    Very clean and comfortable holiday cottage. Good quality furnishings. Beds very comfortable (except for the single bed in 3rd room which was average). Nice garden. Entire property very well maintained. Set in pleasant quiet village. Quick access to main roads - ie not miles down small track roads! Happy to recommend this cottage for anyone to stay in.

    Saltbox is a lovely property,there was confusion over the recycling process and there needs to be a warning regarding the step in the downstairs cloakroom, It is very cosy and the flagstone floors and sash windows added a traditional cottage feel. Our week went far too quickly and we would love to stay there again. It was so well equipped and comfy. It is a dream property and the goody basket was a lovely surprise!

    A beautiful house in the heart of the village. Lots of lovely walks to Bude and Widemouth on the doorstep. House was spacious, brilliantly maintained and kitted out to a very high standard. Great outside eating area in a private garden setting. Comfy beds , fluffy towels and WiFi (for the kids!)

    Our 3rd time of staying here and another lovely stay despite the weather not being great. The cottage was as nice as ever and was warm and snug during the cooler weather. Already booked again for next year.

    A fantastic location in a pretty village. Taking less than 5 mins to get to Bude in the car. Saltbox was a super clean cottage and it was obvious that the owner had lived / regularly used it, given the number and quality of the amenities. Comfortable beds and great showers/baths. The parking area directly in front of the house as commented was s concern before I arrived, but we hardly noticed it and the Windows were all fully double glazed so there was little road noise at all, which I was pleasantly surprised about. Don't let that put you off booking. We even used a local holiday cottage swimming pool on the street that was open to the public in off season. Would definitely go back.
