We had a really wonderful weekend in this beautiful house. Cosy log fires during the windy storms and beautiful coastal walks in the post storm sunshine. A light, bright and very stylishly decorated house with lovely artwork and creative furniture around every corner. The beds were extremely comfortable and the house was equipped with everything we needed - a home...

We booked this property expecting awful weather, so the house itself had to be good. We were not disappointed. It was stylish and comfortable without losing any of its Victorian character. There was loads of space for 12 people ( age range 15 - 94), it was spotlessly clean and well equipped. It was warm and cosy despite it being...

Management response:

Thanks so much for taking the time to review The Quarry, I really appreciate it. We're delighted you had a good stay & enjoyed the house. Best wishes, Kirstie.

We rented this property for an extended family reunion. 10 adults, 7 kids ages 5-15. The property is located on Torrs Park, which is a pretty chic area of Ilfacrombe, with other nice larger houses around it. It is also on a very quiet street. The first thing you have to know is that the pitch of the driveway is...

About the neighborhood
lfracombe is in North Devon - a beautiful and unspoilt part of the South West. North Devon is famous for its stunning golden sand beaches and clear surf - such as the 3 miles of beach at Woolacombe Bay, just a 10 min drive from The Quarry. Book a surf lesson, or just hire some equipment.

There's also Croyde bay and Saunton Sands - both boasting fine sand and turquoise seas.

At the end of the road, just a 5 min walk from the house, you'll find Tunnels Beaches. This is a privately owned beach (you pay a small entrance fee) with a large Victorian bathing pool carved into the rocks.

Wild Exmoor, with ponies, pubs & dramatic scenery, is just a short drive.
Getting around
From The Quarry it's just a short walk to all the lovely cafes, restaurants, cinema, harbour & beaches. There's picturesque cliff top rambles to country pubs just out the back gate.

For great surfing, & a huge sandy beach, head to Woolacombe. A 10 min drive, but there's buses which go there from the High Street or a taxi is about £10.
Car advised
How to get there
Airport: Exeter: 41.6 mi
Railway: Barnstaple: 8.7 mi
To drive to North Devon the quickest route is to take the M5, exiting at junction 27 & then taking the A361 right through to Ilfracombe.

Whilst a car isn't crucial (you can walk to beaches, cafes & shops from the house), its great to explore further afield by car.

Easiest route by train is to take the mainline to Tiverton Parkway & then order a taxi from there to Ilfracombe. It its about an hour's drive, but if there's a few of you it's not too expensive. Barnstaple is the nearest train station, but this is a branch line from Exeter & the journey will take considerably longer. Barnstaple is about 20 mins drive away.
