    Lots of small details and comforts that were provided making it a special stay. The cottage was surrounded by trees in a lovely situation making it very private. Secure garden so dog was safe. Beach very close for easy flat walks.

    Lovely setting for this cottage and Nikki and Dave were so friendly they really wanted us to share their cottage. Great position to explore North Devon and Cornwall with Instow being an amazing estuary with beaches for the dog to have a good run and dog friendly restaurants along the front

    what a fabulous cottage! nik & dave were fabulous hosts, the open plan kitchen/diner & lounge is lovely & the bedrooms & bathroom were perfect! there are plenty of local amenities, with pubs, convenience stores & an excellent chippy all close by. there’s even a beach within walking distance, although the location is perfect to enjoy the whole of north devon from. excellent value for money & not even the great british weather could dampen a lovely week’s happy holiday!!

    We had a great stay at Oaktree Cottage which is in a very private and quiet setting. The Cottage was comfortable and well equipped with a lovely secluded garden which we used daily as a result of the beautiful weather. The owners were friendly, welcoming and helpful. The area is a fantastic base for exploring all North Devon has to offer.

    Lovely little cottage, quietly tucked away at the bottom of the owners garden, magical! Centrally located to all neighbouring villages and amenities further a field. The owners were more than helpful and friendly.

    The new owner gave us a warm and friendly welcome and was helpful during our week long stay. we would seriously consider staying again. The cake, eggs, milk and flowers on arriving in the cottage, was a very thoughtful touch and much appreciated.
