Silver Cottage envelopes you from the minute you arrive on the windy hill leading up to the most charming cottage and garden. Matt, Sophie and the children could not be a more enamouring family, and made us feel so very welcome.

The cottage itself has two bedrooms, a bathroom, and a living room with a diddy kitchenette. The self-contained nature of the cottage is what drew us to Braunton. When you have children, you do not want to be wasting precious holiday time watching them sleep! Silver Cottage provides you the space to go relax in your own space without worrying about wee ones. The surrounding area has plenty to do for small children- you will most definitely not be bored! The coastline is one of the most incredible in the UK.

The beds and pillows are comfy, with high quality linen. Lots of little details are thought about, and this is what makes the stay so exceptional. Nice toiletries, tea and coffee on the shelves, and little treats (kitkats, I'm looking at you!). The breakfasts are fresh (eggs from the garden), and incredibly tasty. The slow cooked tomatoes are now something that I have to strive to replicate!

However, it is the warmness of the hosts that makes this place special. The optional evening meals that Sophie rustles up are restaurant standard, whilst being shrugged off as 'just home cooking'. The warm and cheery welcome at breakfast, and the well thought out itinerary suggestions surpassed our expectations. We were made to feel like family, and had one of our most enjoyable breaks!

So, to summarise, Ambrosia- you don't deserve to own the title of Devon Dream- hand it over to Sophie and Matt, putting the Brilliant and Bedazzling into B & B!

Matt & Sophie, you have been warned- we will be back!

Sophie has to be the loveliest B+B landlady there is!
Silver cottage is beautifully decorated, the breakfast is incredible (think homemade jams, freshly laid eggs, homemade bread etc etc) and NOTHING is too much trouble.
Sophie obviously enjoys what she does and her family are all so welcoming, including her mum.
There are 2 double rooms with a shared shower room. Our room and the shower room were small but this did not detract from our visit at all, there is even a guest sitting room with a little kitchenette.The rooms are immaculately clean and comfortable.
I can't recommend Silver Cottage highly enough.

We have just returned from the most perfect break in the most perfect place. Silver Cottage is outstanding - beautiful surroundings and perfect accommodation. Spotlessly clean, crisp white bedlinen and a breakfast to die for! Sophie and Matt made us so welcome - we will most definitely be coming back!

Silver Cottage puts the A&A into B&B. From the cooing white doves in the dovecote to the crisp white linen in the bedrooms, from the warm friendliness of Matt and Sophie to the convenience of having one's own sitting room/kitchenette: it's just lovely. You'd be mad to go anywhere else.

Room Tip: Both rooms are lovely, with peaceful views over the garden.
