The booking via Sykes was very 'user-friendly', done very easily by helpful and friendly staff, and follow up emails quick and efficient.

Enjoy a stay in the bustling port and market town of Bideford, a
stone's throw from Devon's amazing Atlantic beaches.
Bideford's tree-lined quayside is a wonderful place to
linger, watching cargo ships being loaded and fishermen land their
catch. Or hop on a pleasure boat to Lundy Island.
Mooch about the narrow streets lined with shops, restaurants and
pubs. Fill your Bideford cottage's fridge with local delicacies
at the pannier market and find a keepsake at Butchers' Row,
housing a collection of art and gift shops. Look out for the
merchants' houses on Bridgeland Street and the statue of
Charles Kingsley, the town's famous literary resident.
One of the town's key architectural highlights is the
24-arch Bideford Long Bridge, originally built of oak during
medieval times - learn about its transformation through the ages at
the Burton Art Gallery. And if you fancy a Bideford cottage holiday
over New Year, don't fancy dress and meet fellow partygoers
here at midnight!
During summer, enjoy a tour of the Kathleen & May, a
stunning triple-masted sailing schooner. There's also a visitor
centre displaying memorabilia on Bideford's fascinating
maritime past, as well as a regatta every September.
Get fit on foot or cycle the coastal way and Tarka Trail.
Explore the cobbled streets of Clovelly. Snap up a bargain at
Atlantic Village. Enjoy family fun on the beach at Instow or at the
Sheep attraction. Or ride roller coasters with aliens
at the Milky Way Adventure Park. Non-stop fun guaranteed when you
book a Bideford cottage!
