On arrival the cottage was clean and tidy. The garden was well maintained. The kitchen was well equipped and the lounge and bedroom spacious and comfortable. Although the accommodation was for four people, it was refreshing to discover that because we were only two there was a reduction in the cost.

Thanks so much for reviewing Cleveland Cottage - it's wonderful to hear you had such a great time overall. As a very traditional country cottage it's retained some really lovely original features as you found which just add to the charm and cosiness. We hope to see you again very soon.

I found the cottage very warm, cosy and comfortable with a lovely fire-place. All the furnishings are practical and in excellent condition.

September 2019

Could not fault the cottage. It was very clean, comfortable and very well equipped.

May 2019

Very comfortable and well equipped cottage. Would happily return and recommend. Access via steps so not ideal for people with limited mobility.

Thanks for reviewing Cleveland Cottage and we're so pleased you had a lovely holiday overall. The cottage is accessed by a flight of stone steps from the parking-area to the garden as mentioned in the description, but there is also a smaller flight of steps up to the front door, a few yards further up the lane.

Our stay at Cleveland Cottage over new year was absolutely lovely. The cottage was exceptionally clean and felt luxurious and cosy. We enjoyed some fabulous daytrips to nearby National Trust places and the seaside and we also loved Wimbleball Lake. Would definitely recommend. And thanks for a lovely welcome!

October 2018

Wonderful week in the most comfy and clean cottage with home from home facilities

June 2018

Lovely home from home cottage, very clean and we loved sitting in the pretty garden. If you want peace & quiet on your holiday this is the place to go. Dulverton which is a 4.5 miles drive is a lovely village to visit and has a couple of nice pubs for lunch and also some quaint little shops. Clare - Bristol.

An immaculately presented, characterful home in a perfect location with a stunning garden area. Very well equipped, warm, private & tranquil. Not sure about previous comments regarding difficulty navigating narrow lanes & lack of proximity to food supplies- this is rural Britain so what can you expect?! It’s not in the wilderness! We really appreciated the extremely comfortable large bed as well as being unsuitable for dogs. We have stayed in so many cottages that are dog- friendly and, quite frankly, there are some of us out there who don’t want doggy smells! Cleveland Cottage was perfect for us in many ways and we would certainly consider booking again with other family members. Thank you for a superb short winter break & for four days of cold but wall to wall blue skies- perfect walking weather!

A very romantic and secluded setting.

October 2017

Lovely cottage, lovely location excellent value for money. We had a most enjoyable holiday with so many places to explore.

September 2017

A quaint cottage with a nice mixture of traditional features and some modern comforts. Would definitely return.

June 2017

We loved our week at Cleveland Cottage. It was very peaceful, the countryside around was beautiful. We would go back.

It is in a small village. The approach is down the usual narrow country lanes you would expect in this part of the country, but there were enough passing places. The cottage has a lot of character, the doorways are quite low (which you might want to know if you are a tall person). I was relieved that there were no noisy or aggressive dogs nearby. There were lovely views from the cottage.

June 2017

This was a fantastic cottage for our family when my partner was completing the iron man in Exmoor. It's lovely and cosy, in a beautiful location and feels really homely.

June 2017

Would recommend this cottage, beautiful setting and plenty to do if you like walking and relaxing. Lots of NT places nearby and not far from the coast. Great holiday helped out by the weather

April 2017

Cleveland Cottage was amazing, so clean and well looked after. We found the owners had been very thoughtful in the way they had equipped the cottage and we had everything we needed. A beautiful countryside location with lots of opportunities for walking and enjoying the outdoors. Will consider visiting again.

November 2016

Would definitely recommend if you want a quite place to stay, with lots of walks around the area.

May 2016

This is a spacious, carefully thought about cottage with bright rooms, quality decor and furnishings and extremely comfortable. Full of character whilst offering all mod cons. The garden and outlook are very special and although there are many roads in and out of Skilgate, you get the hang of it in the end and the hedgerows in May/June are wonderful.

March 2016

Had a wonderful very relaxing holiday in this beautiful cottage, had everything you would ever need in the way of equipment. And although the roads around the area are very narrow and winding there are some wonderful views and within short distance of some lovely places to visit. Our favourite place being Watersmeet at Lynmouth.

October 2015

The garden was superb on warm sunny days. Totally private with a beautiful outlook. And silence except for the birds! Even our own visiting bunny rabbit.) We would highly recomment this cottage. It is so oldie world, yet all the 'mod cons' to make it so comforable and relaxing. The area is one our most favourite for walks and scenery.

April 2015

This is a very comfortable and cosy cottage. It is very well equipped and the decoration is pleasant. It is a lovely quiet, get away from it all and relax cottage!

April 2015

From booking to checking in everything was perfect. Would definitely recommend Classic Cottages to others and would use the service again.

December 2014

A lovely clean comfortable cottage. The beds are super comfy and the fire is a real treat. We had a very peaceful, restful Christmas break especially as Tesco delivered our Christmas shopping! Just be prepared, roads and stairs are steep and winding. Lots of basics already at the cottage such as toilet paper, washing up liquid, salt and pepper and we were left a lovely welcome pack including mince pies, chocolate coins and a cheerful poinsettia. We really did not want to leave. Many thanks, the very happy Haywards.

October 2014

A very comfortable, very cosy, very very quiet cottage in a peaceful secluded setting.

September 2014

Booked late on the spur of the moment we found a lovely cottage very well equipped and perfectly placed for everwhere we wanted to go. What a great holiday!!

September 2014

An extremely clean and comfortable cottage in a beautiful peaceful location. Very good indeed.

March 2014

A truly beautiful cottage and perfect location to completely unwind. Excellent holiday.

September 2013

Cleveland cottage is lovely. It is spacious, very well equipped and furnished. It was warm with plenty of hot water and lovely bathrooms. The beds were comfortable with superior bedding. The kitchen provided everything required with nice utensils and crockery. There was a welcome basket with tea, coffee, sugar and biscuits. Note: take milk for first day as nearest shop isn't close! The cottage was immaculate with lots of nice touches i.e. hand soap, thick towels. The furniture is nice with large flat screen TV with Freeview, cd and DVD players. The best cottage we've stayed in. The cottage is very remote and accessed by very narrow, windy roads. Dulverton, a lovely village with all amenities, is 6 miles away.

June 2013

It was really good. There was fresh flowers on the table, roses! We enjoyed it very much!

March 2013

We had a lovely time, the cottage was brilliant, lovely and clean and so cosy. Thank you very much.
