Sitting in an elevated position half a mile from the centre of Ilfracombe and boasting amazing views is Farthings Nest – a fantastic retreat for couples wanting to explore North Devon. Beautifully renovated, this cosy ground floor apartment has a patio directly outside the living room which overlooks the garden, across the town and toward the Torrs which has a zig-zag walk to the top of the hills carved into the cliff face by the Victorians. Inside the apartment, the spacious open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner has a couple of large, comfy settees (one of which is a sofabed for alternative sleeping arrangements), a 40" flat screen Smart WiFi TV with Blue- ray disc player, a dining table for four people and a modern, well-equipped kitchen. A useful storage cupboard houses the washing machine and tumble dryer. A spacious bedroom and huge bathroom with a shower over the bath complete the accommodation. Outside, there is a patio directly outside the living room with furniture, with the rest of the garden being shared with The Farthings upstairs and the apartments can be rented with The Farthings (FARTHI) for larger groups of 10 people. Farthings Nest is approx. half a mile up the hill from Ilfracombe's main High Street. The town has a delightful mix of Victorian and Regency architecture, pretty harbour, independent shops, restaurants, cafes and pubs. The harbour, along with Damien Hirst’s bronze statue Verity and the Tunnels Beaches, is well worth seeing along with a visit to the award-winning Ilfracombe Aquarium, fascinating Ilfracombe Museum, Larkstone Leisure Park, Hele Cornmill and Chambercombe Manor - one of Britain's most haunted houses.

We spent a delightful week at the Farthings Nest in September, it was an ideal place to have a base to explore the north Devon coast. The accommodation was perfect in every way, very clean and well equipped with a spacious layout. The private patio area was a real bonus especially as we had such good weather, and we spent every evening with a glass of wine, watching the sun go down over the sea. Steph and Mick were excellent hosts, whilst we had our privacy, they made a point of welcoming us when we arrived and were attentive throughout our stay. This is definitely a place which we would return to. Mrs & Mrs Willcox
We were delighted with this holiday residence overlooking Ilfracombe. The rooms were clean and very tastefully appointed. Scones, jam and cream were left for us which was a very thoughtful, personal touch that tasted delicious! The owners made a point of introducing themselves and seeing to any minor issues/questions that cropped up. We'd definitely like to book again in the future.
Owners were extremely helpful and friendly. Everything was excellent and I would highly recommend this property.
Thank you so much for the warm welcome to our honeymoon! The apartment was everything we could have wished for - and more besides. Introducing Paul to North Devon was made so much easier by yourselves and this wonderful place. We shall return...
Enjoyed our week here, very comfortable and well equipped apartment. Thank you for the cream tea and flowers. Lovely views from the apartment, it would be nice to stay here when we could sit in the garden and enjoy the scenery. I didn't realise North Devon was so hilly.
Very comfortable home from home property
we love this cottage next year will be 6th time at Farthings nest. I need to sort out travelling as the busses are a struggle .perhaps a train x The owners are very nice very kind also.
Back again after a manic year, busy holiday season also Church life. I love it here, 5th year but still want to come back.
The property was excellent,well equipped and clean. The views over Ilfracombe and the sea were enjoyed while having a drink in the garden.
Lovely Self Catering accommodation. One of the best we have stayed in.
Really enjoyed our week here. Scenery beautiful, made even more so by the excellent weather. One of the best holiday homes we have stayed in, clean and tidy and well equipped. Thanks for the welcome pack, the scones and clotted cream went down very well. Enjoyed plenty of walks - The Torrs, Hillsborough to Hele Bay and Capstone Hill. Views of Ilfracombe wonderful. Further afield, Valley of Rocks, Saunton Sands well worth it. Only sorry we couldn't stay longer. Thanks to Steph and Mick for being so welcoming.
Great two weeks. One of the best places to stay. Thank you for the Cream Tea and flowers. Very enjoyable walks at Mortehoe, Lee Bay and Baggy Point. Otter cycle hire very good value for Tarka Trail. Thank you Steph and Mick for being very welcoming. Hope to see you next year.
Farthings nest is probably the best equipped and furnished holiday property that we have stayed in. As stated by previous customers the cream tea and flowers were very much appreciated. We had a very enjoyable 2 weeks there walking the coast path and visiting National Trust and RHS properties leaving us worn out but very relaxed. The only drawback for non walkers is the steep walk back from town, other than that it is in a very convenient position with Tesco, just up the road, and for driving to various attractions easy access to main routes. Steph and Mick were perfect hosts, not intrusive but there if you need them. We would highly recommend Farthings Nest if you plan visiting North Devon.
This is the best self catering accommodation that we have ever stayed in and we have stayed in many over the years. The owners were very friendly and helpful. The view was magnificent.
Thank you for this lovely stay and the cream tea and flowers. We've had a lovely week with perfect weather - except the fog yesterday which seemed to stay put! This is a brill apartment with everything and more provided. North Devon has been beautiful to explore - Thank you. Adam and Leia
We've had such a wonderful week and are sad to be leaving . It's a proper home away from home and everything we could possibly want was here. Being back in North Devon has brought back so many happy childhood memories. I'll be recommending here to my parents and can't wait to come back. Thank you. Sara and Joe
