Guestbook comments from the owner

Had a great stay here at Hele Bay. Thanks for allowing us to rent this fab cottage. very clean and with ample space for the family.The X box kept the kids entertained on the couple of rainy days but a great location for for beaches and towns. As we have stayed in north devon many times i would say this is one of the best places to stay to get to the top attractions and sights. Would thoroughly recommend this lovely cottage to my friends and family for an excellent getaway.

Not enough stars available for this property

  • 5 of 5

Just spent Christmas in Honey Cottage. Nanny, Grandad, Mum dad & 13 & 15 year old boys. What a lovely place & so well equipped. We even managed to cook a full Xmas dinner. Lots of space to have quiet time if required. A plus was the WiFi which worked perfectly. Richard did everything possibly to make our stay enjoyable. We were a bit worried being winter that it may have been cold/damp. This was definitely not the case, plenty of heating & hot water and spotlessly clean. Perfect location for so many places. A bit hilly so not suitable for those with walking difficulties, but that is Devon. Can recommend both the Hele Family Pub & Hele Billies great atmosphere in Billies & food is lovely. The pub has a games room downstairs with a skittle ally, dart board & soft play area for little ones. We will most definitely be going back.

Comfy cottage in ideal location

  • 5 of 5

Honey Cottage is a delightful property in a quiet, convenient location with a small general store, excellent pub and Hele Bay beach all within easy walking distance. The cottage is deceptively spacious with plenty of room for everyone to "do their own thing" be it watching TV in the main lounge, reading in the cosy conservatory or preparing a meal in the large, well equipped kitchen. The beds were comfy and the first night we lay awake just listening to the peace & quiet, so different from our home with traffic noise from the A1 and planes from Luton airport overhead! The only thing that could have improved our week's stay was if the weather had been better but it didn't stop us going out every day and at least the strong winds were warm!

A hidden gem unforgetable!

  • 5 of 5

What a gem!! Lovely comfortable cottage with everything you could possibly need. Although the weather was slightly unpredictable at times we all enjoyed our stay. We visited local attractions like Watermouth Castle which out 3 year old granddaughter thought was "amazing" and Clovelly which was difficult to access (very steep to walk down) but well worth the visit! And of course we made the most of the super beach at Woolacombe.

Our stay at Honey Cottage,

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week staying at Honey Cottage in Hele Bay. The cottage was spacious, had comfortable beds and had everything we needed. The cottage was in a good spot, with little passing traffic, so was quiet and peaceful. We had not been to Hele Bay before and were happy with the location and amenities in the village itself. The cottage was not far from the main road, hence Woolacombe, Ilfracombe etc. were easy to get to.
