The furnishings, decoration and renovations are superb and the views over the estuary are spectacular. The owner was very helpful and being able to park our car was a bonus. We stayed for 3 nights visiting the local area. We recommend taking the ferry ( which only runs in the Summer months and is manned by volunteers) across to Instow and walking along the Tarka Trail and walking round the Northam Country Park and along the beach where we viewed a spectacular sunset. A wonderful holiday and we would not hesitate to recommend Dartonia Cottage to friends and family.
