Lovely little dog friendly cottage in a great area. Good access to the fields for dog walks and a short drive to Instow and Westward Ho beaches. The owners were lovely and very helpful especially when our fridge decided to play up plus they let you use the numerous buckets and spades, fishing nets and body boards they have stored in their garage.

Reviewed by Susan, 20th October 2017

We loved the location and enjoyed walking in the surrounding countryside with our dogs. We had a lovely welcome by the owners, as we arrived later than expected. The cottage was comfortable and well equipped. It was a good size for us; two adults, our nine year old son and two dogs. We found a little gem in the farm barns where a variety of games sRead moreuch as swingball, football and badminton were played! All in all a super mini-break. Hide
