The cottage is absolutely lovely and despite our comments above we all wished we could have stayed longer. The hot tub is a real bonus at the end of the day. The property is perfectly situated for exploring both locally and slightly further afield (Ilfracombe, Lynton & Lynmouth and Bude!)

The cottage is a short walk from great views at the northam burrows and the beach. The tarka trail is good for a day out exploring on bikes. There are plenty of great pubs and restaurants close by. If the weather let's you down there is the hot tub and a real fire to keep you cosy.
