Lovely cottage, in a wonderful setting, with everything you could need. We took our dog and he had a great area in the garden to run around in. You do need a car to get around unless you are happy to spend your time in Westward Ho! which is about 15 mins walk up a narrow road and then down, fairly steep, along footpaths. Overall a great holiday andRead more would highly recommend. Hide

We loved our stay here. The cottage was lovely and clean and had everything we needed for the week. The owner was lovely and friendly. There was a field where we could let our dog have a good run around which was a massive bonus. Would definitely recommend to anyone and would stay there again. Location was fab for all the places we went to.

The cottage was lovely, clean we enjoyed our stay, areas that could be improved, the clothes storage in the cottage was very limited, the kitchen was very well equipped but all the cupboards with the exception of 1 were full so we couldnt unpack food.

Play equipment was not as in picture and was only for very young children so my son couldnt use. Pub was closed down no where to eat. Hide
