Excellent, well -appointed lodge with new carpets throughout and recently decorated. A new fridge was provided during our stay to replace the rather dilapidated old one we had last year. TV with Sky in lounge plus another tv in bedroom. Lots of indoor games and also outdoor equipment for beach etc. are provided for visitor’s use as well as some very interesting and helpful files of “ Many Things To Do “ in the local area. Local town Kilkhampton has a couple of pubs, chippy and a Co-op and The Stables bar and Pizza Ape at Penstowe both serve good food. Nearest beach is the lovely Sandymouth (check tides before going though) and many other good beaches are just a short drive away.
Situated with the best view across the valley towards the sea where you can see the most beautiful sunsets.
The location of this cottage is very remote though close to the village of Hartland which is a short drive away. Lemon drizzle cake and new laid eggs awaited our arrival in the cosy kitchen which had a lovely aga style range cooker. Very spacious with well fitted bathrooms it was easy to feel at home here. Penny was very helpful and always on hand if needed. A few constructive suggestions a large comfy sofa in the sitting room would be welcome especially if there are 4 or 5 people staying. Also the single beds in the downstairs bedroom would benefit from better quality mattresses although what is there is adequate. We also thought that it would be so easy to make an area of the garden round the conservatory enclosed so in hot weather you could let the dog go in and out to a small area of garden without intruding on the owners outside areas. This is not essential but would be helpful if we had been staying longer. There is a lovely supply of books, games etc and a nice cosy log burner. All round a well maintained spacious cottage a great place to stay which is surrounded by stunning scenery and lots of walks and teashops. We especially recommend Docton Mill their cream tea is wonderful! There is a lovely circular walk from Hartland Quay along the coastal path then inland through a beautiful valley to Docton Mill then a path wends its way back inland to Stoke and then to Hartland Quay.
