Cosy cottage in a beautiful part of Devon. Lovely warm swimming pool that the kids loved plus the air hockey in the games room. Had lovely days out to woolacombe, cycling on the Tarka trail, visiting Combe Martin wildlife and dinosaur park and Arlington court. Plenty to do within a 30 minute drive

A very comfortable cottage. Extremely clean with all the equipment we required. The swimming pool was lovely and warm as was the jacuzzi . We were lucky to have it to ourselves when it opened in the morning. The staff were very friendly and attentive. Although the weather was very wet at times it was a convenient place to be. It is best to approachRead more it from the South as recommended on travel instructions as this is the best way. We would not hesitate to return again at this time of the year. Hide

Lovely cottage with plenty for the kids to enjoy. The pool was clean, well maintained and warm, the children showed no signs of shivering even after a prolonged dip. Well located for day trips to the beach and other local attractions.

What a gorgeous location! Our days with kiddos were perfect - breakfast, pool, lunch and beach in Ilfracombe or Woolacombe, pool, dinner! With stops to see the pony and donkeys or play in the games room along the way. Hot tub and sauna were a great bonus for us parents, too.

Really fabulous location and setting. Very sad to leave the tranquility of the space and freedom for us and our dog. Lots to do in the area too but must admit to daily walks in the field provided and beaches were all we needed to rest and recuperate. Our property was lovely and warm and gave us room to have our own space. Pool and sauna much apprecRead moreiated after walks. Charlotte is a great host on site and there should you need any assistance. Hide

We had a lovely stay, thank you. We loved the card and wine on arrival. The cottage is well fitted out and is in a great location being both rural and within easy reach of the things we wanted to visit. We enjoyed meeting the pony, donkeys and dog! The stair gate and high chair made things easy with our baby. We would love to visit again.

Really enjoyed our stay in Ruggaton (Buttercup) Cottage. The cottage was very comfortable particularly the beds. The facilities on site are great and the kids loved the pool and games room and generally they had it to themselves.
