The warmest of welcomes, very clean and well equipped accommodation, pool and sauna were lovely. This cottage is very cosy, with only a couple steps leading to it and the rest on a flat level it’s ideal for those less mobile. Can’t wait to come again! Many thanks
The house is situated in a great spot in Braunton. The shops are just a few minutes walk, and there are plenty of pubs around too. The check in process is easy (keys in a lock box) and the procedure was well explained by the housekeeper prior to arrival. There is enough off-road parking for 5 or 6 cars, so parking wasn't an issue. We were a party of 11 adults and one baby. We all had loads of space and not once did anybody feel claustraphobic. All bedrooms and bathrooms were spotless when we got there, and towels etc all provided as described. The high-chair was missing but it took one...more
Our cottage was comfortable and clean. The owners were very welcoming and friendly, the gardens were pretty and the swimming pool was warm. The sauna which was on a timer worked too and I really enjoyed it. We would have liked the pool to be open till 8p.m. rather than 7pm as with such lovely weather we didn't get back in time on some evenings to use it. Although it feels as if you are off the beaten track there is a good road network and a lot of places of interest nearby. We would recommend this cottage.
A great place to stay in a fab location. We enjoyed our stay here very much. The accommodation was so homely and a perfect base to explore and play in all this part of the world has to offer. The accommodation itself has a lovely feel and has everything you need. This with the added ease of booking and access made a perfect holiday for our family. Thank you
Comfortable well equipped cottage in a peaceful location. Duror cottage is perfectly situated within a short drive to all the stunning Devon coastal villages and beaches and makes a perfect base for exploring the area. The fishing lake on site is beautiful and well stocked with carp, rudd and roach and whilst we had no children with us, the play area provides a lovely space for children to run off steam. The Crown Inn is a short walk along the lane to the village serving delicious meals and is well worth a visit.
22members of family stayed in five of the six cottages .A family wedding bridal party left from cottages then a week in the Devon sunshine. Cottages had everything we needed and more.New park area for the 9 grandchildren and a lake for those that enjoy fishing.Owners very friendly and looked after us well.would not hesitate in booking again.
A lovely spacious and comfortable character house, very well equipped and spotlessly clean. Extensive garden with play area, picnic benches, bbq and summer house, very relaxing. Such a nice welcome from the owner, and a cream tea! Situated close to Ilfracombe but surrounded by countryside therefore very peaceful.
Luxury camping, great holiday! The safari tent came with everything you could need and extra thoughtful touches. Toilet took some getting used to, but great not to have to share it with others. Would definitely recommend
Stayed with 3 other families, fantastic set up for coping with 16 people, great tents and beds, all the details thought of. Good location not far from beach. Becky (owner) was incredibly helpful. Really memorable weekend, thank you!
Location exceptional. Sandwiched between Woolacombe, somewhere we adore, and picturesque Combe Martin. We would recommend bike hire on the Tarka Trail in Barnstaple and Sea Kayaking in Combe Martin. A walk along Woolacombe Beach to the lovely wee restaurant at Putsburgh Sands is well worth it as is a walk round Morte Point. Food wise, The Red Barn in Woolacombe is brilliant. Because we were out and about so much we didn't spend that much time in our accommodation. However, we were impressed by the cleanliness of The Shippin, the friendlieness of the staff and the excellent leisure facilities. ...more
A tranquil peaceful. Setting. In the Beautiful Devonshire countryside. Welcomed by the owner, the house was big enough to house our large Family. In all we had a very special weekend together of which we shall remember for a long time. Dorothy Joyner.
We had a fantastic week, were looked after really well and enjoyed every minute of our stay. Will be returning in the future.
Situated with good access to Ilfracombe, Woolacombe and Saunton beaches and shops. Accommodation clean and well equipped. Farm building setting beautiful and very well kept. Children’s playground on site also well equipped. Highly recommended.
wonderful property attached to Highbullen hotel which is great and has fantastic leisure facilities. The cottage is within the estate at the bottom of a very steep hill, but still overlooking the wonderful Devon scenery. you can drive up and down the hill to the tea rooms, leisure facilities and hotel but actually by the end of our weeks stay we were all considerably fitter than when we arrived! The a la carte restaurant is very good, the cellar bar is nice too but with a limited selection of bar snacks on offer. The Laura Ashley tea room has wonderful views, great staff and a good selecti...more
The warmest of welcomes, very clean and well equipped accommodation, pool and sauna were lovely. The barn is spacious and ideal for larger groups - one mention is that there are two wings to the barn for some of the bedrooms so take note when planning. Can’t wait to come again! Many thanks
Gorgeous holiday cottage very comfortable, with fabulous garden & lovely owners would definitely stay again
Hi we found our stay wonderful cannot fault the cottages ! Staff pleasant and was more than willing to help out ! If we were ever in the area again we would surely return ! Thank you !
This was our second stay at Cuckoo Down and we are already talking about coming back next year. The tents are comfortable, prettily decorated and well equipped and the setting is beautiful. We went with friends and I’m sure our children will remember forever the hours they spent playing in the woods and in the stream with a sense of freedom that is rare in the modern world.
