“A great place to stay”
Reviewed 4 weeks ago for a stay in June 2018

What a lovely holiday home, very well kitted out with everything we needed.
The hot tub was refilled for the start of our week and we went in every night after our daily trips to different places.
Plenty to do nearby and fantastic beaches.
Overall a great place to stay.

“Excellent place to stay”
Reviewed August 30, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

The six of us and our dog arrived after a long journey, to a delicious chocolate cake courtesy of Ocean Cottages. A great way to start our holiday. The accommodation was laid out well and very clean. Well equipped kitchen and a time saving dishwasher. Five minutes drive from Woolacombe beach and plenty of places to eat including The Fortescue pub opposite for no nonsense pub food and very friendly staff. The hot tub was a bonus after a day walking the Tarka Trail which is literally on your doorstep. A wonderful and relaxing time was had by all.

“Lovely place to stay, great location, brilliant service from Ocean Cottages”
Reviewed February 20, 2014 for a stay in February 2014

Very well located - right next to the Tarka trail (must bring a bike next time!) and just a few minutes form the amazing beach at Woolacombe. The sun was streaming through the windows each morning which made the already huge living area feel even larger. Only a short drive to Ifracoombe - a fascinating place to wander around.

I felt relaxed here as soon as we arrived - Ocean Cottages made everything so easy for us. Thank you. We appreciated all the little touches - this felt like a home from home.

I have visited North Devon many times before but had forgotten just how good it is during the winter months with fewer people around. It was so peaceful. Just right for a much needed break. Highly recommended.

“A lovely contemporary holiday home with a great sociable living area.”
Reviewed June 29, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

High Tides is a lovely holiday home where you can relax in plenty of space. I loved the open planned living area, that is what sold the property to me in the first place and the fact that the floors where wooden which was easy for me to keep tidy as I took my pets. The property is right next to the Tarka Trail where you can walk for miles or ride your bike in the beautiful countryside and nearest towns.
Woolacombe and its beautiful beach is only a short drive down the hill. We enjoyed walking through the farmland and ending up on the beach and the Red Barn pub which is a real sun trap.

Liked best: Great living area and garage was very handy.
Liked least: Garden. This is a personal point but we found that for the first few days our dog was protective of the garden as there is a public path over the fence (Tarka Trail). He barked sometimes which worried me as we had neighbours.
