Really lovely and comfortable cottage,in a beautiful and quite village.

5 of 5
Had a lovely stay and weather was good to us. This is a really lovely cottage in a fantastic location, but close enough to all beaches in Saunton sands and Woolacombe and other north Devon places worth a visit.

Fabulous modernised cottage in secluded location

4 of 5
We loved this clean very comfortable modernised cottage and it's secluded wooded location in a nature reserve. We had very easy access to the undulating coastal paths with stunning sea views as well as walks in the reserve itself. There was also a brilliant thatched roof pub within 30 to 40 minutes walking distance through the reserve which served very good pub meals and lovely cider! Would definitely go back.
