“Beautiful house in very picturesque location”
Reviewed 9 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Just returned from a week's stay in Cromlech House with my husband, some friends and our dog. The house has four good sized bedrooms, a lounge with adequate seating for the number staying and an extremely well equipped kitchen the focus of which is the huge table. We found the property clean on arrival and having been given comprehensive pre-arrival email information from the owner we knew what to expect to find and what to pack. The location in Mortehoe suited us perfectly. It is a very pretty, unspoilt village and just across the road was what we referred to as the "extension" i.e. the Chichester pub which catered well in terms of range of drinks and food (several veggie options). A short walk down the hill and we were in Woolacombe which had a superb, dog friendly beach. We spent much time walking and picked up the South West Coast path most days and enjoyed the weather and the views hiking to Baggy Point in one direction and Bull Point in the other. There was so much to keep us occupied locally that we only ventured out in the car once - a change of pub scene to the Thatch in Croyde followed by a walk along the beach at Staunton Sands. Again, both are recommended.
We loved Cromlech house and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it as a superb location to base a get together with friends.

“Lovely house; lovely spot”
Reviewed 10 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We'd never been to Mortehoe before, so didn't know what to expect from the area. But it's great, and so is the house: full of character, spacious, comfortable, lovely views from the bedrooms - sheep on the hill at the back, and the sea from the front. We met up with other friends there, so the large family kitchen was perfect for our meals together. Excellent cliff walks, and in the evening there was the beautiful sight of the sun going down behind distant Lundy Island. Only parking for one car at the property, but the local pay-and-display carpark was so cheap that didn't matter.

We spent five days here (us, kids, and grandchildren) last week, and found the spotlessly clean and beautiful house a great place to spend time. The village is charming, with unspoilt Woolacombe beach just down the road. The house had a homely feel, we would have liked to stayed longer! The owners could not have been more helpful, and responded very promptly to any contact.

“Lovely house in a great location”
Reviewed 28 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We (four adults and our dog) stayed at Cromlech House for three nights recently and it was perfect in every way. The owner was very helpful and informative, the house is well kept and spacious, Mortehoe is idyllic with a great pub across the road, which does good food as well as the shop, lovely cream tea and great fish and chips just down the road. We enjoyed our long walks with stunning views, which are on the door step as well as nice days out in Woolacombe, Lynton and Lynmouth and Saunton sands. If we do plan another break in North Devon, it will be Mortehoe and Cromlech House!

“fantastically equipped and really conveniently village central.”
Reviewed 13 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

This is a beautifully restored and really well equipped house right in the centre of the village of Mortehoe --directly opposite (20 yards !) from our Favourite Pub --The Chichester which does excellent meals and great ales and wines. It is quite clear that a great deal of thought has gone into the restoration and fitting out of the house. We are keen cooks and everything we could possibly need was there---and it was all very high quality , even down to a stainless steel cafetiere ! --stops breaking glass ones ! We have been holidaying in the area for some 25 years and know the area well, so we were absolutely delighted to come across this really comfortable house. Loads of books to read --you'd need to be there for years to read them all! Beds were very comfortable. There is parking on the front of the house and the owner arranges parking in the local car park for other vehicles Easy to unload straight into the front door. We really look forward to making a return visit. Easy access ( driving) to some marvellous beaches and lots of excellent national Trust walks ---virtually straight out of the front door !

“Best rental house I have ever stayed in”

We came for a few days after New Year with children and friends. It's an unpredictable time of year for a seaside holiday - and Cromlech was perfect. Warm, comfortable, ideal for blustery walks and beach trips, and even better to come home to. It doesn't feel like a house that's made for the summer only. It's very spacious and stylish and elegant, but with none of the preciousness that that often entails. We loved the fact that each one of the rooms was big and light - have often found with large groups that someone gets the poky or dark room. Pretty much everything we needed was there - from the soup whizzer to the huge array of reading, the unbelievably comfortable beds and the kitchen clothes drier. We were cooking large, sometimes complicated meals, and the kitchen was very well equipped, and great to hang out in. There was something for everyone - playground for the kids, pub across the road, miles of cliff top walking and waves to watch or jump in. We would love to come back.
