House
Large family friendly holiday home sleeping 13 close to Ilfracombe, the beach and the South West Coastal Path

Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends.
The Quarry, Ilfracombe, Devon, sleeps 10-13 in 7 bedrooms.

The Quarry was built in 1890 as a holiday home for an Admiral and his family. The large detached house still maintains many impressive original features, but has been sympathetically brought up to date using quality materials by the current owners during a 4 year restoration programme to produce a luxurious and comfortable home, with all the conveniences you would expect.

The Quarry is perfect for a family get together/celebration, a gathering for special birthdays, or reunion with friends. We do take hen weekends, but I'm afraid we don't take stags.

This much loved family home has a very special feel, with a great sense of space and light, and affording amazing views of the sea from its fantastic position nestled high in the hills above Ilfracombe. With 7 bedrooms sleeping 13 (plus 2 extra single futon beds), spacious and sunny interiors, outstanding views, pretty and extensive gardens, log fire, Aga, detached vine room, sea-view terrace accessed directly off a magnificent 34ft sitting/dining room, loads of privacy, full Sky package and Wifi, this is a wonderful place for a holiday with family or friends.

Children are welcome at The Quarry. We have a very large, safe enclosed sea-view terrace off the sitting room/dining room perfect for small children. There is even a handmade Wendy house in the garden, and a small fish pond off the kitchen. The back garden with its terraces and secret spots is great for older kids.

Tunnels beach is just a 5 minute walk, Damien Hirst's restaurant (no 11 The Quay) overlooking the picturesque harbour is a 15 minute walk and the 3 miles of golden sand and highly regarded surf of Woolacombe a 10 minute drive. The house itself backs onto the South West coastal path, so you can walk the dramatic cliffs and explore the coastline just outside the back gate.

Facilities

A huge room with French doors at both ends, extra size oven and grill, Miele gas hob, Gas 2 oven AGA, dishwasher, American fridge/freezer, larder.
Wonderful dining room/library which joins the sitting room. French doors onto sun trap sea-view terrace. Antique oak table and chairs to seat 12.
Lovely light room, with huge windows onto the sea view terrace. 3 luxury leather sofas, 2 armchairs, open fire, original artworks and beautiful decor.
42 inch plasma flat screen TV, full Sky package, DVD, iPod dock, CD/radio in dining room. Radio in kitchen. TV and DVD in top floor en suite bedroom.
We have broadband WiFi.
There is no games room.
Open fire in the sitting room (logs and kindling supplied). Radiators in all rooms.
7 large bedrooms in total: 4 King size (2 of them en suite), 1 double, 1 twin and 1 single. Nearly all rooms have stunning views. 2 additional futons.
We supply good quality linen for all beds, along with soft towels (bath and hand), kitchen towels and bathmats. We don't supply beach towels.
Magnificent main bathroom with original freestanding Victorian claw foot bath. Spacious top floor bathroom (both have showers as well). 2 en suites.
Sorry, the house is not wheelchair friendly.
Great for kids. We have 2 high chairs, 2 travel cots and 2 futon bed/chairs. The front sea view terrace is fenced in and has a beautiful Wendy house.
Secret lower garden, sea view suntrap terrace off the sitting room/dining room, natural terraced back gardens (nb young kids should be supervised).
There is no swimming pool.
Parking for 3 cars up the drive by the house. Unlimited parking on the road.
Strictly no smoking in the house please.
Pets by arrangement. £25 flat charge to cover extra cleaning. All floors are either original Victorian tiles or floorboards, so pet friendly.
