House | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 8
This fabulous coastal holiday home in the pretty village of Mortehoe close to the vibrant village of Woolacombe and its stunning beach is perfect for a family holiday. Four bedrooms and four bathrooms, no queues for the loo in this rental! The open plan kitchen lounge diner on the middle floor is a great space for family get togethers and the kitchen even has a Juliet balcony to take in the village backdrop. On the same floor is a delightful child's bedroom complete with bunks as well as a family bathroom. On the top floor you'll find a vast master bedroom complete with full size en suite bathroom. Two further doubles on the ground floor have an en suite and a separate shower room. These two bedrooms are very peaceful as they are away from the main hub of the house as well as having easy access. Also on the ground floor the very spacious utility for keeping all the messy stuff away from view. To the rear is a pretty enclosed courtyard ideal for bbqs. The finish and spec is second to none on this property making it a dream holiday home. Comes complete with two off road parking spaces. Walk straight out the front into the pretty village with its great pubs, tea rooms and village shops and also to the fabulous coastal walks that surround this area.
Please note this property is one of nearly 60 other places in Woolacombe featured on my own website called Holiday Home Hunter where you can find more info, updated availability, prices and book and pay online.

The West Country region
Great for surfers, golfers, walkers, cyclists, nature lovers and country pub enthusiasts! Great beaches abound as do beautiful coastal walks and challenging cycling routes. Golf courses are plentiful and stunning many with dramatic coastal backdrops.
Situated in North Devon, along England's western coastline, lie some of Europe's finest and cleanest beaches, ideal for both families with children and water sports enthusiasts. The village of Woolacombe can be found along this spectacular golden coastline of soft sandy beaches, flanked by the dramatic headlands of Baggy Point and Morte Point.
Almost three miles of golden sands stretch from Putsborough in the south to Woolacombe village itself offering plenty of space for everybody. Bathing is particularly safe in the shallow waters which are patrolled by lifeguards during the main summer season.
The small settlement of Mortehoe is a pretty stone built village mentioned in the Doomsday Book. The village features several tea rooms and pubs, a thirteenth century church and Mortehoe Heritage Centre which recounts the areas rich maritime history. Mortehoe is also the starting point for many scenic walks along this dramatic stretch of coastline. Just north of the village and reached only on foot, is Rockham Beach lying at the base of the 100 ft cliff, an ideal location for a peaceful day on the beach. A picturesque village on a surf spot, what more could you want!
The area is popular with surfers, walkers, golfers, horse riders, cyclists and nature lovers.
The North Devon Area Gateway to the Heritage Coast. In an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, nestling snugly amongst the rugged cliffs of the majestic Atlantic coast lies the town of Ilfracombe. The beautiful and breathtaking scenery of the North Devon coast surrounds this charming natural harbour.
The resort has been popular since the 1830's when the Victorians started to visit the area and much of the architecture today is a reminder of the Victorian era. Many of the large, elegant buildings, have since been converted into quality hotels.
The town has grown up around an ancient harbour where today fishing vessels share anchorage with pleasure craft, and from where the M.S. Oldenburg regularly sails to Lundy Island, twelve miles off the coastline. With its array of shops, cafes and bars, Ilfracombe has an almost continental atmosphere.
Ilfracombe is the base for many varied festivals. The town has a growing reputation for its floral displays and has been the proud winner of many coveted awards in the “Britain in Bloom” Competition. Each year the streets are awash with colour from June to October with baskets, tubs and planters everywhere.
Things To Do North Devon has a wealth of things to do during your stay. With some of the best beaches in Europe, including some of the finest surfing beaches, you can either relax and sunbath or take part in exhilarating water sports.
