It was perfect for us, enough bathrooms and toilets and a wonderful conservatory we used most of the time. The garden was secure for the dog and although not far from all amenities it was so quiet. We had a couple of meals , including a wonderful Sunday lunch, at the Hele Bay pub and the beach was very close and never crowded. Ilfracombe was not too far and the harbour terrific. This was so much more relaxed than booking a hotel and because it allowed us to be flexible we all came back relaxed. We would definitely book here again.

Views over Holdstone Down or out across the water to Wales. Superb isolated location - could hear the birds singing and no traffic or sirens! Also very dog friendly which take the stress out of taking our little furry buddies with us - secure garden and bowls, chair covers etc provided. Gordon and Sarah are great hosts - there if you want them but not intrusive. Would definitely recommend and will be returning. We had an issue with Tics on the dogs but have since found out that their monthly treatment does not deter Tics as the old treatment used too - so go prepared!
