Just what we were looking for. A comfortable apartment in a peaceful location but easily accessible. Friendly and helpful owners. Plenty to do in the area or not as you please.

Lovely clean caravan, warm welcome received from Zoe. We had everything we needed and the dog loved it too. Best dog friendly places we visited were Westward Ho! beach and The Beaver pub in Appledore although the pubs in Hartland are dog friendly also. Thanks for having us :-)
