A fabulous pub just up the hill put the icing on the cake - we couldn't have asked for more! Will definitely be returning.

Cream tea was an unexpected surprise and very tasty. The accommodation was clean and well equipped for a long weekend away in the countryside, and an ideal location to explore North Devon. Lovely would definitely stay again

The food welcome pack was delightful! Downstairs there is a very spacious, open plan lounge and dining area with a very well equipped kitchen, having pretty much everything you need for a comfortable stay. The bedroom on the ground floor has two single beds and a TV. This room has en-suite access to a Jack and Jill bathroom with a roll top bath as well as a shower. There are two, very large bedrooms on the first floor, both have en-suite shower rooms. Each of these rooms also has a TV and DVD player! The bedrooms are all amazing and the beds were extremely comfortable. Located in a very quiet area but with easy access to main roads. I would highly recommend staying here.
