Crab Cottage Patio
Angela Holmes
My partner and I spent an amazing week in Crab Cottage and the beautiful resort of Ilfracombe. From the moment we walked though the door we felt completely at home.
The cottage is located on a wonderfully quiet and historic street a few minutes walk to anything and everything in Ilfracombe - harbour, restaurants, beach, shops etc, as well as being perfect for the Devon coastal walk. Every room was so well equipped, with fantastic décor, comfortable furniture (particularly the beds, which in my experience is rare for a cottage hire), and lots of space. Plenty of books, games, dvds etc are provided for rainy days and evenings. The complimentary week's car parking permit we received allowed us to park in various car parks and saved us lots of money. A really nice touch.
My lasting memory will be the cottage garden which truly was a lovely surprise. A gorgeous little patio area where we ate many meals as well as a large lawn with spectacular views over the harbour and out to sea. It stayed sunny throughout our stay and we spent many hours over the week in the garden and its picturesque surroundings. A genuine sun-trap.

Can't wait to stay there again!

My husband, 8 year old daughter and dog have stayed at Crab Cottage twice now - once at October half term and once at May half term - and we plan to go back again before too long.

The cottage is beautifully decorated and furnished, and so well equipped that it is truly a home from home. There are books, games and DVDs for rainy days. The large garden is perfect for an afternoon cream tea while watching the seagulls and there is a great view of Verity down at the harbour.

The cottage is in a great location - walking distance from the Harbour, the High Street (where there are shops, cafes, pubs and a cinema), the swimming pool and much more. For sunny days, there is Tunnels Beaches, with the tidal pool, as well as the other Ilfracombe beaches for rock pooling and scrambling. Woolacombe is a short drive away for bodyboarding.

The parking permit provided means that you can park the car at a number of North Devon car parks for nothing. You could easily find enough in Ilfracombe to keep you busy for a week without ever getting in the car. The quirky museum is definitely worth a visit!

If you want a north Devon holiday with lots of variety and fantastic accommodation, Crab Cottage is the place for you!
