The garden of the cottage is fabulous, very large, fully enclosed and not overlooked. This along with the quiet location creates a relaxing private space. The inside is scrupulously clean and a home from home. Some decor needs updating but I have the impression this is underway in a rolling process. Highly recommended

Clean, well equipped, and comfortable cottage with large fully enclosed gardens. It is situated in a reasonably built up area of housing but it is quiet as it is located on a private no through road. Bideford town centre is a 20 minute walk away and Westward Ho or Appledore a 5 minute drive.

Reviewed by Marissa, 6th August 2016

This cottage felt like a home away from home: comfortable, cosy and private. It's in a good location, in the hills of Bideford and quite close to Westward Ho beach. However, it wasn't very close to the recommended pub: the Bell Inn.
