A very comfortable away from it all property...the deck was amazing for late night star gazing and the log burner made the cottage very cosy on chillier nights. The owner was very helpful, thank you.

Forest View is remote and idyllic for these current times. Perfect for those with dogs, although for older dogs the stairs may be tricky. Walking amongst the trees was quite magical and soothing for the soul. Able to distance from the world but plenty to do quite locally if you wished to-we walked parts of the Tarka Trail, visited Instow beach and Westward Ho! The weather was kind to us so a delightful break amidst the current mayhem. Sam, the owner, who planted the forest is a very nice chap and around most days for a chat or any issues. Would recommend.

An excellent holiday location and property

This is our second holiday at Forest View and it was very relaxing and comfortable. We were able to unwind and enjoy the solitude of the ‘tree top house’. The host was very welcoming as always and we loved coming back to a little bit of luxury after a day on the beach at Northern Burrows. The space was very safe and loved by everyone including the dogs.

Forest View is a beautiful, quiet, relaxing retreat with everything you could need. Beautiful surroundings and an excellently appointed house. The kitchen was perfect for cooking Christmas dinner, we had everything we needed, and the owners even put a beautiful huge Christmas tree up for us! The beds are luxurious and soooo comfortable, and the bath in the ensuite is big enough for 2 small children to swim in!! A wonderful place, credit to the owners who were friendly and helpful. We will be back!

We stayed with our young baby and both lots of grandparents. All found the house very comfy and a good home from home for our holiday. Great decking area once the rain and wind stopped! At night you can hear lots of owls all around which I loved! As based on a farm, there were a fair few flies getting in to the house, so worth taking a fly swat with you, not an unbearable amount though. Owner was very helpful with our queries. We would definitely recommend this place to our friends and family.

Spacious good looking property in a quiet location. Challenging drive to and from property set 'off the beaten track '! Ideal to get away from it all.
Mr Rowbotham June 2019
Had a lovely stay at Forest View. Loved the location, the peace and quite. Good sized property and one of the nicest double rooms we've had. It has the biggest bath ever, if we had brought an elephant it would have easily fitted in and been able to turn around . Very well equipped and furnished. A real get away from it all property. Excellent. We'll be back. Not yet had a bad property with Classic. Thank you.

This was amazing! Best holiday rental we’ve had. One suggestion, stairs could be carpeted as they were a bit slippery. Other than this everything was amazing, the quality of everything provided could not have been better. We shall definitely be returning. X

Thanks for reviewing Forest View - it certainly sounds like you had an amazing holiday overall! We'll certainly forward your suggestion for carpeting the stairs to the owner for their consideration for the future - thank you. Bryony, Customer Support

Forest View is in a stunning location, if you're looking for a peaceful get away this is the place for you. The cottage has lots of room, is well equipped and has a cosy wood burner. The balcony off the sitting room is huge and totally enclosed so your pets are safe to have a wonder around and watch the wildlife. I can imagine in the summer it will be a relaxing sun trap. Take your wellies and have a lovely walk through the forest, there is so much to see. We will definitely return to this property. Thank you for a wonderful week.

Fantastic cottage in a stunning location. Would definitely recommend!!! We have used classic cottages a couple of times now and both times we have been incredibly happy with the service provided and the fabulous accommodation - will definitely be recommending to friends and family :) Log burner, location, decking, stunning views, well-equipped, friendly owner, games room, plenty of toilets, utility room, layout of the cottage - felt really spacious and had good stand alone lamps, which are often lacking. All round lovely place to be.
Mrs Bennett September 2018
The cottage exceeded our expectations!! It was tucked away in an idyllic spot, tastefully decorated and so quiet. We went out and about during the day and returned late afternoon to relax on the decking (we had great weather for late September) before enjoying a bath à deux (its a HUGE tub) and then settling in front of the fire. Highly recommended.
