“A lovely house”
Reviewed April 12, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Possibly the best holiday accommodation we have ever stayed in. It is a very spacious, stylish and well-equipped house in a pretty village with good pubs, an excellent chippie, a useful general store for basics and a children’s playground. With three bathrooms, a downstairs loo and a massive kitchen it was ideal for our three generation family holiday.
You are minutes away from some lovely coastal walks and it’s a 15 minute downhill walk to the lovely sandy beaches at Woolacombe which offers traditional seaside fun without the “tat” that often goes with it.
Highly recommended.

“Perfect house, perfect location, perfect views.”
Reviewed August 27, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

I booked the Buttery for my Sister in laws hen weekend in August and had a wonderful time.

The house was clean and spacious with big bedrooms and lots of bathrooms. The kitchen was fantastic and catered for all our needs. There were 12 of us staying and not once did it feel cramped.

The location was fantastic and the pub across the road is also worth a visit or 3!

The only negative thing i have to say is that there were clear signs of damp in the Master Bedroom, this was raised with the owners and i have been told that this is being fixed. It wasn't an issue and is to be expected in a property of this age but it did look slightly off putting. Overall this was a very minor negative point in an overall fantastic stay.

Thanks Dom - I hope to be back some day.

Management Response
Sep 3, 2014
Hi, thanks for the review and we definitely agree that there was a problem with a damp (not mouldy I think) wall during your stay, for which many apologies. The house has some 60cm-thick walls so when a wall gets wet (in this case a neighbour's gutter failed in a storm) it can take many weeks to dry out ... and until it is dried out no amount of redecorating will be effective. We target damp problems as soon as they appear, starting with the root cause and ending with redecoration, but in a big old Atlantic-facing house there are occasional instances of peeling paint.
Yes the Chich is a great pub and getting better every year!
We hope to welcome you back to The Buttery again one day.
:) Dom and Iona

10 of us stayed her for a long weekend at the beginning of August to celebrate a 30th birthday. We had an amazing time, everything was perfect, not one complaint from any of us! It is a fantastic house in a great spot run by lovely helpful people. I would most definitely stay again!

“Lovely family home near sea and village”
Reviewed August 4, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Super house with everything you need for a good family holiday. Plenty of space and well equipped in a pretty village with pubs and a very good shop. The beach is within walking distance and others are a short drive away.

Stayed in July 2014, dad + 3 teenage daughters and their friends, who were booked into surf school at woolacombe . House was great and nicely presented, rooms big, high ceilings, games, videos, dvd's etc, kitchen huge and well equipped. Lots of walks for dog, including a section of woolacombe beach where she could run off the lead. WI-FI was fine, 3-5 Mb. Hope to return!

Stayed here for my birthday with a group of friends in the beginning of June to go surfing. Dom is great to deal with, very patient and understanding of problems that arise from trying to deal with ten students. The house is stunning and so comfortable, immaculately clean and the beds were perfect after spending all day in the ocean. Cannot recommend the place enough for all sorts of people and we already want to go back!
