“We would definitely recommend staying in this lovely house” We were a group of couples with 3 babies/toddlers. The house was as advertised and was perfect for our weekend stay (shame we were not staying longer). The booking was easy and the owners were quick to repsond to any emails exchanged before our holiday.
It was lovely to be in a village setting yet close to the beach with coastal walks just on your doorstep.
We will definitely go back to The Buttery again at some point.
“fantastic, you must stay here” I found Cromlech house after almost giving up looking for a place for us & our six friend to celebrate new year, as we only wanted a 4 day break i email Dominic about availability & pricing his response was very quick calling me that evening, he could not have been more helpful, after booking the property for our stay Dominic constantly stayed in contact giving us info & asking if there was anything that we needed to make our stay more comfortable the service he offers is outstanding, The house is a credit to its owners it has been restored to a very high standard, & has everything that is needed for a comfortable stay, the location is great, stand at the front door & you can see the sea, there are many coastal walks, & the village has 3 public houses, i would recommend a stay here you would not be disappointed
“Truly wonderful” We have just returned from a truly wonderful week at Shaftsboro’ cottage. Margaret and her family are wonderful hosts sharing lots of local information as to where to visit and where to eat. The cottage is compact but very well appointed and very comfortable, and the spacious garden is beautiful.
Our dog enjoyed his stay too getting on well with the farm dogs. We loved the local Lee beach, local walks from the farm and the local pubs were dog friendly too. The cottage is well situated to visit other parts of Devon too and within a short distance of The Tarka Trail and Exmoor National Park. A truly fantastic find and we will definitely be returning.
At the northernmost point of Devon lies Mortehoe, a traditional seaside village. Come here to escape the hustle and bustle of daily life and enjoy the sea air.
In just a few clicks you can book your holiday rental in Mortehoe and start planning your trip.
The town has a long history – it's in the Domesday Book – and still upholds ancient local traditions. It grew to become famous for farming and as a base for smugglers and wreckers, but today is becoming increasingly popular with tourists thanks to its quiet beaches.
What to Do
To find out a bit about Mortehoe’s history, head to the Heritage Centre in the Cart Linhay building. The upper floor is a museum and tells you about the farms, railways and shipwrecks on the treacherous coastal rocks.
Take a trip to Bull Point Lighthouse. It's a short walk from the village and a great spot for a picnic. Walkers might prefer the climb to Morte Point – see if you can spot the seals on the northern side of the peninsula.

The Crescent, Mortehoe
Super facilities, great location
We rented both properties together for a group of my husbands friends and they were ideal and very good value when the cost was split between the 11 of them. Good WiFi, and plenty of bathrooms and very big bedrooms mainly- the guys loved the space. The Chichester pub opposite is a treasure and the Ship Aground was fine too. They were out of season so the chippie/takeaway wasn’t open but the local shop was well-stocked with quality produce and bigger shops only a short drive away. They were pretty much snowed in for 2 of the 4 days of their stay but still loved it - and will be back!! Dominic the owner is very easy to deal with and very helpful when we had to change the original dates and the deposit was quickly refunded at the end of the stay. Several golf courses within a short drive plus riding stables for beach riding just 5 minutes away in Woolacombe …
Luxury Garden Penthouse Studio
Lovely apartment in excellent position
Lovely flat good quality equipment. Very clean with comfortable bed which is important as I have arthritis. Lots of stairs which weren't a problem for me it's the sleeping I have problems with but the bed was good quality.
Outside balcony spacious.
All local pubs/bars welcomed dogs which was important to us.
Weather was not brilliant but that's England. …
Shaftsboro Farm Caravan
Even let us carry on with our holiday after their sad news
Great place to escape to for some peace and quiet after having to book term time holidays and having to put up with busy beaches etc...
Very reasonable too.
Fab to see the ducks in the field every time you look out of the caravan window.
Lovely to be left alone to enjoy our holiday.
Just got fed up of having to pull over each time and get fine scratches on my car, that will come out with T-cut, from the bushes, down the narrow lane to the farm.
Thank you for still letting us carry on with our holiday after the very sad time for your family, felt a bit guilty really, but did enjoy it, hope things are sort of OK. Thank you. …
Lovely holiday home!
A delightful holiday home with stunning sea views. A clean, modern and well equipped detached house which is very fascinating being in the grounds of the lighthouse.
A lovely place to stay. …