Beautiful and cosy apartment with lovely finishing touches. Perfect location. Has everything you need in it. When the sun was out, we went and sat with a drink on the front verranda on the ground floor.
Wonderful place to stay with stunning countryside views. Only a short drive from Combe Martin, Ilfracombe and Wollacombe. Accomadation is excellent with each cottage having everything you need for your stay. This is our second visit and I would highly recommend. Thank you Ali and Richard, hope to see you again soon.
The photos don't lie! It is a set in a great location with stunning views from the deck and rear windows. I loved waking up and being able to see the sea from my bed. The house is clean, well maintained and equipped with everything you're likely to need for a family holiday. The older children in our group loved the xbox and the younger ones had huge fun running up and down the sloping garden! Everyone thought the outside shower a great idea but we did have trouble getting two year old twins out of it..... This was our first three generational holiday and the house certainly helped to m...more
Sunnycliffe has a brilliant location over the road from Combesgate Beach and with fantastic views over the beach and towards Woolacombe. Combesgate Beach is excellent for swimming and surfing with golden sands although it can only be used three hours each side of low tide. Sunnycliffe has a great balcony which is a sun trap with great views, At the front is some further outside space which can be used for dining and again providing great views. Sun sets are especially good from the property The property offers three good sized bedrooms and the living space is enough for 6 people. Overall...more
We have just spent a fantastic week on Exmoor staying at the wonderful Exmoor Farmhouse. It's a super house for a large group (we were 12 across 3 generations) with a beautiful view across Withypool and the moor. The house has loads of space and many rooms including a dining room that more than coped with 15 of us on one evening, a large kitchen breakfast room and a living room which also comfortably accommodated all of us for games and quizzes. Some of the decor in the house is amazing, there are books and artwork everywhere and it is clearly a much loved family home when not being used by gu...more
Great place to stay. Friendly welcome. Fantastic garden and games room to play in. Lovely renovated cottage in excellent condition. Enjoyed by all.
Lovely cottage with outstanding views of Exmoor from the garden. Very rural location but central for exploring Exmoor National Park. Very dog and horse friendly - hope to return with equines next time! Made to feel very welcome by Phillipa and Neil.
Stoke up the fire, let the kids run wild and relax. Very good facilities, nearby beaches are great and wonderful hosts. Will be back for sure.
We had a family vacation at the Stables over Easter.There was four families and we had plenty of room to have our own space as well as great spaces for us all to come together. The six bedrooms were excellent with most being en-suite. Nobody was unhappy with their rooms. The outside space was lovely with plenty of parking. The tennis court was great and we had our own version of Wimbledon. A great place to stay in an excellent location for visiting north Devon
This was a great place for our extended family. It’s on the Highbullen resort so there was something for everyone - golf tennis gym swimming etc. The house is comfortable and well equipped. It has good size bedrooms which all have bathrooms en-suite. The kitchen dining and lounge areas are all big so it is perfect for large family groups. We had a wonderful time.
This farm house is just great for a family holiday. The accommodation is well maintained clean and welcoming. The fresh eggs that were in the kitchen was a lovely surprise and delicious too. The location is Just perfect for seeing the fantastic Devonshire countryside and local attractions. Hope to visit again in the future. All the family just loved it.
We were delighted to find Woodpecker Cottage. It is hard to find a small place to stay that allows 3 dogs. Most that do are much larger and bit too expensive for just two people needing one bedroom. It had everything we were looking for - rural, enclosed garden and plenty of walks while not being too far from a shop. The doggy file in the cottage was so helpful and allowed us to plan some days out. We have already recommended to a friend.
Lakeside cottage is reached by a long and winding country lane. The views are beautiful and there is a lake for fishing, our friend caught quite a few fish. Its very quiet and peaceful. There is also a well equipped play area for children set a short distance from the cottage. The cottage is very comfortable and has all mod cons. The Crown Inn West Down is a 15 min walk away and offered very reasonable food. Braunton has lots of restaurants, our favourite was the French Corner Bistro. I would recommend Fliers taxi's if you don't want to drive. Very reliable. Ilfracombe tunnels worth a vis...more
Enjoyed our stay at this cottage Owners lovely ,the cottage was of a very good standard. The cake and milk supplied was a nice bonus . Fishing ok but this time of the year please make sure you have bite cream with you
We were a family of 6 adults and 4 children (5-10 yrs). We booked Braunton Farmhouse via My Favourite Cottages. Their service was good and the agent was generally very responsive. Now about Braunton Farmhouse... a large, old farmhouse that was simply idyllic. The accommodation was excellent - very comfortable and beautifully decorated and furnished. All necessary services were provided. The setting was incredible and so quiet! Having come from the “City” the children loved the space, the freedom to run around and explore, and to play games on the extensive lawns. Views from the house and clos...more
Some minor negatives as follows...no Hoover, no instructions for dealing with waste, apart from that............FAB
A lovely cottage on a quiet site, with views over the countryside. The cottage was clean, well maintained, with everything you may need. There were extensive grounds to relax in. Having the swimming pool to myself was a bonus. The only negative is that you do need a car and drive everywhere, but we are already planning a return visit.
