We had a lovely holiday here in May. Great base for exploring North Devon. Stephen and Ella were friendly and welcoming, especially with our Son. Great facilities for young children, both in the cottage and the pool and games room. Very peaceful and relaxing surroundings!

Just back from a blissful 7 day break. Cannot speak highly enough of the place - clean, comfortable place to stay with the added bonus of a decent indoor pool if the UK weather lets you down, plus a few little livestock to see. The beaches are all nearby, and we found the restaurants to be really child friendly. My...

We have stayed at Willowfield lake cottages twice now, both times it has been a great place to stay with a small child. The cottages are well equipped, and perfect for our crawling baby, and us. She slept well in the cot provided! The Pool, animals, play area and surroundings are perfect for entertaining a little one. The cream tea...

We've just returned from our third stay at Willowfield Lake Cottages / Saunton Sands Cottages where we stayed in Mallard cottage. As ever the cottage and its facilities are first class, and our girls (aged 7 and 3) were in their element - they loved feeding the pigs, goats and chickens especially. The grounds and play areas are safe and...

We recently had a return visit to Willowfield Lake Cottages, and it was just as perfect as we remembered! The cottage was immaculate, and we felt so relaxed, it was great to escape from London for the weekend and just switch off. The surrounding area is beautiful - Saunton Sands is a short walk away, and a very pleasant trip...

We had a brilliant holiday staying in Swallow cottage, Saunton Sands. Everything is so well-maintained and the location is just beautiful. It's perfect for those with children (we have two boys aged 12 and 9) as it's so close to the beaches, beautiful countryside and the Tarka Trail for biking. Thoroughly recommended for families, whatever ages your children are. And...

12 cottages with warm indoor pool and large hot tub set in the beautiful naturally tranquil surrounds of Braunton Burrows Nature Reserve, with miles of stunning golden sands and surf close by at Saunton and Croyde. A wonderful place to enjoy the glorious countryside on bike along the famous Tarka Trail or in endless walks across the unspoilt burrows and dunes that lead down to the sea at Saunton Sands. Some cottages have hot tubs or whirlpool baths to help you relax and unwind after a long day on the beach. Open all year long for long or short breaks. ... more   less
