  • "We really enjoyed our st."

    Ay. The cottage was very close to good dog walking areas and the property had everything we needed for a great holiday. The owner, Jane, was friendly and helpful when we arrived and the neighbours too. I’d strongly recommend Comb Martin as a centre for exploring this beautiful and dramatic coast.

    Thank you Maurice I’m glad you both enjoyed your stay It was lovely meeting you both I look forward to seeing you both in the near future Kind regards Jane Property Owner

  • "The instructions for using the oven need to be a little clearer, we tried a few times what was written in the welcome book but could not make it work, so we gave up."

    Could not get the Netfilx to work, not that we overly needed it, but it would have been nice. We did contact the owner but had no phone signal in the property she could not get hold of us, maybe a signal booster inside may be a good idea. A number of the light bulbs were out, at what we paid for a week away i would expect things to have been checked. The double jacuzzi bath is a nice touch, although it takes a while to fill, the shower hose is still held together with tape, which i noticed in a previous feedback. All in all we really enjoyed our stay, very comfortable. just a few little things that could do with being sorted

  • "Really lovely place, very clean got everything you need, even a vase of flowers on the table which we thought was lovely thing to do, local to shops and couple of pubs but you do need to go down a little hill its not bad and you and look at amazing view of sea while having 5 mins seating about, coombe martin is such a lovely place to see, the owner sometimrs about as joined to her house she is lovely and very helpful same as the locals there."

    Only thing we will say the settee is very low to floor so if you struggling with back or knees then be best using the arm chair. You wont regret staying there its 5 mins from beach for dogs too.

  • "The pictures do not do this place justice."

    Beautiful little cottage in a good location in walking distance to the town. Everything you need and more in the cottage. Bed very comfortable and sofa to sink into. Very clean on arrival. Jane was very helpful when we wanted some help with places to go and things to do. Will defiantly be staying here again!

  • "Holiday was great."

    Accommodation was good, although parking was tight. Unfortunately the lack of bath and shower let the place down. A jacoozi is not appropriate for two 75 year olds. Jayne was very friendly and helpful, and the accommodation was very dog friendly whilst remaining extremely comfortable.

  • "A lovely cosy cottage, very quite off the main road, there is no garden ."

    .not a problem for me but if you have a dog you will need to keep it on a lead. no ice-maker BUT there IS a freezer. Bath a challenge if you only want a shower but can be done with care. WiFi good. I enjoyed my week here very much, just wish the MET office could get their forecast right ! Lovely area.

  • "The kitchen was poorly equipped."

    No serving spoons. cutlery thrown in the drawer. The cups has stain spots and we could not remove them. Also when water was tipped down the sink, it glugged for a while and then there was a slight odour of bad eggs. Think it needs some drain clear. I doubt the owner is aware of this. We had to have help sorting our the underfloor heating. One switch was in a cupboard that had no handle. We thought there was a shower not just the jacuzzi. Our fault we know. Never assume!! But it was difficult to crouch down in the jacuzzi to have a shower, using the hose which had a temporary repair. The photo, showed a private courtyard, but from the Coach house you looked out onto other parked cars and the side road and when you were sitting inside you felt you were in a goldfish bowl as everyone could see right into the room. My last comment is a personal one, but the bedding had been washed in very strong smelling detergent - fabric conditioner and it was so over powering it made us sneeze. Fortunately there were spare pillow cases, so we covered 2 cushions and used these instead. The smell was very strong. This is the first time I have ever written an adverse comment, but feel I should.

  • "We loved how close the cottage was to Combe Martin village, just a short stroll to the beach and high street."

    We did experience a problem with the Jacuzzi bath as the shower didnt work, we reported the problem to the owner who was really helpful and asked a local plumber to fix it but the job needed to be done after our departure date. The fridge doesnt have a freezer box so we couldnt use our cool box for days on the beach, there is a ice maker but couldnt get it to work. Just a few other minor comments; the spiral staircase is a nice feature but would be a bit tricky for a disabled person; we noticed a few cob-webs on the windows and the kitchen utensils were a tad sparse. Otherwise we had a great time and will probably book this place again.

  • "Disappointed there was no garden for the dog."

    For our age the stairs were a bit of a challenge. Also found dirty tissue in the bathroom and a slither of glass on the rug near the kitchen sink. But overall it was in a lovely area and central to many of the places we wanted to visit