This was a booking for a party of ladies to come and ride on the moor. The house worked well, was comfortable, clean, warm and of good quality. The only two issues were; 1. The wifi had no internet connection for the majority of the weekend and 2. (a very minor one) The wood for the burners was too fresh to burn well, another year and it would be perfect!
We wanted to get away from the hustle and bustle to unplug for a few days and Bluebelle cottage was the perfect place to do it. Lovely walks on the doorstep, friendly people, beautiful surroundings and only an hour from the coast so we got to experience that too. Would recommend to any couple looking to get away and enjoy being together without the distractions of everyday life.
The house was perfect for the 6 of us, plenty of space. The location enabled us to walk to the beach, the pubs and the shop. The house was clean and tidy and we got excellent support when we had any queries or a problem.
After discussing with all those who stayed during our week there was a general feeling that the bathrooms/toilets and kitchen could do with more thorough cleaning. Otherwise this is a great house for a family holiday.
- very fine stay in the very nice location - 3 remarks : - - - once the WiFi came on its performance was very poor - not workable - - - a cooker hood above the cooker in the citchen would be an advantage as now the fire alarm was activated regularly - - - more pans and pots would great as it the actual set will not be sufficient when cooking for 10 people
We have stayed in a previous cottage with my favourite cottages last year but this one was in the most wonderful position.on the beach straight across the road,the most lovely position for breakfast and evening drinks. A quaint grade 11 listed cottage which doesn’t loose its era but is comfortable and clean .we would highly recommend it . The top apartment is quite steep stairs for elderly but there is a very ingenious lift. Easy access to westward ho but Instow has a good beach and has been left alone to be natural
Holiday accommodation was excellent - very clean and comfortable. The facilities available provided great variety for our family with older children. The pool is a good size, the golf course challenging, and tennis courts are in excellent condition. We played croquet and also enjoyed the snooker room whilst having a drink in the evening. We ate out only once in the Laura Ashley Tea Room, but lunch was excellent. South Molton 7 miles away has plenty of shops if self catering, with a Sainsbury’s, an excellent butcher and a cheese shop. We would definitely consider a return visit.
We booked here as it is near friends in the area and my 8 year old was excited about the fishing. (Sadly the weather was horrid, so no fishing was done.) We arrived very late after first visiting with our friends and only after entering did we realise we forgot milk for our morning coffee. On a whim, my husband looked in the fridge and saw a small container of milk - what a wonderful and very welcoming extra! The owners also left a box of biscuits, tea, coffee and sugar! The cottage was well appointed, had a comfortable bed and a nice "homey" feel about it. The owners were very welcoming and r...more
This annexe has much to offer, 2 spacious ensuite bedrooms, one with a lovely view. A cosy living room with traditional features of stone and beams though one needs to be standing to see through the window. We were a little disappointed by the kitchen however which is dated and awkward to use being rather narrow and the sink tucked into a corner. It just didn't quite live up to the expectations we had from web site.
Overall we were impressed with the property. Location is as great. However A few things like lawn not being mowed, no access round the back to the garden and cracked bath panel let it down a little
This is our third visit to “The Shippen “ and we love the beautiful little gem tucked away, it’s got everything you need for a relaxing holiday including a very handy Alexa added since our last stay, we’ve been staying in Fowey for many years and you won’t find better!! Just my opinion of course!
No central heating or hot water for several days despite calls to owners and other contact. Problem with central heating resolved 2 day before departure. .
Comfortable cottage with lovely garden in a very good location, near Croyde Village and also the beach. Had everything we needed for a large family group ranging from 84 years old to 8 months!
We stayed for a week at Lower Leys and had a great time. House was well equipped, nicely furnished and comfortable. Great position with lots to do on the moor and further afield towards the coast. We were graced with good weather but I think entertaining the children in bad weather would have been much more tricky. 2 small things would improve the cottage further...a clothes airer so you don't have to use the tumble drier and the sofa was not the most comfortable but apart from that ...Thank you!
10 of us (6 plus 4 kids) enjoyed family holiday in this well equipped house. Garden was great too. Wi-intermittently working. No facility for recycling waste. Contrary to advice there is no facility at nearby Morrisons (Newquay) and no facility for collection. We ended up going to the council recycling centre. I am sure some guests would resort to putting in the general waste. For these reasons would say 8 out of 10.
Fantastic location, great facilities Lovely property with everything you need in it. Had a really lovely holiday. Weather certainly helped.
Lovely cottage, well kitted out. Kids loved the pool. Great location. Looking at the next date to stay.
A very relaxing cottage with large comfy sofa, large dinning room table, piano and Aga. The garden and outside space with views across the valley is excellent to enjoy during the day or evening, and with the outside seating and BBQ area it's a great GnT spot. The utility rooms fridge freezer, along with the second smaller fridge in the kitchen means you can stock up and enjoy the cottage, or take a short drive in to Barnstaple or Saunton Sands. Downstairs bathroom useful as it's close to the garden. Bedrooms and upstairs bathroom are all well prepared and the master bedroom has a huge bed, w...more
A cute little cottage in a great location,providing off road parking which is a bonus in Braunton...
