We loved our stay at the Cromlech House. The house is spacious and comfortable with the most beautiful sunlight and location. We could walk to the beach, with all amenities nearby.

* 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!
