I felt as though we were driving back in time to a location less frenetic and calming. This superb home from home is in a wonderfully unspoilt area in North Devon;we awoke each morning to the dawn chorus and the sound of cows in the field just over the hedge.
Huw and Sam very quickly made us feel at home and more importantly comfortable.
The food is just great,simple and all locally sourced and cooked really well with a flair that despite the simplicity of the menu was never boring. Thankfully the walking from here is just second to none,do not expect to see too many people if you walk along the coastal path;just sheep and deer !
Oh and I have to mention that chocolate brownie. They are the best, and I`m so pleased that we walked miles otherwise the weight would have piled on.
Just a wonderful place to stay,so hoping to return sometime very soon.
Thankyou so much Huw and Sam
