Watermouth Cove self catering holiday Cottages

Situated on the beautiful North Devon coast Watermouth Cove Cottages are a  group of eight pretty self catering holiday cottages. Built in the 17th century and once the coaching houses and stables of Watermouth Castle, the cottages were converted to holiday accommodation in the 1970's. Watermouth Cove Cottages are situated beside the castle grounds, just 200 yards from the cove, harbour and South West coastal path between Combe Martin and Ilfracombe on the beautiful North Devon coast. Watermouth cove cottages, set in a wooded valley and surrounded by lovely Devon countryside are an haven for a wide range of wild life including Squirrels, Foxes and many birds such as Woodpeckers, Jays, Goldfinches, Nuthatches as well as the usual Robins and Blue Tits. Buzzards regularly soar over the cottages and Egrets are regular visitors to Watermouth Castle pond and cove beach.

 

Watermouth Cove is a beautiful sea inlet, next to our holiday cottages and Watermouth Castle with a dog friendly beach. Watermouth is a rural, seaside idyll within a few minutes drive of beautiful Berrynarbor and the beach resorts of Combe Martin and Ilfracombe with their wide choice of pubs, restaurants and local attractions. For those who wish to bring a pet, most pubs and restaurants are dog friendly.

 

Local attractions

Watermouth Cove holiday Cottages are ideally situated for a wide range of local attractions and activities to suit people of all ages. Numerous local attractions include Watermouth Castle, Combe Martin Wildlife & Dinosaur Park, Exmoor Zoo, Ilfracombe Marine Aquarium & Tunnels beach, Exmoor National Park, Valley of the Rocks, Lynton & Barnstaple steam railway (Woody Bay station), Arlington Court, Chambercombe Manor, Lundy Island, RHS Rosemoor, Marwood, Heddon Hall, Broomhill gardens and Damien Hirst's giant 65ft (20mtr) tall bronze statue called Verity which now stands at the entrance of Ilfracombe harbour.

Local activities include sea and course fishing, North Devon coastal path walks, Horse riding, Sea kayaking, Golfing, Quad bikes, Paint ball, Boating and Wild life & sight seeing cruises, Surfing, Diving and Beach activities or simply just chilling out.

 

Beaches, Coves & Sea

The local North Devon coast is stunning and recognised by UNESCO and UK government as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). Nearby are the magnificent sandy surfing beaches of Woolacombe, Saunton Sands and Croyde bay which offer miles of golden sand. The beautiful rocky coves are great for walking the dog, rock pools, interesting geological rock formations and scenic rugged cliffs. The coastal path and many beaches are dog friendly. Local coves and beaches to explore include Watermouth Cove, Broad Sands, Combe Martin, Newberry, Hele Bay and Wild Pear beaches.

 

Exmoor National Park

Watermouth Cove and Combe Martin are on the doorstep of the Exmoor national park with its spectacular sweeping moorland summits, deep wooded valleys, high sea cliffs and sheltered rocky bays.

The Exmoor National park covers 267 square miles and has a remarkable variety of flora and fauna, it is famous for its wild ponies, Red Deer and birds of prey.

The moor remains as wild and beautiful as in the days of R.D. Blackmore's Lorna Doone and with its extensive network of paths and bridle ways offers an ideal day out for tourists, walkers and horse riders.

 

Lundy Island is just off the North Devon coast and can be visited by a boat trip on the MS Oldenburg from historic Ilfracombe harbour. Lund-ey which is Norse for Puffin Island is a place of outstanding natural beauty and a nature reserve for seals, seabirds and all types of marine life.

Spectacular wildlife, coastal cruises and fishing boats trips depart daily from Ilfracombe.

For those interested in diving, the rugged North Devon coast from Foreland to Hartland Point has numerous recorded ship wrecks with 137 of these around Lundy. In 1906 the battle ship HMS Montagu ran aground on Lundy and its wreck lies off the south west tip of the island.

 

Photography and Painting

The North Devon coast is recognised by UNESCO and UK government as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), remember to bring your camera. 

The North Devon coast offers a wide range of scenery from spectacular rugged coast, high cliffs, large estuaries, long golden beaches, to deep valleys, fast streams, wild moorland, old cottages and villages.

The area is rich in its variety of animal, bird and plant life.

The changing seasons bring about a continuous change to the natural colours, moods and light intensity not to mention spectacular  sunsets and rises.

The area is a photographers and artists dream at any time of year so don't forget your equipment.

 

The Autumn & Winter Months

Autumn & winter months are mild in North Devon and it is an ideal place to take a relaxing break. A walk along a quiet beach or on the moors with the dog followed by an evening in an old country pub with its warm log fire makes for a wonderful change to the bustle of city life.

 

The Sky at Night

The dark North Devon winter nights offer the astronomers amongst us some of the clearest views of the stars and planets in the UK. Exmoor National Park has just been designated an International Dark Sky Reserve, the first in Europe and only the second place in the world to achieve this official status. The hills around Combe Martin are high, and with virtually no light pollution make great vantage points from which to observe the night sky. Holdstone Down a short drive from the cottages is 1146 ft  (approx 350 mtr) high with an easy access to the summit. Remember your binoculars or telescope.

 

Further Afield

From the North Devon coast it is just over an hour's drive to resorts such as Bude, Minehead, Dunster and Torquay and less than two hours drive to Cornwall's Eden Project and The Lost Gardens of Heligan.

The Dartmoor National park with its rugged granite tors, historic Postbridge, Uncle Tom Cobley's Widecombe in the Moor and Okehampton castle are just over an hour away.

Historic Exeter with its large cathedral, shopping centres, museum etc can be visited by rail on the beautiful Tarka line from Barnstaple making for an interesting day out.
