Deciding to take a quick break away during one of the busiest times of the year (Easter School Holidays) can sometimes be fraught with anxiety and problems and so as we trolled the myriad of sites looking for suitable accommodation for ourselves and children we were stunned at what Ettiford Cottages had to offer, could this be too good to be true we asked? Hazel cottage (sleeps 4) was perfect in everyway. Not only was there a welcoming tray of fresh scones, clotted cream and jam but the under-floor heating was the best 'welcome mat' on such a cold day. The cottage was well equipped, clean and spacious enough (two bathrooms, yeah) to meet our needs. If I were to add a minute downside I would only say that perhaps there needed to be a few additional items of crockery, knives and forks as we seemed to run out easily and didn't want to keep putting the dishwasher on or spend time washing up, watch out for the luxurious heated towel rails too, save burning delicate parts! A three seater sofa would have been more suitable for us to relax on after taking in the beautiful, long, coastal walk. Oh and a mobile signal not available, bothered the children more than us though. but the location of the cottage is perfect for that part of Devon as everything is on your doorstep and the views are magnificent. The atmosphere is very relaxing, the neighbouring cottage friendly but quietly respectful. We would definitely recommend Ettiford Cottages, tempting as it is to keep it our little secret, thank you again!
