“A lovely retreat in breathtaking countryside.”
Reviewed 23 March 2013 for a stay in March 2013

We have just arrived back from a 5 night stay at this lovely bolt-hole in the North Devon countryside. The accommodation is as described and the photographs are a true reflection of how it looks. There is everything you need for self catering. The local shop is well stocked as are the 2 supermarkets at Coombe Martin. Poppies is spotless, warm and welcoming. Fresh flowers, scones and clotted cream were nice touches after a long wintery drive from Derbyshire. Andy made the booking very straightforward and replied to emails and queries promptly. We had some great walks. The coastal path walk from Berrynarbor to Ilfracombe should be on everyone's 'bucket list' as well as an evening walk in the sun along Woolacoombe beach. Verity is outstanding and we were lucky to take photographs of her against a brilliant blue sky, followed by wine and cake at Number 11 The Quay. We also enjoyed our day to Lynton and a walk up the river from Lynmouth, then across the moors and back down the coastal path. The 3 course lunch at Brookhill Sculpture Park for £14.95 with free entrance to the park is a must. The meal was exceptional. Berrynarbor is an ideal base to explore this area and staying at Poppies is the icing on the cake!

Sky hd, free wifi and most of all, made to feel like one of the family.

Poppies is an excellent retreat for anybody wanting a break away from it all.

Liked best: Everything - but having a base like Poppies really was the making of our holiday. Great to go out and get muddied up but to come back, hot shower, good oven to cook in, full Sky, DVD. Proper relaxed and cosy at night.
Liked least: Having to come home. I truly didn't want to leave. It really is a beautiful place.

“A relaxing retreat, home from home.”
Reviewed 3 October 2012 for a stay in July 2012

The village is in an ideal location for exploring north devon and is lovely with local pub and general store, also had excellent facilities for our two dogs.
The cottgae had all the facilties you would expect to a very high standard not only for us but the canine members of our family as well.
We were made to feel very welcome by Andy and his family and would most definately go back to Poppies again.

pretty, clean cottage set in a great location. There were lots of things to do locally, pubs, shopping, beaches, coastal walks. Would recommend for families and couple alike, especially those with pets.
