Horizon - Combe Martin, Ilfracombe, Devon, England - Sleeps 8


Drift off to sleep to the sound of the waves lapping against the beach, and wake up to the sight of the sparkling clear waters beckoning you from the cottage - a slice of seaside heaven perfectly packaged in a relaxed yet luxurious wrapper.

Locations don't get much better for a seaside retreat than this impressive holiday home in the picturesque North Devon village of Combe Martin. Exceptional both in terms of its quality and location, Horizon is idyllically placed in a quiet spot opposite Newberry Beach with direct access onto the South West Coastal Path.

With plenty of living space spread out across three floors, Horizon is a magnificent Victorian property comfortably sleeping eight guests in four bedrooms. Its practical layout with two bedrooms (plus bathrooms) on the first and second floors lends itself well to two families wanting to holiday together, as well as groups of friends or one large family.

Inside the property there are three modern stylish shower/bathrooms, a fabulous sitting room with open fire and sea views, a kitchen equipped with everything needed to cater for the whole party, and space in the dining room for long leisurely suppers. Off-road parking for two cars is available (a rarity in Combe Martin!) and a terrace overlooking the sea at the front of the property provides the perfect place for catching the late afternoon sun - what better place for a 'G&T' as the sun sets or alfresco meal.

Combe Martin is a picturesque seaside village on the edge of Exmoor National Park. Sitting in North Devon and just three hours by car from the Midlands, Birmingham or London, you can very quickly getaway and be relaxing beside the sea. With a good range of cafes, shops and award winning beaches, it's a highly desirable holiday destination at any time of the year.

For those who like to keep active, you have miles of coastal walks to explore from the front door, along with a stunning coastline for kayaking and water sports. Head inland to Wistlandpound Reservoir with its way-marked walks, water sports and trout fishing (permits available), or hire a bike and explore the Tarka Trail.

The area also offers an abundance of attractions for day trips out. Visit the seaside resorts of Croyde (great for surfers), Woolacombe and Ilfracombe with its pretty harbour and Damien Hirst's highly acclaimed restaurant. Take a boat trip from Ilfracombe to see the puffins on Lundy Island; or head to Lynmouth and take the cliff-top railway across to Lynton. Combe Martin Wildlife and Dinosaur Park and The Big Sheep are also a must for the younger party members and sure to be a holiday highlight.
