First holiday property rental for 24years as I usually camp, having two dogs, but Sitting Pretty was perfect, and Belinda's answers to my many pre-booking queries gave me all the confidence that this was the right choice for a much-needed holiday. Turned out to be perfect :) Sitting Pretty I feel is the best-located rental property in Leadengates Field, as it is central to the green, with shrubs opposite, plus the property's own trees to give some privacy, plenty ample side drive width, safe enclosed rear garden/patio for dogs/children plus small areas of earth/shrubs in rear paved garden for dogs who aren't keen on weeing on hard surfaces! A lovely sun-trap too. Light, airy, so well-equipped, esp kitchen, lounge and bedrooms, many helpful and home-from-home touches. Not a sterile rental but a lovely welcoming home with fresh bread and milk if desired on arrival left by cleaner. Ample entrance hall with bench and coat hooks/shelf and bathroom off with folding clothes horse, plus full-size f/freezer and super-equipped kitchen were perfect for our stay as dietary and disability needs meant we didn't eat out but fully self-catered (2adults and 2 collie-sized dogs). A really warm, cosy property, with books, games, dvd's, Freeview, wifi all included. Shower and bath very handy and with no properties directly adjoining rear, Sittimg Pretty was a peaceful location with beach and village easily and safely reached without roads to worry about. Highly recommended! We had a car and visited Braunton, Barnstable (good leisure centre and 25m pool), Woolacombe, Ilfracombe, Lynton, Lynmouth, Woody Bay steam train (accepts dogs, as does) Clovelley, and found lovely quiet country lanes to travel by. Ask for disability/carer discounts at attractions as these aren't publicised but were available eg free steam train and Clovelly entrance fee for carer; no blue badge parking concessions or tax-exempt due to disability free parking anywhere but park at Braunton Burrows for £1.50 taking route past toll road rather than £4 charge at Saunton Hotel beach car park. Happy holiday!
We visited this cottage last weekend for the first time and found it to be absolutely perfect for all our needs. Its tucked away in a little cul de sac and a stones throw, down a little lane to Croyde beach or the village centre so no need to drive. My son and his friend skateboard everywhere, they have forgotten how to walk, and found lots of quiet places to do this, as well as going round the green in front of the cottage a few times. The dunes behind the beach are fabulous and great fun for jumping around in. Croyde beach doesn't allow dogs so we went to Puttsborough beach which is 5 mins by car and we absolutely loved it, just beautiful and a surf school, café and loos. The cottage itself is so well equipped. We didn't need the washing machine, dishwasher etc but for a week it would all be really useful. I am really fussy about cleanliness and usually expect to have a bit of a clean when I use a rented property but no need this time, it was sparkling clean and well up to my OCD standards! Lots of pubs in the village to eat at if you can't be bothered to cook and some nice little surf shops and usual post office bakery and so on. We loved it and highly recommend you visit the area and "Sitting Pretty".
