    • “Perfect holiday home. I can not recommend Byways more highly. It is really a home from home experience. The owners, George & Sara, are delightful. It’s the cleanest, most comfortable house we have ever stayed in. Situated very conveniently to Lynmouth & Lynton, & Barnstaple, Ilfracombe are nearby. Perfect.”
