Lovely cottage and the owners are also so kind and polite. In a nice little secluded part away from the main road. Fresh eggs and a freshly made cake on arrival, with tea, coffee, milk and sugar. Has everything you need like iron, vacuum cleaner, washing up materials and cleaning tools. Towels and loads of loo roll. The owners have gone through a lot of trouble to make the stay as welcoming as possible. Not a long travel from beaches and things to do. Only 13 minutes from Tesco and 4 minutes from the local Co-Op. Pet friendly. I would highly recommend.

The cottage is comfortable, quite well equipped, and reasonably warm. It's a bit of a carry with the luggage, but on the plus side, you are tucked away in the woods, well away from traffic noise etc. We liked ii and are looking at booking again next year It's a bit of a walk to the local pubs and the shop etc, but if you can't walk far, there are bus stops, close by, for travel in both directions. We moved the car just once during the week; that was to go to Woolacombe - definitely not worth the effort. Everywhere else we walked or went by bus.
