    “Wonderful comfortable cottage”

    Visited over New Year. Photo's on this site show cottage exactly as it is. Nice spacious cottage. Access is via a steep hill and steps up to cottage, this didn't cause us any issues although I didn't like driving up there as quite narrow lane! There is good parking available for two cars. Bedrooms are all a good size and beds were really comfortable with lovely memory foam mattresses. As well as the main bathroom with over bath shower there is another separate toilet. ...

    Visited over New Year. Photo's on this site show cottage exactly as it is. Nice spacious cottage. Access is via a steep hill and steps up to cottage, this didn't cause us any issues although I didn't like driving up there as quite narrow lane! There is good parking available for two cars. Bedrooms are all a good size and beds were really comfortable with lovely memory foam mattresses. As well as the main bathroom with over bath shower there is another separate toilet. It was too warm over our visit to make use of the wood burner, even though it was a winter visit we did enjoy sitting out on the seating outside the cottage and the garden seating area would be great in summer I'm sure. Liked having two living room areas, this would be good for a large family group. There are a lot of books, DVD's and games available for you to use. There is a nice large dining table which was good for jigsaws/games as well as eating. WiFi service is good. It is a short walk to the village although during our visit a lot of the cafe's were shut, the Post Office did a take away chinese option and we got take away pizza from The Dolphin pub. Would also recommend the Pack of Cards pub at top end of village. The cottage is in a great position for walking with easy access to the coastal walks, all the walks in this area are fairly steep, we enjoyed a walk to Ilfracombe and to great hangman for fabulous views. There is also a nice pub a little outside of Combe Martin at Berrynarbor, we walked there for Sunday lunch which was really good. Really enjoyed our visit and hope to go again.
