We booked a week at the property High View, in Braunton at the beginning of August. The lovely thing that hits you as soon as you arrive, is it’s like a home from home. The Bungalow has been made to feel very cosy but also very stylish. We were greeted in the kitchen by a lovely welcome pack comprising a bottle of bubbles, cookies, milk, tea and coffee. For the coffee lovers out there, a very welcome nespresso machine and coffee pods also were provided. The kitchen is brand new, and is very well equipped with everything you would need from pizza cutters, cling film, olive oil and plenty of good quality utensils, crockery and pots. There is a separate WC, along with a brand new bathroom with over bath shower, and heated towel rail and lovely fluffy towels. A double bedroom and a twin bedroom were all beautifully dressed, simple and stylish, and the all important blackout blinds in both rooms! Plenty of wardrobe space and drawers and hangers and cosy bedding. The lounge / diner is lovely, has a fab oak extending dining table, really comfortable sofas and armchairs, and a wall mounted TV with Netflix included. The sofa extends into a sofa bed to sleep another two people. There are sliding patio doors out to decking with a table and chairs, with spectacular views over Braunton and out to sea. The lower part of the decking has a gas barbecue, and ample under-house storage, with chairs, parasol, beach toys etc. The owners have thought of everything here and also installed an outdoor hot shower to wash off any sand from the beach before entering the house. We had a glorious week staying at this Bungalow, it’s a few minutes drive to Saunton Sands, and then another few miles on to Croyde Bay, which has some spectacular beaches. Our kids went body boarding all the day and into the evening and didn’t want to come home. It’s a great base for exploring North Devon, we had such a great time and visited local attractions on a couple of less sunny days. It’s a short walk into the village of Braunton, where there are some lovely restaurants. Would highly recommend this place for a North Devon holiday, couldn’t fault the place at all, it was spectacularly clean and we can’t wait to go back again.
Having arranged a last minute girls weekend away to Devon, we didn't have high expectations about finding somewhere that would suit us, but how wrong could we be! The newly refurbished High View was absolutely perfect and if we weren't the first people to stay, then it certainly seemed like we were as everything was so pristine. We catered in on the first night which was absolutely no problem given the high spec of the kitchen (I do love a dishwasher in a holiday let) and then went out in Braunton on the second night which was just a 10 minute totter away in even the highest of heels. It rained on our last morning at High View but even that didn't diminish the view and I can't wait to go back. In fact I've already booked a week to take the family and the kids are very excited about the outside shower and store cupboard of body boards. Watch out beach, here we come...
We've just spent a lovely week at High View cottage. We were the first people to stay here after a complete refurbishment and I simply can't fault it. The cottage itself was beautifully furnished to a really high standard - absolutely everything was brand new and spotlessly clean. The photos don't quite do it justice. The owners were really friendly and have even provided a Nespresso coffee machine which went down a treat. The best feature was the spectacular views you get from the decking outside. It overlooks Braunton and the countryside and we spent many evenings just sitting looking at the view and having BBQs. This is the third year we've visited Braunton as we love the area and we'll definitely be returning to High View next year. Thank you for a great holiday!
