I would describe it as "small but perfectly formed". We had a wonderful break. A bottle of champagne greeted us - maybe because it was New Years Eve whilst we were there. The cottage had all the essentials for a relaxing break and is in the perfect location for exploring the wonderful beaches nearby. We took two dogs and the owners were happy to accommodate them. We had dinner in the village pub twice and found it really welcoming. The food was tasty and good value. We would definitely come back again.

It is situated in a quiet location in Braunton but within walking distance of shops, restaurants and walks. The comprehensive information pack giving us local information was much appreciated. The beautiful beaches and coastal walks are within a short drive and trips to Barnstaple, Ilfracombe and Coombe Martin are within easy reach

The children loved the hot tub, there was a bit of trouble with it at first, but Harry was at hand to put the problem right. The garden was ideal for the dogs, lots of room to run around. It was lovely to catch up on old haunts, Woolacombe, Croyed, Puttsborogh. Ilfracombe. We would definitely recommend to our friends.
