Guests that stayed at this property said

There is no specific mention of cleanliness in the reviews, so it is not possible to provide a score for this category.

The location is described as peaceful and close to nature, offering a relaxing rural retreat with scenic views. However, some guests found the access road challenging, which affects the score.

Guests find the cottage to be modern, well-equipped, and comfortable, with high-quality furniture and a relaxing atmosphere. The presence of a deck and the opportunity to enjoy nature add to the comfort. Some concerns about the bathroom size and lack of a mirror near a plug are noted.

The property is commended for its high-quality fittings and modern conveniences. However, the absence of a freezer or ice box and the small shower cubicle are drawbacks mentioned by guests.

Bideford is an historic maritime town on the River Torridge in North Devon. There has been a settlement at Bideford for over a thousand years and it has been an important port throughout its history. Today, Bideford is a thriving town with a fine selection of shops (including individual shops), cafes and restaurants, a park and the Atlantic Village Outlet Shopping Centre located on the outskirts of the town. Bideford is in a fantastic location to explore the surrounding area. It is just a few miles from Westward Ho!, which is dominated by two miles of spectacular coastline and proudly retains the prestigious Blue Flag award year upon year. Its sandy beach, backed by a unique pebble ridge, attracts visitors from all over the country and offers fantastic bathing and watersport activities. Just beyond the pebble ridge is Northam Burrows Country Park, which lies in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and has 253 hectares of grassy coastal plain with salt marsh, sand dunes and grasslands. The country park is also home to England's oldest golf course. The South West Coastal Path and the famous traffic-free Tarka Trail are close by, providing magnificent walking and cycling opportunities. The award-winning Big Sheep all weather family attraction and the Ultimate Adventure Centre are approximately a mile down the road, with the Atlantic Village Outlet Shopping Centre and Supermarket a couple of miles away. The delightful quayside village of Appledore and the pretty beach at Instow are both just over three miles away, whilst the traditional market town of Barnstaple is just ten miles away, and the picturesque fishing village of Clovelly, with its quaint cobbled streets, is eleven miles away. The North Devon coast also boasts numerous outstanding beaches, many within easy reach, including those found at Instow, Saunton Sands, Croyde, Woolacombe and Bude. This is an area of breathtaking beauty, with plenty to see and do for all ages.

    Very peaceful. Home from home. Enjoyed the bird song and watching the guinea fowl. Steep drive! Made it up and down on the electric bikes though. Thank you.

  • Pauline

    Would not have booked if was aware of this..

  • Irene

    However you should warn visitors about the very steep, narrow drive. Also there is no freezer or ice box - can't even freeze ice packs for a picnic. The bathroom has a tiny washbasin and the shower cubicle is very small. Not fit for purpose. Bedroom had no mirror for hair drying near a plug. Lot of waste space in that room.
