“Beautiful location...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 August 2011 for a stay in August 2011

The three cottages on the property are a converted barn. We stayed in Owl Cottage which sleeps four people, 1 double and 1 twin room. The cottage is tastefully decorated in a rustic style and is reasonably well equiped (plenty of crockery - some chipped, a washing machine and dishwasher too).

The location is beautiful, the cottages are set in 8 acres of land that guests are free to explore. The view from the patio accross the roling hills of Devon is an idylic spot for alfresco dining and for watching the kids play on the field in front of the cottages.

The cottages are an excellent base for visiting sevaral large sandy beaches that are all within half an hours drive (Instow, Northam Burrows, Westward Ho!) and Appledore which is fantastic for crabbing.

The Instow Arms is right on the sea and is a lovely place to eat at any time of day. They serve fabulous sea food and amazing hot chocolate too! We also liked The Cranford Inn - great food and reasonable prices.

Having said that...

We did not recieve any booking confirmation or directions for the property, despite phoning and being reassured that it was being emailed to us as we spoke. So, we made are way there the old fashioned way, using their address and a map!

We finally arrived after a very stressful 6 hour journey (should have taken 4 hours) due to holiday traffic on the A303 and our exhaust EXPLODING half way there. There was no one to welcome us - the owner was asleep and her teenage daughter thought it an imposition to wake her - so, we let ourselves in.

Whilst the place was very tidy and 'surface' clean, it was obvious that no proper cleaning had been done for some time - light shades were covered in dust with cobwebs hanging, skirting boards, under bedside tables and beds were thick with dust. However the worst thng was the inside of the shower which was thick with mildew and slime - I spent my first morning there cleaning and scrubbing before I could even contemplate using it! NB. lower seal on the shower door leaks.

Top survival tip - remember your marigolds!
