"Gorgeous Cottage - Great Location"
We're just back from a fabulous fortnight in North Devon. We stayed at Stanbury's Cottage and couldn't have been happier. The cottage itself is idyllic with its thatched roof and four excellent sized bedrooms. It's just a few minutes for some of the finest sandy beaches I've seen - Croyde (take your National Trust card and car sticker as you can park there for free!), Saunton sands and Wollacombe. They also have fantastic rock pools, so much fun to be had for the children.
The house owners are really lovely and were very keen to ensure that we had everything we needed. The house itself was absolutely spotless and plenty of towels and bedding were provided.
My advice is to keep your money in the UK and holiday in Devon. This cottage is the perfect place to stay.
We are so pleased that our guests loved the cottage and had a great holiday.
We really try to ensure that our guests enjoy their stay, as holidays are so important.
