Number 4 Coastguard Cottages is a dreamy holiday abode with breathtaking sea views overlooking the crystal-clear waters of the Atlantic Ocean and perfectly positioned to take in the panorama both from the gorgeous garden and the house.

Situated just outside the vibrant seaside town of Ilfracombe and with the pretty village of Combe Martin a short distance away, Number 4 Coastguard Cottages is a magical place for a holiday and with direct access to the South West Coast Path the whole family will relax and re-charge in blissful surroundings.

The coastguard cottages were historically positioned for the views of the ocean and Number 4 sits in a row of immaculate cottages, beautifully kept and lovingly looked after. Step down a short flight of steps through beautifully tendered gardens to the front door and enter the gorgeous living space. The sitting-room has super comfy sofas and a Smart TV, the perfect place to either gaze out of the windows as the sun sets in the evening or to watch a movie after a busy beach day. The dining-room sits off the kitchen and has a view east over an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty that fades into the sea. This is where guests can sit and chat about the day ahead or the one that has gone before. At the rear of the house the kitchen has all the equipment you will need to cook a holiday feast, that is of course if you can tear yourself away from the stunning sea view from the kitchen window! A separate utility-room, accessed via the backdoor and down the steps outside, is home to an additional fridge, freezer, washing machine and tumble-drier.

Climb the stairs to the first floor and three bedrooms await, all dressed with luxury linens and beautifully furnished. Bedroom one has either a super-king size bed or twins depending on your requirements and a quirky feature headboard with bespoke lighting that is a real talking point as the sun sets. Bedroom two has a gorgeous king-size bed and another feature headboard makes a real statement. The third bedroom has sea views and unique twin beds, ideal for the children in the party or a small teen or adult (connected at a right angle, three-foot wide and five-foot eleven-inches long). A sleek shower-room with The Natural Spa Factory products completes the first floor, ideal for rinsing salty toes after a Woolacombe beach day!

Outside, the rear garden at Number 4 is something to behold! The expansive terraced garden has several levels, all designed to make the most of the staggeringly beautiful views. From dawn until dusk catch up on some holiday reading, dine al fresco around the fire-pit or simply sit and breathe in the panoramic views in the comfy bespoke seating area. A quaint outside cooking shelter houses a barbecue with a pizza oven next to a granite table for preparing margherita pizzas, margarita cocktails or both! With so much to offer from the doorstep this simply beautiful holiday cottage is just the place for families or friends looking for a special Devon getaway with as much sea air and immersive sea views to keep you happy all holiday.

Number 4 Coastguard Cottages is a delight but if you can drag yourself away from the dreamy view and gorgeous interiors there are, quite simply, tons of things to see and do right on the doorstep! Ilfracombe is a vibrant seaside town, just a short journey away and a great place to enjoy dining out. Take a boat trip to National Trust's Lundy Island or perhaps a RIB sea safari along the coast. Combe Martin is a charming village with a great beach, ideal for kayakers and paddle boarders with the option to venture west with or without a guide to the hidden treasure of Broadsands Cove. Surfers and kite surfers should head for the glorious beaches of Woolacombe, Saunton and Croyde where the Atlantic rollers are waiting.

There is direct access to the South West Coast Path from Number 4 so pull on your walking boots and discover the stunning scenery and cliff walks of the north coast of Devon. A stroll east to the harbour cafe (in a boat!) in Watermouth is a must and the industrious fishing bolthole of Ilfracombe Harbour is perfect for purchasing from the day's catch. For the explorers, walk the spectacular Torrs to Lee Bay, Bull Point, Rockham Bay and Morte Point. If cycling is your thing, then hop on your mountain bike and head to Exmoor where miles of bridle paths take you through stunning moorland and woods. Ride the old coastguard cliff track from Hunters Inn to the Valley of the Rocks.

The front of the cottage overlooks Ilfracombe Golf Course (boasting a sea view from every hole!) and there are several other great courses in the area.

Look out for the many roadside stalls and farm shops selling the freshest of produce, perfect for cooking a holiday meal or treat yourself to a cream tea, cream first of course, you are in Devon! However you plan to spend your precious holiday time, Number 4 is the perfect getaway at any time of year.
