We really loved the cottage. Immaculately clean, extremely well lated out and presented, very well equipped, stunning location being far enough away from the town to be quiet, yet close enough to be convenient. Great fishing lake, and I caught a personal best. The.owners are very friendly and always on hand.

Perfect cottage, in a perfect location.

Booked 3 day get away for parents. Absolutely loved it and they will be booking to go back. Dad fished in the lake and caught his personal best!

We stayed for one week and admittedly we had very good weather which always helps! But the cottage is very, very nice and would we warm and cosy even if the weather was not so good. Mrs Ridd was great and always on hand if required. Lovely dogs.

Well appointed rural barn conversion, one mile outside of Torrington on a working farm. Sleeps 4. Quiet location with good views from outside seating. Cottage provided everything we needed for a comfortable family stay. Attentive, welcoming, but not intrusive hosts. Would recommend.

Very well equipped spotlessly clean and very welcoming.

The cottage was great, a real home from home. Very clean and comfortable and an ideal base to see the sights of North Devon and Cornwell.

Reviewed by Sandra, 23rd June 2018

The cottage is lovely, very peaceful, clean and welcoming. June greeted us with milk, eggs, coffee, & biscuits, just what we needed after a long journey. The fishing lake is an added bonus, which my husband enjoyed. We would highly recommend The Willows.

Reviewed by Philip, 9th June 2018

Willow Cottage is one of the best holiday cottages we have ever rented: spacious, clean, well equipped and in a lovely location. Mrs Ridd is an excellent hostess; friendly, helpful and kind. We did appreciate the starter pack she provided, containing eggs and milk. We felt proud to have been shown two lambs that had just been born as late as mid JuRead morene. Hide
