“Charming cosy cottage”
Reviewed 2 March 2016 for a stay in February 2016

The cottage was very spacious, clean and very pretty. We had awful weather but the garden looked lovely and the dogs enjoyed sniffing around out there. The log burner was a great addition and we made good use of it. Great selection of dvd's and games.

Would have been great to have a curtain or blind in the kitchen window lovely to see out but at night if your in the kitchen cars and people can easily see in :-)

Took my 5 year old boy for a week. We both loved it. So much character, peaceful, everything you could need. And very cosy with the woodburner. We even swam in the sea...

“Great week”

The cottage was all that was claimed in the descriptions, and everything was done to make our stay pleasant. That included a helpful guide to great beaches and walks - and there are lots of those within a reasonable drive. We had a lovely week. How could you not?

“Fabulous Family Break”
Reviewed 26 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We always spend a long time choosing a cottage as we have three small dogs and that is often an obstacle to finding somewhere special. Not so with the Chocolate Box, Thatched Cottage, Jilly the owner was quick to reply and very helpful accommodating our pooches.
The cottage is very old but surprisingly big, a fabulous Dining Room in the center of the cottage is a wonderful room to sit with family and enjoy a meal. Our favourite thing was lighting the wood burner in the early evening and enjoy the cosy feel in the Lounge.
The three bedrooms are all large and beautifully decorated. The outside space is surprisingly big with hidden seating areas throughout the garden and importantly completely secure for our pooches.
A lovely touch was the bottle of Rioja left for us which we enjoyed on our first night. The cottage is well situated for trips out from Woolacoombe to Crodye beaches which were amazing and the fenicular railway at Lynton and Lynmouth which was a real treat.
The Chichester Arms less than a mile from the cottage offers truly gorgeous food and very generous portions, amazing value a must.
We will if returning to North Devon stay again. Home feeling relaxed and recharged :0)
