The cottage was absolutely ideal. Centrally situated for lots of places to visit and in an evening lots of pubs and restaurants in walking distance. The property was well equipped. A lovely double bed in the main bedroom with lots of storage space, a walk-in shower and a fully equipped kitchen. The garden was small but again fully equipped with cushions for chairs sun-sail if required and a BBQ. We had a lovely time there which was helped by a full week of sun.

Mrs T,

Lovely cottage, I am hoping to return to stay again soon.

mr M,

High quality cottage that has been renovated to an excellent standard. Very well equipped and set up for surfers with wash down facilities in the sun-trap garden. Once inside you don't notice you're in the middle of town and the parking at the pub isn't an issue. Go....its brilliant!!

Mr P,

A lovely home in good location. Well thought out and looked after to cater for the needs of holiday makers. Good to return after a day of activity to a cheery wood burner in a comfortable stylish home with a well equipped kitchen.

Ms C,

A very clean, modern and cosy cottage in a perfect location - we had a wonderful stay at Dolphin cottage!

Miss P,

Super little house for an all engaging break, walks, beaches, pubs and restaurants all within a stones throw. Very modern, clean and warm. No access to garden from the side. Would stay again.

Mrs C,

It was a cosy cottage, clean and well presented. Centrally located for pubs and shops. The car parking at the pub worked fine. The garden was a sun trap. As it was small, the play space was lacking, so if you have youngsters who like to play with their toys, you wont have room. Locally we recommend Saunton Sands car park for direct beach access, or Sandy Lane if you fancy a walk over the dunes.

Ms S,

We’ve enjoyed a lovely stay at Dolphin Cottage and were honoured to be your first guests! We had everything we needed and more and loved that the house really felt like a home. The Prosecco was a lovely touch which we thoroughly enjoyed and we wish you all the best for your future holidaymakers. We wouldn’t hesitate to come back or recommend the cottage to others.
