk to the beach which was lovely even at the end of October. A great base for exploring the area and plenty of walking to be had - great for the dog! Village has everything you need - good food at the Deck of Cards pub, and a Michelin starred restaurant in Ifracombe should you want to treat yourselves. Highly recommended!
