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.

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.

Great location, very peaceful. Beautiful gardens to sit out in on sunny days. Cottage is a bit dated, but is well equipped and was spotlessly clean. Would stay here again.

Lovely location, beautiful garden and an absolute delight feeding the birds, lovely thought to leave bird seed. First cottage we've been to that hadn't got a welcome tray for us on arrival. Would be a nice thought especially when most people have had a long journey.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Fir Tree cottage with kids and our dog. It was perfect for our needs and the garden is very generous and secluded. Short drive to Westward Ho where the dog could join us for a paddle. Can't wait to return.
