Situated on Ilfracombe's oldest street just a short stroll from the harbour & beaches, Crab Cottage is the perfect place for a classic coastal holiday.

This centuries old cottage has been carefully restored and equipped to provide comfortable accommodation with modern conveniences.

At the back of the house you will find a surprisingly large garden with stunning coastal views.

If you don't want to venture far then you will find that Crab Cottage is at the heart of Ilfracombe's harbour area with all it's restaurants, pubs and shops; not forgetting the fantastic tunnel beaches, which are just a short stroll away.

The property is a great place for families or couples to stay, but is easily large enough for couples sharing. Dogs are also welcome.

Ground floor - On the ground floor there is a large kitchen diner with plenty of space to cook, to eat and relax. There is also a comfortable lounge with plenty of room for all guests.

Upstairs - on the first floor you will find two good sized bedrooms. The main bedroom has a double bed and the second bedroom has two full size twin beds.

Outside - the garden at Crab Cottage is quite unique for central Ilfracombe, as well as there being a patio area with seating for eating outside, you will find a large rambling garden of fruit trees and grass, from which there are fine views across Ilfracombe and the coast.

The Devon region

Devon is a fantastic place to holiday with traditional seaside towns and stunning beaches as well as the moors and fabulous countryside as seen in the film War Horse. The north coast has cliffs and rocks punctuated by beautiful coves and beaches- some bust and so so secluded that you can end up with them to yourself.

Ilfracombe Harbour

Ilfracombe is a classic seaside resort that is undergoing a revival, especially around the harbour area where Damian Hirst's Verity stands guard at the entrance. Love it or hate it you can't deny that it is a landmark and a must see. Damian's restaurant on the quay is leading the charge in the food revival with several really good little places working with local ingredients as well as a big range of cafes and pubs
