First of all before our arrival, I recieved an email from the owner whcih provided lots of information useful to our stay including the best places to eat and other places to visit. The cottage was very clean and a nice welcome gift left for us on arrival, beeding was supplied and enough crockery etc to allow us to cook all week. The cottage was situated ten minutes from Woolacoombe itself in a lovely area with a few other cottages. It wasnt hard to find and extra directions supplied by the owner. Communication was brilliant throughout and even during our stay. The area the cottage was in is fairlt quiet, which was a nice thing for us. Ilfracombe and Barnstaple were also close by via a short drive. If you’re looking for a nice relaxing stay in the pleasant surroundings devon has to offer, then I would definitely recommended a stay here.
The cottage is easy to get to and very peaceful. It's on a small holiday park with a pool and surrounded by fields. The cottage had everything we needed, although it was a challenge drying towels after swimming each day....but the weather is beyond anyone's control! The children loved having the pool on site and used it every day, in the sun and the rain. The cottage was really clean and tidy, very comfortable and had a well equipped kitchen. There were lots of leaflets informing us about places to visit, and games and DVDs to keep everyone occupied.
It's within easy reach of all the local towns and beaches. We especially enjoyed finding some hidden gems, like Lee and the Ilfracombe Tunnels Beach which are great for climbing the rocks and exploring rock pools.
The owners were very quick to deal with a problem that arose while we were there - they sorted it quickly and kept us updated.
Thank you, we really enjoyed our stay and would love to go there again.
Lovely gift pack of wine, chocolates, and a few other things as a greeting. Cottage was clean, tidy and cosy. There's an outdoor pool on the site, but you have to drive for anything else - having said that, there are plenty of beaches within a short distance (glorious beaches such as Woolacombe and Croyde too), a supermarket ten minutes away, a few small towns for a coffee or wander, pleasant villages and a handful of kid friendly attractions if the weather isn't good enough for the beach. Enjoyable week, thank you.
Set in a lovely valley with views across the North Devon countryside, yet within 5 mins of the 13th best beach in the world and the No. 1 best UK beach (according to the TripAdvisor community) - Woolacombe.This property has everything that you might need and quite a few things that we had forgotten to bring. It is most definitely a home from home. There were plenty of quality consumables topped up for our arrival and some lovely welcoming Easter gifts - a real personal touch from the owners. What was also lovely was that Steve was in contact to ensure all was in good order. The cottage was clean, freshly decorated to a high standard, well heated and there was always plenty of hot water. Our kids loved all the games, movies and toys. There is so much to do in North Devon and we have been visiting Willingcott Valley for 20 years but still we find little secret spots. I can easily say that this is the best experience that we have had. The golf course has closed since we last visited but that makes the setting more serene and nature has brought the golf course back to rolling hills of green countryside. The local pub serves great food and has an amazing outdoor play area - it's a 5 minute walk. We loved the cottage, the heart-felt hospitality and the setting. We will go back very soon. Thanks for making a very special week.
Just returned from a great break in this cottage. The place was spotlessly clean and catered well for my husband and I, my daughter and our 2 year old granddaughter . The facilities in the cottage more than met our expectations. We hope to return soon.

We,as a family of 7 including 5 teenagers found the cottage and surrounding area to be perfect for our needs. The heated outdoor pool was great and only a 5 min drive to the beautiful Woolacombe beach. Nice pub 5 min walk away and shop/petrol station also nearby. Would come back again for sure
