Great location, very peaceful, ideal for getting out and about.
Ms Bridgland August 2018
We had a really enjoyable family holiday at Little Yeo. The cottage was comfortable and well equipped. We were impressed by how well the space within the cottage is used and it worked really well for us as a family of four (2 adults, 2 children aged 10 and 8). We were out and about most of the time, but still had plenty of space to relax in the cottage in the evenings. We also really enjoyed the outside space. Despite the grey weather we enjoyed several meals outside in the area shown in the photos. The girls ( - and parents) had a lot of fun playing in the good sized garden. Locally we enjoyed a challenging (hilly) family bike ride around the lanes and a visit to the local community shop at Buckland Brewer. Weatherwise it was a grey week, but it didn't stop us from getting out and about and enjoying both the coast and countryside. Our top tips for family days out: (1) Body boarding at Saunton Sands - we hired suits and boards there. (2) Biking along the (much flatter) Tarka Trail. We brought our own bikes but we could have hired them at Fremington Quay. We were also impressed by a couple of cafes which have clearly made the effort to go 'plastic free' - Saunton Break Cafe at Saunton Sands and The Glorious Oyster just off the Tarka Trail near Instow.

Lovely cottage in a very peaceful location. Home made cake and bottle of wine on arrival very much appreciated. Owners very friendly without being intrusive, gave us lots of ideas of places to visit and where to find good pubs ( the local one is fantastic, great food and very welcoming).
We would certainly consider returning in the future.
Mrs Entwistle August 2017
Lovely situation for our next leg of the South West Coastal Path. Great location for visiting Westward Ho, Clovelly and Instow. Our dog Jess really appreciated the stick pile, nearly as much as we enjoyed the home made cake and bottle of wine!
Mr Rosson July 2017
We had a lovely stay in this cosy cottage. The surrounding area is really beautiful and relaxing. You can only hear the birds and the sheeps, no cars. If we decide to visit South Devon again next year, I'll would be happy to book this cottage again. Its very close to all tourist attractions you'll have to see. We want to thanks Classic cottages for the beautiful en relaxing holliday. Kind regards, Bjorn en Cathy, Oostkamp, Belgium.
Mr Edmonds June 2017
A very well appointed and comfortable cottage in a beautiful part of Devon. Even though we had some very bad wet weather we still thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Even Flo, the dog, had a wonderful time!
Mrs Knighton September 2016
Loved the cottage, tastefully decorated and is so well equipped it has everything and I mean everything you would need. Would recommend to friends, a great base to see North Devon.
Mr Hilton September 2016
Well appointed cottage in a very rural and woodland setting. Ideal for touring North Devon . Friendly welcome and none intrusive owners .
Mrs Cartledge August 2016
A wonderful idyllic cottage , the owners were so friendly and didn't mind our dog roaming about, the wine , cake and flowers were a special touch especially after the long drive down there . We loved hearing all the animals so really felt as though we were in the middle of nowhere but felt close enough to amenities . Westward Ho! beach is a must .
Mrs Lloyd July 2016
Real home from home. Clean, quaint, comfy - lovely owner who popped round to make sure we were ok. Gorgeous home made cake and wine left for us. What a lovely touch! Thank you! Def would return
Mr Thomas June 2016
Beautiful location and so quiet, only the sounds of birds and sheep, for a Townie it was idyllic.
Mrs Bennett March 2016
So very friendly and a wonderful location.
Mrs Newmarch December 2015
We had a really lovely stay celebrating our wedding anniversary and taking our baby on her first holiday. The owners made us very welcome and the cottage had everything we needed to be comfortable and happy.
Mrs Wild October 2015
Myself my two daughters and baby granddaughter all had a lovely relaxing stay. The cottage is in an idyllic location but close enough to get to all amenities nearby.
Ms Murden June 2015
Having thought the cake and wine in the photos were just for decoration it was very touching to see they were real...and delicious! Little Yeo is a beautiful property with friendly owners (and a beautiful young springer spaniel). We and our two spaniels spent a lovely few days there. We'd definitely recommend and expect to be there again this time next year.
Mr Hughes March 2015
Even tho I was nursing a recently broken shoulder we found the cottage cosy and comfortable. We had a lovely week and enjoyed visiting the surrounding areas and just relaxing. Thank you for making us so welcome and given the opportunity we would return for another week. It is a well loved and well looked after cottage and it was a joy to stay in. Thank you.
Miss Kaya October 2014
We had a very enjoyable, comfortable and relaxing stay; the location was peaceful and secluded, which was perfect for a restful getaway. It was close to many tourist attractions and not too far from the beaches which was ideal. The cottage was very comfortable and cosy and the seating area outside was a lovely addition. The flowers, home-made cake and wine that were beautifully laid out on arrival, added a very welcoming touch too!
Mr Gopp July 2014
It is a very nice cottage with a beautiful peaceful surrounding. The owners are very friendly and the meadow in front of the cottage is perfect for dogs. We really enjoyed our stay there. Futhermore the cottage is very well equipped and the decoration is lovely.
Mr Stanley June 2014
If you like a quiet secluded place to stay then this is ideal
Mr Kearsley May 2014
Little Yeo is a gem. Set in a quiet location with only the sheep & rooks to disturb you. Upon arrival the owners had left a home made sponge, bottle of wine and smarties for the boys. Both were friendly as was the cat. The cottage was clean and cosy. Plenty of room out side for the boys to run around. Instructions for the cottage are to hand along with a list of pubs/attractions. The Coach & Horses at Buckland Brewer is a must. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
Mr Schofield April 2014
A lovely and well-equipped cottage for any quiet break
Mr Boothby October 2013
This cottage is very good for walkers
Mrs Schulz August 2013
This was a very nicely furnished, comfortable cottage in a beautiful, quiet location, with very friendly, welcoming hosts. In September, though, there is little sunshine in the garden due to the beautiful, surrounding high beech trees. Nevertheless, it is a wonderful place to stay.
Miss Oakley August 2013
1/ Outside Area not well maintained The outside of the cottage was all overgrown and blocked a lot of light coming into the cottage. Both the garden furniture and patio were very dirty and in desperate need of a clean. The little pots/ baskets were not very well maintained or looked after. We found dog poo on the garden from previous guests which was not very pleasant for our children. 2/ Damp The cottage was very damp and despite having the windows open for the whole of our 2 week stay did still smell. 3/ Cleaning / Change of Bedding The owner did kindly provide a change of bedding after our first week, however, it would have been much nicer and more restful to have had the cottage cleaned, bedding change and towels replaced after the first week. This is something that is done very well abroad as part of a rental but not so common in the UK.

This was a very comfortable cottage with lovely surroundings and the owners were lovely people.
Mrs Hunkin June 2013
Little Yeo looks so pretty in the photos but it does not convey how beautiful and tranquil it is there. I would recommend it to anyone. The owners are lovely and nothing was too much trouble. If you want to visit Bideford, Appledore, The Big Sheep, Westward Ho!, The Milky Way, Barnstaple etc. they are all within a short distance. Anyone with children will love it. We took our nephew who is 2 and he loved the garden to play in and especially the cows in the field opposite! All in All a fab place to stay.
Miss De Villiers March 2013
Little Yeo was a lovely little cottage to stay in. It was extremely comfortable and the owners went out of their way to make us feel at home by baking a lovely cake and leaving some wine. Beautiful surrounding areas with lots of areas to explore and hike in. Would most definitely recommend this as a place to stay to others.
