Ever heard of Lee Bay? nope! nor had we.....
If you are skimming through reviews, please take the time to read this.
How did you know you had a good holiday? When you feel like you left part of yourself behind! Your heart!
If you love the adventure and exploration like we do, then this will surely rank as one of your most memorable holidays.
The Sea/Bay viewable from Campscott!
Seek out the secret garden in Lee Bay, just out of this world!
Go to Smugglers Cottage on the bay and have some coffee cake (I paid for 1qtr of it to take back with me)
Find all the secret coves and bays while the tide is out! To the left of Lee Bay, walk round the rocks when the tide is out, Trust me! Its like a scene from Indiana Jones!
We had the Blues so hard its taken us nearly a month to write the review due to work and such - normal life, which quite honestly is not the same without Campscott and Lee Bay's finest coffee shop!! We will be going back, we now want to move to the area.
The Accommodation: Absolutely first class A+++!
Extremely pretty, idyllic setting. Our cottage was beautiful, every amenity you would need (we could have cooked a full roast diner with all the appliances/cutlery and cooking equipment) Quiet, comfortable, we were so sad to leave!!
The Hosts: Tony & Kathy were lovely, helpful and thoughtful. Tony waited up for us to arrive through a downpour of rain (which cleared up by the way, had no more rain while we were there!) We were very jealous that they have this lifestyle, and that we had to leave them behind.
There are two horses outside - take some fruit and feed them, dont let the big one steel it all! distract him while you feed the small one!
If I could post pictures I would, however I want this to be as special for you as it was for us, and I wouldnt want to ruin the surprise for you, pure magic awaits!
If you would like to reach me, Tony has my email address from our booking, and I am happy to provide further testament that this was heaven! I just dont think ive done this justice, I could go on forever! but perhaps I should employ a therapist for that.....!
Have fun and enjoy!

Ps. Our ages, in case that means anything, 34 & 26!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Our spacious farm cottages are set in 35 tranquil acres within our own private and picturesque valley overlooking Lee Bay, in an enviably peaceful location, with roads and neighbours over quarter of a mile away! There'll be a delicious Devon cream tea with home baked scones waiting for you when you arrive and all our 4* graded cottages and lodges are furnished and equipped to a high standard to offer you the comforts of home. Every cottage has a dishwasher, washer dryer, wifi, central heating and unlimited hot water from our green biomass boiler that help keeps our carbon footprint low and your comfort levels high! We welcome families, couples and groups alike. Children especially love the fresh air and freedom, with plenty of outdoor space to explore, and for rainy days the games room keeps everyone entertained. Spend the day on the farm and meet the animals, spot the abundant wildlife, help collect eggs or feed the ducks on our ponds. For all that, we are only a short walk along public footpaths to Lee and its local Craft Shop and traditional village pub. There are miles of public footpaths around Lee Bay and the South West Coast Path - we are happy to provide maps and can suggest walks in the local area. Only ten minutes away by car you can enjoy the family friendly and surfing beaches of Woolacombe, Putsborough and Croyde or visit Ilfracombe with its famous Victorian Tunnel beaches. The Tarka trail is right on your doorstep - so bring your bike! Explore Exmoor, take a long day out to Lundy, the Eden project or visit one of the numerous local attractions such as the Sheepdog and Falconry displays at Borough Farm (famous for Channel 5's Mist the sheepdog) which is just up the road. We have a large supply of ideas for days out. Or just simply relax...We are open all year for holidays and short breaks. Dogs are very welcome. ... more less
