                                                      We enyoyed our stay very much. Ford Hill is such a lovely Cottage. It was the perfect location for our holiday. The boys liked playing kicker and billard in a big room next to the Cottage. Wie enyoyed sitting in the garden, reading and tasting all the regional specialities which Janet gave us for welcome. We also liked visiting the coast, especially Whoolacombe which has a wonderful beach and Lynton where we had a magnific walk round the coast and after that a very good cream tea at the villa spaldi. We are looking forward to coming back.

                                                      In my opinion Clarian is everything you need for a holiday stay. Clean, fresh, modern and well maintained. It provides all the amenities you would expect from a Self-Catering Holiday Let. The views from the apartment are stunning, looking across Ilfracombe itself with the backdrop of the sea. This is a great location, we went to Woolacombe Beach in one direction and Lynmouth & Lynton in the other. Superb holiday, wished we could have stayed longer.

                                                      Very well equipped cottage in amazing location. Views over Holdstone Down or out across the water to Wales. Superb isolated location - could hear the birds singing and no traffic or sirens! Also very dog friendly which takes the stress out of taking our little furry buddies with us - secure garden and bowls, treats, chair covers etc provided. Gordon and Sarah are great hosts - there if you want them but not intrusive. Would definitely recommend and will be returning ( although not in May due to the Tics)
