We were very impressed with the cottage-immaculate condition, plenty of space for two families including two 3.5 year olds. Lovely to have the dining table in the kitchen and living room. We used the kitchen table for activities such as painting and playdough (when quiet time from the very busy days was needed!) and then the big dining table in the living room for family dinners. All three rooms are spacious with wardrobes- the built in one becoming a little den for the kids. The on site facilities are great and why we come back again and again. The kids love feeding the animals with Mark in the morning, the little park with its beautiful views across Devon is great for a run around, our little girl loves the playroom and keeps busy tending to the dollys and playing shops. The pool is our favourite bit: it's the best pool we've been to in such a place. Really clean, and warm, excellent changing facilities, a drying room, and floats to play with- perfect! Lots to do nearby including Westward Ho! Beach is great as you can get the best of both worlds- amusents, crazy golf, Karting etc for kids one end but then a little drive further up and you are completely secluded and untouched by and shops and amusements for some peaceful beach time. Mark and Yvonna are fantastic hosts and nothing is too much trouble. Another super stay and we will be back soon!
