FANTASTIC HOLIDAY WEEK!! Friends fun and hot tub stories. All you need to wind down away from the craziness of cities. Everything was provided for us and the owners were more than hospitable if there was anything else we needed. Close by to Bideford, Clovelly, Bude and not far from any sea side towns. Plenty to do for all ages, even us big kids at Read moreheart. I would recommend for anyone wanting to escape and feel rejuvenated. Hide

The cottage was beautiful , the comfort and cleanliness of the property was outstanding. The rural location did mean that you had to travel everywhere in your car, but this only added to the experience of the holiday. The property owners were very welcoming and helpful with any queries that we had, and were on hand when needed.

Beautiful property owned and run by a lovely couple Leslie and Carl who could not have been more helpful but unobtrusive. The cottage is kitted out wonderfully with the kitchen being the best I have ever rented and worked wonderfully for a busy Christmas with at times 8 adults , a 2 yr old and 2 dogs .
