Very comfortable/enjoyable stay in a picturesque cottage. Perfect location for exploring North Devon. Thank you Joan for providing an excellent holiday cottage that gave both of us a well deserved and awaited break. Highly recommend The Thatch. Paul & Jackie.

This was a lovely peaceful cottage, perfect for a week's stay. A car is essential to get anywhere. The weather was poor, so we didn't really make use of the garden which would be fabulous on a sunny day, with the river running along the bottom (steep bank, so no paddling!) The kitchen was well equipped, with plenty of fridge/freezer space, washing Read moremachine and dishwasher. I recommend looking up how to use an induction hob if not familiar. Hide

Loved this cottage. We had a lovely relaxing week here with our dog. Really comfortable furnishings, well equipped kitchen comfy bed. And great joy - a socket near the mirror for ladies drying their hair! In my experience, quite rare. There is no hairdryer that I found, ladies so take your own. We loved it here and would certainly go again.

We had a fabulous 4 nights here in May. The cottage is cosy with a lovely log burner. South Molten market on a Saturday is worth a visit (dog friendly). We also visited Instow which has a very dog friendly beach and a nice pub. There is a great circular walk for dogs through the woods and along the river. We would definitely return. The cottage hasRead more a very well equipped kitchen, the bed we slept in was really comfortable and the owner was easily cotactable. Looking forward to next time!! Hide

Located in quiet village road. No nearby pubs or restaurants. Easy reach of South Molton which has a small number of places to eat. Good sized field nearby for walking dog. The footpath through this field leads to South Molton which is about 3 miles away. Locals friendly and helpfull
