Interaction with guests
When we created Downe Cottages our objective was to provide the holiday accommodation that we would have loved to have found. We are very demanding visitors when we stay in hotels or cottages and we insisted that our cottages be: Immaculately clean. Warm whatever the weather. Spacious (a cottage cannot be luxurious without being spacious). Well equipped so that our visitors can come bringing only their clothes, their food and themselves. Beautiful to look at both internally and externally. With well maintained, spacious grounds We welcome visitors to the cottage and we are on hand to resolve any problem that might occur. Everything in our cottages works as it is intended to work.

About the neighbourhood
Japonica is set within a beautiful courtyard formed by a group of old stone barns which have been lovingly converted to provide luxury self-catering cottages. The ambiance of courtyard is quiet, peaceful, perfect rest and repose.
Downe is located in the North Devon Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and looks West over the Atlantic (next stop America), North up to Lundy Island and (if you stand on tip toe on a little hill in our garden) East into Bideford Bay.
The star attraction of the locality is the North Devon Coast - rugged, raw and majestic.
