Spacious beach house with games room and garden, steps from Woolacombe Beach
Shimmer and Gloss, Woolacombe is perched above the sea in a glorious location with stunning coastal views. Make yourself at home on the squishy sofa in front of the fireplace or head into the sun room to check the view through the telescope provided. There are more stunning beach views from the pine table in the dining area, warmed by a two-way logburner. The adjoining black and white kitchen is fully equipped for everything from quick snacks to family feasts. Wake up to wonderful Devonshire views from the master bedroom with ensuite. There’s another double, twin and a bunk room to sleep ten and a family bathroom. Lawned gardens include a play area and slide.
The outdoor deck puts you high above the sandy beach with wonderful views. Plan to pop a cork and enjoy evenings on the swing seat while kids amuse themselves on the table football game.
Shimmer and Gloss is a short walk from award-winning Woolacombe Beach. Stop for breakfast at the Beachcomber Cafe before heading onto the golden sand and surf. The bay is popular for kayaking, stand-up paddleboarding and rock pooling too. The small coastal town has several pubs and eateries on the doorstep. Ramble along the coastal path to pretty Mortehoe or cycle along the traffic-free Tarka Trail. Horse riding and hang gliding are available for more adventurous visitors. Ilfracombe (five miles) is a bustling town with shops, parks, a theatre, restaurants and boat trips from the harbour. Kids will love the Wildlife and Dinosaur Park at Combe Martin.
