“A lovely cottage! The kitchen had all the equipment you could possibly need and more! The bathroom was newly renovated and very nice. I loved the sea side themed decoration in the bathroom, and bedrooms. The living room was very warm during the cold evenings in March. I loved the location in Stoke easy walking distance to Hartland Quay and the coastal path. Amazing views and scenery. Hartland village was very close for shops, pubs and an awesome chip shop. Overall, we loved it!!”

“Lovely cottage, nice location but could do with a shop other than the campsite shop open limited hours. However nearby Hartland had two shops. Cottage very well equipped in the kitchen. Lovely private enclosed garden. Had a very nice break away from it all.”

“Really enjoyed our stay at this cottage. Its a totally new area of the country for us and we loved exploring the coastline. Nearby the walks near Hartland quay are spectacular, spekes mill mouth waterfall was a highlight. The kitchen is extremely well equipped, and the bathroom excellent having been recently redecorated, the shower in the bath was very nice. We enjoyed the back garden which did get some sunshine and we also were visited by peacocks in the garden. I would stay here again if I was visiting the north Devon or Cornwall coast.”
