Smithy Cottage sleeps up to four guests and is one of the smaller cottages at Lower Aylescott, providing self-catering perfect for families who want to relax and unwind in glorious Devonshire countryside.
Sitting on the outskirts of the vibrant village of West Down, the cottage is within walking distance of a village shop selling a good range of provisions, and the popular Crown Inn pub that dates back to the 17th Century serving good food and ale.
An excellent base for exploring the many attractions of North Devon, Smithy Cottage is just a short car ride from the fabulous award winning beaches of Croyde, Saunton and Woolacombe, popular with surfers and families alike. Combe Martin is also within easy reach as is the pretty coastal town of Ilfracombe. Full of Victorian charm, Ilfracombe has a superb range of shops, pubs and restaurants (including Michelin star ones for fine dining), the famous historic Tunnels beaches and fishing trips from the harbour.
Exmoor National Park offers fantastic opportunities for those who enjoy walking, as does the South West Coastal Path which is guaranteed to burn off some holiday calories and provide stunning seascapes along the way. There are also golf courses locally, horse riding and tennis courts at Ilfracombe, as well as a swimming pool.
