Excellent, so well equipped - even included a picnic hamper and blanket! Well located for the places we wanted to visit; most of them being within 10 miles or so. Five minutes by car from a supermarket. No shops in the village but does have a pub serving good food only 5 minutes from cottage. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

A delightful cottage most beautifully & thoughtfully equipped. The charming owners were on site but very unobtrusive but on hand if required. It sits in a beautiful setting & very easy to get around from there.

Lovely cottage and ideal for a week away. Quiet and peaceful and whilst you do have to drive, there are plenty of places to visit such as Ilfracombe, ,woolacombe, Lynton and Lynmouth, Clovelly,, Bude, Westward Ho which are only a short drive away. The owners were very friendly and helpful with suggesting places to visit and eat.

Beautiful, quiet and convenient. Hosts very friendly and helpful, always around if we needed something but unobtrusive and made us feel relaxed. The cottage was perfect for us with useful information and up to date maps which was great as ours were more than 20 years old!

Reviewed by Kay, 12th September 2015

We arrived after a very long journey the property was beautiful and so inviting. It is located in a very quiet village with a pub. Just a short drive takes you to Bideford for shops etc. There are many lovely places to visit within reasonable driving distance. If you enjoy peace and quiet and a taste of rural life I would thoroughly recommend!
