Full Property Description

Black Pit Cottage is a beautifully refurbished old stone building in a spectacular position perched just above the beach at Lee Bay with direct views over the beach and out to sea, and adjacent to National Trust land.

Internally, the property is finished to a high standard with under floor heating throughout. The modern open plan living area also has a wood burner for cosy evenings in. The property has two double bedrooms both with en-suites and sea views.

Externally, guests can enjoy two spacious patios, with a built-in barbecue and patio furniture, perfect for al fresco dining or enjoying a glass of wine whilst watching the waves. The cottage also has an outside shower which is ideal for use after a day at the beach.

The peaceful village of Lee Bay is a ten minute drive (less than 4 miles) from the popular beaches at Woolacombe and Croyde, and is surrounded by dramatic coastline on the edge of Exmoor. When the tide is out, Lee Bay beach is a golden sandy beach ideal for children, offering swimming, canoeing and rock pooling. Next door is the picturesque NGS garden at Cliffe, open from April- September, boasting a diverse range of habitats and stunning coastal views.

Nearby there are Blue Flag beaches and surfing at Saunton, Croyde and Woolacombe. Woolacombe also has plenty of options for evening entertainment, especially in the summer months. Ilfracombe’s bustling High Street and harbour are ten minutes away and the South West Coastal Path passes directly alongside the cottage with access to National Trust Cliff top walks about 200 yards away.

This property especially welcomes families. It includes a cot and a highchair plus a stair gate, blackout blinds, toys, a selection of board games and plastic crockery for children.

“Blue chip website is one of the better ones. There are lots of large interior and exterior photos, and it is easy to find all the required info on facilities.” Tim Hodges, September 2013
"If you want first class accommodation in a totally relaxed area with peace and quite this is the place for you, clean and well equipped make this cottage one of the best we have stayed in very hilly and lanes can be narrow. Plenty to do in the area." Mr Lengdhorn, September 2013
“We recently stayed at Black Pit Cottage which is located in Lee Bay. It is not the most bustling of places if that's what you prefer but it is set in the most beautiful surroundings. We enjoyed going out to the busier towns of Ilfracombe and Woolacombe which are only a short drive away but it was great knowing we were based somewhere away from all the main holiday crowds and could come home after a day out to this gorgeous oasis. The cottage itself is nestled up a hill with the most fantastic views of Lee Bay and is a short walk away from the bay itself. Very easy to pack stuff for the beach and walk down from the cottage. Waking up every morning to the sound of the waves and that beautiful view was one of the best parts of our holiday. So relaxing. Our children also enjoyed the beach and the many rock pools and secret coves we explored when the tide was out. The cottage was fantastic - a real home from home and was very comfortable. We couldn't fault it, we were lucky with the weather and the week went by all too quickly. Would love to return again and would definitely recommend Black Pit Cottage to anyone considering staying there.” Matthew Pluck, August 2013
“We stayed at this property for a week recently, the location is perfect. Had not realised just how close to Lee Bay we would be. Just a few minutes walk from the cottage is the lovely bay which the children had great fun in. The cottage itself has been very tastefully refurbished, was spotlessly clean on arrival and had everything we required. I would have no hesitation in recommending a stay here and we hope to go back again ourselves.” Kirstie Blyth, June 2013
“We have had an amazing week. Very impressed with immaculate cottage, very cosy and warm. We recommend squires fish and chip restaurant – make sure you are very hungry as the portions are HUGE! Local pub is very good- great beet and lovely Sunday roast. Also the Quay (Damian Hirst's restaurant) – could not fault it, service and food top notch. We hope to come back next year.” Karen, Claire, Peter and Elaine, Brighton/Cotswolds, November 2012.
“We have had the best time ever everything was just perfect, cottage views, area and even the weather was mostly dry and sunny, and may I say this is probably the first self catered cottage were every kitchen appliance has worked perfectly. Thanks ever so much.” Judith and Lauren, London, June 2012.
Our stay at Black Pit Cottage was very enjoyable. The owners have gone to a huge amount of time and trouble to ensure that the property is a 'home from home'. The quality of the fittings and furniture was excellent. We loved the location and enjoyed sitting on the terrace looking out over the spectacular North Devon Coast. The owners garden, which is next door, is open to the public and is part of the Natiional Garden Scheme. This is a beautiful garden, in an amazing setting, and well worth a visit. July 2011.
This is the best self-catering property I have ever had the privilege to stay in - a real home from home with a high standard of equipment and amenities. It was in the most delightful location and a real retreat from the busy pace of city life. I would love to return some day and drink more deeply the peace and life-giving qualities of Black Pit Cottage. July 2011.
Wonderful location, beautiful cottage, well presented with everything needed for a nice relaxing holiday. Stunning views. July 2011.
I stayed in Black Pit Cottage with my husband and 2 children aged 4 and 6 in the summer for a week. The location was stunning - beautiful views of the sea, and the owner of the cottage who lived nearby was helpful and attentive. The cottage was well-equipped and done up to a high standard. We all had a lovely time despite the variable weather! For a family, it may be better to be nearer the main resorts, as it took a little while each day to negotiate the narrow roads to get to the likes of Saunton Sands etc. August 2011.
“We had a fantastic time in this wonderful cottage! Stunning views combined with great weather. (No Rain!!) Simply the best place ever... We’ll be back here soon.” Anne and Frans Vooqt, Netherlands, May 2012.
“The cottage and the views are spectacular and exactly what we expected, not even the rain could dampen the holiday! Lee Bay is a wonderful location and we will be back again next year... Thank you for a wonderful stay and relaxing family holiday?” Andy, Karon and Murphy, Reading, June 2012.
