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.
