“Lovely Cottage”
Reviewed July 22, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Had a very enjoyable stay at Willow Cottage, extremely well-equipped and really appreciated the thought that had gone into providing so much local information (also the bottle of wine!). The Ebrington Arms nearby was excellent for good reasonably priced food. If we decide to holiday in this area again would definitely book Willow Cottage again.

“Lovely cottage - very cosy when it's wet and windy outside!”
Reviewed October 31, 2013 for a stay in October 2013

The photos don't do the cottage justice - the lounge is lovely with a huge inglenook fireplace and beams. It was warm and comfortable when it was wet and windy outside. There's a really good selection of games, DVDs and books. However, no children's books, so take your own. The kitchen was very well equipped, but we found it difficult to seat a family of 4 at the dining table.

“Very Impressive Devon Cottage”
Reviewed October 22, 2013 for a stay in October 2013

Lovely weekend stay in this well equipped cottage. Bottle of red wine on arrival - what a welcome! Settees very comfortable. Kitchen has everything you might need.
Parking right outside. Short drive to Saunton Sands beach - fabulous for long walks.
Braunton has lots to offer in the way of restaurants, cafes and shops.
Didnt get chance to use the log burner as weather mild for the time of year but logs were available if needed.
A good drive from the Midlands makes this a great location for a weekend break.
Would love to return soon.
