Week St Mary is cosy and beautifully presented. The coastal and countryside walks are stunning but most of all the warm welcome made our stay very special
29 Mar 2013
We were welcomed by a lovely Devon cream tea after a long journey, which was great... The one-bedroom cottage was beautifully and professionally presented and has a superb view. Everything has very clear instructions, which is gratifying. It was very cosy and warm, with every facility we needed. We also loved the courtyard and spacious garden - and enjoyed hours on the wooden swing. This is an excellent location for long walks over the hils and to the sea. Seldon's hospitality was warm and helpful. Highly recommended. We'd certainly come again...

Our second stay at Sothole in the Week St.Mary Barn. Southole is an excellent base for walking parts of the coastal path and although it's very quiet and peaceful it isn't far to Bude or Bideford if towns interests you more. Seldon always provides a warm welcome, is on hand if you need advice, and the accommodation is spotless and very comfortable
