Mrs Kay S,

Ideal for a get away from every thing, but still within walking distance of a pub and restaurant

Mr George E,

Thank you Alan and James for letting us stay in your 'far from the madding crowd' haven - just what we needed. The cottage was everything and more, what a beautiful location. We enjoyed listening to the owls every evening. We loved Heddon Mouth walk - fantastic views.

Mr G E,

A lovely place to stay in a perfect location. Very well fitted out with everything we might need.

Mrs Anne-Marie C,

Thank you Alan & James for letting us stay in your comfortable cottage. You have thought of everything needed for a lovely holiday, from dog accessories to nice smelling shampoo and shower gel. The kitchen was also well equipped. The beds were also comfortable. Thank you for the cherry & chocolate biscuits on arrival. Thanks again!

Ms M H,

We had a really good holiday

Previous Customer,

This was one of the cleanest and well maintained cottages we have ever stayed in, of which there have been many. Small touches of flowers, and a lovely Devon cream tea awaited us. Well stocked with essentials like tea coffee washing up liquid which you don't often get. In a beautiful area, especially if you like walking.

Mrs Lynne S,
