fabulous cottage, great base for seeing devon and cornwall, lovely friendly welcome with scones and homemade jam, would go again anytime
The warmest of welcomes from the owner who made us feel at home immediately. The cottage contains everything and more for a perfect break. Comfortable bed and extremely well equipped kitchen and bathroom. A log burner in the lounge made for a very cosy end to each day. Best of all was the fact that pub was two minutes walk away, where a wide selection of real ales was available and the food is of a high standard and you are welcomed as a villager not an outsider visiting.
The cottage was very clean and comfortable, felt like home from home. Incredibly quite location and very friendly villagers. Perfect location for Rosemoor, Dartington glass and a visit to Hartland abbey Bay, superb. Great walks along the Tarka Trail. Whatever you are interested in, this is a perfect spot.
we have just returned from this lovely cottage near bideford in devon. it is everything you want for a relaxing break. the owners david and erica have made elm cottage a real home from home. it is close to the tarka trail, perfect for a days cycling. a trip to clovelly is a must. we thoroughly recommend this cottage. geoff aqnd karan staples
We wanted a traditional cottage (not a bungalow masquerading) in a real village, and we got it. Fantastic. Scones with Devonshire clotted cream on arrival. We have two young ones (2 & 6) so the location was perfect. The 'amazing' Big Sheep is just around the corner. A great bike ride along the 'Otter Trail', great beaches nearby and the beautiful Woolacoombe beach just up the road (take the hill road and drop down through the dunes to escape the masses). Clovelly is nearby too and still truly beautiful.
A very comfortable cottage with lots of extra facilities which were very welcome when the weather was not so good.The welcome was warm and everything was exceptionally well prepared including a plate of scones.The cottage was in a good location to allow visits to the sights of both Devon and Cornwall.A lovely time was had by all.
