How to get there

• M5 Junction 27. A361 towards Tiverton and Barnstaple.
• At Barnstaple follow signs to Braunton and Ilfracombe (still A361) taking you through a series of roundabouts round town.
• Continue on this road through Braunton towards Ilfracombe until you get to a roundabout with signs left to Woolacombe and go straight over to Ilfracombe dropping down a large hill.
• As you go down the hill you pass a lot of guest houses and the road levels and narrows. You come to a junction of 4 roads.
• Turn (second) left here up Church hill -steep road with church on right. (To make this turn you have to go straight ahead and round the mini roundabout then back on yourself and turn right )
• After 100m take first left into Belmont road.
• Continue along this road for about 3/4 mile- it becomes Slade road (no rd.sign)
• You will see a row of Victorian cottages on your right after a stretch with no houses on it. There are no houses opposite the cottages.
• Laundry Cottage is at 61 Slade road - about 3/4 along the row, with a dry stone wall and iron gate.
