Old Maids Cottage - Lee Bay, Nr Ilfracombe, Devon, England - Sleeps 6

Old Maids Cottage

Old Maids Cottage sleeps six guests and offers all the charm of country life in a stunning coastal setting. A quintessentially English thatched 'chocolate box' cottage, Old Maids sits in an enviable position in the pretty village of Lee Bay on the glorious North Devon coastline. It has been completely and carefully restored as a luxurious, open plan style, holiday home for six people in three double bedrooms – two of which are en-suites plus there is a third family bathroom.

You’ll enjoy its picture perfect thatched roof with arched leaded windows and the contemporary feel of its interior that just oozes the holiday feeling from the moment you arrive.

Old Maids nestles in the centre of Lee, a short stumble to an old low-beamed smugglers pub with a genteel ambience and good reputation for food as well as being child and dog friendly. The bay itself is about a ten to fifteen minute stroll further down the lane (there’s a handy car park for those preferring the two minute drive). At low tide it is rock-pooling heaven so pack the shrimp nets! Lee itself is on the coastal footpath offering inspiring scenic walks along the coast between Ilfracombe and Mortehoe.
