Excellent location & well equipped holiday house

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Whitegates for two weeks this August

Great location for us as we like to visit Saunton beach regularly plus like the village of Braunton. An added plus was a open garden/lawn for our children to play on.

Wonderful family friendly home

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at the house. There is so much space inside and out which really lends itself well to family living.

The view is beautiful, the house is comfortable and well equipped; what more could you want!

We would definitely stay there again.

Great property and location

  • 5 of 5

Whitegates is an excellent property. Very spacious and child friendly, lots of books, games and toys to keep little ones and big ones entertained. The garden is amazing, as is the trampoline, sand pit and additional garden toys. The property is very well appointed, especially the kitchen area, with washing machine and tumble dryer in the utility room (very handy with little ones). You can also help yourself to tomatoes etc from the polytunnel.

Kate and Alan are very obliging and provide excelllent customer service.

The bungalow is positioned centrally to beaches and attractions. Braunton village is lovely with some good restaurants. It is very close to Saunton Sands (dogs allowed), Croyde beach (beautiful) and Woolacombe. Additional days spent in Ilfracombe at the harbour and the aquarium. A must to visit is Combe Martin Wildlife and Dinosaur park.

I would definitely recomend Whitegates as a holiday property, and one day would look to return.
