The cottage itself is beautiful. It is very clean and well equipped with everything you need. We loved sitting in the garden enjoying the view and had a couple of BBQ's too.
We also made the most of the open fire as the week we were there wasn't fantastic weather wise but this just made it even more cosy in the evenings. Tony and Viv gave us some fab information before we went and didn't mind us contacting them briefly to ask a question whilst we were there. The village is lovely too and everyone seemed really friendly. If you take a dog with you, there is a dog walk we were told about - look out for the VW bonnet 5 mins drive from the village - it takes you through some woods and to a stream. Any local would be able to direct you.
I would highly recommend and we can't wait to go again.
This is a darling little cottage in a chocolate box English village. Didn't get a sun tan so lit the fire in the evenings. Very cozy. Low beams so remember to duck! Owners have obviously put a lot of thought into making this a lovely experience with lots of nice little touches. Village church very welcoming if you like that sort of thing. We will definitely book again.
Really well presented with many thoughtful touches. We spent a memorable Christmas at The Pottery; charming, clean and cosy! Roaring log fires and roasted chestnuts
- couldn't have asked for more. Hopefully we can stay in
The summer and enjoy the lovely countryside . Highly recommended from
A veteran cottage renter!
Thoroughly gorgeous cottage in a beautiful village location. Everybody in the village was friendly and we visited the Community shop a few times, where they were very helpful.
Tony and Viv are very organised and there was plenty of information about how everything in the cottage worked as well as places to go and places to eat in the area.
We thoroughly enjoyed the scones, cream and jam that Viv and Tony had thoughtfully left for us to enjoy, which was great after a long journey.
The week we spent in the cottage was very relaxing and peaceful and it was nice to sit on the sofa in front of a real fire, which Tony and Viv had left made up, just in case it turned a little chilly. Of course, we had to try it out a couple of times!!
During our stay, the weather was warm and we spent a few days on the wonderful beaches of Woolacombe, Croyde and Instow. We enjoyed meals at The Coaching Inn at South Molton (Sunday carvery, a must), The Mill Inn at Bish Mill (very tasty meals) and Williams Arms at Braunton (quite large portions, but reasonably priced).
We would definitely recommend this charming thatched cottage and we can't wait to return.
We had a great time at the Pottery, a lovely cottage in an equally lovely village. We especially enjoyed the log fire, outside space and comfy sitting room. Tony and Viv gave us some great recommendations for local pubs and restaurants, as well as walks, which were spot on.
Unser Aufenthalt hat uns gut gefallen! Alles war sauber und ordentlich. Das Duschen war etwas schwierig, aber bei einem Haus aus dem 17. Jh. auch nicht anders möglich. Es gab viele Informationen, Prospekte, Wanderführer u.ä. im Haus. Sogar W-Lan war vorhanden.
Die Besitzer haben uns schon vor der Anreise sehr freundlich und witzig über alles informiert incl. Anfahrtsbeschreibung. Das war super! So konnte der Urlaub gleich beginnen.
