We stayed here as a family of three, 2 adults and 1 child.
I found the location to be very convenient with Ilfracombe just down the road and Watermouth Castle two minutes the other way. The cottage was clean and well kept, cosy and welcoming. My only downside was the downstairs bathroom and the creaky single beds in the triple room (solved by pulling away from the wall a bit).
The private beach is a great asset - I would've liked it to be clearer that we could borrow stuff to sit on though as I was only told this after I'd left!
The animals are a bonus. We appreciated the welcome cream tea - but gave the eggs we'd been given away to the neighbour as we don't eat them. The neighbour had been told by the owners that they could have more eggs if they wanted but I never met the owner once while we were there.
I'd happily stay here again in the future though, such a lovely spot!
