  • "We have used Sykes for years and have to say this is the first disappointment we have had."

    The cottage was lovely and spacious and what we expected the disappointment was the Garden not really dog friendly one of the main reasons we booked this cottage was weather permitting we could relax and enjoy time in the garden with our dog. Unfortunately the garden is overgrown with foliage which really needs to be cut back, around the garden were various gaps which had been blocked off by bits of wood chairs and on the right near the gate is a trough (which we were made aware of by a previous guest in the visitors book) which is stagnant and not very nice they had put a chair over it but our dog or even a child could have landed in it, had we not known. My wife slipped on the path made of bits of slate and cut her leg when she landed on the decking we could not find a First Aid Box. We just think the issues above could be sorted out in no time therefore making the whole experience up to the standard we have always experienced with Sykes Cottages Dog Friendly Holidays.

  • "We were under the impression that there was parking for one car."

    Although this is true that one spot is owned by a resident as its in their garden. We had a disabled person who can walk but not too far. The pub car park was only a 1 min walk but we feel this should be clearly stated in the write up as the walk is up quite a steep hill.

  • "Very happy with this little cottage."

    The hill to the house is very steep. This is highlighted in the description though. Reccomends not suitable for disabled maybe also the very young. We took our 2 year old who struggled to walk it so needed to be carried or pushed up in pram, both nearly killed me the first 2 days ha ha. A drive would be brilliant but when u see the property you can understand why they don't have a driveway. However hill aside, everything was brilliant. Even had a washing machine which was brill especially having kids and the beach, it's needed!! I would recommend maybe adding a dryer just to go hand in hand with the washer. We found we had the heating on quite a bit just to dry the clothes but was too warm to really have the heating on. But I would come back. Perfect for a nice romantic get away. Brilliant 5 stars

  • "Lovely cottage and an ideal location so close to a beach, however I think that it's a must that this cottage should clearly set out access issues."

    You really can't drive up to the cottage and it is up a very very steep hill. My mother accompanied us on this holiday and she is 71, but very fit exercising every day, however the hill up to the cottage was really too much for her. It is fantastic that they organise a parking space at the pub and a trolley to assist with moving bags but this very steep slope really would mean that a lot of people just wouldn't manage it and it wouldn't just be mobility issues. We organised a good delivery for when we got to the cottage and the delivery guy also really struggled.

  • "Loved Wringers Meadow."

    Made a few suggestions for improvement but only small things such as an ironing board, stair gate and curtain / door to ensuite. Location good in Combe Martin made it easy to access N Devon. Thank you for a lovely stay, despite the Mixed English weather.

The property

A pretty end-terrace cottage, tucked away at the end of a lane in a south-facing position in the coastal village of Combe Martin, North Devon.

Blending modern design with older character features this spacious cottage is ideal for families with pets and is a 15-minute stroll from the beach.

The long sitting room has bi-fold doors out to the sunny patio, plus a woodburner, perfect for family gatherings chatting by the fireside.

The separate dining room has an attractive slate floor and stairs up to the first floor.

There is a well-fitted kitchen at the rear, with a useful breakfast bar.

Upstairs there are three bedrooms, one en-suite, and two with lovely views across to Ridge Hill.

The south-facing garden has a long lawn ideal for children to play plus a raised decked patio in front of the living room, a private space for barbeques and relaxing.

A short walk from the cottage is the award-winning Combe Martin Beach plus the coastal path, providing walks and activities amongst some breathtaking scenery.

The village has plenty of gift shops, beach shops, cafes and pubs.

Nearby, why not visit the Dinosaur Park or Watermouth Castle or take a wildlife and coastal cruise from Ilfracombe?

This delightful cottage provides a great seaside location where there is plenty to occupy the family, come rain or shine.
