Watermouth Cove CottagesWatermouthDevonEX34 9SJView Map

A holiday complex comprising of 8 cottages situated adjacent to the beautiful Watermouth Castle in North Devon. It is located only a few hundred metres from a picturesque harbour with stunning views. This business has been successfully owner operated, utilising one of the cottages for themselves whilst still generating an impressive turnover and subsequent net profit. The owners currently operate with no early morning breakfasts or daily cleans, allowing our clients to have plenty of free time and an enviable lifestyle. The property benefits from large gardens, a pretty court yard, a garage, parking for guests and an opportunity for a building plot with separate access to rear.


In an area of outstanding national beauty, Watermouth Cove Cottages are located on the dramatic North Devon coastline in a unique location within 200 metres of the sea. Watermouth Castle and grounds, a family theme park and entertainment center are located close by. The property is just off the A399 between Ilfracombe and Combe Martin. Nearby is the awarding village of Berrynarbor with its village post office and pub, The Olde Globe Inn. Barnstaple, the regional center of North Devon, is 12 miles away and has excellent transport connections via the North. Only a few hundred metres away is the idyllic Watermouth Harbour which is known for its un-spoilt naturally drying harbour.


The business has been nurtured over many years and now enjoys a loyal clientele, who repeat their direct bookings from one year to another. That, together with a strong online presence, results in an impressive turnover and net profit. There is tremendous scope to expand the business by improved marketing and upgrading the accommodation. Both the location and accommodation on offer are highly attractive and the business is easily run. Full handover will be provided by the owners and actual trading accounts will be made available following a formal successful viewing.
