  • "We are two old dears with two bikes."

    Nothing was too much trouble. We were allowed to leave our bikes in the garage and given a key for access. The cottage was spotless and the view fantastic. The weather was good too although I guess the owners can't take credit for that. Everything we needed was to hand and clear instructions left in the lounge. I am pleased to report that the 1000 piece motor vehicle jigsaw is intact with no missing pieces, although it did take rather a long time to do. Thank you for a wonderful week. Paul and Chris.

    Only drawback, never did manage to connect to wifi!

    Sorry our guest had a problem but since seeing the review the Wi-Fi has been checked and no problem found so suspect user error, this could have been remedied if we were asked to assist. Property Owner

  • "We had a fantastic week at Lundy View cottage."

    Lovely cottage well equipped and amazing views and setting. Phil and Ann very welcoming. It was a fantastic base to explore the surrounding areas and also just for a chill out day in the garden. Would definitely recommend staying here.

  • "As we are two friends in our mid/late seventies we felt that as neither the shower or bath had non slip services then nonslip mats should have been provided."

    Also, I was unable to use the bath, as there was not a holding rail on either the bath or wall, with lower back problems I would have been unable to get out of the bath. A mirror in the twin room would have been a good facility and we didn't see either a fire extinguisher or fire blanket. But we enjoyed our stay and the facilities around the area. Many thanks We

    The cottage has everything you require. Comfortable settees and beds, a cooker that’s easy to use with all utensils, nice bathrooms with hot water. The views are spectacular from watching the sheep in the field to the horizon some 20 miles away. If you require peace and quiet and just relax then this for you. Thank you Phil and Anne.

    The cottage had wonderful views that we could enjoy because of the upside down arrangement. We were able to prepare all the meals we wanted in the well equipped kitchen. The bedroom accommodation was comfortable and the en-suite and bathroom clean with plenty of hot water.

  • "An absolutely beautiful cottage."

    This cottage is absolutely stunning. The owners provided everything needed for a relaxing holiday. It was spotlessly clean, and the beds were comfortable. The cottage was more than I had hoped for and it truly is rural giving lots of peace and quiet. The views from the upside down living area give wonderful views across the countryside. It is perfectly located to travel, the beaches at Croyde or Woolacombe not to far away, and plenty of local walks too to see the stunning scenery. Every effort was made to ensure we had all we needed. I would recommend this cottage to all unreservedly.

  • "We had the pleasure of staying for a week at Lundy View Cottage in mid May this year."

    The cottage is located just north of Torrington and has wonderful views over gently rolling countryside with sheep and lambs in the field beyond the cottage. Lundy view is very clean and well appointed with everything you are likely to need together with many extras such as DVDs, books and games. The owners, Phil and Ann, are very friendly and helpful and added to the overall experience. There is plenty to see and do in the area and we would heartily recommend this holiday cottage to anyone who wishes to visit North Devon. Thank you Phil and Ann. Mo & Peter, May 2021

  • "This cottage is situated in the heart of the North Devon countryside."

    Located on a single track lane a few miles outside Torrington this upside down accommodation has beautiful views over the surrounding fields and hills but is only a short drive from key points of interest with Bideford, Instow, Appledore, Barnstaple, Ilfracombe and the beaches of Staunton, Croyde, Woolacombe etc. within easy driving distance. Ideal for a quiet, relaxing break. The accommodation was spotlessly clean and maintained to a high standard. Very comfortable. It would have benefitted from handgrips in the bathroom as the shower was positioned over a wide, deep bath which would be challenging for the less agile. The water was slow to drain so it was quite slippy when trying to step out of the bath. Some decent hangers in the wardrobes rather than the limited number of mismatched plastic ones would also be good. If you are looking for a tranquil stay in a quiet and peaceful location this is the place for you.

A good position to get to the north coast of Devon and Dartmoor and the south coast is only a half hour drive away. The factory and shop of Dartington glassware is on the way down to Torrington, just 10 minutes away. the only reason for saying that we would not choose to rebook is that we always plan to visit a different area but we have recommended it to family and friends.
