Map

Coast/Beach:

Fabulous local beaches within easy walking distance:

Rockham beach 10 min walk down coastal path (not accessible by car). Great for rock-pooling and beach BBQ's. See if you can spot the rusted remains of the ship wreck!

Grunta beach 15 min walk down coastal path (not accessible by car)

Woolacombe beach 25 min walk down road, slightly longer if you take the coastal path or why not try the cross country path via Mortehoe village car park? 5 min drive, ample parking at beach.

Distances:

Belvedere is located in the village of Mortehoe.

25 minute walk to Woolacombe, 5 mins drive.

15 minute drive to Illfracombe.

1.4 miles to Bull Point Lighthouse.

Easy access to the Tarka Trail and local bike hire.

Further Details:

Guests with young children are advised that while the roads into Mortehoe and Woolacombe are easily accessible with pushchairs, the coastal route is rather rugged and there are lots of steps. We advise using a baby carrier rather than a pushchair.

Stunning house in a beautiful location, as close to perfection as you can get!

  • 5 of 5

1st impressions as you enter the house is "wow what a view!" Absolutely breathtaking viewpoint of the North Devon coastline. The house is beautifully decorated with plenty of space for our family of 11 (6 adults, 2 teenagers, 2 children and a toddler) oh and not forgetting the dog! The huge kitchen/diner easily catered for family meals - I want that table!! And the hot tub gave hours of fun for both old and young.

The most precious memory of our holiday was made at Rockham beach, an almost secret, secluded spot which is accessible by following the coastal path at the bottom of the garden for a 10/15 minute walk - great for making beach fires and toasting marshmallows.

I'd highly recommend this property and can't wait to book a return visit.

Exceptional property, location and views

  • 5 of 5

Choosing to stay at Belvedere turned out to be the best decision we could have made to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary with our family group comprising 6 adults & 4 children (aged 14 months to 12 years). Situated in a quiet cul-de-sac, clean, tastefully decorated and close to many of North Devon's beautiful beaches. The kitchen was well equipped with lots is space. The dining table seated us all easily. The impressive view from the rear of the property overlooked the sea. The garden was stunning, filled with colour and attracting lots of butterflies on the buddleia. The huge patio provided excellent space for relaxing and enjoying the views, with the large hot tub a favourite, especially night time star gazing. There is plenty of opportunity for walking starting from the property. The pretty village of Mortehoe Is a short walk away providing access to pubs, post office, small shop and tea rooms. Andrea was extremely helpful and couldn't do enough to ensure we enjoyed our stay. The welcome basket and card an unexpected and lovely touch. We would thoroughly recommend this luxury property for a family holiday/celebration.

  • 5 of 5

Our family gathering was well served by being in this property,we appreciated Andrea's helpfulness and thoughtful welcome.We enjoyed the stunning situation and easy access to the coastal path. Everyday groceries and newspapers available a few minutes walk away.

We found the large kitchen/dining area with room to sit as well very practical for us all,as well as a lounge we could all relax in.The games both indoor and outdoor were used,and the hot tub enjoyed.

The house was clean,with the kitchen well equipped.

Thank you for sharing your property for the 10 of us to enjoy a happy and memorable week .

Wow, we had such an amazing time at Belvedere. The house was amazing!! It was immaculate with more than enough equipment. The views were just breath taking. We can't rave about this property enough!

The property owner Andrea was so friendly and helpful. She really couldn't do enough to help and make sure we had a brilliant time.

1st Class

  • 5 of 5

First class through and through. It was a pleasure dealing with the owner Andrea, the attention to detail was outstanding. The house was perfect and suited needs of the three generations of our family. It had everything you could need and the welcome basket was a lovely touch. The village was very quite and well serviced with local store, post office, take away and two pubs although not all opened in the winter. The views from property were stunning and it is in a perfect location to start some lovely walks. Overall a perfect stay for New Year and we are hoping to return in the summer. Would highly recommend.
