We knew that Devon would be a lovely place to visit, however the cottage really made the trip a memorable one. Everything about the cottage made us feel comfortable and relaxed and the locals were very friendly. Squires fish and chips in Braunton was so good that we went twice, and enjoyed our food on the cliffs overlooking the beach and sunset over the sea. With the night ending watching TV in front of the fire. Some great walks with outstanding views, never being too far away from the cottage. I would recommend the cottage to anyone looking to spend some time away with family and enjoy the time together. Everything was clean, well kept and accessible - we even had everything needed to make a cake! Thank you for making a lovely weekend, we will be visiting again!
