Cottage was cosy and clean in a good location not far from beaches and the town pretty garden and dog safe we all enjoyed our stay.

Owner's reply: Thank you for taking the time to give us a review. We are so pleased that you had a good time. We absolutely agree about the location; so peaceful and close to all amenities. And as dog owners ourselves it's good to have the peace of mind that you can just open the patio doors and let them enjoy themselves.

“Comfortable, clean cottage”

Reviewed 21 Aug 2017

We stayed at the Thatched Cottage for a week in August. The cottage is ideal for dog owners an enclosed garden a bonus, lovely walks nearby. Clean, comfortable with most requirements met. Only slight downfalls are no power shower and a lack of board games. Very handy for seaside resorts, the beautiful beach at Putsborough a must (be aware of extortionate parking charges) Ilfracombe and Clovelly to name a few.

Owner's reply: Thank you for your review and we are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay. We haven't had any feedback on our shower before, as it is a 16th century cottage, but we will take your thoughts on board. Putsborough can be expensive in peak times, however parking in marine drive car park is cheaper and a really nice walk down to the beach. Best wishes Jilly and Ian

“Beautiful, well-equipped cottage in ideal situation”

Reviewed 2 Sep 2015

We came back for a second holiday in this lovely cottage as it offers everything that you need for a very comfortable break in a lovely part of the country. The cottage is beautifully decorated and furnished and extremely well-equipped. The garden is gorgeous and we love the cottage so much that, after a day's walking or other activity, we just didn't want to go out in the evening. We would all recommend it without reservation

“Beautifully appointed, conveniently located period holiday cottage.”

Reviewed 11 Aug 2015

Extremely comfortable and convenient base for our great niece's wedding. We booked from Australia an received excellent and prompt service from Jilly. We could not have had a better base for our week in Barnstaple. We have no hesitation in recommending this lovely period cottage which has easy access to the town, coast, Dartmoor and Exmoor.

“True to description”

Reviewed 30 Apr 2015

Beautiful picturesque cottage with lovely relaxed decor throughout. Heaps of authenticity but with modern kitchen making it an ideal stop for a group or small family. Nice and quiet and easy driving distance to most amenities. Comfortable beds and nice pillows.

“Fantastic well equipped cottage in a great location to be enjoyed by all age groups”

Reviewed 13 Sep 2014

This is a fantastic, very comfortable and well equipped cottage in a superb location. The owners did everything to make our family stay including our dog most enjoyable. It is finished to a very high standard and has a beautiful enclosed garden where we enjoyed several meals al fresco. The Tarka trail and visits to surrounding beaches were all very accessible. Booking thoroughly recommended.

“Peaceful Holiday Retreat”

Reviewed 27 Aug 2014

Spacious property, great location and fully equipped with everything for an enjoyable stay. We were a group of 5 adults and 2 children but, the house was plenty big enough still to have your own space. The garden was fully enclosed ensuring our two dogs were safe.
