“Fantastic place.”
Reviewed 1 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We stayed at Willow Cottage for 5 nights and had a wonderful time. It was immaculately clean when we arrived and we loved all the nooks and crannies and absolute character of the place.

The beds were very comfortable and the cottage had everything you need for a pleasant stay. Even when the weather was bad and we stayed in we discovered lots of DVD's and board games and the cottage was very cosy. The owners have thought of everything and the cottage is well stocked. The bottle of wine waiting for us on the kitchen table was a lovely surprise too.

We would highly recommend Squires Fish&Chip shop/restaurant in Braunton- so good we visited two days running!

“great find”
Reviewed 25 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

The cottage was really lovely, well equipped with everything you would need. it was clean and tidy and in a great location for exploring the region or going to the beach. the outside space was a little disappointing, although there was somewhere to sit it was outside the front of the cottage and not suitable to sit out with a young child. That's just nit picking.. you couldn't fault the cottage itself in any way. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a home from home holiday property.

“Very pleasant and functional base for easy access to towns and beaches.”
Reviewed 7 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

The cottage was perfect for myself, wife and grown up daughter. The bedrooms were well appointed and the bathroom and kitchen had all the features you would expect. The living area was compact but had enough seating for four people and we made use of the extensive selection of DVDs! Being situated just off the main road, made it easy to find and also helped us to get to amenities such as the beaches and towns nearby. We walked to Croyde beach but it would be rather a long walk for many. I can imagine that the wood burning stove and fireplace would be a great feature in colder months.
