About Christina Leonard
Myself and my husband have been letting our two self catering holiday cottages for over 25 years. We enjoy meeting people coming to stay with us and helping them to enjoy their holiday. The cottages are within our 45 acre beef farm, on which we have numerous farm birds, chicken, ducks, peacocks and wild pheasants. Frequently I have children from the holiday cottages watching me with the poultry in the morning and helping to collect eggs! We live in the farmhouse near the cottages and are on hand if you have any enquiries during your stay. The position of the cottages is completely separate from the farmhouse and allows for complete privacy. We enjoy seeing guests using the swimming pool and making the most of the gardens and play areas.
Christina Leonard purchased this Cottage in 1980

On arrival we were greeted by Christina who gave us a tour of the cottage and surrounding facilities. The cottage was very clean and suited all our needs. I would highly recommend this cottage. The handmade scones were gorgeous. Thankyou Christina for a very pleasing few days. June & family
Very cosy and a warm welcome
We had a mini road trip and stayed at Millers Cottage for 4 days. The weather was misty and wet but there was still plenty to do in the area from coastal walks to soft play for the kids. Every evening we spent about 2 hours playing in the indoor heated swimming pool which was fantastic.
All of the towels, bed linen etc where provided and were comfortable and clean. The property was was very clean and spacious for the four of us. It had everything we needed for a comfortable stay.
It was lovely and cosy of an evening with pjs on watching a movie.
An excellent stay, Christina was a great host and we would definitely recommend and return.
Lovely spacious property
We shared the cottage with our daughters and grandchildren and it was wonderful. There was everything you needed and more. Christina gave us a lovely welcome with a cream tea and flowers. Our grandchildren absolutely loved the fact that Christina let them hold her one day old chick and duckling. The play area was really good and the indoor heated pool a real bonus, as well as the games room. The cottage is well situated for visiting the North Devon coastal resorts.
Thank you, we are pleased you enjoyed your holiday with us.
It was lovely to show the children the newborn chicks and ducklings, a good experience for them.
We were delighted to meet your family and would welcome you back in the future.
Absolutely fantastic - a wonderful cottage
We had a wonderful 2 weeks at Millers Cottage - Christina and Gordon were so friendly and helpful. It is a lovely cottage with everything you need - all the little touches make a difference eg. dishwasher tablets, salt and pepper. We arrived to homemade scones and fresh flowers from the garden. The swimming pool and games room were perfect for the boys (16 & 18 years). We ate out in the garden most nights and I loved sitting reading there - it was just perfect.
There is so much to do and see around the area - Clovelly, Ilfracombe, Westward Ho, Padstow. The Quince Bee attraction at South Molton was great.
We also spent many lazy days at the cottage because it was so comfortable and peaceful. We would thoroughly recommend staying here - it is one of the best holidays we have had and we will definitely be going back. A huge thank you to Christina and Gordon.
