“Perfect for a family”
Reviewed 1 August 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Our second family holiday in Bramble and Meadow cottages in a lovely location. Having exclusive use of the swimming pool is perfect for a family, as is the nearby fishing lake. The accommodations are well equipped and the owners, Sophia and Roy, very friendly and helpful. We recommend Browns Delicatessen in Torrington for lunch and Clovelly for a lovely day out. A perfect holiday.

“Relaxing and stunning location”
Reviewed 12 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Couldn't have asked for better accommodation. Secure and decent sized garden for our dogs and stunning views all around. Swimming pool was great and fishing excellent. Woodland walk around the farm was fun and the farm was close enough to shops etc. Very private cottage and very welcoming owners.
Can't wait to book for next year

“Lovely peaceful location”
Reviewed 11 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

This is a lovely peaceful location and the owners are very welcoming and helpful. There are only a couple of comments we would like to make, which we intend to be constructive. We feel some of the kitchen equipment needs to be replaced, in particular the pans. There are plenty but most have seen better days. My other criticism is regarding the bedding. The pillows and duvet are very badly stained and the bedding, although clean, looked very dingy. If a little bit of money was spent on improving these it would make all the difference. That aside, this really is a super place and perfect for relaxing........

“Lovely relaxing stay in gorgeous Devon countryside”
Reviewed 9 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

This is the second time we've been to Sophia and Roy's lovely cottage and we'll certainly be back. Excellent, clean cottage in gorgeous surroundings and Sophia and Roy are always welcoming. They encouraged us to make ourselves at home and use all the facilities including the pool and woodland walk. Sophia even showed us a newly born lamb and allowed my son to say hello to the little lambs and look at the tractor! He loved it at the cottage as many animals mooch around and he had lots of space to play. He also loved the slide!

Me and my husband loved the relaxing environment and are looking forward to returning again soon.

“Perfect for a family holiday”

We booked both Bramble and Meadow cottages for a family holiday that included two fishermen and four children, there is something for everyone. Both accommodations are spacious and very well equipped, the swimming pool is wonderful and the fishing very good. The fishing lake is fenced and gated and the fish are in good condition, fighting above their weight. Fish caught included common and ghost carp, tench and roach. Once away from the very narrow lanes there are many places within easy distance to visit, Bideford and Appledore being particularly picturesque. The owners Sophia and Roy were extremely friendly and helpful. We would highly recommend both accommodations as being perfect for a family holiday and will certainly revisit in the future.
