The beautiful three bedroom Ford Hill Cottage in Kentisbury, North Devon is the perfect setting for a memorable holiday with friends or family. Located within a few miles of the nearby village of Combe Martin, the cottage is only a short drive from a beach and Exmoor. Recently decorated to a high standard, the cottage effortlessly combines period charm and character with elegant style and sophistication. Downstairs hints or red conjure a warm and cosy atmosphere for relaxing, whilst upstairs in the bedrooms tones of blue and green are wonderfully calming for creating the perfect night's sleep.

Comfort and relaxation in a beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

Ford Hill Cottage is one of the best cottages we have ever rented, and we have rented many. It is beautifully renovated, and the owners have thought of everything. There are many thoughtful and considerate touches, from the 'welcome hamper' to the toiletries.

The warm, personal welcome from owner, Janet, was much appreciated after a long drive.

Beautifully equipped cottage in peaceful location

  • 5 of 5

This is a very comfortable and well equipped cottage which has everything you need for a great holiday base. It was lovely to come home to comfortable beds with lovely bedding each night. The games room was a great bonus for entertainment and drying beach gear. The cottage situation is very peaceful but within easy reach of Croyde & other coastal spots. There are some great pubs nearby too - we loved the Black Venus Inn and The Pyne Arms which are just up the road. The owner was very helpful and informative when she met us at the start of our stay, Thank you.

Beautifully well equipped cottage in hamlet.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was beautifully designed, well equipped and comfortable. We could not have asked for more! Janet met us at the cottage and gave us all the necessary information about the cottage and surrounding area. She provided an incredible basket of goodies which we thoroughly enjoyed, particularly the red wine and pro secco. We found a nice up hill local walk to Kentisbuy church Which is beautiful. The cottage provided an excellent base to visit the stunning local area including Heddon's mouth, Sunday lunch at The Fox and Goose at Parracombe(recommended by Janet), Arlington Court and Watersmeet. The other highlights included Baggy point walk and lunch in Gergeham pub. Clovelly and Hartland Quay were a bit further but stunning and well worth a visit.

Unforgetable holidays

  • 5 of 5

We enyoyed our stay very much. Ford Hill is such a lovely Cottage. It was the perfect location for our holiday. The boys liked playing kicker and billard in a big room next to the Cottage. Wie enyoyed sitting in the garden, reading and tasting all the regional specialities which Janet gave us for welcome. We also liked visiting the coast, especially Whoolacombe which has a wonderful beach and Lynton where we had a magnific walk round the coast and after that a very good cream tea at the villa spaldi. We are looking forward to coming back.

A wonderful stay in a high end cottage

  • 5 of 5

A family of four; two adults, two children aged 12 and 15.

We all loved our stay. The cottage is spacious and warm with all the mod-cons. The owners are friendly but not intrusive.

The location is fab to get away from it all but not feel isolated.

Would highly recommend and would definitely book again in the future!
