This was a lovely very well equipped cottage in a beautiful peaceful location on a farm about 4 miles inland from Barnstaple . The hosts were very welcoming and helpful and the cottage was spotlessly clean. It is situated some way along a typical narrow Devon lane well away from any traffic noise which for us was perfect. You do need to drive to geRead moret to any amenities but that gives you the bonus of wonderful peace and tranquility. We really enjoyed our stay and would very much recommend this cott Hide
