  • “We really enjoyed staying at Woodside.”

    As others have mentioned it is very clean, although there was a rubber duck in the bath that was full of mouldy water! The house is full of little nick nacks (wooden boats, flowers in vases etc.) which is so lovely but is a bit of a problem when you have a 2 year old! I promptly had to gather everything up and hide it to avoid breakages. As others have mentioned it would be nice if there were blackout curtains, or at least thicker ones as the rooms are so light!

    As others have mentioned it is very clean, although there was a rubber duck in the bath that was full of mouldy water! The house is full of little nick nacks (wooden boats, flowers in vases etc.) which is so lovely but is a bit of a problem when you have a 2 year old! I promptly had to gather everything up and hide it to avoid breakages. As others have mentioned it would be nice if there were blackout curtains, or at least thicker ones as the rooms are so light! Also, during our stay there was, what can only be described as a concert, with super loud music and people shouting. This, along with the heat and very strong manure smell (unusually strong!) it did put a damper on our Saturday night! That being said, I wish more places were this clean and well equipped. Despite all the little things we had a lovely time and I would definitely recommend!

    Thank you for your review of Woodside, we are so pleased you found our holiday home clean and tidy and that you would recommend it. Unfortunately we were unaware of the problem with the rubber duck ornament in the bathroom and will of course remove it. We want all our guests to feel welcome and comfortable during their stay and believe a few decorative ornaments add to Woodside's home from home atmosphere and so apologise that these may have caused any problems. The area is surrounded by beautiful countryside and we can only presume the manure smell came from a farm and the distant music may have been from Devon's family attraction The Big Sheep - we have not been made aware of these issues before and are very sorry if they affected your stay in any way.

Bideford is an historic maritime town on the River Torridge in North Devon. There has been a settlement at Bideford for over a thousand years and it has been an important port throughout its history. Today, Bideford is a thriving town with a fine selection of shops (including individual shops), cafes and restaurants, a park and the Atlantic Village Outlet Shopping Centre located on the outskirts of the town. Bideford is in a fantastic location to explore the surrounding area. It is just a few miles from Westward Ho!, which is dominated by two miles of spectacular coastline and proudly retains the prestigious Blue Flag award year upon year. Its sandy beach, backed by a unique pebble ridge, attracts visitors from all over the country and offers fantastic bathing and watersport activities. Just beyond the pebble ridge is Northam Burrows Country Park, which lies in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and has 253 hectares of grassy coastal plain with salt marsh, sand dunes and grasslands. The country park is also home to England's oldest golf course. The South West Coastal Path and the famous traffic-free Tarka Trail are close by, providing magnificent walking and cycling opportunities. The award-winning Big Sheep all weather family attraction and the Ultimate Adventure Centre are approximately a mile down the road, with the Atlantic Village Outlet Shopping Centre and Supermarket a couple of miles away.
