    “Overall, we had a fabulous holiday.”

    The hosts, Hilary and Paul, were so friendly and pleasant. On arrival, there were fresh flowers throughout the cottage and some gorgeous home-baked shortbread cookies to welcome us. Hilary and Paul stopped many a while to pass the time of day despite having a working farm to tend. Our youngsters loved trying to feed the sheep (but they weren't hungry this time) and watching the chickens. Toffee, their dog, was very friendly and popular Our group ranged from 7 years to 70 and there was something ...

    The hosts, Hilary and Paul, were so friendly and pleasant. On arrival, there were fresh flowers throughout the cottage and some gorgeous home-baked shortbread cookies to welcome us. Hilary and Paul stopped many a while to pass the time of day despite having a working farm to tend. Our youngsters loved trying to feed the sheep (but they weren't hungry this time) and watching the chickens. Toffee, their dog, was very friendly and popular Our group ranged from 7 years to 70 and there was something for everyone. Plenty of seating, crockery, space - all very well organised and co-ordinated. Free wifi was available, but we struggled for a signal in the lounge area. Everywhere else was okay. All the bedrooms and bathrooms were comfy, spotless and well equipped. Parking for our 3 cars was plenty and the environment was lovely, safe and free from the expected farmyard smells. The pool and hot tub were used everyday - just a pity we couldn't use our sinkers and inflatables etc for insurance reasons which we understood. Plastic beakers were thoughtfully provided for use in the pool area - obviously you can't risk glass or crockery breaking in a swimming pool. The games room was extremely popular - table tennis, pool and table football (although the football table had sagged a little so the players couldn't kick the balls). The separate, full-sized snooker table was excellent, as was the play room with lego, mats, bikes, trikes, balls and much more. There was even some gym equipment. The photographs on the website are a little misleading. The wide angle shots make the rooms look bigger than actual sizes. Having said that, we were still very pleased with everything and had more than enough space for three families. One slight downside was the number of flies in the cottage. Fine mesh screens at the windows would resolve this but fly spray was effective. Also, couldn't leave the patio doors open as there were cats on site which we were asked not to let indoors as they aren't house trained. The gardens, play areas and outdoor seating arrangements were exceptional and used fully most days, thanks to the glorious weather for 6 out of 7 days.

    Thank you very much for your feedback, we’re so pleased to hear all about the great holiday you had! We’d just like to clarify for future guests that inflatables are allowed in the swimming pool (at your own risk) – it’s just that the owners don’t provide any, so you will need to bring your own. We’re sorry you had a few problems with flies; as it’s a farm environment this can happen occasionally, however it’s usually very short lived and as you’ll see from the other feedback received, not a regular occurrence. We very much look forward to seeing you again soon! Owner relations

About the location

HOLSWORTHY

Bude 10 miles; Barnstaple 25 miles.

The ancient market town of Holsworthy lies nestled amid the rolling green hills of Tarka Country. There are many different landscapes within the region, from rugged cliffs and sandy beaches to rolling farmland and lush valleys. Holsworthy has much to offer, including a swimming pool, tennis court and splendid park with bowling green. The town centre boasts a varied selection of traditional shops, pubs and cafés, based around the market square. There is an 18-hole golf course just outside the town, while the local area is rich with opportunities for fishing, sailing, cycling and walking. The sandy beaches at Bude are within easy reach, while further afield visitors can explore the changing face of the South West Coastal Path, dramatic Exmoor and Dartmoor, and unspoilt Bodmin Moor, or simply relax in the quiet countryside that typifies North Devon.
