“Rustic cottage in great location”

Skirr cottage is a lovely thatched cottage in Georgeham. The cottage is simply furnished, but has some nice perks like a good range cooker and a heated outdoor shower. Great location - a short walk to a couple of the best pubs in the area and a quick drive to the beaches (with parking included).

Living in Spain I often miss the UK, funnily enough.
This part of Devon is lovely and the cottage is beautiful and cosy.
Seems like a great place not only during the summer, somewhere to visit and relax throughout the year.

“A place of total relaxation”
Reviewed 12 January 2016 for a stay in September 2015

A beautiful thatched cottage in an outstanding position. I cannot recommend it more highly. Super comfortable beds, a huge dining table for entertaining (although you have a wonderful pub just up the road) even an outside shower (as well as an inside one). However who would not want to shower looking at the moon and hearing the church bells with a babbling brook running alongside. If you are looking for peace and tranquility, with easy access to wonderful beaches, walks and pubs, look no further than this cottage. You will not be disappointed.

“Writers Retreat”
Reviewed 7 January 2016 for a stay in December 2014

I stayed at Skirr Cottage with some other lady writers and we had a wonderful time. Local walks, meals at the pub, bought essentials from the Georgeham shop and of course wrote simply 1,000's of wonderful words! The cottage itself is gorgeous and you simply MUST have an outdoor shower, regardless of the weather - it's bliss!

“Character filled cottage in a terrific location.”
Reviewed 3 December 2015 for a stay in April 2015

If you're looking for somewhere to stay that's chock full of character, you won't be disappointed with this cottage. Well appointed too with everything you'd expect make you stay as comfortable and relaxed as possible. A stones throw from a very good pub with great beers and even better food! Easy access to two fabulous beaches (I'm biased here as I enjoy surfing!!) with some spectacular coastal paths.
All in all, we had a thoroughly enjoyable stay and will definitely be booking again.
