The views were amazing and we enjoyed some lovely walks around the Quay and by the Church. We will most definitely be going back again

Alex and Anne are the perfect hosts. The large grounds offered our 2 children the opportunity to explore and run off their excessive energy, whilst we enjoyed a relaxing drink in the pleasant surroundings. Only a couple of minutes walk to the village shop for any essentials. Ten minutes walk to the Malt Scoop for a splendid mix of excellent food, local beers and friendly conversation. Lapford is located equal distance from the north and south Devon coasts which is ideal for chasing the sun and getting out and about. This was our second visit to the cottage. We all absolutely love the time we have spent here and will definitely be looking for an opportunity to visit again.
