Luxury ‘sole-use’ hotel - BRAND NEW TO THE SELF CATERING RENTAL MARKET FROM APRIL 2019
Former boutique hotel now available for large family gatherings and special occasions. 11 en-suite bedrooms, huge lounge with bar, conservatory overlooking the sea, dining room for 28, meeting room, large games room with table tennis, pool, table football and large screen TV.
Large 'party house' situated in the heart of Ilfracombe just a few minutes walk from all the amenities including the seafront, theatre, cinema, fine dining restaurants and harbour.
One of the most striking buildings in Ilfracombe, The Habit was originally known as the Crescent House Hotel. It opened in 1863 and still contains many original features in addition to its handsome façade overlooking the landmark Capstone Hill and sea front.
When we bought the building in 2018 it had undergone an extension renovation and had been run as a very successful boutique hotel. However, we had a dream to use it as a ‘sole-use’ hotel ie a big party house for family get-togethers, reunions or special birthdays.
Our ‘concierge’ lives 2 minutes away and is on hand during your stay to help with anything you need from beauty treatments to restaurant recommendations.
As you enter from Fore Street you will be greeted by a fabulous hallway and sweeping staircase.
Of the hallway to the right is the former ballroom – now ‘the Party Room / Lounge. Featuring a large bar (we can stock it for you if you like!), sound system, sofas, chairs and tables this room is a fantastic party venue. A large 70” TV screen at one end of the room allows for movies or sports to be watch while others can be at the other end of the room playing cards or just having a drink. Doors lead out from here to the terrace with chairs and tables, patio heaters and fabulous sea views.
Off this room is the dining room with seating for 30 and more wonderful views. And from here step down to the split-level conservatory which gives you access to the garden and parking area.
The large commercial style kitchen is off the dining room with enough fridges for numerous parties and all the cooking equipment and utensils you could possibly need.
Also off the main reception area is a conference room for 18 people and ladies toilets.
Lower Ground Floor
The staircase from the main reception takes you down to a very large games room with table tennis table, pool table, table football and large screen TV for sports / movies. There is also an Xbox and Wii U.
Down on this level you will also find 2 treatment rooms. Our concierge will book beauty treatments or hair appointments for you so you can have them done on site.
There are also gents toilets on this level.
The bedrooms are on 3 levels all with luxury ensuite bathrooms or shower rooms. All have TVs and fridges and most have sea views. Rooms are decorated with a fresh and contemporary feel, and no two are alike. Room five on the seafront side is painted baby blue, with white linen, geometric lamps and a mini chaise longue. Other rooms have a more decadent style, with chandeliers, deep plum hues and roll-top baths.
The Habit has a lovely terrace and garden offering fantastic views over the sea and Capstone Hill. There is an outside kitchen, BBQ and Pizza oven plus plenty of tables and chairs and outdoor heaters. The perfect place for al-fresco parties!
A short stroll from Ilfracombe’s attractive harbour, galleries and restaurants, The Habit is situated on higher ground at the junction of Fore Street and the gently curving Sommers Crescent – which leads down towards the sea front and harbour.
Ilfracombe is a popular North Devon resort which attracts family visitors as well as the ‘surf set’ which is drawn by the Atlantic rollers at nearby Woolacombe, Croyde and Saunton Sands.
Set in the heart of the North Devon and Somerset coastline the Coastal Path runs through the town linking visitors with any number of hamlets, coves, inlets and villages.
It offers some of the finest coastal scenery in the country, along with its own harbour, sandy beach and hidden coves.
The area is always bustling with a traditional seaside atmosphere complete with the charming harbour, pavement cafes and offbeat shopping streets.
Damien Hirst who hails from the area has loaned the town his 20m tall statue, Verity who stands on the end of the pier. This has resulted in more and more tourists into the town and it is fast becoming known for being the place to go in North Devon if you are interested in art and / or good food. There are many galleries in the town and Fore Street boasts the only Michelin Starred restaurant in North Devon
