The perfect location to relax and get away from the hustle and bustle of daily life. Well kept and comfortable accommodation with the bonus of a secluded garden to sit and listen to the birds singing and if you're lucky watch the deer over the valley. Friendly and helpful owners. I do not own a 4x4 so was a bit worried after reading a review saying I would need one to get to the cottage and to negotiate the drive, yes it's steep but no problems getting around in my fiesta. Lots of places near by to visit, would definitely recommend valley of the rocks, absolutely stunning. Can't wait to go back again and relax.
Access road is very steep with few passing places. Driveway to property is steep, uneven and overgrown with plants and bushes. Glad we had a 4x4! Also abandoned vehicle parked on driveway. Upstairs of property immaculately clean with lovely freshly washed bedding. However bedroom door handle forever falling off (must have been seen when bedding changed!), radiators get warm but are air locked hence noisy. No mop provided and no door mat by balcony exit door. Tin opener broken. No wok. Beds could be made more comfortable with newer mattresses. Kitchen cupboards all smelt of damp / musty to the point where it lingered on dishes/cutlery despite me washing all items upon arrival. Lovely and peaceful first day but not therafter due to owner using trials bike and washing it opposite balcony area (and the quad too). Also owners park their vehicles by balcony one of which has noisy exhaust so disturbs you. Rear garden plants overgrown by kitchen window. Balcony at top of stairs loose and no child gate so could be dangerous for children. Obvious that owners have kept clean and spent a lot on living area furnishings so with a bit more TLC to resolve above then it would be excellent. Would be nice for owners to leave a contact number for if assistance required.
A cosy cottage in a very rural setting, yet only about 3 miles from the small town of Lynton.The central heating kept us cosy, the bathroom/WC was on the ground floor, but only down 8 stairs, and it worked well for us.The only sounds were birds by day, total silence (apart from rain and hail) at night.
The kitchen was well fitted, though a dishwasher would have helped.
There was a lack of coat-hooks, which would have been useful when we returned from a wet walk.
