“Excellent place to stay and explore Devon...”
Reviewed August 8, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Our family of four and one dog stayed in Exmoor cottage. There are three good sized bedrooms and the whole cottage is decorated to a high standard with beautiful bed linen, light, clean rooms and plenty of storage courtesy of some lovely wooden draw units. A well equipped kitchen, that you can actually prepare and cook food in, thanks to with a good set of quality sharp knives. (How many times have I been to accommodation over the years and have tried to prep meat, fish or vegetables with an old blunt small knife!). Owners are a great couple and are happy to assist with advice or help....nothing is too much trouble. I would thoroughly recommend this cottage to anyone wanting to explore North or South Devon, with Woolacombe, Croyde,etc only a short drive away and RHS Rosemoor gardens and Dartmoor Crystal ten minutes drive......Rosemoor is particularly good, and there are things to do for kids and a great restaurant there..... We will hopefully return soon..

“Thank you thank you thank you”
Reviewed June 11, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

for an amazing week in your lovely cottage. The place was fabulous with the most stunning views from the outside seating area. We came with young children and grandparents and we loved it all. Lory and Colin were so welcoming and helpful without being intrusive. We were well placed to visit all the best parts of North Devon. Croyde Beach and Saunton Sands firm beach faves, we loved Lynton/Lynmouth and Woody Bay for the funicular and steam train rides and we even ventured down to Cornwall for a pasty and a look around Padstow. The weather was amazing which helped. Keep doing what you are doing Lory and Colin, its a stunning part of the country & we hope to return. You've given me faith in uk holidays!!

“Better than home”
Reviewed August 20, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

Over the years our family have stayed in many cottages but this one was by far the best equipped, the beds the most comfortable and the hosts the most gracious. Nothing was too much trouble. We even had a lovely carrot cake left for us on our arrival. The dogs loved it as there is a safe enclosed area for them to run free in. Lots of lovely walks and views across to Exmoor. An ideal place.

“Great accomodation in a wonderful setting.”
Reviewed July 10, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

My partner and I (and two dogs) stayed for a week during a spell of great weather (always helps!). The cottage (Dartmoor) has three well presented bedrooms, an adequate bathroom (shower over bath) and a lovely open plan kitchen/diner/living room with all mod cons. It was clean and fresh with nice hardwood furnishings, a real homely feel. Outside there is a guests garden with two picnic tables and a bench and there is a further paddock area which is ideal for dog owners. The views from the garden are splendid. It was very peaceful. The surrounding area is great to explore with Barnstable just up the road and loads of pubs/restaurants a short drive away. The owners, Lory and Colin, are very friendly and flexible with staying dates/leaving times. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this cottage.

“A Perfect Hideaway”
Reviewed March 16, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

Booked the cottage as a last minute getaway for the two of us. The cottage was secluded and private, a great place to get away from everything.

The cottage itself was well-equipped, clean, modern and very comfortable. With a cake on arrival!

Would definitely stay again!

“Spacious, very clean and comfortable”
Reviewed February 25, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

This is our third stay as a family at Crossways Cottages. Our most recent visit was in Dartmoor Cottage. The cottage is very well decorated and spacious to accommodate all 6 of us plus a visit from our family who live near by in Chittlehampton. There is plenty of seating and the kitchen is well equipped.
The beds are very comfortable and the bed linen is great quality. The Nintendo wii was a great hit with our 7 year old son!
Thank you to Lory for being so welcoming as usual. Thank you for the Hot Cross Buns on arrival. Lovely touch.
We will be back again!

“Lovely cottage, beautiful countryside, great days out”
Reviewed August 29, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

My friend and I stayed at Dartmoor Cottage for a week of total relaxation from hectic jobs and it certainly did the trick. The cottage is decorated to a very high standard and well equipped with everything you need. The owners are close by should you need to know anything and made us feel really welcome, without being obtrusive - and the cream tea on arrival was a lovely touch (and very yummy!). We could easily reach the coast within the hour to do some fabulous coastal walks around Woolacombe, Ilfracombe, Lynmouth and Clovelly and enjoy the stunning scenery. There are some great pubs for eating in - we particularly enjoyed the Blue Ball Inn at Countisbury near Lynmouth (great food and dog friendly) and found the welcome at the more local Cranford Inn warm and friendly (they even did us two roast lunches even though they'd stopped serving food by the time we got there). It was lovely to come back after a long walk, stretch out on the two big sofas to watch a DVD and then fall into the super comfy beds at the end of the day. Highly recommended.
