A very cosy farm cottage attached to another rental cottage and the main farmhouse. Well equipped and nice and warm, with log burner, shower, washing machine, and king size bed. It is lovely and quiet, and great for seeing stars in a dark sky. Very suitable for dogs, with a secure front garden and the farm dog is friendly. Nice touches such as fresRead moreh milk and eggs on arrival. Good parking, logs and household consumables provided. Hide

Wonderful welcome from the locals, everyone seems to welcome dogs and to carry dog biscuits, just in case! The cottage was cosy and perfect for a holiday. Theres plenty to do in Bideford; we particularly recommend the Burton gallery and the Ravilious exhibition (til June 2019). Les and Sue added touches we appreciated; fresh flowers, farm fresh milRead morek and some homemade shortbread! The Bell Inn was full charm, atmosphere and lovely people (all dogs welcome, again).
