“Great spot for a family holiday”
Reviewed 7 October 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We had the best family holiday in this cottage. Lots of space. Great kitchen for cooking in. Gorgeous garden and lovely walk to the beach.

“Great cottage in a beautiful location”
Reviewed 1 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

A lovely charming thatch cottage, a brilliantly appointed kitchen, cosy lounge/diner with wood burner. The owners only live next door so are on hand should there be any problems. Short walk to the beach across the fields and what a beach! Fantastic large beach, plenty of space for everyone even at peak season and great for surfing.
The only downsides were, nowhere to dry wetsuits etc on the few wet days we had when hanging them on the line wasn't an option! And towels not being included. Which whilst we knew this before hand, I managed to forget as so used to not having to take them.
Would definitely recommend and definitely return

“Lovely luxury cottage, great garden for kids, great location”
Reviewed 4 August 2014 for a stay in June 2014

A lovely cottage, very well appointed with a top end fitted kitchen and bathroom. (Bathroom and wc on ground floor if this is an issue for you - it wasn't for us !) Wifi and Sky TV is included and there are loads of maps, guides and games in the property. Both bedrooms were well furnished and the beds very comfortable. Thick stone walls and stone floors keep the property cool in the summer.
Despite adjoining the owners' property the cottage is very private with it's own entrance and gardens (outdoor seating area, BBQ, huge children's swing/slide set, fully enclosed), parking for a couple of cars in a village that only has a few houses so is very quiet.
The walk to the beach is a bit "up and down" (we come from flat Lincolnshire!) but only takes 15 minutes or so and the views are breathtaking. Putsborough beach is stunning: empty, safe, clean. Our kids (6 + 3) totally loved it.
Only drawback: no towels provided. We knew this so took our own but it's quite unusual these days not to have towels included. This won't put you off though. Go to Putsborough and stay here, you won't be disappointed !

“Best place to stay in North Devon”
Reviewed 5 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Lovely quiet place, well equipped to deal with both hot sunshine and cold rain. Hardly had to use the car at all (a real bonus along those narrow Devon lanes.)
The cottage is cleverly laid out to give alot of privacy and the owners couldn't have been more welcoming. I hope to go again but can imagine a gem such as this will quickly become very difficult to book.

“Haven ……Heaven.”
Reviewed 26 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

This delightful small cottage has a large garden with pretty and secluded seating area and comprehensive play equipment. Dog friendly to responsible owners,too.
The kitchen has everything one could want to cook full meals (though the fancy cooker took a bit of working out!). There is a big dining table for sociable meals and games(many provided) and a wood burner for chilly nights.
Bedrooms are beautifully 'dressed' with extra cushions and the beds of good quality. It was so quiet we all slept like babies!
The position,just a couple of fields from the glorious beach and its expensive parking, is absolutely perfect. Marwood Hill Gardens and Rosemoor both close.
My only, very small, (subjective )complaint would be the opaque privacy glass in the front room french window felt…odd and made the room rather dark.
Claire and John could not have been kinder or more helpful. Highly recommend.

“Fabulous Cottage”
Reviewed 8 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Wonderful cottage in the beautiful setting. Very well equipped, a few minutes walk to a fantastic sandy beach. Great pubs nearby. Dog friendly, great for a romantic break and equally for a Family holiday. Wonderful cottage, we will be back and will be recommending to all we know.

“Superb cottage and location”

person found this review helpful

Having stayed in many self catering cottages over the years, this cottage rates as one of the very best. Very friendly and helpful owners, and their dog. The cottage was comfortable, warm, welcoming and very well equipped. Wonderful secluded garden but also a marvellous sun trap, even in March. Highly recommended, we will be returning.
