Large, beautiful cottage

By FP on 07-Apr-2024

The cottage is large, beautiful and incredibly well equipped. The host is very friendly! One of the best places we stayed!

Beautiful and spotless

By ER on 18-Feb-2024

We had the most wonderful stay at Wendy’s place! The house was beautiful and absolutely spotless. It was fully equipped for all of our needs. The kitchen was full of utensils and equipment, there were towels on each bed and a basket of wood with instructions for the fire. It felt like a home away from home and we would definitely come again! Wendy was on hand during our stay to answer any questions, she was super responsive and had great knowledge of the surrounding area- with hints and tips for us. The local pub was seconds away and was so cosy and welcoming, and the surrounding towns/villages are lovely. We visited Instow and had the best seafood!! Overall we could not have asked for a better place to stay or host in Wendy, and we will be visiting in the summer to enjoy the wonderful garden with BBQ area :)

Gorgeous property

By BS on 01-Jan-2024

We (2 adults and a toddler) really enjoyed our NYE at Wendy’s. The property is gorgeous, really well laid out and loads of space. Bedrooms were cosy and comfy, bathrooms modern and kitchen a great socialising size. It was really great relaxing watching a film by the log burner. It’s a great location for North Devon, close to great beaches, towns and walks. Wendy went out of her way to make sure the house was set up specifically for us, which was appreciated. Staying here was a bit of a luxury for us but we’d definitely come back here in the future if we can!
