A collection of idyllic self catering cottages located on the beautiful North Devon coast between Combe Martin and Ilfracombe.
The holiday cottages were built in the 17th century as coaching houses and stables of Watermouth Castle were converted to comfortable holiday accommodation. The cottages are in a wonderful location beside the former castle grounds in a secluded wooded valley, just 200 yards from Watermouth Harbour and close to the beach. Guests with dogs are most welcome. So many families have a dog and you can bring the whole family on holiday to our cottages in Watercombe Cove.
This part of the north Devon coast is in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and borders the Exmoor National Park where wild ponies still roam.
