We booked a two-bed cottage at Hele Valley Holiday Park for a long weekend and were pleasantly surprised.
The park itself is located in Hele, which is walkable from Ilfracombe . Hele Bay itself is about 5-10 mins walk from the park and there is a minimart at the nearby petrol station so you're well serviced. There's also a newish Tesco a few minutes drive up the road.
The cottage was clean, well presented and well equipped. The rooms are large, especially the main bedroom. There was a bathroom and a separate shower room.
Outside there was a brick barbeque and a private hot tub that can be rented for £20 a day. That's a bit pricey but they do check the water daily, and insist on a safety briefing first.
The cottages are actually located just outside the gates of the park and ours (Lily) had it's own drive, which meant unloading was very easy.
If you're looking for a self-catered North Devon base this is definitely worth a look.
