My family had a lovely week at Skirr Cottage in July. The cottage itself is very well equipped, with mod cons, as well as having a wonderful old world charm - it even has its own blue plaque! Location is great - there are so many amazing Devon beaches nearby, perfect for surfing/body boarding and the local (gastro) pub is just a stone's throw away. The outdoor shower is gorgeous - hot and private(!) and perfect for rinsing off wet suits!!
What a smashing week we have had staying at Skirr Cottage in Georgeham.
We've had a mix of weather and the cottage has looked after us well. The log burners warmed the cottage up on the wet chilly day and the stone walls kept it nice and cool on the hot days.
My absolute favourite thing is the outdoor shower. Birds tweeting, the church bells ringing and the hot shower beating down on my head. Perfect.
One evening we came back in our wetsuits from the beach and went straight to the shower. Bliss.
The front garden is a really beautiful place. A real country garden. Plenty of space for the children to play with a ball whilst we relaxed in the sunshine.
The cottage is very quiet and the beds are all extremely comfortable so it's the perfect place for catching up on sleep!
That said, there is so much to do in the area! We visited Putsborough beach which is simply stunning. The children loved playing in the pools left behind by the tide. You get free parking there (normally £8.50) when you stay at Skirr Cottage.
Woolacombe was fun and we all enjoyed a sunset swim there after a meal at The Red Barn.
On the rainy day we went to a swimming pool followed by a fabulous meal at The Kings Arms which is a stone's throw away from the cottage. The children had sausages and we had lamb/fish followed by a yummy cheeseboard. The wine is really good too.
The church next door to the cottage is interesting so worth a visit.
We are already planning a trip back in the autumn so we can make full use of all of the board games in front of a cosy fire!
Thank you to Alan & Clare who gave us lots of tips before we went (and also returned the toys we left behind - oops!). Thank you both so much.
A perfect, magical retreat for our anniversary. Thanks to Alan and Clare, who were perfect hosts too. We will remember our stay in Skirr Cottage always and would highly recommend it and the surrounding area
Rustic cottage full of charm and character, wife adored the bed.? Love georgeham. Loved the cottage. If available we will book next year too.
