We could not have found more delightful accommodation. A river view; a garden with garden-furniture and bbq alongside the river Caen; on one of Braunton’s oldest unspoilt streets; central yet wonderfully quiet; off-street private parking. Sarah, the owner, lives nearby (and so can be contacted easily if need-be) made us very welcome on arrival before leaving us. We did see her a few times during our stay…our choice…because she is such a friendly person. The cottage is very clean and well-furnished and fitted-out…even down to needles, cottons, first-aid kit, a variety of teas and coffee and fruit. Plus a welcoming bottle of (very good) wine. No problems sleeping ….excellent beds….and a bathroom each! Sounds effusive? Well, we loved it…..couldn’t find a single fault or grumble…except that we had to leave at the end of our time.

We appreciated the audio system. The hot tub was wonderful. We didn't realise we had to pay the supplement for this as it isn't made clear on this site. Choice Holidays were helpful in sorting it but it did take a bit of time. Would definitely recommend this property and Braunton.

                                                                                                    5 of 5

We were split between four cars and there was enough space on the driveway for us all. Upon arrival there were fresh scones, jam and cream waiting for us. Everything was sparkling clean and all facilities working perfectly. The kitchen and living areas are very spacious and light with double doors leading onto the wooden balcony (our only very small discontent was being unable to open one of the doors - i don't think we could work out the knack to it!). There's just enough space to put up a gazebo in the garden if need be. The bedrooms are a decent size and the 4 poster bed was very comfortable and envied by others staying. The property is very central with a one minute walk to the local shops and pubs and just ten minutes away from the beach. Would recommend stocking up on food in nearby Braunton as the local shops don't offer a huge amount of choice. Both Joby (the owner) and Matilda (the housekeeper) were very friendly and communicative and kindly extended our check-out until 12 o'clock at no extra cost. I would highly recommend staying to any families or groups looking for a break in Croyde and all of us would certainly stay again.
