Full Description

Our Location:

An area of outstanding natural beauty on the North Devon coast.

Romantic Watermouth Cove is a rocky inlet, situated on the unspoilt North Devon coast, two miles to the east of Ilfracombe, and two miles west of Combe Martin, close to the village of Berrynarbor.

The cove is sheltered from the prevailing south westerly winds and offers a peaceful anchorage for small boats and yachts.

Over the centuries the rugged North Devon coast with its cliffs and secluded inlets became well known area for smuggling. Watermouth Cove was an ideal isolated landing point and there are stories of its use by smugglers to avoid the ‘Revenue Men’.

The Cottages:

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.
