    A wonderful cottage and better than pictured. We had a lovely time and Zoe was very helpful and welcoming, the fresh scones were a real treat! We would love to come and stay again (and Frankie the Pug too!) Thank you so much!

    North Town Cottage was perfect for a long weekend stay. Full of character and lovely and cosy in the autumn weather. Zoe was so friendly and the scones on arrival were gorgeous!

    A very charming little cottage, with parking and a garden. Sampford Courtenay is ideally situated for exploring. The downside to the cottage is that it is on a crossroads and the traffic noise is incessant night and day. We appreciate it's hay making time but numerous lorries and tankers pass through there. Sadly that would stop us returning. The ground floor living area is lovely and provides everything you need. However there were two problems upstairs. In the smaller bedroom the mattress needs replacing, it had a huge dip in the middle, which was aggravated by the sloping floorboards, we tried turning it over but it was still the same, so did not provide support or a comfortable nights sleep. In the main bedroom the floorboards slope in all sorts of directions but the biggest problem is that there is a step up in the middle of the room which is fine during the day but when dark is easy to forget, and my husband tripped over it but luckily wasn't injured. Other guests have mentioned it and a danger tape has been stuck on it but as previously suggested, if the floor was levelled with a step at the door to the bedroom the problem would be resolved.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; It is always most helpful if maintenance or other issues are brought to our attention at the time. We and/or the Agency will always endeavour to take prompt remedial action where reasonable and practicable. Perhaps worth noting, is that in a 300+ year old property, sloping/uneven floors are common and that structural/safety issues can preclude the most obvious solutions to some perceived problems. The comfort, safety and well-being of all guests is a priority so fault-reporting like leaving the cottage clean on departure is a courtesy to the next guests. Being in a rural farming area, agri-business traffic fluctuates according to season and weather. This year has seen more such traffic due to hay cutting and catching up after the exceptionally wet spring. Subsequent guests have not found traffic incessant or intrusive, nor from our Visitors Book, has traffic noise been an issue for the majority of guests over the last couple of years.

    Friendly hostess and host. Very dog friendly with the run of the orchard and paddock. Both north and south coast attractions within reach and several NT properties within easy reach.
