Close to the cottage is the community field were your four legged friend can stretch their legs, there's even a dog shower awaiting those muddy paws on their return!

The cottage is well located for guests to visit the golden sandy beaches of Woolacombe and Putsborough, both around a 15 minute drive away and ideal for surfers and beach lovers with its rolling, unbroken surf and views out towards Lundy Island. The high moors, deep valleys and sparkling rivers of Exmoor National Park beckon for other memorable days out. The harbour town of Ilfracombe with Damien Hirst’s bronze sculpture Verity, its many individual shops, cafes and restaurants is nearby and well worth a visit too.

Mrs R,

July Cottage was very comfortable and in a lovely location with walks direct from the doorstep. There is a well stocked village shop a short walk away and a couple of dog friendly pubs also close by. Beaches were only a short drive away and the dog shower in the cottage was put to good use!

Ms J,

Good central location for visiting all the local beaches/towns. Small but comfortable cottage with good quality furnishings. Village pub on the doorstep with good food & service. Need a car to get around but lots of lovely places close by. We had a lovely break and our two dogs had a great time and even a nice shower to wash off all the salt and sand, would definitely recommend July Cottage.

Mrs N,

Lovely quirky seaside cottage. Tastefully furnished, well equipped and very comfortable. Within easy reach of Woolacombe and Croyde with fantastic beach and coastal path walking. Will definitely stay again.

Mrs A,

A small but well proportioned cottage , only approachable on foot . Lots of nice touches in the decor . We enjoyed our stay .

Mr B,
