“Lovely cottage, superb location!”
Reviewed 31 December 2014 for a stay in December 2014

We stayed in the cottage for three nights with the children. The location is amazing, and the cottage itself is lovely, very comfortable and cozy. We went for long walks every day. We were very lucky with the weather, and December is quite empty in this area - we felt that we had the trails for ourselves!
We will return in spring, or maybe autumn.
John and Melanie were very helpful, left all the instructions, and Melanie recommended breathtaking walks.
Thanks!

“Lovely cottage, with all the equipment you might need, clean & comfortable and warm.”
Reviewed 29 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

The cottage has all you need for the day of arrival, tea, coffee, milk, sugar also no need to take tea towels and cleaning products, all provided. We met John, who was very helpful on where to go. Our dogs enjoyed the long grass on the hill looking for creatues. We are going again next year, can't wait. Told all my friends about this place.

“Fantastic setting, beautiful surroundings!”
Reviewed 29 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Family holiday, hired 4 of the 5 cottages. Very warm and welcoming. We have 2 children (5yrs and 6 months) and plenty of space for them. Bedrooms ideal sizes and stunning views from the front ones. Pond area is beautiful and very relaxing and walled/fenced for kids safety. Play area is great although a slight climb behind cottages, worth it though just to see the views. Parking wise plenty of space and room to drive as near to your door as poss for loading/unloading. Inside there is plenty of space and fully equipped kitchen etc. Great place to stay. Plenty of places to visit if you don't mind a small drive (some very windy roads so not for the wimps like me, hubby did the driving!). Minehead was a nice day out and not a bad drive distance wise. Ilfracombe was one of the prettiest places I have been with lovely little shops, harbour area, quiet beach. Lynmouth and Lynton fab although some steep roads (at least I think there were, my eyes were shut!).

Thank you for your great review. We are really happy that you all had such a great stay.
Some of the roads are indeed a bit 'exciting'! There are so many lovely little towns along the coast, Ilfracombe, Lynmouth and Minehead...

We are glad you liked our play area - our aim is to exhaust the children - hence it's up the hill ;-), and that you found the lovely peaceful pond area.
We look forward to seeing you again.

“Lovely Devon Country setting”
Reviewed 28 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014

How friendly and helpful the owners were and it was great to find that everything was beautifully clean with everything provided when we arrived to enjoy our stay.
The location was ideal for us with the hospitable Black Venus being so close and country walks for us and our dog available from the lane outside the cottage.
The back garden was secure although not private.
We would come again and recommend to our friends.

Thank you for your great review. We are very happy that you found everything that you needed in Inglenook Cottage. We are very fortunate to have the award winning Black Venus Inn nearby and the local walks are great.

We do provide a night light beside the top stair as a visual reminder and there is a vertical grab rail on the right (as you are going up the stairs)...we are sorry if you had difficulties with this.
Our Garden Cottage and Wisteria Cottage are both at ground-floor level throughout - perhaps we could interest you in one of those for your next visit?
We look forward to seeing you again.

“Lovely place”
Reviewed 5 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Inglenook is a really nice place to stay with a great old world feel to it but with all that you would expect from a holiday cottage TV/DVD, WiFi, washer, dryer, dishwasher etc. The cottage is set in really nice grounds with lots to see. Melanie and John were really welcoming. We had a great stay. Thanks.
