* Great houses - both looked lovely, we're pristinely clean and well equipped
* Great location - just up the road from Woolacombe in the beautiful village of Moretoe. The village is small and quaint but has a lovely local pub, little tea room and shop very close by
* Great service - David was very responsive and incredibly helpful throughout the process.
I would definitely come again!

"Two properties together, the perfect way to enjoy a large family holiday!"
It was clear that the holiday would go well as we were told absolutely everything we needed to know about the property by Dominic who was so attentive before, during and after the stay, right down to sorting out parking permits and sending us a book on the beach for the children before our arrival.Great pair of houses which gave loads of sleeping and living space but a kitchen big enough for 12 of us to eat in comfortably as we tended to spend time more in one house than another.Both houses lovely. Excellent to have a landline to use as the mobile reception is dodgy and the wifi meant that we could all keep up to date with emails on the ipads.Really to be recommended.

Our group consisted of 12 couples and 14 children, both the buttery and cromlech house were perfect for us. Extremely high quality accommodation was coupled with great communication with the owner. Mortehoe is a truly beautiful place and one which I would very much love to visit again. I would thoroughly recommend this property to others. Simply fantastic!
Clarification: the group consisted of 12 adults and 14 children, not 12 couples and 14 children! The Crescent (The Buttery plus Cromlech House) has 9 bedrooms. :) dom
