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.

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.
