Surfing pals and coastal lovers will be drawn to this wonderful North Devon seaside resort, whose marvellous name originates in a Victorian novel. Guests are within walking distance of a family-friendly beach with a pretty pebble border, wild and wonderful water sports along the shore, and curious seafront gift shops to browse and enjoy. There are additional shared grounds around the apartment, and allocated off-road parking is available for one car in the neighbouring car park.

Take a few steps down to the property entrance which leads into bright contemporary-style interiors in calming hues. The living room is perfect for cosy evenings on snuggly seating. Mealtimes are easy with the well-equipped kitchen and dining area for family gatherings. Enjoy spacious bedrooms (one king-size en-suite, and one zip-and-link twin), and underfloor heating in the family bathroom. Fire up the BBQ in the enclosed courtyard garden and dine alfresco, a great space for guests to enjoy.

This popular resort is packed with family activities, plus eateries, pubs and sporting fun. Walk the local Burrows, or hike the South West Coast Path. Try a bucket and spade challenge along the stretch of golden strands, or hone wave skills at the local surf school. Visit the fishing village of Appledore (3 miles) for its pretty quayside, cobbled streets and galleries; from there you can take a ferry over to Instow (4.5 miles), and explore the Tarka Trail which includes 30 miles of traffic-free trails. Take a drive to the Elizabethan port of Bideford (3.5 miles) for market town shopping, or a day trip to Lundy Island.

Wonderful cottage, full of charm and ideal location. The garden was a perfect spot to chill out after being out to the wonderful beaches, especially Saunton Sands.

Great layout and a well maintained property throughout with modern amenities including TV, Garden and Kitchen. Great location for shopping in Braunton with Saunton and Croyde beaches nearby. We travelled with three kids under five and the support from the owners with cots and chairs was excellent. Be sure to try a Thai takeaway from the Siam BistroRead more in Braunton! Hide

What a lovely stay we had at Folly Farm East! A very comfortable cottage within easy reach of all the local beaches and the lovely village of Braunton.

We have stayed in many many properties in the U.K. and this was the hardest to leave! The property is amazing and has both a modern look whilst older features are kept. The development has been done very well. There were a few issues with items needing to be fixed so I hope the owners take it on board.

Folly Farm East is in a great location for getting to the beaches at Croyde, Saunton, Woolacombe etc. The house was cosy and we loved the kitchen/dining area. The kids played with the puzzles/games provided and enjoyed the outdoor space.

Fabulous cottage with every eventuality catered for. So spacious as to give privacy where it might be needed with 8 people. The hub of the house is definitely the kitchen diner: light and airy with fabulous views of the beautifully kept large garden. Braunton has a good range of shops, cafes and pubs: literally along the road from the cottage. The Read moresurrounding area is relatively flat so good for strolling. The beach at Saunton is perfect for surfing, swimming and dog walking. Thank you Hide

A good sized holiday home in a decent location for easy access to beach, shops and eating/drinking places. Facilities were clean and comfy although some more plates and bowls were needed to rotate when being washed. Apart from the large bedroom the other double and twin are very small. Layout of the house could be better (ie massive dining room notRead more that useful) but its an old cottage in part so is what it Is. Agents were helpful and easy to get hold of. Would stay again with friends. Hide
