“A week isn't long enough!”
Reviewed 4 July 2012 for a stay in June 2012

We have stayed in many holiday cottages over the years and so we arrived with pre-conceived ideas about what we had booked. I'm happy to say this exceeded even our expectations! The location is fabulous, with plenty to see and do in the surrounding areas. The farm itself is in a lovely quiet area, so we all slept really well. The cottage itself had everything we needed and the recent renovations had been done to a very high standard - a real home from home. The facilities for the children were excellent - ours loved the trampolines, the pool, the goats and rabbits and the indoor badminton court. We also booked the mobile beautician and had a lovely pampering session. The owners were really welcoming and friendly and we on hand to help if we needed anything. A week wasn't long enough for us - so we've already booked for 2013!!

“Luxury Self Catering”

I booked last minute to stay here with my husband, our new baby and the dog. What a stroke of luck for us that there happened to be availability at Rose Cottage. The cottage had all the facilities you could wish for. Having a baby meant we spent most evenings 'in' and the well equipped kitchen made cooking evening meals easy with a dishwasher to help tidy up. The TV was great quality, and the washing machine and dryer also came in handy when I started to run out of baby clothes!
The pool was fabulous with the warm temperature of both the room and water meaning it was perfect for the babys first swim, and with the weather not being so hot, it gave us the feeling of summer heat. The other facilities such as the pool table, petting zoo and trampolines will definately be fun when we hope to return again with other family members with older children.
The owners are very very nice, friendly and helpful, but also let you have your own space so you can feel your holiday home is your own. A stay in any of the cottages is thoroughly recommended.
For things to do, we walked to Fremington Quay from the cottage and found they had the best freshly made cream teas and they even had homemade treats for the dog to enjoy. *You can drive there if you don't want to walk)
Instow is a nice place to take your dog for a run on the beach and both pubs there do great food. We found the cottages location great to drive to all the main resorts if you don't mind driving for upto an hour, we visited Ilfracoombe, Woolacoombe, Westwood Ho!, Lynmouth and even across the border to Bude - and all in a week. (Beautiful Beaches)
