Lovely stay at Sylvia's cottage, well equipped and comfy beds. Local cakes, milk in the fridge, a pre-made fire and age appropriate toys for our 18 month old all lovely touches. Short drive to Clovelly, a must see and Westwood Ho is a great beach for kids. We'll be back!

Me and my family stayed in Sylvie's cottage for a week and it was absolutely ideal - really charming, clean and cosy. It's in a beautiful location, with loads of north coast locations easily accessible by car. The front garden and the separate private garden were lovely too and a real bonus. We'll definitely come back if we get the chance!

House was clean and very well equipped with everything we needed. Lovely welcome card and cake on arrival! Easy to find. Garden, which is separate to house is lovely and private. We had no reason to contact the host during our stay, but communication before and after was great. Location is rural, and you will have to drive to most places, but the peace and quiet is lovely. Clovelly is a 5-10 minute drive away, and Bideford 15 minutes. Great location with easy access to main road and public transport (bus).

Sylvie's cottage was very comfortable and the rooms were all a good size. We arrived to find everything ready for us including some cake which was nice after a long journey. There's a dedicated parking space which our small SUV fit into nicely and there was also usually space on the road outside the house. The location was great - it had a country feel but wasn't far from the main road or the shops and there were loads of great attractions and beautiful beaches nearby. Sylvia had some great tips on places to go and was easy to contact.

We cannot thank Sylvia enough for her amazing hosting. Her directions were spot on as was the beautiful cottage. Extremely well equipped, everything worked that was supposed to. Some lovely personally touches on arrival too. Including 30 degree temperatures all week! Just 5 minutes from A39 so easy to get to North Devon landmarks.

Sylvie’s cottage is cosy and in a quiet rural location, well placed for exploring North Devon and Cornwall. We loved the extra touches including locally baked flapjacks and shortcake and the log burner pre-set up with logs and kindling ready to go. We had a lovely peaceful stay and would love to stay again! Sylvia’s recommendations of local places to explore and nearby places to eat were also much appreciated.

Good accessibility to the bus if you are looking to walk some of the SW Coastal path. Don’t underestimate the Hartland Point section! Very tranquil location - just the sound of birdsong. Lovely garden facility.

Great base to explore the beautiful area. Garden is a lovely private relaxing space
