Luz and Brian are most welcoming and go way above what you would expect. The welcome pack they provide is amazing. The cottage is lovely and in a very peaceful setting. It has a lovely big garden which is excellent for people with children or dogs. We highly recommend The Moos. Second time weve been there.

The cottage was an ideal base for 4 adults and 3 dogs to explore the area where the oldest male adult ( 78 years ) could show his wife, daughter and her partner the area in North Devon where he grew up

This is a fabulous cottage that has been wonderfully renovated from barn buildings adjacent to the farmhouse. The owners, Liz and Brian, were there to greet us on arrival and had provided us with all the things we needed, including wine and biscuits! Ideally placed for visiting beaches, villages and great walks. Would Highly recommend.
