Had a great holiday, 1 week stay at the Hideaway ideal for 5 adults 2 dogs & 2 cars. Lovely garden for the dogs but not secure by the house so needed to block off side path. Found property well cleaned but some areas needing a bit more tlc and maintenance e.g. the toilet seat in twin bedroom ensuite was broken and there was mould around the showers and sinks.
I had to do a bit of pruning to get round to the key safe at the back of the garage and cut brambles and nettles coming through from neighbouring property due to being attacked by these as I got out of the car, not easy with just small pair of scissors that I brought with me, couldn’t find anything else in the property. However we all enjoyed our stay there.
Everything about this place is great. It was spacious, warm and comfortable. We had the facilities to cook a great Christmas dinner and enjoy the hot tub after as a family. The views are lovely as is the Thatch Pub just a five minute walk away. The cottage is a fair walk into Ilfracombe about 15 minutes to the harbour and I would recommend always booking a taxi back if you have kids or if you have any difficulty with steep hills. Most cab firms charge about a fiver from the harbour area. All in all a great place to relax and unwind. Lastly, we left our coats in the cupboard but they kindly returned them to us by post. Fabulous service.
We had a lovely few days in Ilfracombe - stunning part of the country and the location of the hideaway was ideal to make the most of it.
The facilities at the hideaway were pretty good - the hot tub and spa bath were particular favourites.
If I was to be critical the only thing I would say is that the single beds weren’t very comfortable(probably fine for kids but not so much for an adult), and think couple of areas need a bit of tlc (for example grouting in the shower rooms/cushions in lounge a bit dirty)
We would definitely visit again - thanks again Jo
We enjoyed a family beak here in this pretty seaside town. Lots of places to visit for all the family including the dogs. I would recommend anyone to go to Watersmeet. The forest and the river are beautiful. This was our most favourite day.
The Hideaway is a lovely, clean airy bungalow, very comfortable.
I would prefer to have mattress protector and pillow protectors but this certainly not a complaint, just a suggestion.
The only thing we were not happy about was the rubbish and recycling. There are no recycle boxes and we had so many activities booked that we didn't have time to start carrying rubbish with us looking for some recycling place to dispose of it. I think the owners should have a rethink about it
Beautiful place, equipped with everything you would need. Every little detail was taken care of. Definitely will be back!
