Full Description

Welcome to The Quarry (aka Big House Devon)

The Quarry was built in 1890 as a holiday home for an Admiral & his family. The house still maintains many impressive original features, but has been sympathetically restored to create a beautiful & stylish seaside home. The stunning interior has featured in Conde Nast Traveller, The Guardian, The Mail on Sunday, Red Magazine, Real Homes, Grazia & 25 Beautiful Homes.

With 7 bedrooms, outstanding views, pretty gardens, log fires, AGA, detached vine room, sea view terrace accessed directly off a magnificent 34ft sitting / dining room, loads of privacy, full sky package and WIFI, this is a wonderful place for a holiday.

This unique, luxury, self-catering villa backs directly onto the South West coastal path & is located in a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The perfect base from which to explore the Exmoor countryside.

The Quarry has hosted many birthday celebrations – everything from 30ths to 90ths. It’s a great place to get everyone together. There’s a huge dining table opening onto the sea view terrace & a wonderfully equipped, spacious kitchen to cook up a feast. If you’re feeling lazy, get our caterers involved. They both make the most fabulous cakes too. The house sleeps 13, but there are also some great B&Bs on our road if your group is a little larger.

For a family gathering the house is perfect. There’s a wonderful garden for kids to have adventures, a peaceful Vine Room to escape from the noise & all the rooms are lovely – no one need complain about the allocation. Ilfracombe’s pretty harbour is just a 15 min walk & the South West Coastal path starts right outside the back gate.
