From the moment we arrived, Diana's Cottage felt like home! It was warm and welcoming mainly due to the fabulous AGA in the kitchen, and the lovely scones and fresh flowers left by our hosts What a lovely touch! The Kitchen is well equipped and includes a regular cooker but we enjoyed cooking on the AGA (first time for everything) even if we did make the odd mistake, this is where we all congregated for a drink or to plan what we were going to do the next day. Stretching out like cats in front of that AGA. The sitting room was very comfortable with glorious views over the garden and a glimpse of the valley. The bedrooms were equally comfortable. Crisp white linen and comfortable beds with ample storage. We were lucky enough to have good weather and spend most of our time on the beach (Saunton Sands roughly 2 miles away) so it was great to return to the large family bathroom with a super hot power shower and fluffy white towels! The secret garden is accessed via the gate marked 'Diana's secret Garden' Enclosed mainly by a high hedge with a high wall to the front. A delightful outside space with beautiful views over the stunning countryside and safe so children can run free. Equipped with BBQ and garden furniture the perfect place to enjoy a drink or a meal. We all enjoyed our stay at Diana's cottage very much and wished we'd booked for longer. One thing for sure we are all agreed we're definitely going back!
