“Cosy, warm welcoming Cottage.”
Reviewed 3 January 2015 for a stay in December 2014

We live in Spain and came over for the first time in 10 years for Christmas. I chose Willow Cottage because the photos looked great, cosy, well furnished and a wonderful log burner. We couldn't have been happier. It was everything we imagined it to be. The night storage heaters work really well and we walked into a warm cottage in the middle of the day. The log burner was fabulous in the evening as well. The kitchen is well equipped and we really felt we were living in a home rather than a rental cottage. A lot of careful thought has gone into the furnishings and décor. I would recommend this cottage to anyone in the Summer or Winter.

“I'll never look anywhere else again!”
Reviewed 1 December 2014 for a stay in November 2014

I have stayed in willow cottage twice. I went firstly in September and as soon as I left I planned to go again which I did!
I have no reason to look up other cottages after staying in this one. It's so cosy and full of all sorts to keep you entertained.
I've not been disappointed in anyway with this cottage. The location is ideal and the Saunton sands car park pass is just an added bonus.
I literally can't fault this cottage and I will be looking to return soon.
Lovely cottage guys, thank you.

“Cosy, Clean and Comfortable”
Reviewed 30 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

We had an excellent stay at Willow Cottage, it was very cosy and comfortable with a gorgeous log burner, perfect for October half term weather. It makes the most of all the space available and had everything we needed for a lovely stay. Great position to access all the coast and the price was very reasonable whereas some cottages are over priced.

“Fantastic family break”
Reviewed 19 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

We loved our stay at Willow Cottage. The location is fabulous for exploration of North Devon, in a friendly little village. The local pub Ebrington Arms is within walking distance, with plenty of other places to way and drink within a short distance. The Kings Arms in Georgeham is a real gem.
The cottage was very clean, with all the little thoughtful touches to make it feel like a home from home. We had a travel cot, stair gate and high chair all provided to ensure our one year old could have a comfortable stay as well. Truly a lovely cottage, even if the living room television does have a mind of it's own! Will be back again!

We are really glad you enjoyed your break, and felt it was home from home. We followed you down for a short break ourselves at the cottage and found the same problem with the tv ... sorry we didn't know about this whist you were staying at the cottage ... however there is now a brand new 32" tv with built in dvd player! Look forward to hearing from you in the new year about your next break!
