Great fab accommodation. We stopped in Malt Cottage sleeps 4. Clean well equipped. Good covid-19 measures in place. Really good centre for seeing North Devon, short hop to Ilfracombe. Great plus was seeing all the animals pigs, ducks, donkeys, horses, alpacas and even parrots on the farm. Family who own the place are really nice. Will be back Dave Read moreN Nick Hide
