Sitting in an elevated position half a mile from the centre of Ilfracombe and boasting amazing views is The Farthings – a fantastic home and annexe together sleeping ten people (in 2021 The Farthings will only sleep 8 - annex not available). With a hot tub on the decking and a terraced garden, this contemporary holiday accommodation provides spacious living for a large family or group of friends. Entrance is on the ground level with stairs leading up to the apartment which is then on one level. The open-plan kitchen/diner has patio doors opening out onto a wide decking with a sunken hot tub, sun loungers and a table and chairs – perfect for watching the world go by at any time of the day. The living has floor to ceiling windows to make the most of the view, a woodburning stove for cooler evenings and plenty of comfortable leather settees and chairs. All four bedrooms are beautifully decorated – two of which have en-suite facilities – and there is a family bathroom with a shower over the bath. A further bedroom is on the ground floor in the Farthings Nest Annexe along with an open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner and a bathroom - Please note the annex wont be available for 2021, so the property will sleep 8 in the 4 bedrooms within the main house.

The popular Victorian seaside town of Ilfracombe is approx. half a mile away.  Here you will find a choice of family friendly pubs, restaurants and independent shops.  Boat and fishing trips are available from the harbour where the famous Damien Hirst statue of Verity attracts much attention.  Ilfracombe also has an indoor swimming pool, golf club, aquarium and museum.  Stunning coastal walks can be enjoyed direct from the town.

Amazing! A fab holiday house - great for adults and children! Lovely views, great hot tub.

Mr Malcolm O,

The property is absolutely perfect! All of the rooms are finished to the highest standard and are just beautiful. Our parties ages were from 15-53 and it was loved by all. The view from the deck was gorgeous and the hot tub was a real treat. Fabulous holiday property, highly recommended.

Mrs Emma P,

Fabulous place with great views, in all we had fab time.

Mr Paul C,

Thank you for organising the gorgeous weather for our stay at this stunning house! What a way to spend two milestone Birthdays. Loved sipping some bubbles in the hot tub while enjoying the fantastic views. Thank you

Mr Cheryl D,

Fantastic location and views. High standard of fixtures, fittings, mattresses and bedding. The owner has obviously spent a lot of time and effort in perfecting the property. This is the best property we have ever rented.
