The Stables provides stylish contemporary living with everything Ilfracombe has to offer on the doorstep. It is an attractive detached barn conversion set in a quiet residential section of town a short walk from the centre and its attractions. The thoughtful renovation blends much of original character with contemporary decor, with ledge and brace timber doors and slate floor tiles. Electric heating and air conditioning guarantee comfort in any weather. A roomy lounge enjoys dual aspect views over a patio out front and a fast flowing stream out back and has a double bed sofa offering alternative sleeping options. The spacious and well equipped kitchen encourages nights in, while garden furniture gives the choice of al fresco dining. Upstairs there is a stylish bedroom, which also benefits from dual aspect views and a Super King bed. A good-sized family bathroom completes the accommodation.
Ilfracombe has a delightful mix of Victorian and Regency architecture, pretty harbour, independent shops, restaurants, cafes and pubs. The harbour, with Damien Hirst’s infamous bronze statue Verity, and the Tunnels Beaches, are well worth a visit along with the award-winning Ilfracombe Aquarium, fascinating Ilfracombe Museum, Larkstone Leisure Park, Hele Cornmill and Chambercombe Manor - one of Britain's most haunted houses. A short drive takes you to Exmoor National Park, which has Europe’s very first International Dark Sky Reserve, the tallest tree in England, the highest cliffs in England, almost 250 species of bird and over 1,000 different flowering plants and grasses, the highest number of wild red deer in England and wild native ponies, perfectly adapted to the upland conditions of Exmoor. Or head west to Woolacombe, which has a three mile stretch of golden sand, which has been voted number one in the UK by TripAdvisor guests for the last two years. It also holds the England For Excellence Gold Award for best family resort and was voted the Best British Beach in the Mail On Sunday. Lifeguards ensure safe swimming during the summer
