Overview

Blare Cottage is a lovely self catering property set in Lower Aylescott, West Down near to Ilfracombe.

As you enter Blare Cottage there is a large open plan lounge area with flat screen tv and comfortable seating (one of which is a sofa bed to allow extra sleeping capacity). Off this you have a fully equipped kitchen with dishwasher, washer/dryer, fridge, cooker etc.

Upstairs there is a bathroom with bath and shower together with the two bedrooms. One is a double and the other a twin room.

The extensive grounds form a particularly attractive feature of the property. There are two coarse fishing lakes stocked with carp, bream, tench, roach and rudd which is a great attraction to many guests. Guests are welcome to walk in the meadow which runs along the valley bordered by the stream which is kept mown and forms an extensive recreation area.

Lower Aylescott Cottages are carefully converted stone barns retaining original beams and stonework. All the cottages are south facing over the meadow and down to the lakes. Outside the patio terraces are decked with hanging baskets and flower pots and offer a very pleasant area to soak up the sunshine.

The village of West Down is a lovely stroll away being just under a mile. West Down Village is noted for its footpaths, all well maintained and clearly marked. There are many fine walks to and from the village and some circular ones.

Ilfracome town is just a 10 minute drive away with its bustling shops and harbour and is well worth a visit. Braunton again a 10 minute drive away is the largest village in the area and has won many awards for its flower displays during the summer. At both places you will find an array of shops, pubs and restaurants. If you fancy a trip to a bustling market town, Barnstaple is great for shopping and is famous for the Pannier Indoor Market offering all kinds of produce.

Summary:

This is a lovely 2 bedroom self catering cottage with central heating nestled in the beautiful area of West Down, near Ilfracombe, North Devon. The grounds also have 2 fishing lakes.

Stayed Saturday 16 July 2011
Property provided us with everything we needed for our stay.There was a lovely large mowed area below the property with two lakes and some games for the children. The area was very quiet and the village pub in west down half a mile away was a great place to finish the day with good food and ale.
