This is a really lovely cottage in a fantastic location, but close enough to all beaches in Saunton sands and Woolacombe and other north Devon places worth a visit.

Everything was thought out and we did not want for anything! We had a lovely few days and even the teenagers quite enjoyed having no wifi for a few days a good detox for us all! Thanks Roger for answering all my questions we will definitely be returning again.
