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.
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.

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 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.
