  • "Very comfortable and cosy cottage, well decorated with some lovely touches The appliances in the cottage were coming to their end of life and to match the standard of the rest of the cottage should be replaced."

    Unfortunately the broadband failed towards the end of our stay which was a nuscence. Of course this wasn't the fault of the owner. Otherwise a lovely place to stay!

  • "Some of the guides about the property in the folder need updating ie leaflets for using oven etc aren’t in the wardrobe and instructions for rubbish disposal are different ."

    I think dinner plates need replacing to smaller ones that will fit in the slots in the dishwasher

  • "Very clean and homeiy ."

    Roads leading to cottage very narrow and lots of potholes but worthwhile had a problem with the cooker but sorted when we found a piece of paper on how to sort it out A sham it was not left on show by cooker it would have saved a phone call or fix the problem other than that a fantastic place to stay

  • "A lovely property, very homely and well designed."

    We enjoyed our stay immensely. However please can you provide extra household items for future guests. There were only two dishwasher tablets, two bin bags, one hand soap and very little washing up liquid. The dishwasher had also run out of rinse aid and salt which meant it was very ineffective.

    Hi there, our collection of properties are all self-catering so a minimal amount of basic kitchen/cleaning items will be provided. Property Owner

  • "Our cottage itself was generally good - clean and well presented, and we enjoyed our stay - except for the long trip (80 paces) with steps and gravel path to the allotted car parking spaces - this meant that unloading the car (the first part of our holiday!"

    ) was very difficult and physically very demanding for an elderly couple as we are. If we had been told about that - we would not have booked this cottage. Location is good with access to great walks and by car to beaches and a shop for stocking up. The external steps from the first floor living area to the garden are very steep and difficult to use, but being able to open the french doors for fresh air was good. I should think that air conditioning or some fans would be essential if the temperature gets above about 25 degrees C though. The galley kitchen needs a cupboard to store any food which is not in the fridge, because at present you have to use the meagre work surface to store non fridge foods- so then you have hardly any work surface left!. At present there is no cupboard for storing food. The fridge freezer was very good though. It would certainly have helped us if there had been some kind of personal welcome (particularly if they could help us carry our bags etc the 80 paces from the car). And some kind of welcoming gesture when we arrived in the property would have been gratefully appreciated.

  • "Lovely well equipped place perfect for 3."

    Location is extremely quiet. You need to be prepared for small lanes to get to it. You can see the sea from the balcony and the garden catches the sun most of the day. Well positioned to drop into Cornwall or to stay in Devon. Local village of Hartland has some good pubs, tea room and gallery/studios. Coastal path on the doorstop. Owners responsive over queries. High quality bedding and towels.

  • "The cottage was beautiful and absolutely spotless when we arrived."

    It's very well equipped and was nice and cosy when there were gale force winds blowing outside! Perfectly situated for the south west coast path, and an extremely quiet and peaceful spot to relax and unwind.

  • "Lovely to be so close to the coastal path."

    Only downside was the long lengths of single track roads in last few miles to cottage. Often had to reverse a fair way to find a pull in.

  • "Sadly we were text just before checking and told there was no power to the property we delayed checkin and waiting patiently, updates were sporadic and we arrived alongside the electrician who fixed the issue, next thing was no hot water or heating, we text and then called, eventually we had to keep restarting the boiler outside to get hot water (we gave up on heating)."

    Not very restful, rather stressful and wouldn’t hurry back.

    Thank you for your feedback, please accept our sincere apologies. We hope you understand that the issues were unexpected and we made every effort to resolve them and minimise the impact on your stay, especially as you were only there for a short time Property Owner

  • "The cottage is attached and bedrooms are on ground floor with staircase to small living room and kitchen on the first floor."

    Beautiful spot close to coastal path and Clovelly and a little further to Hartland Point. We loved the seaside touches pn the walls and mirrors. Top quality cottage. Outside steps lead down to a sun trap private seating area with table and chairs as well as 3 sun loungers. A lovely little place ideal for a couple and child.

  • "Small but very comfortable, well-equipped cottage."

    Location is quite remote with narrow, single track roads to contend with in the local area. We were lucky with the weather and so had some great walks on the magnificent coast, and great days out visiting Lynton/Lynmouth and RHS Rosemoor.

  • "The detail of the interior design was second to none."

    Everything you needed was thought of including the binoculars and torches. Unfortunately we didn't get to sit in the garden as not warm enough but would love to come back and try again with the weather. I loved the silence of the location and we could even see the sea from the balcony. This accommodation was an absolute delight. Could have lived there. I'll be back for sure.

  • "Cottage in need of a deep clean."

    Whilst bedding ,towels and surfaces were clean, all glass surfaces including mirrors, shower screen and windows were dirty. Cobwebs were prevalent through the cottage, especially around windows. Shower cubicle was unusable because of a blocked drain.Owner and Sykes were contacted..... Sykes returned the call, which was appreciated but in an email, the owner made it clear that he would only be remedying the problem after our departure. Apparently it should have been sorted by the cleaner. Not really 5 Star treatment! With hindsight I should have asked the contact from Sykes to get it resolved instead of just accepting it was going to be out of use for the whole week.

The property

Amid meadows along little lanes 5½ miles from Clovelly is this cottage, one of a group converted from old barns.

Just a field away from the North Devon coast and the South West Coast Path, it is a rural haven for walkers and anyone seeking peace.

On the ground level you will notice the upside down layout when you come across the two bedrooms.

Head on upstairs to your open plan living space, all beautifully stylish with lofty beamed ceiling and light from French windows taking you down steps to the garden.

This is carefully designed accommodation with comfort and chic style.

Sit out in the sunshine in the tidy and private garden to the side of the cottage, complete with table and chairs.

In 100 yards you will find a National Trust footpath leading you to the dramatic coastline.

There are lots of pretty places for you to explore, with the cobbled car-free streets of the ancient harbourside village of Clovelly and striking Hartland.

You can take day trips to Lundy Island from Clovelly, or head to fabulous surf and sand beaches at Westward Ho! and Bude.

The children will love the two family adventure parks with adrenaline boosting rides within ten miles, especially handy if the weather is less than favourable.

Saltwind Granary is an idyll, a haven for peace and discovering the North Devon coastline.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.

About the location


Bucks Cross 4 miles; Bideford 8 miles; Barnstaple 20.4 miles

The picturesque fishing village of Clovelly occupies a secluded, cliffside position and attracts visitors from the world over. A pedestrianised, cobbled street winds its way down the hillside passing the colourful gardens that characterise the village's pretty, whitewashed cottages, on its way down to the sheltered harbour. Local shops, pubs and restaurants crowd the working harbour from where the local fishermen show their daily catch of mackerel and check their lobster pots. Follow the stunning coast over the clifftops toward the romantic Hartland Point, or to the colourful market town of Bideford, with its quaint quay, medieval bridge and vibrant shopping area. Nearby, the famous Westward Ho! provides superb beaches and excellent watersports opportunities, while the Big Sheep Adventure Park will occupy the whole family! A beautiful and inspirational location for a memorable holiday.
