Manor Cottage is a grade two listed building built in the early 19th Century.

Sitting in prime position on the coastal path on the quiet side of the harbour, the cottage overlooks the beach and lifeboat station.

Boasting a large terrace, it’s a great spot to watch the world go by and, if you’re lucky, a lifeboat launch.

Manor Cottage is a traditional home with modern features and a very well equipped kitchen. Garage parking included.

More Details
Harbour beach is only a 2 minute stroll from the cottage and overlooks the lifeboat station. Practice nights are usually Thursdays from 6pm. A real treat to see the lifeboat crew launch the lifeboat and carry out practice drills. A great view of this from the terrace.

Ilfracombe is a very relaxed, friendly town with many independent shops, cafes, pubs, ice cream parlours, pasty shops, chip shops and restaurants - plus a Lidl! Most of which can be reached within a 2-10 minute stroll is the cottage. There is also a large Tesco superstore a 5 minute drive from the cottage.

The cottage is situated on the coastal path. You can take a beautiful walk around the coast to Lee Bay to the West and stop for lunch in the very old and quaint Grampus Inn which has a consistently good contemporary menu (1hr 30mins walk - Grampus will order you a taxi back!) Or an easier Easterly walk to Hele Bay. You can also walk to the top of Hillsborough in around 20 minutes - the hill to the right as you look out from the terrace known locally as ‘The Elephant’

During Easter and throughout the summer, you can take boat ride right from the harbour. Lots of different trips available including dolphin and seal watching. You can also book a trip to Lundy Island.

There is a lovely swimming pool only a 10 minute walk along the coast.

Pets are very welcome.

Ilfracombe is a great place to stay. The high street has many independent shops, cafes and art galleries and a wide range of restaurants including The Olive Branch which has been awarded a Michelin Star.

The cottage is situated in one of the oldest parts of Ilfracombe, known as the artisan quarter and the original part of the cottage dates back to the 1820s. It's situated in a quiet part of town away from the hustle and bustle with no road noise and very few people passing by.

Getting Around
There is a garage attached to the cottage and getting around by car is very easy. There are buses leaving from the town quite regularly, travelling to various destinations around North Devon. You can book a ferry to the Lundy island which leaves direct from the harbour. There is also a land train during school holidays which travels around the town which is good for getting your bearings and for people with decreased mobility.

During the summer months of July and August we take bookings for check in / check out on Mondays and Fridays only. The rest of the year we are flexible but require a three night minimum stay throughout the year.

We have just had a 5 day break at Manor Cottage and it was fantastic. Beautiful warm 3 bedroom cottage very tastefully furnished with a large balcony overlooking the sandy beach and harbour and a garage to park the car. A few minutes walk to the local bars and restaurants and dog friendly . Also all the restaurants we ate at were dog friendly too. A brilliant bonus for us was watching the lifeboat being launched for a practice run so we sat on the terrace and enjoyed that. It really is a fabulous property with everything so close by. Best holiday let in Ilfracombe 😎😎😎😎

Pretty much perfect

The location is amazing, being so close and yet set back from the ever-changing harbour. Plus the house has a flow that the photos can’t quite capture.

An Absolute Gem

Our second stay at Manor Cottage and just as delightful as the first! Perfect location with veiws over the Harbour and a great terrace to do so from. Beautiful Cottage that is fully equiped and, you can tell, loved by the owners. A lovely bustling harbour with a mix of great food places, and modern sea side shops and a new watersports and restaurant just along the way.
