Rest and relaxation

  • 5 of 5

The property was quaint and cosy and in a perfect spot for the rest and relaxation that we so needed. Being right By the side of the river with the sound of the water was so calming and the dogs were in 'heaven' great location for walking.

It is a shame that there were no shops in walking distance but that did not dampen our enthusiasm neither did the weather.

I particularly liked the Arga .... Have never used one before but it was great and so easy to use particularly as the instructions were clear and easy to follow.

Would definitely go back sometime😀

Highly recommended!

  • 5 of 5

This was one of the prettiest accommodation we ever had for holidays.

The Cottage is so beautiful, stylishly furnished and full of lovely details.It is luxuriously equipped with everything you could need during your stay, and cooking with the Aga was as great as promised :)

Contact was very friendly and we felt welcome from the very first minute. Everything is perfectly organized (route description, car parking, access and so on) and prepared.

Thank you very much for a perfect week!

Not to forget to mention that the location is absolutely awesome! The 4 miles walk to Lynmouth along the river, for example, was a great experience. Al in all, the 7 days passed by much too fast - we already think of coming back next year.
