Fabulous cottage and lovely host who kindly provided home made cake, eggs and flowers when we arrived. The private garden was a bonus giving a feeling of being in your own home. The area was new to us but we had fun exploring using our newly acquired senior citizen bus passes! The local stagecoach buses were excellent although far busier than our buses at home!

Very clean and well set appointed for 2 people and a dog. The owners were extremely welcoming - flowers, eggs and delicious cake! Location is perfect for visiting North Devon - Instow, Appledore, Lundy and the western side of Exmoor. Instow has good Pubs/Restaurants and a wonderful delicatessen!

A superb cottage in a lovely area. Very dog friendly with a secure garden. Walking to the beach/pubs is 20 minutes & it’s also perfectly located for visiting pretty much anywhere in North Devon. Highly recommended!
