Not twee - no thatch, for example - but very well maintained, so that it's possible to keep the cottage spotlessly clean (which is how we found it). Well equipped, with all the important mod cons: w/m, t/d, d/w, reasonably sized fridge freezer. That's not to say the cottage lacks interesting quirks - you should bring three or four drawing pins. An excellent centre for walkers, especially those who enjoy the Coast Path. For restful interludes Hartland Abbey, Docton Mill and Hartland Quay are all worth a visit. The entrance hall, kitchen and utility room have tiled floors and so are dog-friendly in that respect. The garden is also dog-friendly although an adventurous middle-sized or large dog could escape and so would need supervision.

A beautiful cosy cottage which served as a great base for our walking holiday. Thank you

The Bear is ideally situated with access to lovely walks and dramatic coastal scenery. There are so many things to do without having to travel too far out of the area. Certainly a favourite place to come back to and explore even more.

Warm, comfortable and quirky. Ideal cottage for families.
Mr Wilcox May 2019
The wonderful local scenery and walks to Hartland Quay were a real bonus. This part of Devon should be visited and the Bear provides excellent access to picturesque coastal walks nearby.
