Lovely cottage, large attractive garden, very quiet and private. Sarah, the owner, was very pleasant to speak to. Did several walks straight from the door. Would not hesitate to recommend, just be aware that the approach road is very narrow especially for a wide vehicle.(Read more)
Superlative. This is a fabulous apartment, we loved it. It's location to the SW coastal footpath enabled us to do a lot of exploration of the area on foot. The views are sublime and the communal garden is a lovely spot to while away a few hours on a sunny day just drinking in the views. Inside, the ...(Read more)
All in all we found it a very comfortable, relaxing and well appointed property. Even though the owners weren't there when we arrived, they made us very welcome by the treats left for us (beautiful scones by the way) and we appreciated their thoughtfulness and attention to detail in helping us ...(Read more)

We ...(Read more)

The owners were so pleasant and friendly and the Collies really helped our son with his dog phobia to the point that he didn't want to leave! The Cottage was warm, very clean and well furnished ...(Read more)

The sofa was rather low and would would benefit from additional support/cushions, otherwise everything else was ...(Read more)

The person who dealt with us took the time to find a number of cottages for us to choose from and really for us where the cottage was ...(Read more)
The cottage had everything that we needed apart from the parking which as it was on a steep hill we found it difficult as we had a baby with us. The views from outside of the sea were magnificent. On arrival they had left milk and some biscuits which I thought was nice.(Read more)
Lovely homely cottage for two people and ideally situated to explore both South and North Devon. Local pub, The Castle, only a few minutes walk down the road with excellent food although the cottage is well equipped should you wish to self cater.(Read more)
