The eight pretty cottages are set in tranquil grounds in a secluded valley adjacent to 150-year old Watermouth Castle just 200 yards from the sea. The cottages are located half way between Combe Martin and Ilfracombe on the North Devon coast near to Exmoor and golden surfing beaches.
They comprise the former coach house and stables of the castle, enclosed in their own courtyard, with a beautiful garden at the rear. Watermouth Cove Cottages provide self-contained, comfortable and well-equipped self-catering holiday homes.
The cottages all feature full cooking facilities with ample crockery, fridge [Smugglers Cove has a fridge/freezer] and immensely labour-saving microwaves and dishwashers. There is a laundry room on site with washing machines and tumble dryer, and a public payphone. Each cottage has a colour television with DVD in the lounge. The cottages are open all year including Christmas and the New year.
The cottages offer accommodation for up to eight people. Large groups of up to 40 people can be accommodated, ideal for that family reunion or for special events.
