Had I have read other reviews of Green Gates before booking, I would have been sceptical due to the liberal scattering of superlatives! I will try not to add too much in that regard, but I really can't praise Sarah and Dan enough. Naturally warm and inviting, they make you feel welcome from the moment you step over the threshold.
The accommodation itself was top-class, with our room being immaculately presented and well away from any traffic noise. The location is very good, situated just outside Braunton town centre and within easy walking distance of a number of restaurants. The beaches of Saunton and Croyde are within a few minutes' drive, with the secluded Putsborough being around 20 minutes by road.
Breakfast was excellent, I could barely get out the door for the amount of toast and tea that kept appearing to complement the locally-sourced full English!
I understand that Sarah and Dan have only been the proprietors since early this year, but it is clear that they have got off to a tremendous start. We would not hesitate to recommend the Green Gates, and will definitely be returning.
