“Cosy, comfortable cottage”
Reviewed 19 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

This little cottage has everything, yes, everything that you need for a lovely holiday.
It is very well equipped and the beds were among the most comfortable that we have slept on anywhere.

“Everything you need”
Reviewed 20 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

Willow cottage was a perfect little base for a couple of days with out 3 yr old son. Having stayed in other rental places before, I went equipped this time with all the kitchen things that aren't normally there, but no need! Everything you could possibly need was available to use! Brilliant. There was even a pint of milk in the fridge and a bottle of wine on the table! Would highly recommend, the pictures don't do it justice!

“Lovely relaxing cottage in an ideal location”
Reviewed 2 January 2016 for a stay in December 2015

We spent a few days at Willow Cottage for a New Year break and had a lovely relaxing time. The cottage is very much a home from home with everything that you will need. There is also a lovely new furnished garden with great views which will be ideal for when the weather is a little bit warmer. There are plenty of places to eat out in nearby Braunton if you don't want to cook although the kitchen is very well equipped if you do. We would highly recommend a stay!

“A very pleasant stay in a delightful, character cottage.”
Reviewed 3 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

My husband and I spent 5 days in Willow Cottage with our two children, 2 and 5.
We found a clean, simply and well presented cottage, equipped with everything that we needed for a home from home experience.
Brilliant location for comfortably short car journeys to beautiful beaches and other attractions.
Great (big!) fireplace with fabulous log burner - we particularly liked this.

“Cosy cottage in a great location”
Reviewed 27 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Willow Cottage was very comfortable and had everything we needed. It's in a great location for getting to the beaches and other things to do around this part of Devon.

Marwood Gardens isn't too far and is well worth a visit!

“A lovely cottage within easy reach of the coast.”
Reviewed 14 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Willow Cottage is a lovely cottage which is very well maintained. It had a delightful, snug living room and a great selection of DVDs and board games to play after a tiring day surfing at the beach! The bedrooms were very comfortable and both had TVs. We loved the 'red' themed kitchen which was very well equipped.
The house is a short distance from Braunton, where a large Tesco can provide you with everything you need. About 10 minutes away is the beautiful village of Croyde and its wonderful beach.

“Fantastic place.”
Reviewed 1 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We stayed at Willow Cottage for 5 nights and had a wonderful time. It was immaculately clean when we arrived and we loved all the nooks and crannies and absolute character of the place.

The beds were very comfortable and the cottage had everything you need for a pleasant stay. Even when the weather was bad and we stayed in we discovered lots of DVD's and board games and the cottage was very cosy. The owners have thought of everything and the cottage is well stocked. The bottle of wine waiting for us on the kitchen table was a lovely surprise too.

We would highly recommend Squires Fish&Chip shop/restaurant in Braunton- so good we visited two days running!
