Pony-trekking, surfing and golf facilities are available locally. Just a 10 minute walk from the cottage is Grunta Beach, great for rock pooling and sheltered bathing and just through the village on the way to the lighthouse is the coastal footpath down to Rockham Beach with the remains of a ship wreck still to be found. Three great pubs serving locally produced food, a Fish & Chips, Deli, two tea rooms, Post Office, village store, church and gift shop are all in the village just minutes from the cottages.
1 CRESCENT YARD (sleeps 6 in three bedrooms, the master being a brand new addition) is a gorgeous homely and stylish holiday home with parking for two cars and has a pathway behind a high lockable side gate to the rear of the house. Country peace near the seaside, a perfect combination!
The front door opens to a hallway and cloakroom/WC, with kitchen to the right and lounge/diner to the left.
The front to back double aspect kitchen is a good size and bright and cheery. Its shaker style units house full sized electric oven, hob, 50/50 fridge freezer, dishwasher, microwave, 1.5 sink, washer dryer. A breakfast table seating four is by a window that overlooks the terrace and fields beyond which is a delight in the morning light.
For those who have been before you will love the newly altered spacious lounge/diner which is both modern and traditional with a dining table for six as well as two armchairs, two occasional chairs, a large sofa, TV/DVD, coffee/ games tables, pictures and lamps. A sliding door in the patio doors opens to the path and raised terraces. This is a good family room with space for all to enjoy time together.
There are shallow steps to the first level with table and chairs and BBQ and further steps, which may not be suitable for toddlers, leading to the upper terrace and distant sea view: also accessible from the new master bedroom. There is shelter below the decking for surfboards and bicycles, with hooks for wetsuits.
Upstairs are three bedrooms.
I simply love the stylish new master bedroom and en suite with shower which has a built in wardrobe, double bed, drawers and cabinets. Patio doors lead outside to the terrace that overlooks open countryside and has a distant sea view. Ideal for that early morning coffee while reading the newspapers.
Across the landing is a really spacious twin bedded room with two wardrobes and chest of drawers. The front window overlooks the courtyard while the other offers uninterrupted views of National Trust grazing land.
An attractive single bedroom overlooking the courtyard, has a 3ft wide single bed with comfortable guest bed under that can be raised to the same height, a built in wardrobe, and chest of drawers. It shares the family bath/shower room with the twin bedded room.
This holiday home is wonderfully spacious, beautifully decorated and maintained to the highest standard.
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.
Location description from owner
The Devon region
The West Country region
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!
Mortehoe and Woolacombe
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.

North Devon also has several golf courses, with the championship courses at Saunton and the Royal course at Westward Ho! Locally we have courses at Easewell and Willingcott.
The mild climate in North Devon means we have some wonderful gardens to visit. Marwood Gardens is a delight. Arlington Court (NT) has large gardens and the house of the Chichester family. Docton Mill in Hartland is in a delightful valley. RHS Rosemoor gardens at Great Torrington have matured into a selection of specialist areas as well as the original gardens.
