    “We love staying at Seal Cottage, this is the second time we’ve stayed there as the house is great and the location is spot on for being close enough to the town and Woolacombe beech, while being far enough out that it’s quiet and peaceful.”

    Having stayed twice now the only thing that could improve it would be some blackout blinds, even if they were temporary ones that could be stick to the glass with suction cups. As adults it’s lovely being woken by bright mornings……but having toddlers it would be great if their room could stay darker in the morning and early evening when they go to bed. It’s not a deal breaker and we would still stay again, it could just be handy. Overall we are very pleased to have found ...
