We are open all year for self-catering long or short breaks. Children are welcome and so are dogs & many other pets (excluding cats).

Map reference: SS 547482  Lat: 51.21459 Long: -4.08146

By Road:
Leave the M5 at junction 27 and take the A361 North Devon Link road until you reach North Aller roundabout, just north of South Molton. Here you turn right (heading north) on to the A399. Continue on this road through Combe Martin towards Ilfracombe. After you pass Watermouth Castle on your left we are the next driveway, about quarter of a mile further on on the right - the sea side of the road! There is a hanging sign at the top of the driveway.

Alternatively, from Barnstaple follow the A39 through Braunton to Ilfracombe (where the road number changes to become the A399) and straight on to Hele Bay, climb the hill out of Hele Bay (travelling towards Combe Martin) and you will pass Ilfracombe Golf Club on your right, then the Coastguards Cottages on your left. After that we are the next driveway on the left, the sea side of the road.

By Public Transport:
Train to Barnstaple and then bus to Combe Martin. We are half way between Ilfracombe and Combe Martin but 1/2 mile from a bus stop. It may be better to get a taxi to us from Ilfracombe.
