Really lovely week , spacious property, superb garden for the children to play in.

  • 5 of 5

Property had everything we required, as per listing description. The garden was ideal for children to play and adults ! Using the barbecue worked v.well too. Ellen and Robert were the perfect hosts.

There is so much to do in the area, cycle ride to Barnstaple was flat and suitable for children. They all enjoyed The Big Sheep, Clovelly - don't take a buggy! Lots of Coastal walks and lovely beaches. Overall fantastic week would highly recommend it to anyone wanting a relaxing week.

Easy to get to Asda for food shopping.
