    • “I think some details need to be checked more carefully Re. access. Also the washing machine was remote from the cottage, meaning you had walk back up the steep slope to get to it. Good location very nice live fire in the lounge. But this property not very good for older folk, Re access.”

    Mr Brooks, Gillingham, August 2018

    • “A great and characterful cottage in a lovely area. We thoroughly enjoyed our long weekend. Many thanks.”

    Mr Hookey, Falfield, June 2018

    • “We thoroughly recommend this accommodation for couples, it is comfortable with an amazing four-poster bed and full of character. The small garden is beautiful, peaceful and private.”

    Ms Mallen, June 2018

    • “The Bothy was a cosy and welcoming retreat on the days the weather wild and wet. In good weather its sheltered location made it a peaceful haven and an excellent base for reaching the Heddon Valley.”

    Mr Patrick, PONTYPRIDD, March 2018

    • “Really lovely holiday accommodation in a very scenic and quite location at the end of a farm lane. Pretty little private garden which is a real haven for birds. Wood burning fire makes for lovely cozy evenings.”

    Mr Windsor, Chippenham, September 2018

    • “This is the first helpful holidays property that did not have a cafetiere or a hairdryer or dishwasher. Since the kitchen was so tiny I understand that there was little room for all the facilities I have come to expect from your listings but it would be really useful to have the omissions from the usual list pointed out on the website. Whilst I could not have packed a dishwasher, the other items would have fitted in the car!”

    Ms Hall, Bristol, July 2018

The Property

2 miles from Parracombe, and a 2½ mile walk from the little pebble beach at dramatic Heddon's Mouth, deep in a lush tranquil wooded valley, three cottages which started life as grain and animal barns. They nestle, with the farmhouse, in the shelter of mature trees and ancient hedgerows - full of wild flowers, birds and butterflies at the right time of year - and have lovely views to Trentishoe Down. There are 40 acres of pasture, streams, wild wood and moorland which you are welcome to explore. This is terrific walking country, far away from the hustle of modern urban life, and an ideal spot to enjoy its calm. Timeless green lane and woodland footpath (walking boots needed) to Hunters Inn, about 1½ miles. Shared use of laundry room (washing machine, tumble drier) and games barn (table tennis, pool table). Spring water.The Bothy: a private detached single-storey cottage with French windows overlooking its little wild garden. Approached via 80 yards of steep sloping path, 4 steps up to glazed doors into large open-plan room with high beams, painted wood floor (rug), antique furniture, comfy sofa, TV/DVD, dining table/chairs, woodburner and imposing four-poster bed (5’); 2 steps up to little kitchen with combi-microwave, fridge and electric cooker, through to shower-room (suite). No children, except pre-crawling babies. A romantic cottage.

Parracombe: tiny village (great pub, medieval church with famous Georgian interior, PO/shop, pottery) near Exmoor's dramatic coast in a valley midway between Lynton/Lynmouth, 8 miles, and Combe Martin, 6 miles. This is steep, dramatic, deep-valleyed, farming, wooded and moorland country: very beautiful. Wide sandy beaches at Woolacombe and Croyde, about 12 miles.
