                                                            As the title suggests, we cannot recommend Thorpe highly enough. Beautifully appointed (down to the quality of equipment and kitchen utensils). A very carefully thought out , produced and maintained refurbishment in a spectacular location. The welcome pack is a nice touch and very welcome. We'll be back!

                                                            A cosy retreat away from the hustle and bustle.

                                                            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

                                                            Loved it, Book it, you will not be disappointed !

                                                            5 of 5
                                                            I booked this property because of it's size and location central to all North Devon attractions, and perfect for our family reunion, to show off my new grand daughter and spend some down time catching up. The property was amazing as it provided a comfortable well equipped and tucked away off road ,haven, so tranquil and beautiful are the gardens and inside , the layout gave us a great communal area , but then space to ourselves if we needed. The downstairs bedroom with en suite was perfect for my 27 year old daughter who has disabilities . as was the hot tub, wow what a place to relax under the mature trees, listening to the wild life The hot tub benefited us all in some way..My father got very friendly with the squirrels and put trails of nuts leading to the patio windows for the little ones to observe . Locally we had a great time also in the Black Horse Braunton, we had a game of bowls and amazing home grown and freshly prepared food. I would recommend this property for family' s and reunions, and for groups of golfers or walkers, This property is close to Saunton and Willingcott valley golf courses and great coastal paths.as well as walks on Exmoor. For history lovers , see the bronze age hut circles near Combe Martin,,art galleries in Ilfracombe ,or the old pannier markets in Barnstaple and South Molton For a romantic dinner on the beach watching the sunset ( a must experience ) ,Barricane beach woolacombe ....lots more to do, and I have booked another reunion for the family who live around the country , for July this year , and we look forward to returning to this property again , as it was the highlight of our stay in Devon....Thank you to Harry the host who is always on hand and very welcoming .
