  • "Little Honeynook is an immaculate and well equipped cottage."

    Very dog friendly, even down to providing feeding bowls and towels. The neat little garden (which is lit up in the evening) is dog secure with sea and countryside views. Ian and Gill are very welcoming hosts. On arrival we enjoyed the cream tea, wine and loaf of bread. A nice little touch was the freshly cut flowers. We would have no hesitation in recommending this beautiful cottage to our friends and family. Best wishes, Sue and Dave Middleton.

  • "If you had 'cottage owner /cottage' of the year, Ian and Gill would certainly be on the shortlist!"

    They had left plenty of treats for our arrival but interestingly, one I really appreciated had cost nothing. There beside the scones was a little card saying 'Welcome John and Liz', also the top sheet of the 'Useful Information' was addressed 'Dear John and Liz'. Just little touches but they expressed Ian and Gill's thoughtfulness which was evident throughout

  • "Little Honeynook was very clean and well appointed with contemporary furniture and having lots of USB charging points."

    Having stayed in many cottages, we came well armed with all the extras (learned from experience) we could need. However, had we turned up without these to Little Honeynook - it would have come up trumps. It had everything we could need. There was also good communication before our visit, such as a direct number for any queries - much appreciated. For us though the major attraction was the location, being so close to Bigbury beach. We also enjoyed a lovely Sunday roast at the dog friendly and welcoming Pickwick Arms, 5 mins walk up the road. We would definitely recommend Little Honeynook, perfect for a couple getaway!

    The bed is so comfortable and Ian and Gill have thought of absolutely everything you may need (and I do mean everything) from beach towels to tupperware so you can take a packed lunch with you on a day out ! The courtyard garden is too cute for words and we loved the hot tub after a long day’s walking. Highly recommended.

  • "Absolutely delightful cottage."

    One of the best we have stayed in. Comfy bed. Comfy furniture. Home from home. Garden wonderful with relaxing chairs and hot tub. A lot of effort has gone into ensuring your stay is nothing short of 10 stars. The welcome pack was amazing. Scones, jam and cream. A bottle of wine and a pint of milk in the fridge. If I could give this cottage 10 stars that would still be short of what it deserves.

    Perfectly fitted out with as many home comforts as you can image - I regularly rent properties and tend to take my own 'household/kitchen essentials' but was pleasantly surprised that all items were already available in abundance - result!
