The property was very expensive for what we got. it felt tired and smelt fusty. Disappointed

Reviewed by Zoe 8th June 2019

The apartment has everything you need. On arrival there is a loaf bread,a pint of milk teabags and a little butter waiting for you. I think this a lovely touch. The views are amazing and the apartment it's self is very comfortable and homely. We very much enjoyed our time at Marwood hill garden apartment, I would also like to add how much our littlRead moree dog Poppie enjoyed it too. Hide

A very comfortable and well equiped apartment with views over the beautiful garden at Marwood.

Reviewed by Anne Chandler 20th October 2018

The apartment was just right for us and had all the facilities we needed. We loved the surroundings and had wonderful walks around the garden with our dog. It takes a bit of getting use to the roads around the village and was a shame that it didn't have a local pub or small shop but not too much of a issue. We went out of season so the tea room wasRead more closed but a plus was we had the garden mostly to ourselves, most of the time. The gardeners were around so allowed us to look at the plants on sale. Hide

Fantastic location. Everyone was very welcoming and friendly. There are lots of interesting places to visit nearby

Reviewed by Stuart 15th September 2018

A spacious and comfortable apartment in an idyllic setting; the view over the garden is magnificent. The wood burning stove was much appreciated on a chilly autumn evening and made the lounge really cosy. We come down at least once a year to visit family and I have no doubt we will be looking to stay here again.

The accommodation is well cared for and very comfortable. Above all, it's situation is exceptional, heaven on earth.

Reviewed by J 7th July 2018

A spacious, comfortable apartment set in beautiful gardens. A lovely relaxing base from which to explore the north Devon coast. The surrounding roads took a bit of getting used to but it was worth it. Everyone working or volunteering at the gardens was so friendly and helpful. The tea room is also highly recommended.
