Few holiday cottages live up to their marketing verbiage BUT Briarwood does and goes much further.... excellent house in an excellent locations. One of the very best holiday homes we have ever stayed in... and we have been to many over the years... it’s all the small details that make the difference... Briarwood has an abundance of small details.

Mr M L,

Another lovely stay in Lee - and our fourth at Briarwood. We hope to stay there again!


A fabulous house in stunning location. Everything top quality. Spacious and so well equipped. Julie from Marsdens kindly managed to arrange a slightly earlier check in for us as weather was so poor the day we arrived. Very pleased with Marsdens customer service. Love this part of North Devon and have been visiting here for over thirty years .

Mrs Helen B,

Thank you so much for such a fantastic week in such a stunning house and location. We have visited this area every year for the past 30 years and this is by far the best holiday home we have stayed in and we will definitely return. We have all loved the garden and stunning views and there has been plenty of space for our expanding family and pets! Very special thank you to the housekeepers who must work so hard keeping this house to such a high standard - superb! And a big thanks to the owner for providing so many extra touches and for the wonderful equipment in the kitchen - just everything you need is here and all excellent quality too. Thank you so much it just made our holiday!

Burgess Family,

Best holiday house in Devon! Thank you for thinking of everything to make our stay so happy. Weather also brilliant - we have been so lucky. We appreciated the lovely garden and of course the pool table.

Past Customer,

We were all comfortable and very content with the facilities.

Mr Andrew P,

Briarwood is by far and away the best house we have stayed in within the north Devon area (we’ve expereince three other rentals in Lee and one in Croyde). The cleanliness of the house and quality of fixtures, fittings and equipment were exceptional. Thank you for making our family celebration of a 60th birthday so special. We very much hope we’ll be back!

Miss Sarah M,

I would like to compliment the owners on the overall design of the cottage and its environs.In particular the patios were spacious and the patio furniture gave a great sense of well being. Great kitchen and the interior was light and airy.We would like to come again.
