“An excellent home from home cottage!!”
Reviewed 2 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Marsh cottage is clean, well equipped and has everything you could possibly a need for a brilliant holiday. We went with my 3 year old son he loved the bunk beds and the toy room was a great hit! The cottage is perfectly situated. We would recommend it to anyone!

“Great place to stay”
Reviewed 13 November 2012 for a stay in November 2012

Marsh cottage is a well equipped cottage with all the comforts of home. We have just enjoyed a relaxing week in this lovely cottage, late starts to the day, romantic nights in front of the log burner. Great food at the Hunters inn. Hope to return with the grandchildren.

“A truly memorable stay at this Cottage”
Reviewed 14 September 2012 for a stay in August 2012

This has been my second stay at this cottage and it only gets better.
This place had everything I could dream in terms of location, amenities & cleanliness.
The recent visit in Aug 2012, I brought along 3 generations of family and it was truly a memorable time. We loved cooking in this exceptional kitchen and utilising the rangecooker. It was so perfect we tried to look for faults but couldn't find anything. Top marks to the owners as they really know what their guests require while on vacation. And top marks to the many guests which have maintained the quality of the property.

“Beautiful peaceful cottage, well equipped and dog friendly.”
Reviewed 4 June 2012 for a stay in May 2012

We have just returned after a wonderful week spent in Marsh cottage. The kitchen is a joy so very well equipped they have thought of everything, and the play room was brilliant our young grandson was quite poorly whilst there so was quietly amused with all the toys and books , we have never had this in any other cottage.The garden shed held some gorgeous outdoor cushions and a fabulous umbrella as we were lucky enough to have good weather, also many outdoor games.The bedlinen was white and crisp and the beds and pillows very clean and comfortable. All in all a very pleasurable stay.

“Stylish and welcoming country retreat”
Reviewed 18 April 2012 for a stay in March 2012

We stayed at Marsh Cottage over Easter and were really impressed by both the location and the style and attention to detail that the owner has put into the cottage itself. The cottage whilst bagging lots of character is also well equipped with top class kitchen , spacious bedrooms and living space as well as a great games room for the kids which proved effective when the weather let us down. The cottage lies in a peaceful hamlet surrounded by farmland which is great for walks and exploring the countryside. The narrow roads may be a bit daunting to some at first but you quickly become accustomed to them and adds to the feeling of staying at a rural retreat. The cottage proved a great base for exploring North Devon and Barnstaple , Bideford ,Woolacombe and Croyde are all within easy reach by car . I honestly cant find any negatives to say with regard to cottage as it had everything we required for our holiday , would definitely like to return.
