4.7 based on 3 holidaymaker reviews
We stayed here, looking for a quiet, relaxing break for a long weekend. It ticked all our boxes. The owner made us feels really welcome and it was nice to know they were never far away if we needed anything. We didn't explore to much on this visit, but will return in the summer to explore further. The cottage itself is basic, but met all our needs.
Peaceful stay in stunning surroundings
We had a very relaxing week long break. The cottage was homely, with cream teas when we arrived and Julia made us feel very welcome and gave us local produce from her garden. It is just a short walk through lovely woodland to Hartland village where there are pubs and shops. The coastline is stunning and we had ready printed out maps for walking. We really could not have asked for more from our hosts who provided a lovely little 'home from home' in which to explore the exceptional local scenery and unwind from busy lives in tranquil surroundings. Would highly recommend!
