“Lovely house”
Reviewed 6 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

My family (children, husband, grandparents) and I stayed here for a week in mid-August. The house is spacious, well equipped and well located for shops and the seafront. Very comfortable - highly recommended!

“Great family holiday in a beautiful house with gorgeous views.”
Reviewed 3 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

This house is amazing, it is fully equipped with everything you need and the appliances are all very good including the iron. The kitchen is great for a large family, and it is where we spent a lot of time chatting and laughing. The bathrooms are fantastic with very good showers and lots of space.
Ilfracombe is a lovely place albeit a little hilly but OK for us . Just a 5 min walk to the supermarket but we ate out most days. The people of Ilfracombe and the neighbours were very friendly and helpful.The restaurants are all lovely but try to book at a weekend. Weatherspoons is cheap and cheerful but does get busy.
We had an active holiday with kayaking,coasteering and body surfing in Woolacombe.We had a fantastic time and would definitely visit again.
Caroline the owner is very professional , and left lovely flowers and essential supplies on our arrival. Thanks Caroline, it was very much appreciated.
WIFI was also very good.There is nothing more you would want from a holiday rental.
Hope to visit again soon.

“Fabulously well equipped house in excellent position”
Reviewed 30 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Have just returned from a week's stay at this exceptional holiday rental. Visited with my husband, two daughters, son-in-law and two grandchildren.

The house was spread over three floors with three double bedrooms, a single room and a room with bunk beds. There were two bathrooms containing baths and rainforest showers.
The loungle was a good size and very comfortable. Wi-fi was available. The kitchen was well appointed with all appliances including dishwasher, washing machine, tumble dryer and microwave.

What set this rental apart from the rest was the provision of all household items you could possibly need. There was also a welcome booklet with lots of local information and a "how to use" booklet for all the appliances. Fresh flowers had been placed in the kitchen together with a starter pack of milk and bread.

A lot of thought has gone into this holiday rental and we as a family would not hesitate to return. It actually felt like a home from home. For anyone looking to stay in Ilfracombe this is the place to rent.

“Superb base for a lovely family holiday”
Reviewed 8 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Stayed here over half term with 4 kids and 4 adults.

Amazing house, beautifully decorated and thoughtfully fitted out.

Great communication before and during the let, with really nice touches like bread and coffee / tea / milk already there.

Highly recommended, we will be back.
