A beautifully peaceful location but still close enough to Barnstaple town.
The cottage has amazing views over the Devon countryside.
Recieved such a warm welcome from owners Victoria and Mark.
Would definitely return.
Stayed: April 2018
Such a lovely place! Excellent accommodation clean, warm and very welcoming. Such a perfect place to explore the beautiful country side. I wish I could have stayed longer and will definitely be back.
Just what the doctor ordered. A quiet and peaceful self catered hide away in the remote hills of North Devon.
Beautiful views across the countryside and you can even see the sea in the distance.
Victoria couldn’t be more helpful with any advice I needed for shopping/sight seeing and walks but otherwise left me to my own devices to relax and recharge batteries.
Highly recommend and will return later this year!
This was just what we needed a short break.in beautiful Devon, peaceful and relaxing in lovely accomodation
The location is absolutely superb, with lovely views from the garden. Although situated in a quiet lane in rolling countryside the property is only a couple of miles from Barnstaple. A great area for hiking along the rugged coast or for cycling along the traffic free Tarka trail. The property was immaculately clean and we had a most comfortable three days there. Many thanks to Victoria for a welcoming gift of delicious scones, fresh cream and strawberry jam also for half a dozen eggs!
First of all I must say that Victoria was helpful when it came to rebooking my holiday at late notice due to a broken foot, extra £100 paid was paid for this change however.
On arrival we found the cottage was sadly quite dirty, however on contacting Victoria she spent her partner Mark to clean the bathroom again where there were numerous hairs everywhere. The second day bought a plight of flies in the sky light where it had been left open by perhaps previous holiday makers; at least 20 flies in the skylight. Again this was rectified by Mark. Sadly me and my partner did not get a single relaxing morning due to building works commending literally right outside the bedroom window on a separate property at 8am every weekday morning and often earlier. Also unbeknownst to ourselves, the owners property is very close to the cottage , and the family and children have to walk past the house to leave/enter. Again this could prove noisy during school runs early in the morning. sadly the relaxing holiday I had been looking forward to was spoilt somewhat by the loud building works all day throughout the week. Because of this me and my partner opted to spend as little time in the otherwise cosy cottage as we would have liked. I really don't like leaving bad reviews however in this instance I was disappointed and had been looking forward to the much needed break for a long time. To credit Victoria she did come and apologise for the building works but this does not stop them from happening. Almost £500 for a week off peak that was sadly disappointing, sorry.
