About the Owner

Hi, we are Cath and Adrian Elliott, we started life in the Vale of Evesham. But absolutely fell in love with Devon and moved down here about 13 years ago. We now live in Combe Martin in a remote location in a property with an acre of land. As we absolutely love growing and eating our own produce (especially the home produced eggs). Our two kids have recently left the fold and bought their own flats in the thriving street of Mill Street in Bideford (a place we recommend you visit).

Just stayed for a week, absolutely perfect we are a family of 4 including two teenage boys and found the cottage wonderful. Everything on the cottage was as described in the web page. Absolutely everything you would need is provided Very clean and welcome gift of wine and chocolate. The views are stunning the area is great and all that we wanted to do was very accessible by car. Westward Ho! Is a few minutes away and is a great family beech. I simply cannot recommend this cottage enough. The owners are very y helpful and a pleasure to deal with

A big step for mankind

  • 4 out of 5
Charming character cottage close but far enough out of town centre, handy if wanting to travel on a bus pass also convenient parking very near cottage. Clean and all that one requires for a pleasant holiday, owner was most cooperative with one problem that was self inflicted but in the end did not exist (LoL).
No fear of a small dog running out of the front door with the flood step , hence a big step for mankind, but not when coming down the spiral stairs that requires a backward step.

From the Owner

We purchased Allsorted because we had been looking to buy a holiday cottage for a while, but any previous properties just did not have the wow factor for us. But we immediately fell in love with Allsorted as soon as we went through the front door. Even mum gave it nine out of ten (you could have knocked me down with a feather) some other houses had scored as low as two with her. It is a quirky sort of property, but is has a positive, happy feel about it which seems immediately relaxing.

Activity and Interests


The estuary is on your doorstep, with the nearest beach being Westward Ho! and Appledore being approx 10 minutes drive away, Saunton Sands and Croyde beaches approx 30 minutes drive, then the spectacular 3 mile long beach at Woolacombe is approx 45 minutes drive away, all very popular with surfers.


Nearest airport is Exeter, being approx 1 1/2 hours drive away, and Bristol being the same distance, just north rather than south. The train service is also very good, with the nearest station at Barnstaple, only 20 mins drive away. The bus service is very good and frequent, or plenty of taxis are available if you prefer. Use of a car is handy, but car hire is plentiful if required.


Nearest town is Bideford being a 5 minute walk away. For greater selection of the larger stores, Barnstaple, the regional centre is approx 20 minutes drive away. The village of Appledore is very popular with its narrow streets, galleries, and quaint shops, along with a very popular slipway access for those interested in boating.

Further Details:

Bideford is very fortunate with a number of traditional shops, butchers and greengrocers still remaining open, although there are 3 large supermarkets on the outside of town. Also several restaurants, cafes and fast food establishments.For keen gardeners, the delightful and intriguing gardens of RHS Rosemoor are only a short drive away. For cyclists, bikes can be hired locally (2 minutes walk from the cottage, at the end of the road!) for use on the tarka trail which is literally 1 minute from the cottage.

From the Owner

Due to the remoteness of our house in Combe Martin, we find it an absolute pleasure when we stay in Allsorted, everything is just so handy. Supermarkets and local shops, literally five minutes walk over the old bridge (no need to get the car out!!!). For several years if we fancied a take away it would be a major expedition, we could not believe our luck at Allsorted you can have an array of different take aways delivered to your front door.
