Holiday Rental House
Harbour Haven is a stunning quirky 3 bedroomed seaside cottage which is full of character, and located within 20 metres / 25 yards of the quaint Ilfracombe Harbour. Recently the cottage has been completely refurbished restoring many of its original features. The cottage is spacious and is spread over 4 floors and can sleep up to 6 people, so ideally suited to family or groups of friends.

There will be an information book at the cottage detailing all local attractions, walks and other useful information.
