About the property


The Buttery is a wonderful self-catering holiday home in Mortehoe, near Woolacombe, North Devon. We bought this property in the village's Victorian 'crescent' in July 2010 and have worked non-stop since then until July 2011, together with our excellent builder Pearce Barnstaple, to create what we feel is an ideal holiday home in a perfect North Devon village. The Buttery is now our own much-loved family holiday home and is also available for rent. If you choose The Buttery for a holiday we aim to make you want to come back again and again.

About Dominic Parkinson

I am an architect living in London. I know North Devon well, having holidayed here and worked on design projects in the area. Mortehoe has always struck me as a gem - amazing location and people, and not spoiled by excessive tourism. When in 2010 my husband Dominic and I had the opportunity to buy a run-down hotel/restaurant in the terrace at the heart of the village we jumped at the chance. The next 12 months were incredibly busy and satisfying ... with a huge effort by excellent local builder and a lot of design, structural work, conservation, inspiration and management, The Buttery was reborn as our own holiday home, which we are also going to rent out. We hope to have a lot of the same guests renting year after year. We would welcome you to our house in Mortehoe!

Dominic Parkinson purchased this house in 2010

“Accommodating house with lots of space"

  • 5 of 5

ayed for a week to celebrate our Wedding Anniversary. Our family joining us for the weekend. Cromlech House is very well equipped with all that you need. It is very clean, comfortable and practical. Plenty of games to amuse the children. My husband and I then explored the local area and thoroughly enjoyed the 'locals' in the village of Mortehoe. The Ship Aground pub was very welcoming with good food and our son's dog Dora, really enjoyed visiting and being fussed over. The whole area has plenty to offer for young and old alike...hopefully we can return in the future.

Incredible house and location

  • 5 of 5

The house was absolutely incredible, very clean, modern, spacious and

true to the photos. In a great location, in the heart of Mortehoe,

with a range of places to eat and drink. A 5 minute walk to the beach

(slightly on a hill), or a short 5 minute drive to Woolacombe beach.

The owners could not have been more helpful or friendly. Would

recommend to anyone wanting somewhere near the beach, whether friends

or families.

Fantastic house in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

We were a party of 6 adults, 1 x baby and 2 x toddlers. We have previously stayed at The Buttery so we knew that we would not be disappointed with the property. The property is as the photos, although there are less photos of Cromlech on the website, don't worry the house is beautiful throughout. The kitchen is well equipped for catering in the house. The twin room on the top floor is huge and is great as a 'family bedroom'. The house overall is very spacious but has a lovely homely feel. The owner provided excellent customer service and quickly dealt with any queries, and the deposit was returned promptly.

I would recommend this property (and The Buttery) to friends and family, and I know that our family whom holidayed with us were equally impressed with the house. We hope to make another return visit at some time in the future.

With regards to location the pub serving good food is opposite and the coast path (off road) to local beaches is about a minutes walk away. The kids loved the local beach with rock pools, down the bottom of the grassy hill. Mortehoe is a small village with a small village store, pub and beaches within a 10 minute walk (down hill). You can very easily spend a few days exploring the local area by foot.
