Ilfracombe, Devon, England
Laundry cottage is a cosy and charming two bedroom* Victorian terraced house in a quiet residential area on the outskirts of Ilfracombe, within walking distance (20 mins) of the town centre and famous tunnels beach.

The cottage has a lovely homely feel and lots of personal touches as it is used by its owner on a regular basis. It sleeps up to 4 adults ( double bed and bunks) plus there is a Travel cot, high chair and stairgate.The kitchen is well equipped and the cottage has FREE WIFI. There is a small sunny patio garden and covered space for hanging washing/wetsuits.

The cottage is on the South West edge of town on the road to Lee, along a rural valley with the Torrs on one side and the Cairn on the other. Access to walking on the Torrs, the Tarka trail and the coastal path is all about 100 metres up the road, as is the bus stop....

Laundry cottage is in a good, quiet location, parking was never a problem and Ilfracombe is a short drive away. We were disappointed that there was no welcome pack. Most rooms, especially the bathroom, were in need of re-decoration and the kitchen needed de-cluttering. The...More

I'm so sorry you didn't find the welcome pack, which is normally out on the desk with all the other tourist info. I'll report this and your concerns about the cleaning to the changeover service. I undertake extensive repair works each winter, the bathroom was...More

About the neighbourhood
Ilfracombe is in an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, nestling snugly amongst the rugged cliffs of the majestic Atlantic coast. The beautiful and breathtaking scenery of the North Devon coast surrounds this charming natural harbour. The harbour is now home to Verity, a stunning 20ft high bronze statue by Damien Hirst, erected in October 2012.

The town has grown up around the 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. 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 hotels. Wit...
Getting around
It's ideal to have a car to get to the beaches but you can walk into Ilfracombe easily for bars and restaurants. A cab is only £3 each way if you don't fancy the 15 min walk. If you don't drive, there is also a good local bus service to get to most places or you can hire bikes....

• 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.
