The best cottage we have stayed in
A wonderful welcome from Janet, lovely hamper, cosy and lovely features, big, brilliantly equipped, comfy beds, super pillows! The little things make the best stay! The games room was great fun and teenagers loved it! Location is great for coast and other tourist attractions in North Devon - (do visit the The Pyne Arms for dinner by the way!)

Cleanest and most well equipped cottage
What a fabulous cottage. Everything is “high end” unlike some properties who use their old equipment. Spotlessly clean. The games room is fantastic for those damp days, early mornings or late nights.

5/5 Excellent

Beautiful house
I cannot recommend this holiday house highly enough. The owner Janet was lovely and made us feel very welcome and gave us the most wonderful welcome pack of goodies. The house was stunning and so beautifully decorated. It was cleaned thoroughly and everything was of a very high standard. The owners had thought of everything we could possibly need during our stay. The house was perfect for us, two adults and 4 children but it would suit anyone. The garden was fantastic for the children and they LOVED the games room. We hope to be able to visit again next year. Such a beautiful home.
