I would describe it as "small but perfectly formed". We had a wonderful break. A bottle of champagne greeted us - maybe because it was New Years Eve whilst we were there. The cottage had all the essentials for a relaxing break and is in the perfect location for exploring the wonderful beaches nearby. We took two dogs and the owners were happy to accommodate them. We had dinner in the village pub twice and found it really welcoming. The food was tasty and good value. We would definitely come back again.

Lovely standard of living conditions and thoughtfulness of the proprietors with it being fully set up toddler friendly for us, the cot and stair gates every where they were needed - along with a complimentary bottle of bubbles on arrival. :-) Pool was warm and in a clean condition as was the whole site. Great mixed age games room including little tykes items and small toys for young children as well as a pool table and table tennis. Outside play area with swings and climbing frame etc and a nice space for ball games. Would definitely go back, enquired about next year but was full booked already.

                                                                                                      This is clearly a popular house because when I searched in October 2016, the only available dates were Xmas Eve through New Years Eve 2016. We were 5 adults, 4 children and 4 dogs and we were a bit wary of creating a pop-up Christmas but the house was absolutely brilliant!! I had previously had a poor experience renting an apartment in Malta just days before but the moment I walked into Toad Hall I felt elated. The kitchen has a long table with benches that comfortably seat 8-10 people and was laid out as if it were Xmas day already with festive crackers, plates and serviettes. The manager left a hand written note with some home made muffins. It was very, very welcoming. We spent quite a lot of time in the kitchen playing board games and putting jigsaw puzzles together, cooking, chatting... With the exception of a DVD player/radio, all the appliances worked perfectly and it all looked exactly as depicted in the photos. The lounge was lovely too with a Xmas tree already set up with ample, comfortable seating. Upstairs worked out great because for a family of 4 we pretty much had our own quarters with a separate bathroom and 2 bedrooms. The larger of the 2 bedrooms upstairs was quite spacious. The other bedroom was perfect for our kids, aged 6 and 8. The larger downstairs bedroom is spacious but initially my family members were cold at night. We used the space heater temporarily (usually located in the small conservatory area) to heat the room before bedtime and that seemed to work out fine. The property is located within easy walking distance from Ye Old Globe (Berrynarbor pub) and there is also a fun playground in the village for the kids including a good sized football pitch. You can easily get to the coastal path and walk to both Ilfracombe or Combe Martin. It was a very memorable stay! I loved it!
