“Great location ”
Reviewed 3 May 2017 for a stay in May 2017

We stayed in this cottage for three nights mid week in April. It's in a great location for exploring Ilfracombe. There's no parking at the cottage, but there is a long stay car park on the harbour which is about £4.50 per day. We had lovely walks with the dog and some great meals out. There's dozens of restaurants and pubs and there's a wetherspoons with a roof terrace at the centre of the town if the sun is out. Would definitely like to go back! Woolacombe is lovely too and only a short drive. The cottage itself is well equipped and had everything we needed. Our only slight gripe was the shower curtain which has been mentioned in reviews before; it blows inwards and sticks to you when you're showering which is annoying but other than that the cottage was perfect for us and very clean.

“Lovely place to discover Ilfracombe”
Reviewed 12 June 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Lovely enjoyable stay in the center of Ilfracombe, short distance to pretty much anything in Ilfracombe - Harbour/Pier, High street, Restaurants, Pubs, beach. Place was clean and comfortable, feels quite homely and a nice place to stay.

Opposite two pubs but we never had any trouble with noise or anything.

Downsides:
Shower curtain sticks to you as you shower, could do with being out more or being a screen
Would of been handy to have a freezer
The top floor where the main bedroom is located can be a tad annoying to get to if you are 5.5ft+ due to the low ceiling.

“Happy Easter at Fishermans Cottage”
Reviewed 29 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

There was four of us in our party (including teenagers) & 2 dogs. We were very happy with the cottage and the simple transaction with the owners. Upon our arrival we was greeted with Flowers, Wine, Easter Eggs, Dog Treats and a card. The cottage was clean and tidy, it has everything that you would require and was very accommodating. It was even larger than we expected.
The food at the Hele Bay restaurant/pub in walking distance from the cottage was very good. Especially the Sunday Roast! And we would also recommend a visit to Coombe Martin a neighbouring village & the Tunnel Beaches. @A trip to Woolacombe's a must also.

“Great Four Night Stay”
Reviewed 25 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

people found this review helpful

We've just come back from a great stay at Fishermans Cottage. Great quirky two bed cottage. Perfect location right in the centre of Ilfracombe. Everything on your door step. Local bars, restaurants, cafe's and shopping centre. The house is directly in front of a couple of bars but we didn't have any issues with noise or privacy.

The cottage has three floors. Long hall way leading to Kitchen and dining room on ground floor. Second bedroom and lounge in the middle. And main bedroom and bathroom on the top floor.

The Hall way has lots of coat hooks for tidy storage of jackets etc. The kitchen is fully equipped with all the crockery and utensils you'd need. Also has washing machine if having a long stay. Dining room looks just like a beach hut with lots of the owners personal belongings. Lounge v comfy with two leather couches, tv and the bt broadband and codes can be found here. Great shower in bathroom. Fresh linen on all beds with loads of storage.

No parking at the property but you can get parking pass for £12.10 for fours nights or £20.00 for a week from tourists info to use at long stay car parks. There are two which we used which were just 5-7 minute walk away from house. The parking pass can also be used when visiting local areas like Barnstaple and Lynton so good value. There is a short stay car park behind the house but this seemed more expensive at £1 per hour apart from 6pm-8am just £1, or £35 for the week.
