This property is delightful. A lot of thought has gone into the set up and equipping of it. Sadly we had a lot of rain but the facilities for good weather are fantastic.

Fantastic property for 2 families with a dog to share. The paddock for outdoor activities for kids and the dog was a real bonus. This cottage is very well equipped and the games room & garden games (swing ball) were a real bonus! Very comfortable. And plenty of different areas for all ages to enjoy.

Beautiful cottage with natural, closed in gardens. Very dog friendly. Lots of little extras that went the extra mile to make our get away stress free. Peaceful area perfect to get away from the hustle and bustles of the city. Loved the free roaming pheasant and rabbits. The cows and sheep in the back field was a lovely sound when drinking a cup of tea in the morning. Kids loved the games room and toys in the summer house. Would highly recommend.
Mrs Riach December 2022
A beautiful countryside cottage equipped with everything we needed. The lovely woodland style enclosed and secure garden was perfect for our dogs, as was the adjoining paddock area. Now on our list of favourite cottages and highly recommended!

The cottage was lovely and warm, very welcoming, but for dog owners the best thing it was securely fenced in, taking any worries away from letting your dog loose in the garden, ours settled down straight away. Would recommend this cottage.
Ms Brinton June 2022
Lovely peaceful location in beautiful countryside but in easy reach of the coast.
Ms Street May 2022
The location of the cottage is lovely, so peaceful and quiet but close enough to north Devon attractions. It is well equipped inside and outside with lots of garden games. The cottage is well set up for those travelling with dogs- our dog loved the garden. The paintwork inside could do with some attention and the garden pruning back. However, The Cottage is a great base for exploring the area.
Mrs Thomlinson March 2022
The most important thing for us was that the cottage was very dog friendly along with the garden being fully enclosed. The Cottage is very comfortable and we really enjoyed the log fire in the evenings. The kitchen was very well equipped and it was lovely using the Rayburn, The kitchen and bathrooms were immaculate, We would recommend this cottage to any one who would enjoy a peaceful, calm and cosy location
Mrs Appleyard December 2021
A charming cottage and a wonderful warm welcome. The Christmas hamper was extremely generous and deeply appreciated.
Ms Rowntree October 2021
The Cottage is very relaxing and utterly peaceful.
Ms Mallett September 2021
Certainly one of the best cottages we have stayed in. And we have certainly stayed in a few. Comfortable, well equipped and dog friendly. We shall hopefully be back next year.
Mr Bond August 2021
Amazing location and a stunning country cottage in the middle of the countryside, perfect base to head to the coast or just enjoy the peaceful dog walks around. Will certainly use country cottages again and will be back here at some stage.
Mrs Podmore July 2021

mrs randall June 2021
A most enjoyable stay. Very Dog friendly. One of our dogs wouldn't get into the car to come home. Kept going back to the paddock gate. Would definitely stay there again
Mr Cook June 2021
Attractive cottage externally in lovely location with views across open countryside. Adequate only internally with both decor and furnishings in need of upgrading, despite obvious modernisation for rental market. Cavernous lounge with flagstone floor a little cold and depressing owing to well used furniture and unsympathetic lighting. Upstairs comfortable with generally well lit bedrooms and suitable storage for clothes. Plumbing and shower facilities, whilst functional, are not as reliable as would be expected. Reasonable sized enclosed garden although rather overgrown and needing more regular maintenance to really enhance it. With potential overall but would definitely benefit from refreshing. Good position, however, from which to explore the dramatic North Devon coastline.

We're so sorry to see that the property wasn't quite what you were looking for. We do feel that The Cottage has been sympathetically furnished in keeping with it's age and style, and we regret that this wasn't to your taste. We do appreciate that not every guest will feel at home with every variation of decor and styling, but do encourage customers to check out the description and numerous photos provided for to help them make their choice before booking. It was great to hear that you found the exterior attractive, the bedrooms comfortable and the garden spacious. We look forward to welcoming you to an alternative property in the future.

Had an amzing holiday at The Cottage. Beautiful property. So peaceful amd the garden was perfect for our 4 dogs. The flowers, cakes and dog treats on arrival were a lovely touch. The property was very clean and comfortable. Would definitely return.

Mrs Ford October 2020
Wonderful cottage, secure garden and great location!
Mrs Godfrey September 2020
From the minute you walk in, this cottage oozes charm and is very welcoming. There is everything you need (and more) for a perfect holiday. The wood burner is awesome!
Travelling with two dogs, one which is a ‘golden oldie’ means the list of boxes we need to tick is quite long and this cottage fulfilled all our requirements. The tiled floors, doggie extras and the totally enclosed garden made it the best dog friendly cottage we’ve ever stayed in. The use of a paddock is also a welcome bonus because the lanes are quite narrow for walking an old dog who can’t move quickly to side step any passing traffic . . . not that we saw much, other than the local farmer going about his daily routine.
The location is idyllic -so peaceful and the cottage is not overlooked (except by some inquisitive cows in the field next door.). The garden is private and lovely to sit in and soak up the tranquility that surrounds you.
This is the place to stay if you want total rest and relaxation but is relatively close to beaches, places of interest and amenities, making it an ideal property for everyone.
Mr Wakley August 2020
We had a lovely comfortable stay at the Cottage. It would have been perfect if we had some of the weather a few weeks earlier. However thats England. Very well appointed, comfortable cottage. If we come back to the area we would re-book if its available. Thanks The Wakley's Aug 2020.
Mr Newman July 2020

Mrs Paxman March 2019
An ideal get away from it all location, the cottage was warm and welcoming and provided everything we needed. Our two Border Terriers loved the totally enclosed garden. Perfect
