This is a lovely cottage, which is beautifully furnished.. The cottage was a retreat for Terry Thomas and there is interesting memorabilia on the walls. It is in a quiet, tranquil location which is perfect for rest and relaxation, with views of the sea and coastline. The owners are very friendly and leave a tasty welcome basket of goodies in the cottage for you. It has a garden area with a picnic table and two reclined seats, where you can eat or just sit and enjoy the birdsong and occasionally be entertained by the local chickens.
The local area is beautiful, with bays full of rock pools to explore and some very good eateries. Within short walking distance (though the walk back is uphill) is the Boat Cafe, where you can sample a delicious lunch or tea. It is only a short drive to Hele Bay and Ilfracombe for places to eat in the evening. I recommend the Hele Bay pub for excellent service and very nice food and the Grampus Inn in Lee, which is the other side of Ilfracombe, especially for a lovely lunch after exploring the rock pools in Lee Bay.
I would definitely visit the area again and stay in Tom's Cottage.
