One of the double bedrooms with TV/DVD and shower cubicle can be found on the ground floor too.  Upstairs most of the rooms enjoy the fabulous views across the estuary with the king-size bedroom also offering a TV/DVD. There is a twin room and a family size bathroom with shower over bath and WC. 

Outside where you can truly soak up the views there is a shared lawn with play equipment for little ones. If you enjoy a good walk you can head across the fields and join the Tarka Trail direct from the owners’ land. There is ample parking available.

A wonderful week in Devon enhanced by a fantastic cottage. Location is stunning with unrivalled views and the cottage was incredibly comfortable with all we needed. The great selection of kids toys and beach equipment an added bonus as was the delicious Devon cream tea on arrival from our very welcoming hosts.

April Cottage is a wonderful base for a Devon holiday. The Cottage was spotlessly clean. The Cottage has lots of old fashioned charm as well as feeling modern and fresh. The owners take excellent care of the property and had lots of little extra touches you don't normally find. The gardens and grounds were amazing! Perfect for kids and had a littleRead more shed full of outdoor toys. We can't wait to get back next year! Perfect cottage with perfect gardens. Well done to the owners! Hide

Nicely appointed cottage in lovely situation with very friendly, helpful owners. As a 5* property, we felt that there was some equipment missing ( see above).
