Mr Michael B,

Lovely cottage, very comfortable in a nice location in the village. Handy for visiting all areas of the North Devon Coast.

Mr Andy P,

Super little cottage, excellent for dogs with its own shower, not that we used it. Good kitchen facilities and all the little extra bits included, much more than we were expecting.
