Dog friendly seaside holiday house in Ilfracombe sleeping 12 with a games area and bar, for family holidays on the north Devon coast
Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends. Epchris House, Ilfracombe, Devon, sleeps 2 - 12 in 6 bedrooms.
Epchris House is a large seaside self catering holiday house in Ilfracombe which sleeps 12 in a total of 6 rooms, all en suite barring one twin room which has a private bathroom across the hallway. Set in a lovely peaceful location, yet close to Ilfracombe sea front and harbour, the house retains lots of original features and has far-reaching views.
Guests can enjoy nearly 2 acres of stunning gardens, a large sun terrace (which is also pedestrian access for owner's accommodation and staff/customer loo), a children's outdoor play area, plus a generous-sized kitchen/dining room to seat 12 and a large lounge/bar/games room.
Epchris House is set in the tranquil Wilder Valley, but only a 5 minute walk to the South West Coast Path or Tunnels Beaches, 10 minutes to the sea front and on from there to Ilfracombe Harbour and the famous eateries of St James' Place and Fore Street. Within a 15 minute drive is the award-winning golden sand and surfing beach at Woolacombe and it's less than a half hour drive to Exmoor National Park.
The house is ideal for family groups and gatherings of friends. Epchris House is not a party venue or available for groups of single sex young adults. We are child-friendly for age 5+. There is private off-road parking for 6 guest vehicles. There is an unusually deep swimming pool at the property which is not available for use. The gate to the pool is locked and the area is secured behind a tall fence and is dangerous and strictly off-limits. There is also a stream bordering the property, accessible through a locked gate leading from the outdoor play area.
Please note that the site is shared with a detached owner's cottage & apartment attached to the end of the main house (both accessed via the sun terrace) and a scuba diving company which operates March-October and is the pick-up point for an e-bike hire company. Most of the divework is conducted off-site, but sometimes a diving vehicle will be loading and unloading gear from the diving trailer which is parked on-site and small groups of customers may walk down the drive to the dive building, bike hire and pool area.
