Large TV and Playstation 3, DVD player and docking station. Bright and airy room with large windows and patio doors to the balcony. The balcony is a perfect place to sit and watch the world go by or to eat your fish and chips as the sun goes down.

The large kitchen area has a brand new oven, hob and extractor fan and dishwasher, plus everything you will need to prepare a family meal.

Off of the kitchen is a utility room with a washing machine, tumble dryer, microwave and a further sink. Great place to leave muddy boots and wellies when you return from the beach or a long walk. Door leading to the back of the property and down the side of the bungalow to the front door. There are a few steps up to the main garden area which is grassed and also has a fantastic view of the sea. Through another door off the kitchen is the hallway to the bedrooms and bathrooms.

The main bedroom, has a double bed and also a sofa-chair, ideal for an extra child, but large enough for an adult too. The main bedroom features an en-suite, equipped with a large electric shower, basin and toilet. Two further bedrooms, both with twin beds. Wardrobes and chests of drawers are available for your use in each bedroom. Right next to the twin rooms is the bathroom, with basin, toilet, bath and power shower over the bath.

High chair, travel cot and booster seat also available for your use.

Further details outdoors

The bungalow is situated on a hill so there is quite a steep walk up to the property from the main car park in the village. There is a flight of stairs up to the entrance to the property. Therefore, it would not be suitable for wheelchair access.

There is space outside the property for 2 vehicles comfortably, but if carefully manoeuvred you could fit 3 vehicles in front of the property.

Further details

Due to the steep hill up to the property and the flight of stairs to the front door this property would not be suitable for wheelchair users.

Children are welcome who should be supervised at all times.

One well behaved animal also welcome. Additional cost of £25.

£100 refundable deposit.

The Devon region

Combe Martin is where the Exmoor National Park and the North Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty meet. This really is a fantastic destination for walkers and cyclists. Hangman Hill and Wild Pear beach are both walkable locations from St Crispins.

Just a few miles away you will find the town of Ilfracombe where you can book a boat ride at the harbour out to Lundy Island or a wildlife cruise aboard the Ilfracombe Princess.

Golden sandy beaches can be found along the dramatic North Devon Coastline, in Woolacombe, Croyde and Saunton all well known for surfing, all within a 20 minute drive.

In the other direction you will find the picturesque historic towns of Lynton and Lynmouth, with a good selection of tea rooms, cafes and shops. No trip is complete without taking a ride from Lynmouth's stunning harbour to Lynton by the world famous water-powered Cliff Railway.

Combe Martin

Combe Martin is a small friendly village, with a good choice of pubs, restaurants, tea rooms and gift shops. There is a large convenience store located in the centre of the village which is just a 5 minutes walk. The beach is a two minute walk down the hill where you will find the sand and shingle beach. Ideal holiday destinations for those interested in kayaking, rock pooling and fishing.

All ages will enjoy the Combe Martin Wildlife and Dinosaur Park and Botanical Gardens, a 10 minute drive away.

For the past 30 years, Combe Martin have presented 'Carnival Week' in August, with a host of fun activities for all the family, which includes colouring competitions, raft racing, wheelbarrow race. Highlights are the main parade, which is a must to see, it runs through the length of the village down to the beach ending with a spectacular firework display on the friday night on the beach. St Crispins really does have the best view of the fireworks so you can view from the balcony or in the warmth of the bungalow.

Carnival Week in 2013 is 3rd - 9th August.

Other events not to be missed include:

- North Devon Walking & Cycling Festival in the first week in May.

- Strawberry Fayre on the first Sunday in June.

- Music Festival running each weekend in July.

"The best holiday home we have ever had in GB"

From the moment of booking we were very well attented to, even during our stay we had the feeling if we had had any problem we would have been helped by a very caring owner. From the moment we opened the door of the house we fell in love with this house and place. A warm welcome with tea and biscuits and even milk and orange juice in the fridge gave us the feeling of really being welcome and cared for. Everything was clean and tidy, very tasteful and really best equipped for all intents and purposes. From scales in the kitchen to a hairdryer with diffuser and pegs for hanging your clothes on a clothes dryer you will hardly miss anything you have at home. The bathrooms are newly renovated and have very modern and very well working showers, which is -due to our experience and German view on technics- not usual in GB... We also found it very practically that you can "close" the balcony so you can relax even when you have small children or pets around you because they can not escape unseen. The seperate utility room is very useful for cleaning dogs bowls, sandy toys or storing away sth. From there you have a seperate exit to the enclosed garden behind the house. The washing machine as well as the dryer are new and good quality and the freezer offers a lot of space.
The balcony is the place you won't leave voluntarily and when our dog sat there overpeering the whole bay I am sure it felt like Leonardo di Caprio when he cried "I am the king of the world" in Titanic.

The main beach is not allowed for dogs in summer but just a few steps further on you will find a bay they are allowed off the leads to have fun. If you have seen the sun setting from the balcony or from the pub's pier you will be addicted to this place.
In the village you get anything you need for your basic holiday supply - even on Sundays and in the late evening and if you have futher wishes, Ilfracombe with its superstores is really not very far. Our fear Combe Martin could be "off the beaten track" didn't come true. It is really easy to get anywhere in North Devon within short time and North Devon offers so many exciting sights and attractions you have to choose carefully for you won't get round in a holiday.

We arrived around 4.30pm sat. The cottage was everything we had hoped for, clean, tidy, modern and spacious. We were given good directions to the cottage and had no trouble finding it.About ten steps up to the Front door and we entered the house WOW what a place everything you could ask for all mod cons and more a massive lounge with a great dining area,and a kitchen To keep the keenest cook happy.The lounge had two sliding French doors Leading Onto a huge balcony which was the full length of the building the view from this Balcony was truely breathtaking as the house was built on the side of the valley it Looked right down onto the whole of Combe Martin this Included the town,the beach,and the tidal bay .I was always keen to get up In the morning and look out at this view.In a word This place is fantastic,there are lots of places to go from here or you can just stay in and enjoy the place as it is,I Want To Live Here.I would love to come again in 2014.

"What a find !!"

What can I say about our stay at St Crispins !!! We found a true "Gem" when we booked this wonderful property. St Crispins is located in a wonderful position in Combe Martin overlooking the coast and the sunshine we had really made it a fantastic view from the balony each morning and sunset. The property was extremely clean and had every you would need for a weeks stay - really it was home from home. It is a great base for visits to nearby attractions but we also had a couple of relaxing days around Combe Martin enjoying the museum, cakes from "Toms" and ice creams from all around town !!! My boys (12 & 9) loved being able to go onto the beach to play football or just pop into the shop to buy more ice cream. There is no need to get your car out at night as there are some lovely places to eat. A short walk to the Pack 'O Cards was worthwhile (we even came 2nd in their weekly quiz!!!) and the local Fish & Chip shop is a must visit. This is a fabulous property for the whole family and Ness our dog loved the rock pools. This is certainly one property we will visit again.
