The cottage is just perfect for up to seven people. It was very clean and comfortable. Upstairs the three bedrooms are well furnished in attractive cottage style: good, comfortable beds were made up with attractive, quality bedlinen. The space is generous with ample storage. The two bathrooms provide good facilities and constant hot water. The large lounge/diner downstairs is a super room for family meals with a lovely big table and chairs. This year we didn't light the fire as the weather was kind but last year we did and were very cosy. The kitchen is well-equipped and spacious with smart crockery and glasswear, plenty of cooking pans etc. With seven people a dishwasher would be a plus but that's because we are spoiled at home! Our grandchildren particularly enjoyed the outdoor space, feeding the animals each morning and also, the swimming pool and games room. Being able to set up our Easter Egg hunt in the play area was a real bonus. The owners are very friendly and helpful at all times and we would thoroughly recommend Hill Farm Cottages to anyone. The layout of the cottages is beautiful and there is plenty to explore in the area.

                                                                                                      5 of 5

We were very impressed with the cottage-immaculate condition, plenty of space for two families including two 3.5 year olds. Lovely to have the dining table in the kitchen and living room. We used the kitchen table for activities such as painting and playdough (when quiet time from the very busy days was needed!) and then the big dining table in the living room for family dinners. All three rooms are spacious with wardrobes- the built in one becoming a little den for the kids. The on site facilities are great and why we come back again and again. The kids love feeding the animals with Mark in the morning, the little park with its beautiful views across Devon is great for a run around, our little girl loves the playroom and keeps busy tending to the dollys and playing shops. The pool is our favourite bit: it's the best pool we've been to in such a place. Really clean, and warm, excellent changing facilities, a drying room, and floats to play with- perfect! Lots to do nearby including Westward Ho! Beach is great as you can get the best of both worlds- amusents, crazy golf, Karting etc for kids one end but then a little drive further up and you are completely secluded and untouched by and shops and amusements for some peaceful beach time. Mark and Yvonna are fantastic hosts and nothing is too much trouble. Another super stay and we will be back soon!
