This is a very special cottage! Well-equipped, beautiful enclosed garden, easy access to surrounding countryside and coast. Dog friendly.
Myself and a group of friends were looking for a relaxing trip away from the city and we certainly found that at the Thatched Cottage. The cottage is gorgeous and superbly decorated with all you could wish for a comfortable stay.
The cottage made a great base to get out and explore the local area and we enjoyed lots of nice walks and trips to the beach. One night we stayed in and enjoyed a home cooked meal in the lovely dining area.
If you are looking for comfortable accommodation in a beautiful part of the country I can't recommend this place highly enough.
I will definitely be back x
From the outside the cottage is picture postcard and the garden has some lovely mature shrubs but the grass needed cutting so potentially could've looked neater. Location is convenient for the Atlantic Highway but the nearest beach is approx 20 minutes drive. Parking isn't great as it's down a lane and there is no space to load or unload the car outside of the cottage.
The dining room is quite dark but nicely decorated but the kitchen is quite grim and a bit smelly from the old extractor fan, although well equipped. The cottage wasn't as clean as expected for a holiday let which was disappointing as we were supposedly the 1st customers to reside there.
The owners had arranged for builders, a Risk Manager and various others to meet them on the day of our departure at 10am, and unfortunately a couple of them arrived early, so it was bedlam as we attempted to pack our car and leave.
We have stayed in numerous holiday rentals around Devon over the years and we feel that overall we paid a premium rate for a below premium accommodation. Very disappointed!!
