“All that's required”
Reviewed 30 January 2017 for a stay in January 2017

This little chalet is a great place to get away from the pressures of everyday life. It is wonderfully clean and tidy, well placed for exploring Devon/Cornwall and adjacent to one of the best pubs it has been my privilege to frequent (a bonus for the 'designated' driver).

Even washing the dishes becomes a pleasure as all the local birds flock to the feeders just outside the window.

We can well recommend Little Nod for either a quiet getaway for a couple or as a family base.

Have just returned from a week in the delightful"Little Nod", everything was spotlessly clean, comfortable, with lots of extras that made for a relaxing holiday. The weather became extremely cold during our stay, but the heating was so efficient that we had warm, relaxing, cosy, evenings after our busy days walking, Thank you Sue and Mick for a lovely week. We hope to return again hopefully when the weather is warmer for our Walking

“A really lovely little place to stay in Devon”
Reviewed 9 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

person found this review helpful

We stayed for a week at Little Nod Cottage recently, and had a really lovely time.

It's hard to find places that are dog friendly, and we have 2 dogs with us, so we were pleased that pets were welcomed.

We found when we arrived that Little Nod had more than we imagined. Not only a larger fridge and freezer than I've ever seen in most holiday accommodation that we've used previously, but a microwave, a toaster, and electric kettle besides the hob and oven.

The kitchen cupboards were not only there for storage space, but also contained a wide range of stuff we usually had to bring ourselves - stuff like salt, pepper, tea bags, coffee- much of it was all provided. there were other kitchen gadgets too, besides the ones already mentioned , as well as all the utensils and pots and pans needed for cooking .

The lounge also contained cupboard space - there were toys and games , as well as a whole shelf of DVDs for evenings indoors or rainy days.

Thee were two bedrooms - and although we were just ourselves , there was a second bedroom with two bunk beds for children. The main bedroom was not short of storage space either. the shower in the bathroom was also excellent- the shower head would detach from the wall and had an adjustable head to give you just the sort of shower you wanted. it was very convenient and easy to use.

Situated facing south , Little Nod also had a lawn at the front and had garden / patio furniture that was easy to erect. I got my 4 inch telescope out and had a good look at the Milky Way and the new moon while we were there - away from the city lights and in the clean , fresh sea air, you could see so many stars more clearly - this is definitely a place to go star gazing , even if you are not really into astronomy yourself - the night sky out here is breathtakingly beautiful.

For those who want to get closer to nature in other ways, we found lots of places nearby with spectacular scenery, we also were able to watch wild birds like Goldfinches and pheasants that came right up to the house . The coast also attracted surfers who wanted to ride the wild Atlantic waves as they broke on the shore and whether you interested in the geography and geology of this rugged coastline, or the history of the wrecks and smugglers, or just wanted to look at something straight out of Poldark, this was the place to be. kids would love to look through the rock pools and see all sorts of wildlife. It was more a holiday for walkers, explorers and adventurers, but of you just wanted to lie on a beach somewhere , there was a 3 km stretches golden sand about 7 miles away in Westward Ho! if you got in the car.

There were also woodland walks as well as clifftop paths all within walking distance - and as it's right on the border, we were able to reach many towns in both Devon and Cornwall by car. These included Westward Ho!, Clovelley and Bude, which was quite close and had a decent sized Sainsbury's for our Groceries shopping.

The cottage itself was situated almost right next to a really good pub , the Old Smithy , which is worth a write up in it's own right, it's not just the best pub for miles around, its also one of the best I've ever been to. the pub had a beer garden . two floors so we could take the dogs upstairs to a table out of the way, did cooked meals as well as a wide selection of beers, local and commercial - not to mention ciders as well as wines and spirits. There was a also live music from local bands and a quiz night, too, if you like that sort of thing.
Another interesting local attraction was the Welcombe Pottery.

All in all , it was a really warm welcome we got in Welcombe, and we would recommend this place to anyone.

“Perfect! Home from home”
Reviewed 28 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Perfect little bungalow in a perfect location. Attention to detail was outstanding and the information available in the bungalow made planning our days so easy and being a vegetarian the owners reviews on all local pubs/restautants/cafes helped planning meals out too.
It was clean and comfortable, the flowers and birds were just the icing on the cake.
The pub was beautiful and staff were lovely.
This was our first visit, but so looking forward to planning our next one.

We really enjoyed our stay at The Little Nod, perfect accommodation to explore the area, we thoroughly enjoyed the walks along the coastal path and tamar lake. We were pleased to find maps and local set walks available in The Little Nod. Mick and Sue were extremely friendly and all our needs were catered for. Would certainly visit again in the future and will be recommending to family and friends.
