Very satisfied with villa as clean, well equipped with a lovely grassed area for relaxing and children to play. In addition snooker table is full sized and enjoyable to use in the evenings. Host welcomed us on arrival and sent some addition emails on directions to villa and local places of interest before we arrived that was useful. All in all fairRead more value and a pleasant venue Hide

A lovely property with stunning views, quality space for a large family or gathering and much to do in the locality with shops and walks nearby. The owner is very helpful and hospitable, there when needed! Would highly recommend and hope to stay again at the property. A visit to Fremington Quay is a must; excellent food and huge servings .

The cottage is perfectly located to visit all the tourist attractions, beaches and country walks. Self catering is not a problem as there are a couple of supermarkets nearby and a very good chip shop. As for entertainment there are two televisions, a couple of family games and a very well used (full size) snooker table. There were eight of us stayiRead moreng in the annex and all of us were very happy with the accommodation. Also, Mr Patel was on site and eager to please. Hide

Amazing amount of space. Good amount of parking. Very well furnished kitchen. The coffee tea and milk ready for us when we arrived was a nice touch. Plenty of seating. Great view of the sunset from the balcony. Great location for getting places in north Devon. Supermarket very close. Great gardens. Would definitely come again.

Fantastic house. Loads of room for eight people. And the snooker table was great - especially given the typical British weather. We took our dog - the grounds were big enough for a first walk of the morning. Overall Brilliant
