“Great Holiday Retreat”
Reviewed August 13, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We stayed in both the Buttery and Cromlech ( together the Crescent) and it accommodated our large family group ( 7 months to grandparents) in bright airy rooms, well appointed in both houses. Rear and front galleries to the properties added an extra little sun time for the non-active. There is no garden area which is fine if you get the good weather but could be a drawback otherwise. The houses were roomy and well equipped in terms of kitchen, and utility rooms. Access between the two by the rear was easy and the main dining in the Buttery accommodated us all for meals in the evening. The whole place allowed for time together and private time as people wanted it. The village of Mortehoe is a delightful place and base with a little bit of everything in terms of meeting needs, post office, shops, national trust property, pubs with the Chichester Arms being excellent to drop in or eat as we did. The towns of Ifracombe and Woolacombe are easily accessible. Parking for tow cars right outside the property is very tight but workable and extra spaces can be obtained through the owners. On that level Dominic is very attentive to his clients. Nothing was too much trouble and any questions were answered by email promptly and efficiently. There is plenty of information in the house in the pack to give you some sense of the whole place too. Good surfing, good beach-combing, good walks, good souvenir shopping, good holiday. Really pleased with the whole experience.

“Beautiful location, wonderful walking and beaches”
Reviewed June 28, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

The Crescent provides a brilliant space for a large group. It is well equipped and really sensibly designed so you don't all have to be in the same area at the same time. It is important to note that there isn't a garden, but with the beach so close this wasn't a problem for us. If you are a group of 18 you would find sitting at a table in one kitchen a squash.
Mortehoe is a lovely village with a great local shop, pubs and takeaways so you really don't need to get in your car once you arrive. There are lovely, small beaches within 10 minutes walk and the brilliant Woolacombe beach is only 15/20 minutes walk away.
If walking, there are lovely walks which include going around Morte Point where we spotted seals!

Hi Abigail, great to hear about your weekend. Yes 18 people all dining simultaneously is the limit for chair space and elbow room. Seating up to 14 people or up to 10 people allows a less invasive table configurations. Glad you were able to find all the fun you needed without driving around! :) Dom

“Fantastic for big groups who love being by the sea”
Reviewed June 17, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We had an absolutely brilliant stay at the Crescent. It was great, family friendly, accommodation for a big group, with really nice extra touches like lots of games and books, places to hang the wetsuits and body boards to use. Dominic the owner couldn't have been more helpful, and provided lots of information in advance of our stay. It was only a short (although slightly hilly!) walk down to Woolacombe beach to enjoy the sand and surf and there were lots of lovely things right on the doorstep too - pub, deli, delicious fish and chips! Would highly recommend.

“Fantastically appointed houses in a lovely village in a great part of the world.”
Reviewed March 29, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We rented both houses for a 50th birthday party and had 17 staying.
Firstly the communication from Dom in securing the booking was excellent. There is plenty of excellent information on the website but Dom was also very good at sending / reminding us the pertinent bits - like where to park when we arrived, how to gain access, what was where and so on - at timely intervals.
The houses themselves are very well designed and renovated to a high but practical standard. There are some lovely features & architectural indulgences here, but that does not detract from the fact that both houses are fully functional and you didn't feel like you were in a gallery, afraid to touch things. Boogie boards to borrow out the back were a lovely touch.
Its a great location for access to both the beach & dog walking areas. I highly recommend a stroll to Morte Point for the views of the bay. The village and pub opposite are delightful too. 1 minor downside was that although the dining table in the Buttery is large, we werent able to have all 17 sitting down to the 50th dinner together, managing probably 13, but that was a minor issue, and doubt many groups would want to do this anyway.

Overall a very good weekend break. Highly recommended and we will be coming back.

“Fantastic accommodation, great location, well equipped house with all you need.”
Reviewed February 2, 2016 for a stay in January 2016

Loved my first visit to The Crescent. The houses are well located and a short distance to the beach & coastal walk. A nice design and well equipped with somewhere to dry wetsuits, good games e.t.c. and large kitchen tables for that well-earned post surf feast!

“An awesome, cosy weekend with surf and cliff-top walks”
Reviewed January 26, 2016 for a stay in January 2016

It was so good to come back to one of my favourite places in the world! My friends and I had a great weekend and I loved introducing those who hadn't been to The Cresent before to the houses and area.

“Fantastic, well equipped and ideally located house for 1yr old through to grandparents”

Stunning location and really well equipped house, great kitchen and set up well with pace for hanging wetsuits and drying area.

All bedrooms are a great size, plenty of bathrooms with quality fittings, wifi for the 13 yr old who can't be unconnected!

Parking for one car, everything you need for a family get together...

Can't fault the buttery, owners comms were great, and the local shops and pubs are really friendly, with wollacombe just down the road.

We will defiantly be back! Highly recommended.
