Brilliant find!!
Fantastic stay at this lovely little cottage, everything we needed for a super holiday in Devon.

5/5 Excellent

Impeccably clean
Lychgate cottage was impeccably clean throughout. The property has been finished to a high standard. Very well kitted out, didnt need to un pack any if my kitchen/ cleaning items. The only slight issue i found is the freezer is only a very small ice box in the top of the fridge which was a bit tricky with a picky eater who lives of chips and nuggets. But all in its excellent 5 stars would definitely stay again. P.s book tables at the bell in every night you want a meal

5/5 Excellent

Amazing cottage.
Amazing cottage in a beautiful village. The cottage was immaculate with all the amenities to make it a home from home stay. The owner Miguel was very approachable and provided a first class service. The information pack provided had everything you needed to know about the surrounding area. I must mention the local pub as the food, drinks and hospitality was outstanding. A cracking holiday. Thank you Miguel, we will be in touch for our next holiday. Lee, Cara & William.

Great house in an excellent location
We really enjoyed our week in Devon during the heatwave in July. The house was clean and comfortable with everything we needed. The location is great with lots of nice walks and the pub is just across the road. Unfortunately it was closed due to Covid so we only managed to get one meal there but it's a lovely pub with lots of space out the back. The village is very quiet - apart from the church bells :) and is great base for exploring North Devon. a short drive along the windy roads leads you to the A361 and you can visit the beaches as we did, we also went bike riding on the Tarka trail and horseback riding in Exmoor. This is a great property and Miguel kept us in the loop at all times and was an excellent host. Recommended!

5/5 Excellent

A memorable break
A beautiful spotlessly clean property in a lovely location. It was a great base for exploring the region. Highly recommended!
