The cottage was in a lovely quiet village and was very picturesque. The local pub was easily reached and the landlord was very friendly. Inside was extremely comfortable and very well equipped, we couldnt have asked for more. The owner was so pleasant and very helpful with everything. All in all I would give it 10 out of 10.

Wonderful cosy cottage with everything you need. Owners had left a bottle of wine and some milk in the fridge for our arrival and also helped with our shopping delivery as we arrived slightly later. Perfect to relax and enjoy the views whilst the kids can run around and enjoy the countryside. Great local pub which is a 5 min walk, as well as a kidsRead more park. Will definitely be going back.

Beautiful cottage and stunning location, remote enough but also close enough (2 miles) from maintown and other little villages and attractions. Just perfect for our family of three (including a just turnned 2 year old). The garden was located to the front of the cottage but was very secure for a toddler and enough space for a little one to play andRead more wheel a buggy etc. We ate in the garden, under the wisteria, every morning and evening. We had everything we could possibly need. Hide

Absolutely beautiful cottage with a real homely feel from the minute you step through the door. Well appointed to a very high standard, you could wish for anything more. I visited with 2 small children (8 & 9) it was even well equipped for them. Fantastic hosts, they've thought of everything. We didn't want to leave! Thank you, we will be back....

The cottage is over bit as cosy as it looks and the piano really makes it. The owner is very helpful, friendly, and has great suggestions for places to see and eat. The location is ideal for exploring that area of north devon and the Exmoor/TIntagel area is about an hours drive away. The village is nice and quiet and stunning when it's sunny.

The cottage was a home from home. Cosy and warm with the log burner and the Rayburn in the kitchen. The cottage had everything we could wish for and more. Walks from the door, plenty of places to visit and lots of places to eat. We are already planning a return visit early next year.
