  • "The property and location were perfect!"

    The condition and cleanliness outstanding! The peace and tranquility was devine! The owners were welcoming. friendly and very accommodating. Our only negative was having to leave and go back home after a ‘much needed’ break. We will be back as soon as we can.

  • "The cottage is in a lovely location and was of a very high standard, it had lovely views, plenty of wildlife and friendly owners, who made us feel most welcome, without being intrusive."

    The hot tub was a bonus, very welcome and soothing after a particularly strenuous walk. There are plenty of walks not far from the cottage and it was lovely to sit out on the verandah after a day out, watching the sun set. The lovely sandy stretch of Woolacombe Beach is just a short ride away, and the surrounding countryside was breathtaking. A very relaxing and enjoyable break. We would stay here again at the drop of a hat, Thank you

    The outside patio is lovely to sit outside for meals if the weather permits.The only negative for us was we took our bikes but the roads are not suitable very narrow only wide enough for a car, and pray no one is coming the other way.The lady who who owned it was very nice.

  • "Felt very comfortable at Owl's Roost."

    The hot tub was the perfect temperature and a real hit for our girls. Although the weather didn't permit us to go our and about much, this was no problem as Owl's Roost is the perfect setting cor a cosy night in with extra heaters in the dining room and sitting room. The bathrooms were nicely decorated and spotlessly clean! Normally I take disinfectant wipes to wipe over the surfaces etc but really didn't have the need as this place was so clean. One thing which surprised me was that the Guest Book dated back to 1979! The owners are obviously dab-hands at what they do! I will highly recommend this place to my friends and family.
