      A short break in the country

      We had a great stay at Lynda's cottage, she was very helpful and hospitable. The cottage is right in the country side which we really liked. There is nice walking routes and cycling on the Tarka trail around Great Torrington, under 5 miles away. We surfed at Northam Burrows (Westward Ho!) Which was quiet and just under 15 miles away. We had dinner at the New Inn pub in Roborough, really good food and friendly locals. We'd go back and would recommend if you're looking for a good value, comfortable cottage in beautiful countryside.

      5/5 Excellent

        Very friendly, nice and cosy and great for our 2 dogs.

        Cream tea on arrival which was nice touch and as it was my 60th birthday Lynda left a bottle of Prosecco for us. 5stars all the way highly recommend.

        5/5 Excellent

          Quiet retreat

          Fantastic communication both pre-visit and throughout the stay. The owners are in the house attached to the property but you never hear them or know that they are their. Their is a cottage opposite with a little old lady in which you hardly ever see, her dog does like calling around "Toby" not sure my little dog liked that as she is a recluse. Lovely old dog. As I just said nothing around, you can open your door and let the dog just go out to the toliet. Nothing but gardens and fields. The cottage is approx. 3.2 miles away from anything but fields. Seems a bit weird because you are near loads of things to do. Reccomend: Tarka trail 15 mins away, old railway walk or we hired push bikes and put my dog in the basket, cycled to instowe and bideford. Both worth a visit, Instow beach beautiful for dogs. Dartington glass is near, plenty to do and a lovely retreat to go back to. Everything is catered for at the cottage, cutlery, oven, microwave, heating , sky T.V need to ask owners for code for the films as its connected with next door (same house) Would definitely stay again.

          5/5 Excellent

            Lovely property, nice peaceful get away.

            Loved our stay here with our two dogs, lovely place, nice and clean, had cream tea waiting for us upon arrival which was a lovely touch. We used it more as a base to explore North Devon so didn’t really spend much time in the garden ect but it was lovely and our dogs had plenty of space to run around. We visited both local pubs whilst here, both about 5/10mins drive away but the food in both was delicious and very friendly and welcoming, the New inn is dog friendly too which was a bonus for us. It would have been nice if there was a guest book at the property where guests can write a little something in about their stay, may come in handy when looking for things to do, what places people recommend especially for dog friendly places to go. We had some lovely days out though after googling dog friendly beaches and days out. weather was gorgeous from day one up till the day we went home, loved everything about it.

            5/5 Excellent

              Blissfully quiet

              The property is hidden away down some very small lanes but is more than worth the drive. A beautiful looking house with absolutely everything you could possibly need to make your stay perfect. Comfortable, warm and clean, and the cream tea waiting for us when we arrived was a welcome surprise. The owners are always available should you need them but never intrusive. We will definitely be returning.
