We received the warmest of welcomes at Gt Eckworthy from Anna and Chris. The personal touch really does go a long way! I would describe The Cottage as having the WOW factor. Immaculately presented, a stunning location, so quiet and peaceful. It’s an absolute pleasure to return to every day after our trips exploring. The quality of the furnishings and comfort offered to guests is exceptionally high. Compliments to the housekeeping for their endeavours, simply outstanding. We relaxed inside in comfort, enjoyed outside meals on the deck in glorious Autumn sunshine surrounded by Anna’s beautiful tubs and baskets and the sparkling and spotlessly clean hot tub was the icing on the cake! So many lovely places to visit close by, especially RHS Rosemoor. Appledore and Instow. Sandymouth Bay was delightful. We loved every second of our stay. Don’t hesitate just book, you too will be WOWED!! Thank you Anna and Chris for sharing Great Eckworthy with us and for the delicious treats , so kind of you! Perfection achieved. Kind Regards Kate and Steve.

This cottage is the best rental we have stayed in. We have been doing this for over 50 years in the West Country. Anna and Chris have put together an amazing package of thoughtful and delightfully crafted places to stay. You will not be disappointed, just go ahead and booK.

This cottage had everything you could possibly want and Anna and Chris were perfect hosts.

This is a gem of a holiday retreat. If you want friendly, ever so helpful and congenial hosts, this is the place. If you want tranquility and relaxation, you’ve got it all here. Better than 5 star!

The property was even better than we hoped and Chris & Anna were fantastic hosts.

Just like to thank Chris and Anna for being so welcoming, friendly and very helpful with everything, thank you.

Lovely cottage with very high standards of finish set in a very peaceful location, everything that's needed for a restful holiday break.

A lovely stay at a peaceful location. The cottage is beautifully fitted and furnished and the terrace and hot tub are great. We also enjoyed the field whilst we were staying, our dog loved it!

We appreciated the remote and peaceful location with exceptional plant and birdlife to view. Everything exceeded our expectations and we received an extremely warm welcome from Anna and Chris.

Wonderful cottage in beautiful countryside, so peaceful and quiet - just perfect for relaxing and de- stressing! The cottage is equipped with everything you need and more ; the owners are lovely and can’t do enough for you - such beautiful people ! ??

You couldn’t wish for a better welcome than we had from Anna & Chris at Great Eckworthy. Nothing was too much trouble and the cottage was beautifully furnished with super comfortable bed and linens. It was one of the best equipped houses we have visited. The setting was so peaceful, all you could hear were the birds singing and it was such a pleasure to sit on the terrace surrounded by Anna’s gorgeous plants. Another highlight was coming home after a days golf and soaking in our own private hot tub with a glass of bubbly - bliss.

Thank you Anna & Chris, we will recommend Great Eckworthy to all our family and friends. Ethna & Ken

Everything in this cottage is 5*. Everything was provided plus extra . Complementary foodie items and toiletries (top quality).

An escape from busy exhausting and over-stimulating lives. The quietness in the morning brought so much calm and peace. Close to so many beautiful sites and well research recommendations from Anna and Chris. A lot of care and attention have been put into making this a real retreat. Our hosts were lovely and kind and we really could not believe our luck in finding this little gem. BOOK! You really will not regret it!

We had the most amazing long weekend break, would highly recommend this place to friends and family.
Anna and Chris were so friendly and welcoming. We arrived late and we got into the cottage and the fire was already on and a bottle of Prosecco in the fridge.

Was such a beautiful place!

Dog friendly beautiful fields to walk in for the dog. This cottage has all the appliances you could possibly need. Lots to visit close by. The bedrooms have top class mattresses and linen. Wood burners dishwashers all equipment provided. Great value for money. Highly recommended.
