  • “Lovely spacious cottage.”

    5 Adults shared this and we had entry of space. Rural as expected. Didn't expect it to be so close to the pub that every morning between 5.30 and 6 you were woken by the comings and goings of the bin men and trades people. The garden is very very small the picture taken with a wide angle lens is very misleading. Cottage far to hot with Rayburn on all the time made it unpleasant at night even with all the windows open.

    5 Adults shared this and we had entry of space. Rural as expected. Didn't expect it to be so close to the pub that every morning between 5.30 and 6 you were woken by the comings and goings of the bin men and trades people. The garden is very very small the picture taken with a wide angle lens is very misleading. Cottage far to hot with Rayburn on all the time made it unpleasant at night even with all the windows open. Thank goodness it wasn't the height of summer! Lack of cleaning products and minimal larder bits, oil, herbs etc doesn't help when you have a 20 minute drive to a supermarket. Check in not till 5pm is rather late don't blame it on Covid 3pm would have been much better. All round they could have done better.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave this feedback, we take this very seriously. We are close to a good pub and receive many positive comments about this in our guest book. The collection that you refer to usually takes place once a week. We have spoken to the landlord, and he tells us that he is changing the rubbish collection company and so this issue is being addressed. As the property is a converted chapel, there is not a lot of land. We do state that the garden is small in the property description and most of our guests are very happy with it. We're very pleased with our housekeeper, who ensures that there are supplies of anti-bacterial products, wipes, cloths, dishwasher tablets etc. We also leave salt, pepper, tea, coffee, sugar etc as well as a welcome cream tea. The Rayburn is left on the lowest setting and heats the towel rails, all other radiators have been individually switched off for the summer. For the moment, the check-in time must remain at 5pm as we really do need the extra time to deep clean the property. We're pleased to hear that you had plenty of space and hope that you enjoyed your stay. Property Owner

The property

1½ miles up from Welcombe Mouth, a prettily furnished cottage attached to an old chapel in the tiny epicentre of Welcombe village, 100 yards from the ancient thatched pub.

For the reasonably fit, the cove is a pleasant valley walk downhill (parking by the beach).

Access through small, neat, enclosed garden (bench) and down 4 steps (no handrail) to open porch.

Hall for coats/boots.

Big farmhouse-style kitchen/dining room (dishwasher, microwave, fridge, electric cooker) with beams and Rayburn (for central heating only), and utility room with washing machine, tumble drier and fridge-freezer.

Living room with TV/DVD, laminate floor and woodburner.

From hall, stairs (stairgate) up to four bedrooms (beds with footboards) - two double, and two twin; bathroom (suite, shower over bath) and shower-room (suite).

A warm, cosy cottage within easy reach of an excellent pub. Welcombe Mouth: cove (rocks and sand at low tide, great surfing) between spectacular cliffs in one of the most unspoilt parts of the West Country, and an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Coast Path, great birdwatching.

Welcombe hamlet (good food pub, pottery), 1 mile; community shop, 4 miles.

Hartland (large village with shops and pubs), 10 miles; Bude, 12.

About the location

WELCOMBE

Bude 12 miles; Bideford 14 miles.

A pretty country village just one mile from the high cliffs, rocky coves and golden sands of the north Devon/Cornwall coast, as well as the beach at Welcombe Mouth with its sand, rocks, and some fabulous waves to ride. West, along the coast, are excellent beaches at Widemouth Bay, Sandymouth and Bude. To the north the coast path winds its way toward Hartland Point Lighthouse and on to Clovelly (8 miles) with its steep cobbled streets leading down to the harbour and pub below. No cars allowed here but you can hire a donkey for the ride! In the nearby area are several farm and theme parks, golf courses and outstanding gardens whilst the amenities of Bude are a mere 12 miles away. Everything for an enjoyable holiday.
