"Lovely house, great position, lovely walks to Morte Point, great surfing beaches nearby."
The house is ideally located up in the village of Mortehoe. Views across fields of sheep at the back. You can walk along the cliff tops and if you are lucky you can see seals down below. There is a choice of good surfing beaches nearby, Woolacombe, Croyde and many other smaller bays (which are my preference)
There is plenty of room in the house which has been refurbished maximising light and space. There is a large kitchen with a large dining table which makes for fun meal times.

"Heavenly outdoors holiday location"
We have just returned from this great house in Morteho, having spent 2 weeks there with friends and young children.
The location is unbeatable, with the surfing beaches a fantastic walk down a scenic path with incredible views across the north Devon coast.
We had 3 spectacularly beautiful beaches to choose from for crabbing, sandcastle building, surfing and boogie boarding...etc.....It was perfect!
Our kids have rated this their favourite holiday so far ! Beating holidays in Greece and Ile De Re hands down...and we would consider it up there with the best.
The house is lovely and spacious, very comfortable and well equipped.
Only downside is the lack of outside space, which is why i am not scoring 5 stars, but really this is harsh as the house is perfect in every other way, and the location more than made up for this, as we spent the entire day out in the great outdoors, and the house is right in the heart of a lovely village (with a great pub across the road).
We would also definitely love to go back next year.
The owners are very friendly and helpful.
I would highly recommend this property and location.

"Fantastic well equipped house in a picture perfect location"
We found Cromlech House a terrific place to stay, a very well equipped house in the beautiful village of Mortehoe. The house has great character, is large and spacious and met all our needs. It has a great sized kitchen for cooking, eating and socialising in. Great TV and Wifi facilities. The location of the house is ideal is such a beautiful picture perfect village and surrounded by little shops, 3 pubs, a restaurant and a Cream Tea cafe what more do you need. The village of Woolacombe just nextdoor is also a beautiful place with it's sweeping award winning beach. We hired bikes from Otter Cycle Hire in Braunton and completed a 16 mile ride on the Tarka trail through Barnstaple and around the Taw Estuary to Fremington. There are other both shorter and longer routes you can do passing places of interest and with many places to stop for refreshments along the way. We travelled also to Clovelly which was a beautiful and interesting village set in the side of the hill running downhill to the shore. We would also recommend a visit to the quaint village of Croyde which also has a great beach. Dominic, the owner runs a very smooth operation with excellent communication throughout every stage of the booking, the holiday and very prompt repayment of the security deposit after the holiday. We couldn't fault the house, the location or the service we received from Dominic. We hope to return again soon.

"Great house in perfect location - perfect for 2 families"
The house is situated in the heart of a lovely village surrounded by stunning beaches and scenery. Great place to unwind and relax and we didn't use the car all week (other than the daily shuttle run to dump all the beach / surfing gear down at the beach!)
We stayed in the house for our family holiday with friends and the accommodation was very comfortable for two families. The children took over the top floor which they loved!! The house would also be suited to groups of adults.
We were initially concerned about the lack of outdoor space but it really wasn't an issue as the headland and beaches are literally on the doorstep and there was plenty of room in the house for drying out wet clothes / wetsuits etc.
Dom and Iona are both really friendly and helpful and made us feel very welcome in their house.
Would definately recommend and looking forward to re booking in the future!
