    ““Home from Home””

    We have just returned from a wonderful week at Orchard Cottage. The house is very cosy, welcoming and comfortable. Bare in mind this lovely listed cottage has very low ceilings and the beams are located in all areas of the house so anyone over about 5ft 11 will have to watch their head!

    We have just returned from a wonderful week at Orchard Cottage. The house is very cosy, welcoming and comfortable. Bare in mind this lovely listed cottage has very low ceilings and the beams are located in all areas of the house so anyone over about 5ft 11 will have to watch their head! There was a lovely welcome basket on arrival as well as a very informative handbook with details and numbers of local places to eat , shops opening hours and takeaway info etc.( this was especially helpful as google is not always your friend and Stoke is very tiny). Little details such as a dog towels, extra bowls and info on local dog walks was a great help as well as the selection of puzzles, books, and dvds to help with those rainy days! We loved the pool and used it every day. There were even inflatables to use too! The ping pong table and pool was a winner as well. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you need and there is plenty of space for all. The house was very clean and tidy and the enclosed driveway was a great piece of mind with pets and small children. The house is located right next to fields that are used for grazing cows and sheep so expect the usual farm smells and also flies, bugs and spiders that come with it! It is a great base for those who like to walk along the coastal path and is about a mile and a half walk to the Hartland Quay. Our only comments about our visit were that we presumed the bbq was gas ... so arrived unprepared! It is brick built and right where you park your car so not the most ideal spot, we unfortunately didn’t use it due to the unpredictable weather but maybe a note to advise what sort of bbq or photos may have helped. You ideally need to order food shopping for delivery when staying as nearest supermarket is few miles away ,especially with 10 people to feed!! We enjoyed eating outside when the weather permitted but the wooden pub style benches are not accessible for all and perhaps a set of plastic garden furniture and umbrellas would compliment the outside area. There was nowhere to sit in the shade when the sun did come out. However there were little touches inside that were very thoughtful such as usb chargers in the bedside lamps as there is a lack of plugs due to the age of the building. Facilities for young families is considered, with highchairs, travel cots and stair gates available to use. We would definitely recommend this cottage. The owners are local and very helpful with any extra info you may need. Thank you so much for a super summer holiday ... In the kids words “ It was AWSOME!“

About the location

HARTLAND

Meddon 5.5 miles.

The village of Hartland, whose parish includes the hamlet of Stoke to the west and the village of Meddon in the south, is the most northwesterly settlement in the county of Devon, England. The town of Hartland is remote and hosts many craft shops and potteries in addition to cafés and restaurants. There is a long main street, with cottages either side, leading to the town square and the church of St John. Enjoy views of the coastline in the British Isles from Hartland Point. There are many vantage points, accessible by car or on foot, from which you can admire views of the coast. Not far away is Hartland Quay, with much to see and available accommodation. A local Shipwreck Museum is certainly worth a visit.

Note: Some low lintels.
