    About this property

    The cottage has access to well-maintained grounds, which benefit from two fishing lakes and a children’s play area.
    Lower Aylescott Cottages (refs 29396, 29490, 29491, 29607, 30032 and UKC162) are located just outside the village of West Down, in the stunning North Devon countryside. The cottages are ideal for couples and smaller parties during the quieter months and are well suited for families during the school holidays. The extensive well-maintained grounds benefit from two fishing lakes and a children’s play area. There are walks around the grounds as well as some local footpaths. Lower Aylescott Cottages are all well-equipped and furnished to a good standard. The nearby village has a pub and local shop. The properties are very well-located to explore all North Devon has to offer. The renowned beach at Woolacombe is a short distance away, as well as the famous surfing beach at Croyde. For something a bit more rugged, head out to Crow Point and the sand dunes of Braunton Burrows, a Site of Special Scientific Interest. The nearest large town is the seaside resort of Ilfracombe. Enjoy an ice cream down at the harbour and see the Damian Hirst sculpture at the harbour entrance called Verity. There is also the Tunnels Beach and the Landmark Theatre, as well as a good range of shops and restaurants. Other local places of interest include Combe Martin Wildlife and Dinosaur Park, Watermouth Castle and the Lynton to Lynmouth funicular railway, which all make for a good day out. Exmoor is a short distance away and on a clear day the views can be spectacular. There are National Trust properties at Arlington and Knightshayes, and the RHS gardens at Rosemoor and Great Torrington. On site fishing is available, no licence is required, however please bring your own rods. Shop and pub 1 mile.

    "Basic but clean. Lounge looking tired though could do with a bit of a make over. Sofa’s very worn and cushions fraying. No where to put your cuppa, needs a small coffee table. A rug or two would make it feel more homely."

    "The owners have worked very hard at making this excellent accommodation and grounds immaculate. However if you are planing to go for the fishing which i did things are not quite what you may think the lake is spoilt by the amount of fry."

    "We had a great time at Smithy cottage, our host Gillian was so welcoming and gave lots of advice on places of interest. The location is perfect for visiting everything North Devon has to offer no matter the weather. The cottage itself is quite basic but well equipped, the only negative was the uncomfortable mattress in the main bedroom. I would definitely recommend Lower Aylescott as a place to stay."

    "Lovely cottage, fantastic location/surroundings. Will definitely stay again."
    Laura ‐ 15 Apr 2018
    "We had a great week at Smithy Cottage. The location is ideal for the beaches at Woolacombe, Ilfracombe and Croyde. There is also a lot to do in the area away from the beach but we never had to drive more than about 20 minutes. Highly recommend the National Trust property at Arlington Court (20 mins by car from Smithy). Our 3 year old loved all the open green space around Smithy Cottage and the childrens' play area, and the fact that there were other children staying in other cottages. The cottage itself was clean, warm and fairly well equipped. The owners were very friendly and there was a cake (and mini eggs!) waiting for us on arrival."
