Lower Aylescott Cottages are set in a wonderful tranquil location surrounded by beautiful countryside, just outside the charming village of West Down. This small North Devon village is home to a community village shop, village pub and church and is only a short drive to the larger village of Braunton and the seaside resorts of Ilfracombe and Combe Martin. Braunton has a fantastic choice of pubs, restaurants and cafes, plus independent gift and surf shops. Ilfracombe is also getting quite a ‘foodie’ reputation and has many good-quality restaurants around Fore Street and the harbour. It also has the usual seafront attractions and is home to the historic ‘Tunnels Beaches’, Ilfracombe Aquarium and Damien Hirst’s Verity sculpture.
There is also easy access to the North Devon coastline and its glorious sandy beaches, in particular Woolacombe is very close and a popular choice for families and surfers.
For walkers and cyclists, there are miles of pathways to explore, with both The South West Coastal Path and the Tarka Trail offer miles of car free paths with some stunning scenery.
