We had a wonderful week in North Devon which was helped by the amazing weather. The cottage was superbly located, 15 minutes to either Staunton Sands or Barnstaple. It was very comfortable and had everything we needed. The bed rooms were spacious and the shower was lovely and powerful - just what we needed after a day at the beach! Would definitelyRead more stay again. Hide

The cottage it self was nice although some parts unfortunately needed a bit more cleaning dirty glasses in cupboard. The bed was very comfortable and the two televisions were great the location was very good.

Very comfortable and pretty much everything you could need. It was very quiet as well, which was nice. Really pleased to be able to take the dogs and they enjoyed themselves as much as my friend and I. Many thanks.

Too many cobwebs and spiders and had to clean out the microwave before use. However, great location and beautiful weather, made for a good break away.

Comfortable cottage, ideally situated for local dog friendly beaches. Well equipped with bonus of washing machine, dishwasher, WiFi and sky TV. Its a shame that dogs have to be on leads in the garden, but there is plenty if good walks from the property. We tried to get an amazon delivery, but they failed to find the property twice.

We thought the cottage was lovely and cosy in a very quiet location, yet still near enough to Barnstaple and Braunton for shopping etc and Saunton Sands for a fantastic beach. The cottage has modern appliances and facilities, such as two sky tvs and an Alexa and we found the beds very comfortable. There is a handy farm shop just down the road.

The cottage was very nice and in a perfect location. With Sky TV and games it was great for our break. However, the house was quite dirty and cobwebs everywhere, looked like it hadn't been stayed in for a while. The garden area is also ok although very sloped so not ideal for sitting out of an evening. Saying that, we had a lovely holiday and theseRead more were only minor thing really as the cottage was lovely. Hide
