Reviewed 13 August 2017 via mobile

Shortly after arriving at primrose lane cottage we were met by the friendly owner and his family and shown around,we had a great holiday and my partner made good use of the hot tub.
The location is very remote and quiet which was ideal for us,and the views were spectacular.
On our last day the owner came round and made sure we were happy with our stay and also showed me around another property we were interested in,we are hoping to return again next year to the same property.
Highly recommended

Just returned from a week at Smythen Farm. Stayed in Fisherwood Cottage which was perfect. Cannot fault the accommodation. Spotless, well equipped and cosy. Kids loved the swimming pool and the games room. Beautiful setting and plenty to do in the local area. Owners really friendly and helpful. Had a brilliant week, despite of the weather! Hope to return in the future and will be recommending to friends and family x

We have just spent a wonderful week at Smythen Farm (in Buttercup, known as Ruggaton cottage). The pool, games room and outdoor play areas are fantastic and kept our 4 and 6 year olds well entertained. The location is beautiful with stunning views. The cottage was very well decorated and equipped. Be aware the cottage is part of a complex so the cottages are terraced (but we didn't experience any noise). Owners very friendly and helpful. Great location for exploring Exmoor and the beautiful coastline. Lynton/Lynmouth are stunning and easily accessible for a day trip. Highly recommended.

with an exceptional view over Sterridge valley and the Sea, these cottages represent a uniquely peaceful retreat for busy people. The owner, Bill is welcoming. Much to recommend in the area such a endless beaches and rural pubs. A must for anyone wishing to escape from a busy life in big cities!

Room Tip: we loved the Primrose Lane cottage - quiet and excellent views

My wife and I stayed in the Primrose Lane cottage with our cocker spaniel from the 8 th to the 15th July. Perfectly situated to explore the beautiful villages of North Devon. Superb accommodation in a tranquil and peaceful location.
Extremely comfortable and the owners, who live in one of the properties, go out of there way to be helpful and friendly.
Although not used by us the cottages have an indoor swimming pool and large games building.
All you need for a wonderful holiday.
