Lovely cottage in a secluded location with great views of the Heddon Valley. We had a great welcome package including wine which just added to the experience. Cottage location handy for most of Exmoor.

Mr G,

In 20 years of staying in cabins or lodges in the Devon and Cornwall areas, NOTHING can compare with chauffeurs cottage. The quality, attention to detail and cleanliness of the cottage is first class. The location could not be any better and the owners are fantastic. I always hope for the best but this honestly exceeded all expectations. I cant imagine that anyone would not be blown away by this cottage. Make a point of watching the sunset from the outside seating at least once in your stay, its beautiful.

Mr P,

Had a delightful week in chauffeur’s cottage. Stunning location and very high quality accommodation. Planning to make a return visit at some point. Would recommend to anyone wanting a holiday in North Devon.

Mr C,

Exceptional cottage, with everything you need and more. Stunning and peaceful location, away from it all, but within easy reach of Exmoor, the coastal path and quaint towns like Lynmouth and Combe Martin. Would highly recommend this cottage.

Dr S,
