  • "When we arrived at Ridge Cottage the owners had left us lovely cake and biscuits which was a really nice touch."

    Ridge Cottage was very clean and the bed was sooo comfortable. Great facilities, everything was thought about. So quiet at night which was great for a good night’s sleep. It’s in an excellent location as it’s central to a lot of beauty spots. We had lots of fantastic walks with my dog, all within easy reach of the cottage.

    Thanks for your feedback Harriet. Glad to hear Brillo had fun on the walks too. Do come again. Property Owner

  • "We had everything we needed."

    The directions to the cottage were clear, parking (for one car) was close and easy. Sharon ( owner) warned us about the water pressure and Internet - we found the water pressure was fine for showering, WiFi in main rooms was fine apart from high def streaming (no issues with iPlayer). The beds were comfortable and the nature of the house meant that we had no trouble sleeping on the warmest day of the year. Clean, convenient and welcoming - this was perfect for us. Make sure you go outside on clear nights because there is almost no light pollution.

    Thanks for choosing us and we'd be delighted to see you again. Best Wishes. Property Owner

    . tastefully decorated , well equipped and very comfortable …..( also spotlessly clean ) . It was situated with easy access to the resorts of North Devon , our favourite being Lynton / Lynmouth . An ideal holiday cottage for pet owners with a small enclosed front garden and an adjacent field with a pathway all round ideal to exercise the dog .

Boasting original beams and characterful features throughout, a woodburning stove and well-equipped with all the self-catering essentials, Ridge Cottage welcomes four guests and their four-legged friend.

Cross the threshold into a spacious kitchen/diner and allow the designated chef of the group to become acquainted with a range of appliances before rustling up a tasty feast; settle down at the dining table to enjoy supper over a bottle of wine, as the warming woodburning stove crackles away alongside you.

If the weather permits, why not make use of the neat, enclosed garden and indulge in an afternoon tipple alfresco-style, planning for the days ahead with pretty landscape as your backdrop.

When the stars appear, ascend the staircase to a first-floor sitting room and curl up in front of the Smart TV, ready to savour some light entertainment with your loved ones close.

Wash away the day in the ground-floor bathroom and complete your evening routine before retiring to one of two lovely ground-floor bedrooms including a king-size and a twin.
