Another fantastic week at Willowfields with loads to do. Great base for plenty of days out. Woolacombe Beach fantastic. Homemade curry from the Murco Garage well worth trying, if you fancy a night off cooking. Authentic Indian cooking. Can't wait to come back next year. Stephen and Ella are simply great hosts. They can't do enough for you. Very friendly... More

We have just spent 5 days at Saunton Sands Cottages (formerly Willowfield Lake Cottages) and had a brilliant time. There is so much on site for children to do (mine aged 4 and 6). I took a chance and only packed clothes and the gamble paid off. They have an amazing playroom with toys for all ages, a Wii with... More

in this superb location. We have two boys aged 11 and 8 and the freedom and independence that this place affords them is marvellous. We value our family holidays and seldom go back to the same place twice but this is well worth making an exception for. Ella and Stephen are such great hosts and go above and beyond expectation....

We stayed this summer with our 3 children and had a fabulous time with friends and family. The grounds are beautiful along with the well equiped cottages and excellent facilities for children. However, I will not be coming again. It is very expensive for a holiday home, where one feels constantly overlooked. There is little privacy, especially from the owners.... More

DevonIronman, Owner at Saunton Sands Farm, responded to this review

Siobhan had decided without speaking to us to invite a large number of local family and friends to the cottage complex to use our facilities and to have a party on the Sunday morning following the arrival on the Saturday. We found a large number of people who were not staying here monopolising the facilities preventing our paying guests from... More

We spent a fab week at Willowfield Lake Cottages in early September this year. Although the weather was not particularly kind to us we managed to have a really lovely week with our two small children, aged 3.5 and 1.5. Stephen and Ella could not have been more welcoming and the whole site was exceptionally well maintained. There really is... More

We have just returned from our fourth stay at Willowfield and have once again loved every moment. Stephen and Ella were perfect hosts and surprised us this time with the most welcome added addition of a Devon cream tea on arrival. The cottage was immaculate as always and very well equipped. We chose to stay in Magpie as it is... More

Another week in Wagtail cottage in August - our fifth time - every time I search for other seaside holiday accommodation for families with young children I find no where that compares - if you find comparable facilities it is twice the price. If you find somewhere else in this price bracket the facilities are not so good - so... More

We have not long got back from a week's stay in Kingfisher cottage. The standard of this site is excellent, very clean and well equipped. Our children 9 and 4 really enjoyed the playroom and pool. Stephen and Ella made us very welcome and there was a cream tea waiting for us on our arrival. We have already booked to... More

Stayed in Kingfisher for a week and had a lovely time. Saunton beach and woolecoombe beaches were both v good. Ella and Stephen did everything to make our family welcome, they provided bbqs kids fishingnets and boogie boards which saved us buying them as we only wanted them whilst on hol's. also really nice pool with lots of inflatables for...
