Good quality bed linen and towels. Well equipped kitchen, comfortable furniture throughout. A wonderful spot to enjoy the good weather and chill out. We were welcomed with delicious scones, jam, clotted cream and cooled white wine! The only minus was the traffic noise but after an exhilarating time on the lovely beach nearby at Croyde we slept well. Well looked after by host, Caroline.
