Centrally located, Autumn Leaves is set in a conservation area on a hillside a short walk  from  the famous Tunnels Beaches. From here, a pleasant half mile stroll will take you past Wildersmouth Beach and on towards the popular heritage harbour area of this delightful Victorian coastal town.  Here you will find shops, galleries, cafes, pubs and restaurants as well as fishing and pleasure trips. Damian Hirst’s ‘Verity’ sculpture provides an imposing sight at the entrance to the harbour. For active visitors the rugged terrain and coastal scenery of the National Trust Torrs and South West Coast Path are very nearby, whilst the indoor swimming pool and fitness centre and popular 18 hole Golf Club are both just a few minutes’ drive away.

This coastal themed North Devon holiday home is spacious for six guests and also has plenty of outside seating areas to relax, whilst the elevated position provides views from parts of the garden towards the coastline beyond the harbour.

The heart of this home is its open plan kitchen/living/dining room providing a sociable space for preparing meals and entertaining your family and friends. The comfortable sofas nestle by the wood burner, perfect after a spring or autumn day out exploring all that the North Devon and Exmoor coast and countryside has to offer.  The accommodation definitely offers flexible sleeping options for up to six guests with four bedrooms available. Open stairs from the living space lead to a half-landing with  a twin bedroom (which can also be set as a Superking – (please notify us of configuration required at the time of booking) and an attractive large family bathroom complete with underfloor heating, luxurious corner bath and walk-in shower. On the first floor are three stylish bedrooms. The master bedroom has a king-size bed plus ensuite shower room. The other two rooms comprise a double and single. All the bedrooms have plenty of storage space.

Please note: the house only sleeps up to six but has 4 bedrooms for flexible sleeping arrangements. 

Accessed by 25 steps up from the road/garage is the main front patio where you can enjoy al fresco dining with a cool glass of wine after a day’s adventure. The garden has a second seating area to the side and in addition to this up 30 steps from the front patio is a garden bench next to the small pond (fitted with a safety grill) at the very top of the garden. The lawns and borders are steep so please take care.  Due to the steep lawns and garden borders and open plan living the property is not suitable for very young children or babies.

This cottage was absolutely stunning. From the second we stepped inside, it was like home. The whole family loved it, from our 9yr old to the 15yr old; all of us. It was exceptionally clean, not a speck of dust anywhere; beautifully decorated, everything you could possibly need was there. We stayed for the 2019 Christmas week and there were some lovely decorations put in the cottage that were beach themed as well. We would have loved to have stayed for more than the week we booked, and would not hesitate to book this wonderful place again. They have thought of everything, it is really swept up, and the owners should be extremely proud of it. The ease of everything, from getting into the place, the garage parking, the ease of adjusting the heating, simply everything about the place was perfect. We literally can’t recommend it enough. The only thing I would say, if you can't manage stairs, this isn’t the place for you as there are a number of steps to get up to the house. Not a problem for us however and it is so worth it for the incredible views over Ilfracombe! Just gorgeous.
