Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. Mobile phone network coverage was a challenge (which is not a bad thing). Generally O2 seems best. There is a signal in walking distance walking right out of cottage, past the farm at the end and to the top of the hill (well, 2 out of 3 phones had a signal there). June 2012.
  2. For those who love walking and the countryside, this is an ideal place to stay. It’s within easy walking distance of Watersmeet, possibly the most beautiful place in the world. Lynmouth and Lynton are a delightful walk away. May 2012.
  3. Great location for walks with the dog. A real dog-friendly property. Owners very amiable and helpful. Feb 2012.
  4. The owners made us all very welcome. The house was warm and comfortable.The small children loved it with the ducks and hens. Plenty of parking space and an enclosed garden. Oct 2011.
  5. It was very nice to have a properly dog-proofed garden with the property. I’ve stayed at places that are meant to be dog proof but my springer spaniel has always escaped before, which has been stressful. We could relax with him here. The owners were also kind & friendly. Aug 2011.
  6. We had a lovely holiday at Moorland Retreat, the cottage was clean and tidy, it was very well equipped and was very comfortable. The cottage is in a lovely country side setting which is great for relaxing, but is not too far away from Lynmouth if you need the shops or a meal out, it also has a lovely enclosed garden which was great for playing in with our children and dog. June 2011.
  7. The accommodation was like home from home. Sept 2010.
  8. Very good, spacious accommodation, well equipped, owners very helpful. Sept 2010.
  9. Cottage is 17th century and has lots of character. Very cosy with everything you need. June 2010.
  10. Spacious and well presented - all the mod cons of home, but don’t expect a mobile phone signal! Welcome pack of tea, coffee, milk and drinks for the children much appreciated. March 2010.
  11. The property was very dog friendly, secure garden and drive. The owners were lovely, were animal people themselves and having grandchildren of their own, were very accommodating, really felt like home from home and would definitely like to visit again. May 2010.
  12. The children really enjoyed the ducks, geese and hens at the property and saved some of their food every meal to feed them. There were plenty of places to visit in the local area that were easy to access. It had everything that we needed and the owners were very welcoming and very helpful. Aug 2009.
  13. House well equipped and furnished. Aug 2009.
  14. Comfortable, well equipped cottage in beautiful surroundings. May 2009.
  15. The owners of the property were very hospitable and friendly, they were extremely helpful. The accommodation was very clean and tidy with all the facilities that we could need. The location of the property was wonderful, on a working farm, our grandson was in heaven and wanted to stay there for ever (so did we). March 2009.
  16. An excellent property. The owners were very friendly and helpful. A good standard of facilities. An ideal area for exploring and walking. Great for the dog. We will definitely return. Aug 2008.
