We stayed here for a week with our 2 dogs and fell in love with the area. The cottage was a great base and you could enjoy stunning views of the sea from the lounge or outside on a mild morning.
The cottage is comfortable,clean and well equipped but not suitable, as the description makes clear, for anyone with limited mobility as it is perched up on the hill well away from the road.
It was great to do circular walks from the door either down onto the beach and marshes or up into the hills via one of the wooded, watery combes.
The village was just down the road, very friendly with butcher and supermarkets, and we had great beer and food at The Top Ship and a smashing cream tea at The Whortleberry Tea Room. In February many places are closed but this means all the roads are also quiet and it is easy to get about.
Would recommend out of season for a peaceful get away.
We had a lovely stay at Halsecombe Cottage. Little touches like the tea and milk on arrival, and a pre-packed-just-ready-to-be-lit fire made us feel immediately welcome.
This is like a home away from home and a great base from which to explore Somerset and North Devon. The cottage was clean and tidy and the underfloor heating in the bathroom was a luxury.
We appreciated the high ceilings and my tall hubby had no problems hitting his head as is the case with so many other cottages. The recent addition of WiFi was an added bonus and made planning our days out easy and problem-free. The views are absolutely stunning. And as if that is not enough to look at, there are bird feeders in the garden which attract lovely little birdies to watch.
And the best part? It is dog-friendly, which means we could take Homer, our four-legged friend, with us. A delightful stay in a delightful cottage located in a delightful setting.
