  • "Lovely cottage with plenty of outdoor/indoor space for doggies and child, the cottage was spotless and tidy."

    Pool table was a nice touch when the little on is down for the night. Will definitely recommend!

  • "Spacious, well equipped and everything good quality with comfortable beds."

    The location is good for exploring North Devon and only five miles from Westward Ho, a beautiful beach and nice seaside town. The House had been made welcome for us with Christmas Tree (Christmas Week booking). The owners were very helpful and friendly.

  • "Lovely cottage with ample space, very well equipped kitchen and comfy beds."

    Nice jacuzzi surrounded by smaller buildings so even in windy condition you can enjoy it. Pool table is a nice addition and keeps everybody busy even in bad weather. Cottage is away from the city in quiet location but still only 5 minutes from shops so great. We enjoyed our stay there very much

  • "We had a wonderful time in this cottage with our 2 dogs."

    It was really home from home and fully equipped with everything you could want. The hot tub was great and the dogs enjoyed all the outdoor space. We would definitely recommend.

  • "This is a beautiful and comfortable property."

    We spent a delightful week and enjoyed the peace, the views and the hot tub. It is well located for visiting the beach at Northam Burrows and other popular tourist spots such as Rosemoor (RHS), Hartland Point, Bideford, The Tarka Trail and others. The house is spacious and well equipped. My only criticism is that, despite the sloped access to the front door, inside the house there were several deep steps from the hallway to the dining room and from the dining room to the kitchen. My mother is now elderly and disabled. She uses a stick in the house and a mobility scooter when out and about. The bedroom and bathroom on the ground floor and same level were great, but the steps were a persistent problem. I noticed a recent previous guest reviewed with the same point.

  • "A pleasant cottage in a quiet location but close to amenities in Bideford."

    Lots of steps internally mean it would be a challenge for someone with mobility issues. Stairs to upstairs are also very steep. A problem with the electrics was promptly dealt with by the owner. We also pointed out the lack of a shower mat which made the shower lethal & she promised to rectify for the next guests. The inside of the property was spotless but the outside decking areas were a bit grubby. The dog really enjoyed it & the garden was secure- though a large dog might jump the fences! Mine tried… overall we had a nice break.

    Thank you for taking the time to give us feedback. We are sorry you had a problem with the electrics. We identified it was a problem with the tumble drier and we can confirm that we now have a new one. We agree that the multi level and steep steps and stairs could cause issues to anyone with limited mobility and our property description does highlight multiple levels. The cottage is however very old, full of character and built at a time when accessibility wasn't a consideration. We have also taken on board your comments about the shower mat, the first time this issue has been raised since the cottage became available for holidays in 2018 and one is now provided. Finally, the decking is 5 years old. It is regularly powerwashed and treated but being a natural material rather than manmade it is impossible to make it look like new. Property Owner

  • "Everything we expected and more was at the cottage which was absolutely lovely , inside was spacious and comfortable and the outside gardens were lovely with great views ."

    The back garden quickly became our favourite area to just sit , relax and enjoy the vista. The local pub is a 15 minute walk anywhere else is a short drive . If your looking for a change of pace and a quiet break this is the place.

    We are so pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay. Thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback. It is greatly appreciated. Property Owner

  • "Had a great stay at littleham court cottage."

    There were no unexpected surprises, everything was as we thought it would be once we had made our booking. Waking up to the sound of the lambs in a morning was an added bonus. Good location to explore North Devon especially with 3 dogs who love a run on the beach. For anyone who needs electric hook up, we found a fast charge at the petrol station near Aldi/Asda.

    Thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback. We are pleased you enjoyed your holiday. Property Owner

    We had everything we needed and it was a nice surprise to have milk in the fridge and coffee and tea so we could put on a brew as soon as we arrived as well as the rolls and bread and biscuits as a welcome treat. We enjoyed watching the sheep and lambs in the fields and a nice hot soak in the hot tub even on the cooler days.
