                                                      Very well equipped cottage in amazing location. 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 takes the stress out of taking our little furry buddies with us - secure garden and bowls, treats, 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 ( although not in May due to the Tics)

                                                      A fantastic base for exploring Exmoor and North Devon, The cottage is clean, well maintained, very comfortable and has everything you require, TV, books, DVD’s and WIFI. Well equipped kitchen if you fancy a bit of home cooking, however we would highly recommend a visit to nearby Kentisbury Manor for a memorable dining experience. There was a very helpful information pack listing recommended pubs, restaurants, and places to visit. Ginny met us on arrival, she was very friendly and welcoming. She was on hand during our stay to offer advice about the area, which was much appreciated. We highly recommend this property and look forward to returning in the near future. Kevin & Stephen

                                                      Large apartment, very spacious, can sleep 5. Beautifully decorated with everything you need for a relaxing break. Gorgeous views from the apartment, especially the window seat in the kitchen which is a nice touch. Very comfy beds. A lovely woodland like garden with a stream at the bottom. 10 min walk to the town , 15 min drive to woolacombe beach and easy access to coastal walks. Would love to return one day. Stacey Harper
