Excellent base for exploring north Devon and the surrounding area. No shortage of choice for days out and dining out, all within a short drive. An extremely relaxing and peaceful base for an enjoyable holiday.

We had a lovely stay at The Holt. The cottage was immaculate and tastefully converted. We enjoyed the view and were able to totally relax in comfort. A quiet getaway that was only 10 minutes drive from a choice of local beaches.

The Holt is a beautifully renovated and appointed barn conversion. It's warm, the beds are very comfortable and the cottage is condusive to relaxation. The view of the river and bird life is wonderful, with the Tarka Tail on your doorstep. It's surprisingly quiet and the owners were friendly and helpful. We would be happy to return.
