Fabulous place to stay- lovely, well appointed accommodation, great dog walks from the the cottage. Owners (new since Dec) couldnt have been more helpful. Loads of kitchen equipment too for those who want to cook. Hot tub was a big hit with the teenagers. Plenty of space for our two dogs to sniff about in the secure garden.

A great base to explore the surrounding countryside and coastline. Bideford is within easy walking distance although the walk up the hill back to Seagrass is very steep. The accommodation was very clean and had everything we needed for our weeks stay and the hot tub was a relaxing treat after a days walking or cycling. The large window and bi-fold Read moredoors made this property very light and airy but it was also cosy in the evenings at this colder time of year. Hide
