“A Perfect Little Gem in a Picture Book Village near Spectacular Scenery.”
Reviewed 20 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Poppies was all we had expected from the reviews and more. Andy and Allison made us feel most welcome. Although small, the property is most tastefully appointed, making it feel spacious and providing for every need. Flowers and a cream tea greeted us and, with good weather, we had no need of the colour coordinated umbrella hanging by the door. Berrynarbour is delightful and the community shop is convenient. Poppies is perfect for relaxation or as a base from which to explore spectacular countryside. The Pack o' Cards, Combe Martin, served a very good meal. The books and detailed local maps were a much appreciated bonus. It would be good to return.

Liked best: The sense that the owners really wanted their guests to enjoy their holiday.
Liked least: The view to the front of a dilapidated building. The clematis ameliorates this and it is not a problem. The view to the rear is lovely..

“A perfect cottage for couples”
Reviewed 16 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We have just returned from a wonderful holiday in North Devon. Poppies was a perfect little cottage...clean, tasteful and with all the modern conveniences, in a tranquil location.A great location for walks from the door or days out in the car. We would definitely recommend Poppies for a holiday. Thank you Allison and Andy.

Thank you.

“Wonderful holiday spent at Poppies!”
Reviewed 27 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We had a perfect holiday at Poppies. Berrynarbor is so pretty and just a few minutes drive to Ilfracombe and Coombe Martin. Poppies was a perfect base, clean, welcoming, everything you need to relax. Wifi and Sky TV was welcomed! Andy and Alison were so friendly and we knew if we had a problem it would be solved. We would recommend Watermouth Castle just down the road, suitable for all ages. And the 2 hour Exmoor Sea Safari was fantastic at Ilfracombe Harbour. For good food we would recommend the Pack 'o' Cards in Coombe Martin.
