Absolutely beautiful

5 of 5
We booked to stay for 4 nights , and found the cottage very easily , the beauty of the cottage must be experienced , everything was so clean , all you could hear were birds singing , and on a couple of occasions a peacock was spotted walking in the garden, Ilfracombe and Bideford are both within easy reach by car , We would not hesitate to stay again , a credit to the owners.
