“Very clean, spacious and well equipped accommodation in a very quiet location.”
Despite the warm weather, the rooms were cool - no doubt thanks to the very thick stone walls!!! The beds were very comfortable too. I'd highly recommend staying here.
Despite the warm weather, the rooms were cool - no doubt thanks to the very thick stone walls!!! The beds were very comfortable too. I'd highly recommend staying here. The only negative thing is that the 'enclosed garden' isn't secure. Our dog escaped a few times and had to be kept on a lead all week. Next door's dog also nipped through the hedge and used our garden as a toilet.
“Cottage was as stated, was very pleasant comfortable and owners were very helpful.”
The only extra that I would like would be a sharp knife, as using a glass block will blunt sharp knives very quickly, so could we please either a sharp knife or a wooden/plastic block. Would like to book again for later in the year when I have arranged time.
“The Croft was excellent.”
It’s location for exploring the area was ideal. We had our dog with us and having a totally secure garden and exercise field allowed him freedom. The owners welcome scones, jam and cream didn’t last long! We would definitely stay again.
“All our experiences in the past have been very good with Sykes so we expected it to be good and it was.”
Hence you met our expectations. Perhaps a re think of the question above is needed.
The owners could consider putting some children's outdoor play such as a swing/slide in the field. This is just a suggestion - the lack of this wasn't a problem for us.

About the location
Bude 10 miles; Barnstaple 25 miles.
The ancient market town of Holsworthy lies nestled amid the rolling green hills of Tarka Country. There are many different landscapes within the region, from rugged cliffs and sandy beaches to rolling farmland and lush valleys. Holsworthy has much to offer, including a swimming pool, tennis court and splendid park with bowling green. The town centre boasts a varied selection of traditional shops, pubs and cafés, based around the market square. There is an 18-hole golf course just outside the town, while the local area is rich with opportunities for fishing, sailing, cycling and walking. The sandy beaches at Bude are within easy reach, while further afield visitors can explore the changing face of the South West Coastal Path, dramatic Exmoor and Dartmoor, and unspoilt Bodmin Moor, or simply relax in the quiet countryside that typifies North Devon.
