The hardest decision you’ll have to make here is just where to collapse into luxury. On the magnificent safari lodge style balcony? The newly-built viewing gallery? In the heated pool? Pour the bubbles, take your pick. Breathe.
This stunning home in one of the most beautiful spots on the North Devon coastline has been utterly transformed into a luxury rental for large groups. You’ll be awed by the breathtaking panoramic views of the sea, Watermouth Castle and the cliffs from a brand new level. The outdoor area is complete with viewing gallery, safari style balcony and garden room.
Picture windows in the huge, superbly well equipped L-shaped kitchen, sitting and dining room just allow you to sink into the views. Perhaps you’ll venture out onto the wraparound balcony terrace for an al fresco breakfast with a dose of Vitamin D. The newly built viewing gallery is also on this floor. Stop here a while and take in the ever changing scenery - admittedly you may have to be drawn away from its beauty.
Outside you’ll be sure to enjoy a splash in the large heated swimming pool. Who can resist a swim, surrounded as you are by such stunning scenery yet secluded and private at the same time? The garden has a spacious paved area with a thatched garden room for outdoor entertaining when the weather turns. Inside, you’re encouraged to take your pick of challenge - is it going to be a pool championship or table football today?
Snuggled between Berrynarbor and Ilfracombe, you’ll be hard pushed to leave this place, but when you do there’s so much to explore. Take your camera to capture the lovely colourful boats and rock pools of sheltered Watermouth Cove. Watermouth Castle and the Dinosaur and Wildlife Park are fab days out for the family, and Exmoor National Park is just down the road. Ilfracombe itself is packed with Victorian history and modern art.

You get what you pay for.Mr K Carter - 19th April 2019
Holiday property is amazing, true to it's pictures on website, had everything you needed there many thanks to the owner. I would like to say it's a fantastic place and everything you need, my family enjoyed every moment there many thanks.Mrs Karen Serle - 24th March 2019
Whimbrels proved to be the perfect holiday property, an impressive building from the outside and even more gorgeous inside. Our party of six adults had a wonderful weekend, so good in fact we didn't leave the property! The open plan living/dining/kitchen area makes this a very easy house for large groups to socialise. The games room provided enough fun to keep us entertained and having ordered a large delivery of food and drink, the kitchen proved to be ideal for our catering needs. The bedrooms are beautifully designed and beds incredibly comfortable. Very impressed with Marsdens, this is the first time we have booked a property through them and having stayed at various properties over the years for our annual get together we are all keen to return to Whimbrels again next year.Ms Maxine James - 28th January 2019
If there was an option above Excellent, this property would get it.... Everything was perfect for our weekend to celebrate my wife and I's 30th Birthdays with our close friends. The views were spectacular, the rooms beautiful, the games room and pool great fun!! We will certainly be rebooking at some point in the future.Mr Philip Shore - 7th November 2018
An amazing house with the added addition of a well kept pool and stunning gardens. The best company in the South West for ANY holiday accomadation, booked for 2019 as we left. OUTSTANDING in all aspects, ideal for a family or celebration Mrs Arlene Collins - 3rd October 2018
Truly a holiday to remember - something for everyone. Our party ranged from 5 years to 92 years - brilliant holiday - thank you Mrs Linda JOHNSTON - 9th September 2018
From the moment we arrived and unlocked the door we were thrilled with this property. The whole family thoroughly enjoyed the whole holiday.Mr Peter Ingram - 10th June 2018
We had an amazing time, we were a group of 5 couples and there was plenty of space for all of us. The property was spotless and they provided everything you would need, from lovely towels to the most equipped kitchen I have ever seen. We would all definitely recommend this property to stay in and especially in the summer with the pool and bbq area, plus the views were lovely too! Fantastic all round stay!Mr Lyn Jones - 14th February 2018
