    Fern Cottage sleeping up to 3 guests

    This friendly end terrace cottage is situated in the town of Ilfracombe, promising an eventful stay. Wander into the entrance hall and you will arrive at a sitting room pieced together with a pink corner sofa and vibrant cushions. Beams overlook the room for a touch of character and the quirky accessories set a pleasant overtone. Continue and you will be welcomed by a charming kitchen containing all of the essentials you may need for preparing those home cooked meals. A door leads out to the garden so you can wander into the fresh air at your own leisure. An open tread staircase leads up to a pretty and inviting single bedroom, ideal for children to sleep with pastel colours that bring a calm feel to the room. A double bedroom lies further round, boasting patterned bedding and curtains, along with a chest of drawers. This is a comforting place to sleep the night away. Neighbouring this, a shower room is elegantly designed with all white fittings for a refreshing arrangement. Once you are ready for the day, why not head outdoors to the patio area where you can enjoy a refreshing drink and plan your adventures for the week. The town of Ilfracombe has much to offer from beaches, rolling countryside, and the nearby Exmoor National Park. Whether you enjoy a gentle promenade walk around Capstone Hill, or prefer the river valleys and tranquillity of the moorland hills of Exmoor, you will find the scenery spectacular. Ilfracombe is the perfect location for a North Devon holiday.

    The town of Ilfracombe lies on a stretch of North Devon coastline, with five beaches. Ilfracombe is only a ten minute drive from Exmoor National Park, with its rolling countryside. The heritage harbour and quay are worth a visit, home to many pubs, restaurants and shops in the surrounding area. To the east of Ilfracombe are the unique villages of Lynton and Lynmouth with its clifftop railway, and to the west lie Clovelly and Hartland.

    " Big soft towels provide along with all the kitchen equipment you’ll need for a relaxing break. Perfect location for us to just leave the car for a week and walk to all the local attractions. There was mention about the church bells in another review. It wasn’t an issue at all for us. Yes they do chime on the hour every hour but we hardly noticed them, did not keep us awake. As we went in November we could park directly outside but there are parking restrictions 15th March to 31st October between 10am - 6pm, not mentioned in the description. Parking available close by so don’t let it put you off as the cottage is a perfect base for 2 adults and a fur baby. "
    Mrs Green – 1 Jul 2021
    "We think the stairs are very steep and this should be mentioned and the bin waste was an inconvenience as we put them out as asked on the Thursday night and they were not collecting and we were not left a blue bag"
    Mr Turner – 1 May 2021
    "With everything i needed for a relaxing holiday . A handy place to be near to Shops and for places to walk to and a Bus stop round the corner ."
    Mr Brouner – 1 Sep 2020
    " Although small this cottage was exceptionally clean and the facilities more than adaquate for a weeks stay for two people. The only thing that possibly let it down was the garden which could do with a lot of care and a chainsaw for a few hours !! it was almost unusable as its so overgrown and sees very little sun. The cottage is situated at the top of the High Street so easy for any supplies you might need and parking in the Brookdale car park at £20 for 7 days was a bargain as the permit allows you access to several other car parks in the area. [permit available at the Tourist Information Office] Just a couple of small mentions, the shower entrance was broken as was a drawer in the kitchen but these were very minor issues and with all the Covid restrictions in place perhaps understandable. All in all a very enjoyable stay at Fern Cottage and would like to thank the housekeeping service for clean and safe accommodation and would certainly consider a stay in the future. "

    " I think all advertising with cottages and Jordan's Glamping and Sandpiper who all seperatly advertise Fern cottage should mention it up front, as we would NOT have booked if had known beforehand. Overall Fern cottage of a good standard, but several bits around the property shabby, without the chic. Many small improvements needed throughout Fern Cottage and its garden to make it worth it. We actually rated whist there as not so good and overall we gave a very generous 5/10. "

    "Well situated for walks up to the Torrs, onto the High Street and to the sea front all within easy walking distance. The kitchen had everything I needed and the house was nicely decorated with a comfy bed. The back garden was enough space to sit outside and was mostly shady which was a nice break from the sun. This was my first visit to Ilfracombe, really enjoyed it. I would stay at this cottage again if I was to come back."

    "We enjoy sitting out of an evening, and there was a lovely private part at the bottom of the garden, but the garden is so over grown that it difficult to get to so we couldn’t use it. The cottage had everything we needed and great location with easy walking to the town. Exceptionally clean and we would stay again."

    " We had a lovely chilled holiday. The only thing that was a bit off a let down was the street parking through the day. I thought it would have been outside the cottage but it was quite often round the corner a few minutes away...maybe this should be stated in the description. Other than that I would quite happily book another holiday at fern cottage. "

    " Good selection of DVDs. Comfortable cottage, nice place to sit at the back door, quiet location. enjoyed a few coast path walks which is nearby, recommend a walk to Woolacoomve via Morthoe, or a walk to Berrynarbour via Hele to other way. Food in the George and Dragon very good - oldest inn in Ilfracombe, very friendly staff. A nice place to relax, a most enjoyable week away. "

    "..Very clean and tidy and everything you need to enjoy a stress free break...Walking distance of shops and pubs and a great heating system that heated the whole house lovely...and seeing as it was December when i stayed...was most welcome....Highly recommended."

    "Although the position of the cottage is very convenient for access to the town, there were a number of problems associated with the property. The most annoying of these was the shower tray, the drain was blocked and after the first person had had a shower, it took 40 minutes for the shower tray to empty before the next person could use it. Despite the fact that it is stated that "road side parking is available" it is only allowed during the winter months. There are car parks in the town but these proved to be expensive. In the end we went to the Tourist Information Centre (TIC) and bought a weekly pass, it is a pity that the owners did not inform us that these was available. Strangely, there are no wardrobes in the property, so there is no where to hang shirts or dresses etc. At least five of the light bulbs had blown and not been replaced. The TV is extremely small and therefore difficult to watch. There was no way of lighting the gas hob, as the sparking mechanism does not work. Lastly the garden and so called patio area is dark and very dirty. It need a good tidy up. Sandpiper, the maintenance company for the property, were extremely helpful. After a quick phone call to them, the light bulbs were replaced, a gas lighter for the cooker was provided and a plumber was sent to rectify the shower drain. They also provided a mirror for the main bedroom as there wasn't one when we arrived."
    Mr Farrimond
    "This is odd in a property where stays are a week or more. The shower is in need of a deep clean and re-grouting and re-sealing too as the mould is unsightly. The location was good but the garden is in a dire need of cutting back and is unusable which is a shame."

    "The neighbours are upset with people having bbq's at Fern Cottage and I think this needs to be made clear to holiday makers. Also, guidance on the rubbish and recycling as all places are different and have different recycling bins/containers. Our rubbish was never collected during the week we were there."
