Jewel Cottage is just 500 metres from the sand and shale beach at Hele Day near Ilfracombe. The beautifully renovated cottage sleeps six people in comfort with a separate lounge, dining room and kitchen – and has the added benefit of a shower room on the ground floor and bathroom with a separate shower on the first floor. The living room has a wooden floor, a gas effect wood burner, a large Smart television and plenty of comfortable chairs and settees. A slate floor and granite work surfaces add a modern touch to the kitchen which has a stunning yellow AGA (along with a separate electric cooker) and a small kitchen table. There is a separate dining room with a table large enough to seat the whole party. A useful shower room completes the accommodation downstairs, whilst upstairs, there are three bedrooms – one with zip “n” link bed for flexible sleeping arrangements - please confirm bed configuration at time of booking and a family bathroom with a separate shower cubicle.

Outside, the cottage benefits from a pretty, sunny lawned garden. Just a couple of minutes’ walk away is part sandy/part shingle beach, which is popular with families looking for a quiet day out with facilities on hand. Explore the numerous rock pools with fishing nets and discover the secret smugglers' caves. Then, at very low tide, clamber around the rocks to 'Fishing Rock' or 'Blythes Cove'. The beach is also popular with canoeists and larger ships can be viewed out to sea, so bring your binoculars. After an active morning, why not visit Hele Corn Mill, a 16th century working watermill and tearooms just 300m from the beach. Described as 'a small oasis in the village of Hele', there is something for all the family; a tour of the mill and demonstration of the 1920s National Diesel Engine for Dad; a millstone hunt and photo quiz for the kids; and a leisurely mill-made cream tea (including traditional Devonshire splits) for Mum.
