We knew that Devon would be a lovely place to visit, however the cottage really made the trip a memorable one. Everything about the cottage made us feel comfortable and relaxed and the locals were very friendly. Squires fish and chips in Braunton was so good that we went twice, and enjoyed our food on the cliffs overlooking the beach and sunset over the sea. With the night ending watching TV in front of the fire. Some great walks with outstanding views, never being too far away from the cottage. I would recommend the cottage to anyone looking to spend some time away with family and enjoy the time together. Everything was clean, well kept and accessible - we even had everything needed to make a cake! Thank you for making a lovely weekend, we will be visiting again!

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.
