“Lovely cottage - very cosy when it's wet and windy outside!”
Reviewed 31 October 2013 for a stay in October 2013

The photos don't do the cottage justice - the lounge is lovely with a huge inglenook fireplace and beams. It was warm and comfortable when it was wet and windy outside. There's a really good selection of games, DVDs and books. However, no children's books, so take your own. The kitchen was very well equipped, but we found it difficult to seat a family of 4 at the dining table.

“Very Impressive Devon Cottage”
Reviewed 22 October 2013 for a stay in October 2013

Lovely weekend stay in this well equipped cottage. Bottle of red wine on arrival - what a welcome! Settees very comfortable. Kitchen has everything you might need.
Parking right outside. Short drive to Saunton Sands beach - fabulous for long walks.
Braunton has lots to offer in the way of restaurants, cafes and shops.
Didnt get chance to use the log burner as weather mild for the time of year but logs were available if needed.
A good drive from the Midlands makes this a great location for a weekend break.
Would love to return soon.

“Stunning property”
Reviewed 10 January 2013 for a stay in December 2011

We love this area but this property is the best we have ever stayed in. The photos looked good but was amazed at the quality of the furnishings and how well equiped it is with lots of extra personal touches.The cottage had a wood burner which was fab, warm and cosy, especially for the time of year.
Parking was good and the cottage near to all the local facilities We had an excellent meal in the local pub, who were very friendly. Braunton has everything you need and great places to eat and the beaches are the best in Devon.
We took my elderly parents who enjoyed the property very much.
Be back soon!!!
