In a different location to Nutcombe Cottages but still in Combe Martin is Elsley; a three-bedroom bungalow situated in the heart of Combe Martin and only a gentle stroll from the cove with its beachside pubs, restaurants and shops. Designed to make the most of the sunlight, Elsley is south facing with lovely vistas of the valley opposite. Its location makes it the perfect base for exploring everything that the local area has to offer (see local area page).

Although Elsley is equipped for families, it also makes the perfect base for couples sharing or on their own and is ideal for those with slight disabilities or the elderly.


Elsley comprises of:

Entrance Hall Entry to the bungalow is up two small risers with grab rails into the entrance hall with pine floorboards and a marble topped sideboard and coat rack. All rooms lead off the hallway as follows:

There is a large table with plenty of space to seat six which also extends if more space is required.

Just outside the back door off the kitchen is a small utility area with a Tumble Dryer and space for recycling and refuse.

The lounge is a bright sunny, south facing room with a three-seater sofa and a two-seater sofa, large TV with Freeview, DVD player with a selection of DVD’s for cosy nights in, a coffee table, dresser, music centre with a selection of CD’s for different musical tastes, plus puzzles and family games. For parties of six, there is the option of placing the tub chair from the smaller bedroom for extra seating if required.

The master bedroom is very spacious with ample storage in a large double, built in wardrobe, solid oak chest of drawers, dressing table and bedside cabinets. The bed is a wrought iron king size bed with memory foam topper and there is a lovely bedroom chair for extra comfort.

The second bedroom is at the rear of the bungalow and is also a king size room. There is a solid pine king size bed, a large solid oak wardrobe with drawers, a chest of drawers, dressing table and bedside cabinets.

The single/twin room has views over the rear garden and has the option of being set out as a single room or a twin room, making it very versatile for extended families. There is a large chest of drawers for storage and a tub chair when used as a single.
