Beautiful cottage with wonderful sea views, very conveniently situated for walks on the south west coast path. Lots to do in the local area. We had a lovely cosy stay in November and very much hope to return again in better weather when we can experience more of the attractions, the garden and walking.

Stayed a week at this wonderful cottage and we couldn’t have been happier.

The views are stunning and it has a great location, whether you want to take the coastal paths (right outside your doorstep!) or drive to other lovely Devon destinations, you won’t be disappointed

Will be booking again

We were very happy with our week's stay. So much thought went into welcoming us, from a bowl of goodies to placing a child's stair gate, safety locks on all windows, and a child's bath for our little one. The kitchen is really well equipped, fab cooker and even supplying a Nespresso coffee machine. The views are unbelievable and taken in from sitting in the hot tub in the evening watching the sunset was the best part of our stay. Beds really comfortable and great shower (two most important facilities!)

Renting this superb cottage was so easy and straight forward. The cottage was exactly as presented on website, cosy, stylish, comfortable with every comfort thought of. The views from the garden and hot tub were spectacular and I dont think could be beaten. We could watch our son from the garden fishing for mackeral from a kayak he'd rented from Hele Bay. We had them bbq for tea...perfect!!! A very special place ??

Excellent cottage for an excellent holiday.

Within two days of arriving at Coastguard Cottages we had booked for next i need to say anymore?!!! This property is amazing, the cosy atmosphere and stunning views were outstanding. The location is out of this world and for us the weather was superb (late May) which was a real bonus as we were able to spend so much time outside enjoying the Hot Tub, the fabulous day bed, the outdoor cooking facilities and star gazing late at night by the fire pit! Trust me it's as good as it sounds! Access to The South West Coast Path is a bonus...although walks are challenging in that area, you are constantly rewarded with the most amazing views. Classic Cottages were a delight to deal with as ever, thank you!

All information given!

Number 4 Coastguard Cottage was wonderful. The location was perfect for our objective which was to walk the coast path between Lynton and Woolacombe and being directly on the path was a real treat. After a hard day's walk, it was a welcome relief to rest in such a warm and comfortable home. The beds and linens were perfect and the kitchen was certainly well equipped. It had everything one wants - a home away from home. The welcoming treats were especially appreciated! Thank you.

This is one of the nicest properties we've stayed in. The property has the most amazing views and is such a fantastic location.

Sitting in the hot tub while looking out to sea, is such a special experience.

We hope to return to this amazing place to create more family memories.

Very comfortable cottage with spectacular views. Lovely facilities available in the garden and easy access to the coastal path. Ideal location for exploring.

After booking with classic for years, this was the best property we have stayed in. The location was amazing. I got up early each day to look at the views and sit in the front room with the fire on, watch tv ( which had everything you would want to watch), have a coffee look out the window at the coast and do abit of work on my laptop before the family got up. I really didn’t want to leave and am extremely jealous of the owners. Would definitely book again, which after booking Paul near Mousehill year after year is high praise.

Number 4 Coastguard cottage is a unique and unbelievable place to spend a vacation or time away. I hope we can return there one day.

The perfect place to watch the world. The views are incredible and the decor and furnishings are perfect.

We have just returned from a wonderful couple of weeks stay in this delightful home from home and would highly recommend it. It really is a great base to explore this lovely area of Devon and, being one of 4 iconic cottages standing out from many places along the coast, it’s a perfect place to start your adventures and return to each day. The views are incredible and plenty of outside spaces and furniture to enjoy them from. The cottage itself is perfect and has so many nice touches, both traditional and more modern, absolutely everything has been thought of and we could not fault a single thing!! We even had an accident during our stay and the hosts dealt with it very promptly without any fuss or stress, for that we’re very grateful. One thing we did wonder about was road noise being situated on a main road - no need, it’s hardly noticeable and never invasive whether inside or outside. It’s actually quite pleasant to hear a very brief gentle swoosh every now and again when vehicles go by. Thank you to the hosts and Classic Cottages for ensuring we had an amazing holiday !!
