Lovely cottage; comfortable, clean, and the kitchen was very well equipped. Only down side was it's remoteness and bumpy lane to the cottage. However, on our last day some of the pot holes were being filled in.

The property was generally very good, except for the gardens which were described as "gorgeous" and "lush" but in reality were heavily overgrown and weed infested when we stayed. [Sept 2023]

The bathroom ceiling sloped steeply where the shower is and at 5'8" my head touched the ceiling, so it was impossible to physically stand upright underneath the shower outlet.

The property is in a lovely position at the end of a cul-de-sac and is nice and quiet, but to get there the private approach lane to the property from the main road is about quarter of a mile long, unmaintained and has deep potholes. Be careful if you have a low car.

The kitchen is extremely well equipped. The cupboards were full of every imaginable gadget and appliance. However, this left no available space to store food.

A lovely cottage, in a peaceful location. It was decorated and fitted out really nicely, and felt very homely. Beautiful garden, nice big deck for eating outside, which we used every day. All in all, a great stay

Nice well equipped cottage. Very comfortable and clean. If you plan walks from the cottage this place is less ideal as it is at the end of a 'cul de sac' with no public footpaths. If you do not mind a drive every time, the place is great. The kitchen is fabulous; spacious and very well equipped. The deck at the back of cottage makes for a great breakfast, lunch or dinner in the sun. As it is partly roofed, even a few drops cannot kill the pleasure of sitting outside. If you bring a dog, please be aware that the garden is not escape proof.

A lovely cottage in a beautiful tranquil location. Just a short distance to North Devon’s picturesque coast line.

This was a wonderful cottage to stay with a dog ,plenty of garden all around the property and large kitchen that lead onto the decking area .Well stocked kitchen cupboards with a huge fridge . Just on the fringe of Combe Martin with a small collection of houses nearby .Easy to drive into for shops, everything you need .

A beautiful property that's full of home comforts, equipment and character. The whole process of checking in and out is seamless and the extra towels and bedding left by the host are a lovely touch. All in all I would recommend this to anybody and everybody - thank you so much for having us.

Lovely property with everything you could possible need. Very spacious for a two bedroom. We visited in winter but would love to go back in summer to make most of lovely deck

We're thrilled that Springwater Cottage worked so well for you. We hope we get the opportunity to welcome you back in summer so you can enjoy the wonderful outdoor space in the sunshine. Julie, Customer Support


A lovely cottage - warm & cosy for a very wet November week, but very spacious and a great secure garden for a dog to enjoy. Imagine that it would also be gorgeous for a summer stay as the decked balconies are lovely. Superb double bed - massive and very comfy! Heartily recommend.
