The cottage was amazing it was so clean and had everything we needed to have a great stay. The hot tub just added to the enjoyment. We loved that we could walk into Bideford in 10mins but also feel like we were tucked away for everything. We saw some lovely places that we hadnt been to before as we have always stayed in Croyde. Appledore was quaintRead more and had some great places to eat and drink and Instow had a beach that is dog friendly. The little touches by the owners were appreciated greatly Hide

Tarka View is in a really great location for visiting North Devon. The owners were lovely and clearly take great pride in their properties, the cottage was spotlessly clean! The hot tub is pristine and was a nice evening soak after a good day out. It is small, yes, but very well equipped with lovely little touches, superb!
