A dip in the bubbling hot tub is a must, what better way to relax.

Lovely cottage. Owner really helpful. Would stay again.

Stunning, cosy cottage in a wonderful, quiet location. Perfect for our minimoon!

A wonderful, cozy home away from home, Straw Cottage has all the comforts you'll need and the outdoor space is fantastic (hot tub, fire pit, bbq, garden -- what more could you want). Everything is exactly as pictured. Also North Devon has so many sights to see and activities to do, one week wasn't enough to take it all in! Plus, the village around the corner has the incredible Farmer's Arms (do yourself a favour a book a meal here!). All in all, the perfect getaway. Will definitely be returning!...

The location is fab as it's only 20mins from the coast. There is a beautiful restaurant in the village only 10 minutes walk (expensive fine dining so only went once) and the local shop next door to that is well equipped. I did a half day blacksmith introduction run by the owners which was great fun. The hot tub was great as was the log burner. The cottage was cosy and private just what we wanted. We really enjoyed our stay....
