“Lovely cottage in a beautiful, peaceful location”

We were met with a very warm welcome from the owners, and a bottle of wine and fresh flowers were waiting for us in the cottage - a really lovely touch. The owners couldn't have been more helpful, including when we needed a postal delivery for my birthday which coincided with our stay.

The cottage is comfortable and cosy, beautifully furnished, with lots of character. The kitchen had everything we needed (and more) and everything in the cottage was spotlessly clean.

We enjoyed sitting on the patio area on sunny days, and we saw lots of wildlife in the pretty and very well tended garden. The dawn chorus was wonderful!

Thank you Tom and Charlie for a lovely week.

We had a very friendly welcome from the owners, the cottage was lovely, clean and well stocked, we couldn't complain about anything . We had full use of the garden and the dogs were made welcome as well. We will definitely be returning.

Reviewed August 25, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Myself, my husband, our two children and our puppy stayed here in early august. It was exactly what we needed a lovely quite little cottage in the middle of the beautiful North Devon countryside. Away from other holiday makers, yet in good spot to be able to travel for short journeys to all the wonderful beaches and attractions in North Devon.
Tom and Charlie and their dogs were so warm and welcoming to all of us. They honestly could not do enough, fresh eggs and a bottle of red wine was left out on our arrival,their knowledge of where to go and what to do was invaluable. At one point both my children invited themselves into Tom and Charlie's cottage and they were completely unfazed.
Tom looked after our puppy on two of the days for no extra charge, so we could go and explore places, she wasn't allowed.
The cottage was clean and well stocked, the only thing missing for me was a hairdryer. The wifi was unreliable which was a shame.
The garden was huge, with a little field to the side. They had chickens and ducks, my daughter even collected some eggs with Tom. The outside space was fantastic for the children and puppy. ( I think she enjoyed herself the most).
Charlie baked cakes for us as well, and supplied ice cream to go with, the lemon drizzle cake was to die for.
The cottage does feel private, yet Tom and Charlie are very approachable. Thier hospitality helped to make this holiday really special. I would go again tomorrow if I could. The only spoiler was the great British weather.

Very pleased to say the superfast broadband has finally come to Kentisbury. Should all be up and running by mid-September so the wi-fi will work properly at last.

Hooray!

Myself and daughter took my Mum and Aunt for a North Devon holiday, choose it because of photos, write ups and dog friendly. We were not disappointed in any way. Tom and Charlie very thoughtful and informative about local area. Their pets all fantastic, would be ideal for young familiy holiday, beaches about 15-20 mins car drive. Ideally situated to explore all aspects of the area. Highly recommended, car required.

The cottage is beautiful and brilliantly equipped with all you could need. Very warm and cosy with lashings of hot water.Comfy bed and loads of storage.The outside space is superb , with stunning views, and geese,ducks and other assorted wildfowl strutting their stuff.
Very handily placed to explore all that North Devon has to offer.
The hosts are just next door should you need anything,but the cottage is very private.
Lovely people and I'll be going back as soon as I can!!
My dog,Daisy, had a lovely time too :-)
