    Due to the lovely rural location, understandably there was low water pressure, therefore shower wasn't very powerful. As a party of 4 adults (2 couples) the location of the bathroom could only be reached by entering the main bedroom, therefore making it very difficult for the other couple to use at times. Would have been nice to have some garden furniture to sit on in the lovely garden.

    The cottage was absolutely lovely and the hot tub was brilliant. Nice touches such as tea bags and milk in kitchen when we arrived. Very peaceful location. Lots of local attractions. Would definitely stay there again and would recommend it to friends and family.

    Beautiful location and cottage. A car is a must if you wish to explore the beaches and surrounding attractions. Lovely log burner, which we used even in the height of summer! Although you pay for the electricity, a little went a long way. We had plenty of pound coins left to use for parking at the beach fronts. You must head to Lynton to Valley of the Rocks if you are over in North Devon. We toured from Croyde to Lynton and the cottage was not to far from anywhere. Overall a great stay and would stay again. Thanks very much! PS. I loved the horses in the field as well as a very friendly dog that came to say hello in the garden.
