Can’t recommend this cottage enough, perfect for us.

What a find! Really quiet village location, only short distance from coastal footpath, and just a stone's throw away from great local pub. The hosts, Sarah and Jon, were lovely, and all the locals we met were so friendly. The kitchen was well equipped and we felt very much at home. The garden offers sunny and shady areas to sit, the latter being very welcome as it was so hot the week we were there. Lots of beautiful coves nearby for safe bathing and easy access to the bigger towns of Ilfracombe and Combe Martin. Also, plenty of local walks. We will definitely be back next year, if it isn't fully booked!...
