    Had a really lovely week, Nik and Dave were lovely hosts and made us feel really welcome, the dog treats were a very welcome touch. Would most definitely book there again when we come down to Devon. Would recommend to anyone.

    Very restful holiday. Very pleasant hosts. The area was relatively quiet. The beach at Instow wonderful! Also loved Appledore and Fremington Quay. Accomodation of a good standard. Airy rooms...very good in hot weather. Peaceful setting with large decking for relaxing and watching the many butterflies. We slept well; such a comfortable mattress! It is a shame that motorists do not understand what 40mph means on the adjacent road...but it did not spoil the holiday.

    An excellent holiday home, so peaceful despite being on a main road. Parking available off road. Very friendly hosts, we were welcomed by a home baked cake, milk in the fridge and a vase of flowers on the table.

    The new owners have worked magic in the first few weeks of ownership. New beds,kitchen and fencing to make a small enclosed garden.Lots of birds,birdsong all day,nice decking area to enjoy. They are open to suggestion and very friendly both to us and our dog. Excellent dog walks less than 100 yds away or Instow beach very near. The chalet is very well equipped warm and comfortable. If you suffer from a disability its a short flat walk from the parking area and the excellent shower is very roomy with enough space for a shower stool (bring your own).Frequent buses from here to anywhere in the vicinity bring your bus pass. Its a great place to stay,quiet and private ideal for silver ghosts. One double and a day bed,both comfortable. If we return to N Devon in the future we will certainly stay here again
