Lovely location and accommodation, really friendly and helpful staff. would be 5/5 but beds are not the most comfortable.
We spent 4 nights at Northcote Manor Farm in Poppy Cottage. It's in a lovely location with gorgeous views of the countryside. The Cottage was a comfortable size to sleep 6 and plenty of room in the living area for more than 10 people. Linda was lovely and very quick to respond to emails (as well as being very welcoming in person). We loved our stay and would definitely recommend it.
Received a very warm welcome on arrival and enjoyed a great long weekend in this comfortable cottage. It's location was excellent for exploring North Devon as well as heading down towards Cornwall.
Have stayed in groups of cottages before and they have all had their ups and downs. Poppy Cottage as part of Northcote Manor Farm was excellent; wonderfully clean cottages, enough room for families in each cottage, a great swimming pool and grounds, (energetic) walk to a great local pub, farm eggs on site and loads to do for the kids so that they had freedom but you were left worry-free. Only 20 mins from excellent beaches at Woolacombe, Croyde and Putsborough (highly recommended) and 10 mins from Combe Martin and Ilfracombe. We arrived on the Saturday to a Tesco delivery for our groceries and Amazon arrived with a DVD player ((£25), DVDs and some books. The cottages have video players (and there is a well-stocked library) but all the kids like to have a 'movie night' and bring DVDs but the cost of the player shared between 5 families was nothing.
If you want modern, contemporary luxury, this may not be for you but if you want a trusted environment where you can comfortably be together in an excellent base for the surrounding areas regardless of weather, I couldn't recommend anywhere better.
If I had any gripe it would be that the website could do with updating; the pictures do not do it justice and our open plan living area was extremely spacious.
