Beautiful house, stunning walks

5 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay at the Old Dairy. What a fantastic place for a relaxing family break, with wonderful walks on the doorstep, and really pretty, quirky village just a stone's throw away. Great pub too!

Charming and Comfortable

5 of 5
Leigh Cottage is the ideal place to stay whatever your expectations of Devon are. It is extremely well equipped with a lovely big kitchen . There is enough space for two families. There was only two of us for our week but we loved the rambling space and peacefulness. It is pretty close to Ilfracombe and Woolacombe and plenty of other little villages and beautiful beaches. We would definitely go there again.
