This was a last minute booking for us and what a gem it was to find. Stunning surroundings, so peaceful, the play area was open and was perfect for my 7 and 8 year olds. Just 15 minutes to Woolacombe, plenty to do in the area. Had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. Would recommend". August 2020 "Lake View cottage is reached by a long and winding country lane. The views are beautiful and there is a lake for fishing, our friend caught quite a few fish. Its very quiet and peaceful. There is also a well equipped play area for children set a short distance from the cottage. The cottage is very comfortable and has all mod cons. The Crown Inn West Down is a 15 min walk away and offered very reasonable food. Braunton has lots of restaurants, our favourite was the French Corner Bistro. I would recommend Fliers taxi's if you don't want to drive. Very reliable. Ilfracombe tunnels worth a visit, lovey beeches at Woolacombe, Saunton and Crowd. Lynton and Lymouth is a must, very quaint and unspoilt. Great golf at Saunton Sands and Royal North Devon, West wood ho Thanks to Janine and James the owners who were very helpful, we certainly enjoyed our stay
