                              Short and sweet the cottage is in a stunning location overlooking the north coast of Devon towards Wales.For dog owners it is completely secure all around the beautiful gardens bordering the wilds of Exmoor.Its a five minute drive into Combe Martin or 20 minutes into either Woolacombe,Lynton and Lynmouth and so many more places at hand. A very spacious well equipped cottage/bungalow perfect for an out of town tranquil chill out. The friendly cottage owners are close at hand should you require them for anything. Highly recommended for everyone especially dog owners

                              a great family holiday

                              We've been to Lee before and love the village but this was our first visit to The Old Vicarage. We found the house charming and very comfortable. There is lots of room for a large party. We enjoyed badminton on the lawn, watching DVDs from the extensive library and playing games on the kitchen table. We also spent a few sociable hours at the Grampus. I would recommend this house to anyone in need of rest and recuperation in a peaceful location.
