Unique property located in a 19th century former-Wesleyan chapel, situated in the coastal village of Lee Bay, with the beach, coastal walks, and village pub all within walking distance.

This property is located in the small village of Lee Bay which enjoys a scenic spot on Devon’s northern coastline. Within walking distance of the property is a picturesque sand and shingle beach, which is surrounded by imposing cliffs to either side. Just three miles to the east of the property is the popular resort town of Ilfracombe, which has plenty of attractions for visitors to enjoy, including the town’s aquarium, Tunnels Beach, a bustling harbour, and Watermouth Castle which is now home to a family-friendly theme park. Meanwhile, a short drive to the west of the property brings guests to a magnificent stretch of coastline with a number of wonderful sandy beaches, including those at Woolacombe and Croyde.

Access to this property is via a set of external stone stairs and guests are advised to take care at all times. On entering this attractive property, guests will discover the open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner, a welcoming space with a cosy, homely feel thanks to the exposed beams and stone fireplace with warming wood burner. There is no need for guests to go without contemporary creature comforts either, as there is a TV and DVD. The kitchen area is a pleasant, light space and is well-equipped with an oven, hob, microwave, fridge and dishwasher, whilst there is access to a shared utility room where guests will find a washing machine and tumble dryer. There is also a fridge/freezer in the shared utility room which is for sole use of the guests in this property. Stairs lead to the galleried mezzanine bedroom with its double bed and en-suite bathroom with bath, separate shower, and WC.

Outside, the property benefits from a pretty garden with a decked patio area, BBQ, and garden furniture: the perfect space to enjoy the attractive surroundings. There is one roadside parking space provided for the property.
